Have fun: We are a group of very ambitious, and equally down-to-earth people. Teamwork and celebrating success is key to us. We get together for regular team events - on- and offline, to stay connected.

Be who you are: It’s not about gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation, colour, disability, or place of origin. We live diversity and cherish our multinational team. At expertlead we consider ourselves as equals and create a space everybody feels comfortable and happy to work in.

Become a part of constant growth: While following our mission to revolutionize the tech recruiting industry, we are proud to be recognized as a Growth Champion in 2023 (being one of 500 of the fastest-growing companies in Germany) as well as a Top Start-Up Employer in 2022 and Employer of the Future 2023. Those three awards are only one sign of our dedication and passion to become better every single day, for our clients and our employees.  

We live and breath our values: Our values #aimhigher, #teamup, #trustme and #beyourself represent how we define our DNA at Expertlead. We’re striving towards using them as a basis to our every day work and are excited to welcome everyone who’s sharing our values. 

And yes, we have the obligatory foosball table, a Playstation and a fridge that is always full — at least until Friday afternoon ;).

P.S.: Our communication style is pretty much based on memes - so feel free to bring in your repertoire ;).
