  • Several years of relevant experience in structure-based documentation and product communication (XML, DITA or DocBook), XML-based author-management or content-management systems or translation-memory systems such as SDL Trados Studio.

  • Experience in software development is preferable.

  • Skills in web front-end development, Java back-end development, XSLT/XPATH and Adobe Creative Cloud are beneficial.

  • You will communicate on eye level with the various interest groups.

  • You have a very strong command of written and spoken German and English and have sound spelling and grammar.

  • In addition, you are a confident team player with a focus on results.

  • We count on flat hierarchies and quick decision-making channels and every employee has the possibility to contribute to the company’s development via monthly pulse surveys and our Circles initiative, which allows our employees from any department to get involved with any project which sparks their interest.

  • You can find a large scope for personal and professional development. Aside from the annual development dialogue with your manager, by using a dedicated tool you are able to give and request feedback from anybody at any time.

  • We offer flexible working hours and the possibility of home office.
