What We Stand For
For us at INFORM, community is more than just a word. Because we know: Teamwork makes the dream work! Since we can only achieve our goals as a team, our culture is characterized especially by openness, mutual trust and humanity. Even though we have grown a lot over the years, we have always maintained flat hierarchies, an “open door” policy and our team sprit. Respectful interaction with one another and as well as open and honest communication are of course important matters for us. We are all on first name terms – from the boss to the trainee – because it suits our working atmosphere. We are all INFORM and only together we are team winner.
Our success is based on our diversity: At INFORM we have colleagues from over 30 nations who contribute to innovation with their different perspectives and professional expertise. This results in the perfect mix of people and skills which not only allows us to learn from each other, but also to successfully master every challenge together. It does not matter whether you are a specialist or generalist, professional or newbie – we respect and value every personality because we all have something to give that furthers us in the project and as a community.
Even if we are successful today, we are not resting on our laurels, but are working on the future. We are open to new things, like to be inspired by good ideas and always want to improve existing processes. This is exactly why we take the liberty of giving our employees individual design possibilities in their job and thus the necessary space for personal and entrepreneurial progress. Our teams are supported by managers in such a way that they can act independently. As a result, everyone can take on his/her job with a lot of personal responsibility and thus has the opportunity to make a difference.
Our Social & Ecological Engagement
Sustainability has long been a corporate goal of INFORM. In this way, our products actively contribute to reducing emissions. Our software solutions lead to an increase in efficiency, especially in logistics e.g. in freight traffic and trans-shipment centers. This ensures that there is no unnecessary idling and that increased pollutant emissions are avoided.
In addition to the environmentally conscious design of our INFORM campus, the sustainable relationship with our employees is also important to us, which is why we here also follow the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and promote the compatibility of family and work at INFORM through various measures.
Moreover, we care about social projects, which is why INFORM supports a large number of institutions, foundations and associations financially. Above all, local institutions from the region around Aachen are important to us.
Varied Advanced Training Opportunities
Advanced training offers, language courses and coaching – with a wide range of offers at our INFORM academy, nothing stands in the way of part-time lifelong learning.
Flexible Working Times
Whether at six in the morning or at three in the afternoon – with us you work according to your time constraints. With the INFORM time-out account, you also have the opportunity to save working time in the form of money so that you can later take a fully financed time-out, e.g. for a sabbatical or temporary part-time work.
You want to work flexibly from home or on the go? With us you can use the advantages of remote working. As part of the “workation” you also have the opportunity to work from another EU country for three months a year.
Nursery School / Childcare Subsidy
In our U3 daycare group, parents know that their children from the age of 6 months are well looked after and can therefore optimally concentrate on their work. In addition, we offer childcare subsidy.

We value your health. Therefore, you can expect a variety of health and sports offers at INFORM:
- Company doctor / medical check-ups

What would work be without lunch and coffee breaks? In our canteens you will find a wide range of meals for a varied diet. In addition, fruit and vegetable baskets ensure healthy snacks in between.
Company Pension Scheme
As part of a direct insurance (conventional or investment-based pension insurance), you get to make use of retirement arrangements while you are still working. INFORM works with two independent consulting companies and pays the consulting costs for you.
Regular company and team events, such as Christmas parties, company outings or our annual summer party, to which the whole family is invited, support the working atmosphere and ensure a fun time with colleagues.
