Benefits you will receive

We ask a lot of our employees, which is why we give so much in return. In addition to your competitive salary, flexible annual working time, flat hierarchies, and short decision paths, we offer you further benefits, including:

  • Professional training and development opportunities: For our data engineers, we offer attractive development opportunities in the domain of modern software development, especially for those coming from other engineering and scientific disciplines.
  • Flexibility: We are always happy to meet each other in the office but also offer the full flexibility that comes with mobile work according to personal preferences and circumstances. We also offer flexible working hours and the possibility to work part-time, so that there is always enough time for recreation and extra-occupational activities.
  • Family friendliness: Kids are always welcome in the Karakun family and can occasionally be met at the working place. Our flexible working hours make it easy to combine family life and work.
  • Freedom of choice: We offer a generous personal hardware and training budget, which is managed autonomously. Simply choose the hardware, training and certification courses that work best for you.
  • Location: Our offices are conveniently located in Stuttgart/Vaihingen and are within a few minutes’ walk from the train station.
  • Ownership: Karakun is owned by its employees. After completing your first year with us, you are entitled to acquire shares in the company and thus participate directly in our success.
  • Community: Many colleagues participate in conferences and are active speakers on stage. Feel encouraged to do the same and expand your personal network as well as that of our company.
  • Code Camp: Twice a year, all interested employees meet at our retreat in the Swiss Alps, where we try out new ideas, methods and technologies.
  • Continuous Improvement: We never want to stop improving. Therefore, once a year we organise a Continuous Improvement Workshop, at which all employees come together and discuss ways to make Karakun even better.
