Who We Are

We are a software agency based in Bochum, Germany, at the heart of the Ruhr Area. Since 1999 we take pride and pleasure in developing prime, successful software. Right now we are a steadily growing team of 45 people. We are developers, designers, product managers, online marketing and sales specialists. We love crafting high-end, well-designed web and mobile solutions with cutting-edge technology. We love to work with nice and professional people, that goes for colleagues and clients. We believe that working hours are lifetime as well and should have the highest quality possible.

How we work
We Are Looking for You

You love to learn new things. You are open minded and friendly in contact. You are thrilled by cutting edge technology but don't view your favourite framework and methods as a irrevocable doctrine. You love well-designed and well thought out things. You enjoy working on diverse projects and see challenges as great possibilities to exploit your full potential. You can find the sweet spot between pragmatism and well-wrought and clearly structured projects.

Our Cornerstones
Transparency trust
Transparency & Trust

We believe that the foundation of good relationships is trust, and not only a contract. To create trustful relationships between our team members and clients, we want to have the best transparency possible.

People over profit
People Over Profit

We believe, the key values for creating a healthy company culture and cultivating positive change in our society are honesty over deception, transparency over secrecy, authenticity over hype, and ultimately, people over profit.


We never stop learning. Whether it's through attending conferences, participating in in-house workshops or simply by checking out new books and screencasts. We think that everybody should be able to decide how to improve oneself and we have plenty of specialists in various fields that will guide you.

Work is life
Work Is Life

We don't believe in the term work-life balance, because we think that work time is also life time and should have the best quality possible as well as the rest of the day. That's why we put high requirements on the quality of our working time in terms of flexibility and working environment.


We use technologies that get the job done. Currently, we mainly rely on Ruby on Rails or Phoenix for back-end and ReactJS or AngularJS for the front-end. We love to dig into new frameworks, plugins and tools. Our motivation is fueled by learning new stuff and extending our skill set.

Development Potentials

We are a steadily growing company. That means that there is a lot of potential for personal development. If you want to, you'll get the chance to face newly formed challenges depending on your skillset and fields of interest.

How We Roll

We like to work in small teams. Instead of sticking to complex hierarchies, we believe in personal responsibility of every team member and the self-organising power of small groups. That goes for projects as well as for the everyday life in the agency. We believe that our customers should be in direct contact with our designers and developers right from the start to avoid ambiguity and unrealistic expectations.
