About us
We cover the digital shift of our clients. Since we believe that a solid business strategy can only thrive when all aspects of the digital world are considered, we need hands-on experts for all digital disciplines to achieve this. Our services entail digital analytics, strategic planning, project management, UX/design, development, marketing and the education of our client’s employees.

We have offices in Karlsruhe, Cologne and Barcelona and alongside netzstrategen more companies belong to our family to complete our clients’ digital workbench and of our own products and businesses.
Our clients are from many different industries and sizes; we are working for big health corporations as well as small local retailers. We are independent from our clients and other institutions - so we don’t have to answer to nobody but to ourselves. This allows us to work with an open and honest attitude when it comes to suggestions for strategies and implementations. Our clients appreciate this a lot.
Honesty and sincerity are enormously important to us und we live our values in our daily work. We all like coming to our offices, to see our clients and our colleagues. Our community is important to us and we invest time and energy in nurturing it. Work to us is more than just bashing stones for a dime :-)
We try to make decisions together in the company; in our weekly lunch meetings, in our frequent plannings or in our bi-annual cross company workshop, where we all come together physically or virtually to spend some time together and try to keep the companies on the right path.
Our compensation model is one of the results of these discussions. It defines perks, benefits and extras and helps to define an entry salary as well as the minimum growth - so nobody is forced to press this topic. So far our experience with this model is very positive.
Sounds like your thing? Then we look forward to hearing from you!
