There are healthier activities than working. Like our healthy workplace program with annual on-site health services. At the Stuttgart HQ, we also have an exercise room, a ping pong table, showers, and lockers. Outside the office spaces, sports groups also meet regularly for yoga, soccer, beach volleayball and other activities.
Ben, Kala, Bobby, Sissi, Hakon, Platon, and other dogs are incredibly cute and allowed in our offices. To accomodate the needs of all our colleagues, there are also dog-free zones and a couple of other principles to consider when bringing a four-legged companion.
By the way: The Stuttgart HQ also has thousands of other “pets” in our two beehives.
Evaluation sheets? Not necessarily what will help either you or us. We work and talk as a team. Everyone gives and gets feedback. Whenever you need us, we’re happy to talk about your development. And once a year, we’ll sit down together to map out your future at AEB.
AEB doesn’t belong to just anyone – it belongs to us. This frees us from the financial interests of outside investors. Lets us follow our own entrepreneurial philosophy.
Holding shares gives you the special opportunity of being a co-owner of AEB and thus to participate twice in one's own success - operationally in day-to-day work and through strategic decisions as a shareholder.
Playing field, not career ladder: At AEB, we don’t think in hierarchies. When you take charge of your space, move the ball forward, change the game, and help achieve a good outcome, you help the whole team. That’s how you move forward on your career path – and expand your playing field.
Let’s be honest: Work can be exhausting. Even at AEB. But we still have fun – even off the job. Like at our company game nights. With the AEB BÄND. At fusball matches. Or on a ski trip to the Alps. Our legendary AEB parties are organized by us and celebrated together – sometimes even with the whole family.
We have a purpose, and it’s not just our software. We also create purpose with the 'AEB-Stiftung', a charitable foundation dedicated to fostering equal opportunity for disadvantaged people through access to education.
AEB is a company on the move. Thanks to subsidies that incentivize our employees to use public transportation. Thanks to electric company cars, also available for private use. And thanks to affordable job bikes. Our Stuttgart HQ even has bike parking and EV charging stations.
You might find another company out there that will offer you a higher starting salary than we do. But the whole package of transparent, semi-annual salary reviews where your voice is heard, plus benefits ranging from job bikes to profit sharing to stock options – that might be harder to find.
No 9-to-5 here: Flexible models means that your work schedule is organized around when you work best. Use our worktime account to fund your time off.
We want you: Your ideas, your thoughts, and your ability to move yourself and the company forward. We believe that your authentic self is your best self. That’s why we give you the ability and the space to be who you really are.
How did we become a multiplier for sustainability? By offering climate-neutral cloud software to our customers, installing our own photovoltaic systems, and sponsoring our own piece of peatland. But most importantly, by the attitude of our colleagues. Having sustainability in mind in all their decisions.
As part of our health promotion, we subsidize a membership in the EGYM Wellpass network. This gives employees the opportunity to benefit from various sports activities in their area. Everything is included: fitness studios, swimming pools, yoga and more. The partnerships currently cover Germany and Austria.
Even though we always offer space for exchange, help, or advice, we sometimes also need a confidential and anonymous contact when we have problems. To help you keep your mental health, we work with Instahelp, a digital platform that offers psychological counseling and prevention. Within a very short period of time, you can get in touch with an experienced psychologist to get counseling and support via the platform.
We are continuosly striving to create an inclusive environment that embraces diversity and meets the individual needs of all people. What this means: We do not tolerate any discrimination, be it based on age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background or religion. A community of people from all divisions is working on diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives to ensure AEB remains a welcoming place where every individual can thrive.
The best way to work is to have common goals and achieve them cooperatively. That's why, as a permanent employee, you get paid a variable remuneration each year. The amount is based on the success of our last financial year and is calculated by X percent of your last year's salary.
“I work 30 hours a week, or 75 percent. Simply because it allows me to have a better quality of life. I also took 4 weeks of unpaid leave in 2022 so that I could focus on my part-time applicant coaching business and visit my family. It was worth it!”
“For me it’s 85 percent. My wife works three days, so I get the kids ready for daycare in the morning and sometimes pick them up and then take care of them in the afternoon. So my work schedule gives me exactly the flexibility I need. I’m on site in Mainz about once a week, and soon I’ll be going there with my new job bike.”
“After my second parental leave, I couldn’t imagine returning to a desk job at 75 percent. That’s why I decided to work outdoors in nature for a few hours a week. Now I work 60 percent at AEB and at a gardening company on the side. This combination turned out to be a great fit for me – the jobs complement each other well.”
“I use our annualized worktime model to save up overtime. This allows me to take off more time in the summer to volunteer at kids’ camps.”
We are very mindful of the needs of our communities and teams. That means that if a team needs everyone to be in the same room – for workshops, brainstorming, or team-building – then that’s part of your commitment to the team. But as a general rule, you can work from home as much as you need to work effectively.
We are employee-owned. That means that all shareholders are AEB employees. All permanent employees are given the opportunity to buy shares after two years with the company.
No company exists in a vacuum. That’s why we’ve taken the initiative to address our impact on the environment and society, are making our decisions based on the triad "ecological, social, economic". We are gradually implementing programs to ensure that we play a positive role in protecting the environment and creating a just society. We source our food sustainably, we’re mindful about how we book business travel – and much more. Click here for more details.
Some areas such as support require you to be available at certain times. Teams work internally to coordinate who covers which shift. But essentially, you’ll work a schedule that works best for you. For orientation: a full-time position at AEB means 40 hours a week. But we offer nearly every conceivable part-time model and are always happy when our employees spend their non-working hours volunteering, trying new things, realizing their full potential, or raising the next generation.
