My life is ruled by SCRUM and Bugzilla – just kidding. It’s actually quite a dynamic mix of tasks, partly technical but also quite a lot of communication in and between teams. The only fixed date recurring every day are the SCRUM dailies.

Even as a working student with less weekly working hours, I always feel involved and am treated as a full-fledged colleague. Therefore I am all the more happy to start working for Univention directly after my studies as IT system engineer.

What I particularly like about my training is that I was allowed to work directly on the product from the very beginning. I have always received a lot of support but also trust.

IT Project Manager Arjen talks about his work at Univention

Univention is not a typical hierarchical company. At Univention, being a Project Manager for example is not about hierarchy, but a Project Manager is just another role to make things work.

Digital Sovereignty: Univention Vision

Our Vision: Creating Digital Sovereignty for the World

We all leave traces and data on the web – sometimes voluntarily, but very often without being able to influence it ourselves. That’s exactly what we want to change! It is our claim to advance digital sovereignty in the world by raising awareness for and enabling a more conscious use of IT. With the use of 100% open source software and the possibility to decide at any time to whom we hand over which data, we ensure transparency and control over data, processes and software. Because only those who have full freedom of choice can define who they are and what role they want to play in a digital world. Learn more about our vision and how we live it in the company.

Our Culture: What makes us tick

At Univention, we cultivate a corporate culture that enables every employee to develop their potential, drive projects forward, develop themselves further and take on responsibility. We meet each other at eye level, respect performance and good ideas and not hierarchies.

Our five core values form the basis: openness, integrity, respect, responsibility, and development. We have developed these in a mutual exchange, regularly put them to the test of practical cooperation and constantly develop them further.
