Careers / Benefits

Our employees are our most valuable asset.
We act on that principle.

Employee satisfaction is of utmost importance to us. Our employees enjoy optimal working conditions, so they work productively in a pleasant atmosphere. We also promote the personal growth of our employees, support ongoing professional development and training, and offer numerous benefits.

Well-designed offices

Our offices are well designed and well equipped: Our employees have optimal conditions to work and feel at ease. In addition to the open and appealing office spaces, these include, among others, perfectly equipped meeting rooms, lounge areas, a terrace and showers.

Freely designed workspace

We are convinced that each individual knows best how to optimize their personal workspace. Therefore, we leave the design of the workspace to our employees. Employees are equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software and can decide for themselves which technologies and work materials are necessary for their job. All workstations are equipped with dual screens. Ergonomics is also a priority: More and more employees are choosing an adjustable desk.

Transportation, meals
and many extras

So our employees can concentrate fully on their work and enjoy the best-possible working conditions, we provide many extras that make life easier for them. We offer flexible working hours, subsidized public transportation (via the "Job Ticket" scheme) and parking spaces for cars and bicycles. Our chefs cook up reasonably priced lunches and there is also a kitchen where employees can prepare their own food. Fresh fruit, snacks and beverages are free. But time away from the office is important, too: Every employee receives 30 days' annual leave. An optional company pension plan is another of AOE's benefits.

Training & perspectives

Development within the team

Our teams are agile. There are product owners, scrum masters and developers with different functions. Due to constant changes and optimization of teams and projects, it is therefore possible to have different roles within the team, to work in different projects or to change teams – depending on the best fits and always in consultation with the teams and employees. We also have a program that allows you to gain insights into other projects and tasks, without having to immediately committing to a change.

Active knowledge transfer

Not only the expertise of the individual employees is important to us – knowledge transfer within teams is also actively promoted. There are regular meetings of communities of interest, user groups and other meetings that are organized and held independently by the employees. In addition, we provide scrum workshops and English courses, and have a library with specialist books. Haven't found your topic? Then organize your own meeting or a suitable improvement at the six-monthly Open Friday, where your suggestion is discussed, voted on and implemented by the entire team.

Atmosphere & work-life balance

Positive work-life balance

In sports, breaks are very important for increasing performance – the same applies to our work. We believe a good work-life balance is crucial for employees to perform at their best and work in a harmonious environment. Overtime is taboo. In the rare cases where it is absolutely necessary, employees receive time off in lieu. This approach is popular: kununu rated AOE second-best for most family-friendly company in Germany – with 4.7 out of 5 points.

Work hard, play hard

If you work hard, you can also allow yourself some fun. Our offices are equipped accordingly. Naturally, we have table soccer, table tennis and a pool table – but we also have a whole lot more for employees to recharge their batteries and enjoy quick, fun breaks. Regular gaming highlights can be found in our FIFA League on the PlayStation. We also meet employees' relaxation needs – with a massage chair and our own in-house Thai massage studio.

Teamplay.
During leisure time too

If you like, you can socialize outside of working hours, too. We have various sports groups at AOE such as soccer, badminton, volleyball, running, swimming and bouldering. In addition, there are self-organized team evenings, either with specific activities such as movies or games, or where those interested get together at a local pub to talk about topics of the day. Our big events are highlights: In the winter we take our annual ski trip and during the summer we have a summer party for the entire family.
