Working at ELEPHANS

Corporate culture

We associate the name ELEPHANS with professionalism and dynamic. But the name also hides the core statements of our corporate philosophy: That by which we are characterized and what our employees appreciate about us.

Professionalism

Our professionalism demonstrates itself in our clear, structured procedures in projects: through the application of procedure models, the compliance with quality standards and the high demands for documentation and concepts. It is also reflected in our experience with large-scale projects and in the high investment into our staff’s further training. We take a professional attitude and behaviour of our employees, when dealing with customers and colleagues, for granted.

Transparency

We offer a philosophy with clear structures: in a competence-oriented matrix organization that depicts for every employee who is an expert in which area. This also includes involving clients and staff into project processes (Confluence, JIRA), so that everybody knows the actual project status.

Teamwork

Our corporation is characterized by flat hierarchies. Changing project teams and intensive exchange of know-how is the base for good teamwork beyond project barriers. Our dynamic Solution Center and specialist areas combine employees of different seniorities and project teams and ensure project independent communication and cooperation – based on appreciation and respect.

Further training

High investment into the further training of our employees ensures their individual opportunities for development and our long-term leadership in the area of Java Enterprise technologies. We ensure these through the ELEPHANS Academy.

Dynamic

Since our technological environment is characterized by strong transformation processes and further development, we put strong emphasis on intensive internal communication and short communication channels. We ensure the latter through Instant Messaging, a dynamic intranet (Confluence, JIRA) and the respective working equipment for our employees.

Trust

Trust constitutes an integral part of a solid, continuous cooperation. We see clients and employees as our long-term partners. For us, far-sighted and responsible acting in accordance with our clients‘ and our employees‘ requirements, as well as absolute reliability, go without saying.

Initiative

In order to realize the best possible solutions for our clients, we expect and reward the proactivity of our employees. We explicitly wish for the acceptance of responsibility, be it within the company and its internal structure, or through recognizing and seizing project opportunities.

Social benefits

Working with ELEPHANS is like working with good friends. The corporate culture is based on community spirit, passion and joy in what we do. We expect a lot from our employees – high-quality software, professional appearance, dedication and ideas. An environment in which everyone feels comfortable is the best way to reach it. 

For this reason, our social benefits are multifaceted, so that everyone can feel comfortable and we can grow together to be successful.

Living healthy

We at ELEPHANS love sports. There are colleagues at every location who meet after work for sports and do something for their work-life-balance. Every year we participate in a marathon in a major European city, go on hiking tours, take part in the Tough Mudder or develop other exciting events. Besides doing something for our fitness we bring team spirit to all our colleagues. Opening up new horizons together and enjoying the feeling of being able to deal with everything – this is something we are very proud of at ELEPHANS.

Mobility

To take the travel to our projects as pleasant as possible ELEPHANS takes care of it. This can be a railway pass, a monthly ticket or even a company car. The cars are usually Audi or BMW.

ELEPHANS provides project apartments and other attractive benefits if your next project is in another city or even abroad.

Work equipment

Through ELEPHANS ´s excellent work equipment we achieve flexibility on various projects and with various customers. This includes laptops and smartphones, both privately and for work related reasons. If something else is needed for a customer project, our Application Management team provides everything that is necessary.

Employee services

Want to change your location or do you need to move? Our Office Management team would like to assist you in moving and finding a new apartment. All project-related travel bookings are centrally booked by our travel management. To ensure that no disadvantages arise in the case of small business expenses, ELEPHANS provides its employees with a corporate credit card.

For the family

We at ELEPHANS are networked across many locations. Co-workers tend to know each other both privately as well as professionally very well. Therefore, we care greatly about the well-being of your family. Once a year, we celebrate a large summer party with friends, families and children. And we were proud to celebrate together with 130 of our colleagues´ children last year.

Employee development

ELEPHANS invests a lot in the training of our employees. We appreciate the thirst for knowledge of our colleagues, which often goes beyond the actual project activities. In addition to trainings of our academy, an in-house library and various journals, we are members of the Java User Group. We offer our employees support and a working time model that fits to a master’s program.
