What you can expect from us:
Meaningful projects: We don’t just communicate and make PowerPoint slide decks. We develop and support our clients in the long term – in exciting industries and technologies. We work with end users and management. We don’t just make recommendations; we also build and develop. We experience the effects of our work – and use this knowledge to improve.
Your ideal workplace: Remotely from your home office, in one of our beautiful city centre hubs in Berlin, Frankfurt am Main or Munich – or a mixture of both? Crucial: Where can you work most easily and efficiently with your team and your clients? Whether you prefer a Mac or PC, we provide you with the optimal equipment.
Consultancy and travel: In our projects, we have a say as to when on-site appointments make sense – and when they do not. This lets us reduce travel as well as act sustainably.
Work-life balance: We offer fair overtime compensation from the first minute on, flexible working hours and sabbaticals.
Family-friendly: We have many parents in our teams – working both full- & part-time. In Munich, we even have some reserved childcare spots at a partner nursery school.
Mobility: Do you have a customer appointment that’s inconvenient to reach with public transportation? Then grab one of our hybrid company automobiles from the vehicle pool.
Communication – inside and outside of our teams: We keep in touch and stick together. Online and offline. We provide good project onboarding – together we find out where and how you can have the best impact. Various team and Ray Sono formats provide support and create space for internal communication.
Continuing education & career paths: You participate in our numerous internal "Ray Academy" formats and create a personal development plan with your manager – including external coaching or customised training measures. Regardless of whether your long-term goal is personnel responsibility, professional leadership, or something else entirely, we support you along your journey.
Become part of our culture: Whether you are the top scorer in the "RasenMayors” Football Club, have the best skateboard or inline skating choreography in the “RollingRays” or are a new singing talent in “RayC/DC”, our own band, you’ll definitely find like-minded people. You can also get involved in one of our pro bono projects (“Ray Helps”) and assist the Tabaluga Children's Foundation, for example.
