Working @ Frequentis Comsoft
Are you ready for take-off?
Frequentis Comsoft is one of the foremost solution providers in the air navigation industry and has long been the undisputed world market leader in aeronautical message handling. As a mid-sized IT company based in Karlsruhe, we develop tailored solutions for Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) worldwide. Our systems are used in control centres and airports in more than 80 countries, making an important contribution to international aviation safety.
We are part of the Frequentis Group, a highly successful global player in the field of safety-critical information and communication systems, headquartered in Vienna and with numerous offices worldwide. The mission statement of the group is "For A Safer World", because Frequentis systems and solutions help make the world safer.
The day-to-day management of safety-critical systems requires a deep understanding of each customer’s needs and a strong sense of identification with their challenges. For example, rapid growth in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles such as drones is today a major concern for ANSPs worldwide. As part of our team, you will have the opportunity to actively shape the future of airspace surveillance in this and other areas.
At Frequentis Comsoft, our focus is on our people. We strive to ensure that our employees look forward to coming to work and go home happy at the end of each day. To create a pleasant and productive shared working environment, we value honesty, transparency and mutual respect above all. In this environment, our employees can take on and master new challenges, accelerating their personal development and helping the company to constantly evolve.
Who we are looking for
At Frequentis Comsoft, we are convinced that people deliver their best results when working in a company that suits them. Our employees all want to make a difference and to take responsibility for their work. We also firmly believe that as a company, we are stronger when people from diverse backgrounds actively contribute to the business. In addition to professional qualifications, we rely on good ideas, commitment and personal responsibility. We are always seeking bright minds, experts and lateral thinkers of every type, all of whom share an enthusiasm for making global air traffic even safer.
Our employees hail from more than 20 countries, and we see each new nationality and foreign language as enriching our corporate culture. Around 70% of our employees are highly qualified engineers and industry specialists, typically working in roles such as: Software Developers, System Instructors, Project Managers, and Product Managers. We also offer professional positions in several key corporate divisions.
As a company that works in safety-critical environments, we rely on a blend of both young, highly trained employees and seasoned industry experts. This means that we offer internships for students as well as expert and management careers in a truly international environment.
How we work
Our employees value the positive working atmosphere at Frequentis Comsoft. Understanding that we achieve more by working together in teams, we value mutual appreciation, the open exchange of ideas and the enjoyment of shared success. Indeed, the first thing that attracts many newcomers to Frequentis Comsoft is the sense that everyone interacts at the same level regardless of seniority.
We are convinced that personal development and success result when employees are freed from constraints. This means free agency for taking responsibility and decisions, as well as flexibility through family-friendly part-time contracts and opportunities for remote working. To support this, we provide the latest IT equipment for use from any location, at home or on the road.
Worldwide projects often take our employees to distant countries. But even in Karlsruhe, the work we do depends on international cooperation. Working at Frequentis Comsoft is therefore an opportunity to broaden your horizons and to develop valuable intercultural experience. In addition to our offices in Karlsruhe and the Frequentis Group headquarters in Vienna, successful applications will have opportunities to work worldwide in more than 20 other office locations, in countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Brazil and Australia.
What we offer
We offer attractive employee packages, where financial rewards are just as important as other benefits, including a 30-day annual leave allowance, sports and health programs, and JobRad bicycle leasing. The work-life balance of our employees is particularly important to us. We believe that private and family needs should be fully compatible with the daily work routine and that our employees should feel able to meet personal commitments even during standard working hours. This is another reason why flexitime and virtual working models come as standard at Frequentis Comsoft. In addition, our spacious and quiet offices, in which a maximum of four colleagues sit together, provide a calm and productive working environment.
We are also guided by the principle of “healthy mind in a healthy body”. Our staff can train before or after work in our in-house gym or participate in sports courses. In addition, we regularly participate in various sports activities to promote team spirit and celebrate shared successes. A range of annual parties and events – for example, on our beautiful roof terrace – strengthen our sense of corporate community.
