A major industrial player versus a start-up? Not at Körber! Here we combine the best of both worlds.
Most of the time Joschka works in Hamburg, the city he moved to in 2010. “But I travel a lot,” he says. He spends several days a month at Körber subsidiaries so that he can talk with the employees face to face. “This is how I get to know the requirements for each site’s business operations,” he says. “These operations range from manufacturing to system integration and software production. As an industrial engineer, of course I enjoy the fact that I still have a close connection with production.”
Körber IT Solutions, whose employees form a multicultural team, regards itself as a start-up within this major technology player. “We’ve got very flat hierarchies, and all of us are on a first-name basis. We’ve also got open workspaces and flexible work times,” Joschka says. “That means I can work anywhere, at times that I choose myself.” He became familiar with the work processes at Körber while he was doing a work-study program.
