Why work for gds?
The requirements for technical documentation and all of its sub-sections have continued to grow in the past few years. For us, as a full-service provider of products and services ranging from A, as in Author Support, to X, as in XML file formats, this invariably means facing and coping with new challenges, which is never boring. The segments in which we work and where you can realize your full potential are just as varied as the demands on the industry.
No matter which of our locations, we are looking for people who enjoy their work and who are capable of thinking outside of the box to find solutions, whether for the development of software or in sales. A corporate culture characterized by transparency and collaboration pervades all departments.
We want you to feel good about joining us. This includes many extra perks not only to sweeten your daily work routine, but because we are of the opinion that work should not just serve to earn a living. Employment at gds involves the following points:
»We offer good training and development opportunities, because it is important to us first and foremost that we work well together. Lack of knowledge can be acquired - you never stop learning anyway.«
1. We employ people who share our vision
… which is why we place less emphasis on your previous career and more on where the path may lead us together.
2. Don’t stay rooted in one spot
… because movement helps to keep you flexible and makes work enjoyable. The large number of work areas and interesting locations can create a desire for change within the company – and why not?
3. Making mistakes is a positive thing
… because that’s what learning is all about. Mistakes not only prompt us to do better and learn but they also lead to new ideas.
4. From people for people
… those who offer full service to their customers should do the same for their employees. We value a work-life balance and respect your life situation irrespective of your age, personal situation or opinions.
5. We maintain our own social network
… because enthusiasm and collaboration are high on our list of priorities, i.e., no lone wolves or flat hierarchies. “Together we are strong” may be used all too often but it does hold true.
6. No room for boredom
… all areas of technical documentation are invariably subject to change. This is what makes our work exciting, varied, interesting and creative. We adapt our products to the customer and not the other way around. This lets us grow together and assures sustainable success – for everyone.
