As an expanding, international company, we offer you the freedom to realise your potential in this challenging environment. We will support you in this by providing internal training and free specialist literature.

Our work in small, project-oriented teams enables a flat hierarchy in which all colleagues - from trainees to CEO - are on first name terms. It is important to us that we treat each other respectfully, openly, and honestly. In order to ensure the best possible cross-location cooperation and communication, all employees have access to common means of communication such as video conferences in addition to e-mail, telephone and chat.

Combining work and family is very important to us. We are keen to enable our employees to have a high degree of flexibility in both working location and hours, whilst at the same time enabling team social interaction and belonging. Employment at MACD is possible either full-time or part-time; we look forward to finding a suitable solution together with you.

Our offices are centrally located and can be easily reached by public transport.

Software development is a universal skill and works best when carried out by teams with a diverse background and range of experiences, both in work and life. We seek to actively encourage this diversity. 

Come and help us achieve these goals together.
