Get to know your future colleagues
What does the typical working day look like for Stefanie, Open-Source Software Consultant, and what did Arvid, Team Lead Software Engineering, have the most respect for in his job interview? Let your future team colleagues tell you what working at Univention is like for them.
My life is ruled by SCRUM and Bugzilla – just kidding. It’s actually quite a dynamic mix of tasks, partly technical, but there is also intensive communication in and between teams. The only recurring fixed date that I have 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.
The development of employees and teams is my passion. Every day I am striving to take our organization to the next level.
Working as a consultant is an interesting mixture of IT know-how and customer contact to me.
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.
Univention gives me a lot of freedom to develop. Also, Univention pursues social goals in addition to monetary ones. I am happy to contribute to the further spread of OpenSource software and digital sovereignty.
Our Vision: Creating Digital Sovereignty for the World
We all leave traces and data on the web – sometimes voluntarily, but very often without having any influence on it. That’s exactly what we want to change! We have made it our mission to advance digital sovereignty across the world by raising awareness for and facilitating a more informed 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 at the company.

At Univention, we cultivate a corporate culture that enables each individual employee to develop their potential, drive projects forward, develop and take on responsibility. We work together as equals and regard performance and innovative ideas as more important than hierarchies.
