discover your benefits

What would a company be without its employees?

We can answer this question quite clearly for ourselves: Because our employees are the heart of SDA SE and are our clear priority. It is our aim to support our colleagues in their daily work as best we can. The Top Company Seal 2022 from kununu confirms that we already do a very good job in this area.

SDA SE offers a wide range of benefits to help make our employees’ workplace as pleasant and motivating as possible and to help them succeed in their work:

Comprehensive Onboarding
– entry made easy

During your onboarding days, you will get to know your team and the entire SDA SE, as well as everything you need to know about the Service Dominated Architecture and our products. From day 1, you will also have a personal contact person, your so-called buddy. He or she will be available to answer all your questions, have a coffee chat with you and give you a tour of our beautiful office.
We value open and honest communication, which is why regular feedback meetings take place, where impressions and experiences can be shared. Of course, this is not a one-way street, because we welcome and appreciate every suggestion that contributes to continuously improving our daily work and our interactions.

Flexible working times
early bird or night owl? –


No matter whether you’re an early bird or a night owl – with us, you decide when to work.
You alone best know your most productive hours and the dates of your private appointments. Do you have a doctor’s appointment or need to look after children during the day? With us, that’s no problem! We want you to be able to harmonise your professional and private life as best possible so as to achieve an ideal work-life balance. That’s why, with us, you have the chance to organise your working hours flexibly and on your own responsibility, in the way that suits you best.

Mobile working
– the best of both worlds

Have you turned your home into a perfect work oasis and want to carry on using it in the future? Do you also, however, want to communicate with your colleagues in person, and not have to miss using the height-adjustable desks from where you can enjoy the view offered by our office on the 21st floor of the “Dancing Towers”?
Thanks to mobile working, you can have both!
Upon arrangement with our HR team, we will give you the opportunity to work remotely several days a week. Thus, on the one hand, you can use the advantages of our office facilities to exchange ideas with colleagues and clients, and on the other hand, you can work from the comfort of your own home.

work where others go on vacation –

Workation in the Mountains

Whether you like a fresh sea breeze in your hair while sitting on a small balcony in Lisbon sipping coffee, a hiking vacation in the mountains of South Tyrol or strolling through the cafés in Paris – at SDA SE you can now work where others go on vacation – up to 6 weeks abroad in the EU! This takes your lunch break and after-work break to a new level and guarantees a mood boost.
If you don’t want to work on the beach, that’s no problem either. Because we offer you 30 (+1) days of vacation with full-time employment. And on top of that, there is a permanent employment contract with an attractive salary, so that you can really enjoy yourself on vacation.

State-of-the-art technologies
– always at the forefront

For high-quality performance, we rely on high-quality technologies. To be able to perform your work in the best possible way, you will be equipped with the latest Apple products. In our everyday work, we use modern programs such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Jira/ Confluence for internal organization and communication. In addition, we use the latest tools and technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, Java, TypeScript, Angular, NodeJS, Apache Kafka, Jenkins and GitHub in our autonomous teams for the further development of our SDA platform. This way you can drive the development of innovative services and open source solutions together with our experts.

Further training opportunities and networking
always up-to-date –

We will support you in keeping up-to-date in your field of work. As we are interested in your personal development, together with you we will look for the ideal training opportunities to suit you and help you advance in your job.
Are you also interested in getting to know more like-minded people? We will be pleased to enable you to participate in networking events and activities.

Team events
– only as a team are we strong

Whether in the home office or on site – the exchange and communication among each other forms the basis for good collaboration. That’s why we regularly hold team events and meetings with our colleagues. These range from joint coffee breaks, monthly breakfast meetings to foosball and table tennis tournaments and regular internal company events. As an agile company with an international team and English as the team language, we place great value on encouraging exchange among each other and strengthening cohesion – because one thing is clear: only as a team are we strong!

Agile coaches 
agile and iterative to the goal –

At SDA SE, we live an agile mindset and culture. Therefore, you will be supported in your daily work by our energetic Agile Coaches. They accompany and advise the different teams individually in order to promote effective collaboration, strong team autonomy as well as positive team dynamics. They support the introduction and implementation of agile frameworks such as Kanban, Scrum, Design Thinking and much more. However, there are no specific rules in this regard. Our motto is: “The proof of the pudding is in the eating”. Each team has the freedom to adapt those methods and practices that work best for them. This agile approach enables us to never stand still, but to work iteratively and to continuously learn to think things in a new way.

Our Office
a feel-good place to work

Our office is located on the 21st floor of the Tanzende Türme (Dancing Towers) with a breathtaking view over the whole of Hamburg – from the Alster to the Elbe. But don’t worry, there are plenty of elevators! The convenient location right on the Reeperbahn is ideal for great lunch deals and cozy after-work drinks. We have a clean desk policy, so you can choose your workspace depending on what you feel like. There are height-adjustable desks, comfortable chairs where you can retreat, various meeting rooms for your individual needs, and a larger area where all our colleagues like to gather. For example, for our regular internal pizza update.

Creative freedom 
work in line with your ideas –

Help to shape the future of SDA SE – thanks to flat hierarchies and short decision-making paths, you will have a great deal of freedom and scope to contribute and implement your own ideas. Would you like to contribute your expertise regarding optimal work processes, organise a team event or suggest potential improvements?
Use this chance and design your work together with us in line with your ideas.

Urban Sports Club
– stay fit and healthy

Do you feel like pushing your limits while working out? Or would you rather go to a relaxed yoga class? Or maybe you’re more in the mood for Pilates in the park or a swimming class? It doesn’t matter what you choose, because we offer it all. How? It’s simple: with our Corporate Benefit Urban Sports Club. As an employee of SDA SE, you can easily become a member and take advantage of the extensive offer of sports courses – in various gyms, at different locations and whenever it suits you. And if that’s not enough, we offer you additional benefits in our office, such as a table tennis table, dartboard, football table, balance boards, massage guns and more.

let others drive for you –

Fast, easy and uncomplicated travel through Hamburg or even the whole of Germany? That’s easy – because we subsidize the Deutschlandticket! So you not only save a lot of money, but also time and nerves. While others are stuck in traffic jams, you can get to your destination in complete comfort – whether by bus, regional train, tram or subway. The Deutschlandticket is valid for all public transport vehicles throughout Germany. The best thing about it? You get it as a convenient digital ticket on your smartphone.

– food for thought

So that you can start work refreshed and do not lack the “brain food” you need, we will provide you with fresh fruit and free drinks every day at our office.
