Gerne können Sie die offene Position mit Ihrem Netzwerk teilen!

Das Besondere an unserer Arbeitskultur sind flache Hierarchien und kurze Entscheidungswege. Operatives Tagesgeschäft, Strategieentwicklung sowie Projektarbeit sorgen für ein breites Spektrum von Verantwortlichkeiten und Gestaltungspielraum.
Internationalität prägt unseren Alltag. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Mitarbeitenden der Tochtergesellschaften in Europa und den USA fördern den interkulturellen Austausch.  

Jeder Mitarbeitende ist aufgefordert, unser Unternehmen, unsere Kultur und die Digitale Transformation in der TAKKT-Gruppe aktiv mitzugestalten. Wir probieren Neues aus und lernen gemeinsam, auch aus unseren Fehlern. So testen wir beispielsweise agile Arbeitsweisen wie Scrum und arbeiten in Projekten interdisziplinär und hierarchieübergreifend zusammen. Auch unsere Beteiligung an Start-Ups ist dabei eine Inspiration und unterstützt uns darin, neue Wege zu gehen.
