I am a developer. With all my heart. And it's great that I can share my enthusiasm and knowledge.
10 reasons for Faktor Zehn
Perhaps you are asking yourself why you should work for us. Here you will find not just one, but ten good reasons why we are different from other employers:
We make you feel welcome
At Faktor Zehn the individual comes first. Our employees’ dreams and ideas are important to us! Each person receives one-to-one professional and personal support. We nurture a family-like environment where each individual is helpful, honest and cooperative. And, of course, we are all on first name terms from interims to board members.
We create the right environment for you
We value good ideas, so our culture promotes both creative solutions and methodical work. By encouraging feedback and honest teamwork we have created an appealing working environment - including table football, free coffee and sweets in the office.
We share knowledge
We have direct communication channels and share our knowledge actively, promoting feedback by having an open door policy. We have events such as Tech-Talks, Project Weeks, Info-Talks and Meetups to support professional networking and exchange of ideas. You can learn from your colleagues’ experience and share your own knowledge.
We drive exciting and challenging projects forwards
What do we mean by exciting projects? We mean working to improve performance for renowned insurance companies with our state-of-the-art technology. No two projects are alike so your ability to critically analyze a situation, your creativity and your good ideas are needed.
We are looking for clever minds. Everyone can contribute their ideas, no matter how unusual they may be. This is the only way our Techie-Community survives. This is the only way we can improve our products and processes and question them critically again and again.
Professional development is our top priority. Expand your horizons with interesting training courses from the ConVista and Faktor Zehn Academy. Every year you can choose from over 120 training courses in the areas of processes, methods and technologies. Would you like to broaden your horizons? Are you interested in external training courses, congresses and trade fairs? No problem, we will support you!
We have a great sense of humour and we laugh a lot
At Faktor Zehn you will be working with people who develop and consult with fun and passion and this creates a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Good mood? Yes, please!
We are not afraid of trying new things
We are always trying out new technology or methods, if we think they will help us achieve our goals. This means we are constantly in a process of self-improvement and learning-by-doing.
We like to spend time together
... even after work, e.g. we share sports activities, game evenings or after-work BBQs.
No two days are the same
Routine? Definitely not! The exciting thing about our projects is that they always bring new challenges and variety every day. We can promise you that things won’t get boring at Faktor Zehn.

Your personal development at Faktor Zehn
Let’s grow together and become better: we will create the foundation for your personal development. No complicated processes and rigid career plans. You will have the freedom to shape your development in line with your own interests. You determine the pace and direction. From technological and methodological basics to specialist knowledge of the insurance industry and soft skills training. You can further develop yourself by attending our internal training courses.
As part of the ConVista family, Faktor Zehn can access the ConVista Academy, which offers more than 120 trainings a year. We also support you to find research projects, participate in trade fairs and meet-ups, or achieve other qualifications.
But it is the learning on the project or in product development team that propels you forward. You can gain valuable experience while working closely with an experienced team of colleagues and tackling challenging tasks. We engage in direct feedback and talk openly, in a stress free environment, about mistakes and successes.
We are also committed to promoting professional knowledge transfer among ourselves. Get inspiration from the person next door in our monthly tech-talks. Do you like to think outside the box and are you interested in new technology? During our project week we give you free time to research and try out new technologies. You then share your results with your colleagues and discuss together whether your idea has future potential or not. Recently, we discuss topics such as "JUnit5 as a test framework", "Is it worth switching from Maven to Gradle?" or "Does Kotlin really make the life of a Java developer easier?”.
The goal of your journey with Faktor Zehn is always clear: build up real expertise in your areas of interest over time, share your knowledge, and grow with the Faktor Zehn community.
