PONTON is in many ways a special employer and more than a classic software company. Our business strategy is a mix of proven core business and innovative research-oriented projects; hence we are characterized by a successful mix of healthy growth combined with a low staff fluctuation.
We want to feel good at work – after all, we spend most of the day together.
What we value
We cultivate a constructive and open corporate culture. We see feedback as a chance to improve ourselves and to eliminate any possible grievances as quickly as possible.
We value self-responsible action and own ideas. We help each other and share our knowledge with colleagues – for example in so called “Brown Bag Sessions”.
We are constantly evolving, since especially in the technical area standstill always means a step backwards. For this reason, we also support and promote professional development.
Our values are probably best reflected in our working atmosphere and activities.
What you can expect
We are a diverse group of humorous, dedicated and helpful colleagues, who maintain a familiar and friendly working atmosphere. But team spirit is not only relevant in a business context. We have our own corporate band „Peak Load“, which performs at company events and a PONTON Racing Team, which participates at several running events such as the HASPA Marathon.
We are based in modern, bright and spacious offices right next to a canal in one of the most beautiful districts of Hamburg – Winterhude. The immediate vicinity of the Mühlenkamp and Alster offers numerous opportunities for having lunch breaks or after work activities. Some colleagues, for example use their lunch time for sailing, running or stand-up paddling.
Since many of our colleagues have children, we regularly organize events such as Summer or Christmas parties for our PONTON families, including partners and children. On top of that we yearly celebrate our Honey Festival, where we harvest the honey of our own bees and learn a lot about these beneficial insects.
