Our values

Which values are important to us as an employer?

As a small independent unit with a start-up atmosphere, we have flat hierarchies and open doors. Not because we have to, but because we think that working in this way helps us to achieve our goals quicker and more easily. Every single member of the team is valuable and plays an important role.

Everyone is on an equal footing and this is evident in many ways:

  • We view clothes as a feel-good factor.
  • Everyone is addressed as equals.
  • Every employee’s opinion is important and listened to.

In short: We are direct and pragmatic, real doers.

Joining Us

Our approach to the onboarding of new colleagues is “come in and find out.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean that we just leave new employees to fend for themselves. We host onboarding events, organized centrally, once a month, which have been attended by as many as 150 new starters in the past. We also take advantage of the sociable nature of our small unit to help “newbies” get to know the ins and outs of STACKIT in a friendly and structured way. When you join us, you will learn from and with your fellow team members on both a professional and personal level.

Your colleagues have a lot of time for you and will be happy to answer your questions outside of the normal working day too on occasion – perhaps over a good cup of coffee in one of our tea kitchens.

The conditions we offer are truly unique in our region – and we’re not exaggerating!

The proof:

  • not a conventional canteen, but a top employee restaurant
  • not the statutory minimum leave, but 30 days’ leave
  • individual flexibility in terms of where and when you work
  • financial support if you use alternative modes of transport
  • countless sport opportunities
  • health care – from dentists to vaccinations.

And best of all: As we are part of the Schwarz Group, we are probably one of the few start-up-like units in Germany who not only offer a very attractive remuneration package and lots of freedom, but also secure employment. All excellent reasons to join us!
