Right in the heart of Berlin, over 800 employees from 40 nations are working on the future of online shopping. We focussing on agile and self-reliant work, sustainability and a healthy relationship between work and private life. These values are firmly anchored in our corporate culture and an integral part of our corporate philosophy.
As part of our team, you can look forward to freedom, an international and inspiring working environment. Your ideas are particularly important to us. Not only our product portfolio is diverse, but also the people who work on it. We want you just as you are! Origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation or a severely handicapped degree do not play a role.
Our employees make up our company and are the most important component of our success. The more than 800 idealos come from a wide variety of backgrounds and combine a wide range of expertise.
We actively promote conscious living and working at idealo. For us, this means that there is plenty of room for private life and family.
Family friendliness is firmly anchored in our values and is exemplified by the management level. In addition to flexible working time models and our emergency childcare, we have had a daycare centre close to our company in the idealo courtyards since 2015.
We believe in freedom from work and the balance of work and private life. We want to spend our time working in an environment in which family, private life and career can be aligned.
Trust is the basis for freedom. Both in the relationship of a company to its employees and in the relationship of colleagues among each other. Where there is little trust, excessive control is the result.
In order for trust to exist, responsibility is needed: the responsible filling of one's own free spaces and the responsible handling of the free spaces of others.
Openness and honesty are the basis for our dealings with each other. They allow us to work together in mutual trust as a team and as a community and to achieve more with more joy than we could on our own.
We have the courage to take responsibility for our own work - and the courage to stand by our own mistakes and deal with them. The one does not work without the other. We show tolerance for the mistakes of others, so that it is easier for everyone to openly admit their own mistakes.
We act sincerely and in accordance with our beliefs. We stand behind our statements and put our words into action. We maintain this integrity within idealo, but also towards our users and partners.
We at idealo understand sustainability as a symbiosis of economy, ecology and social commitment. We want to promote a "more conscious life" and advocate responsible use of the limited resources of our world.
From the "sozialo day" to spontaneous fundraising: at idealo we get down to it. We don't need endless explanations to stand up for people and the environment. We make it easy! We tackle where help is needed; not where the most attention beckons. Idealo is not only active itself, but also promotes the commitment of its employees.
"If our colleagues contribute to strengthening society, it is important that we as entrepreneurs promote this commitment," says Albrecht von Sonntag, Managing Director.
idealo stands for internationality. This applies equally to our employees and to our product. Colleagues from over 40 nations work together at our headquarters in Berlin Kreuzberg.
