Working for subshell

The subshell office is located right in the center of Hamburg's HafenCity and benefits from easy access to public transportation; buses and trains stop virtually on our doorstep. Anyone who works on-site at the subshell office will find individual, light-flooded workspaces. We attach great importance to a personal and comfortable working environment. Therefore, we do not have open-floor-plan offices. All employees are fully equipped with the latest technology, have ergonomic office furniture, and work with the operating system of their choice. The office kitchen offers complementary juice, fair trade coffee and fresh organic fruit. During breaks, our employees can relax by playing foosball, darts, and/or table tennis or by taking a walk through the dynamic and ever-changing HafenCity.
subshell employees appreciate the interesting tasks and team-oriented working style at our company. This also includes our implementation of joint, agile software development. Every day, all employees help decide which tasks to perform - and which not to perform. The teams thus organize themselves and work with their own budgets. In this way, subshell creates the basis for a flexible work style. We also offer room for creative projects. The teams dedicate a substantial part of their daily product development to trying out new techniques. In addition, for each sprint, there is a "Lab Day" every two weeks, during which everyone is free to experiment. Our regular hack-a-thons are also very popular among our staff.
subshell also invests in the talents and skills of its employees in the long term. This means that regular working hours are a matter of course for us. After all, our private lives are important to all of us! With participation in the company pension plans and flexible part-time models, subshell supports all employees in coping with daily tasks as well as in securing their future.
It is important to subshell that its employees also feel comfortable in while working from home. Here, too, we support our teams by providing optimal equipment and flexible, direct communication channels. Of course, the subshell team spirit remains alive even as many of us work from home. We train together with our online sports coach, regularly arrange digital games and competitions, take part in team events and Friday afternoon coffee and cake. The little surprises that subshell sends directly to our employees’ home offices are also very popular - from vouchers for organic fruit to corona masks.
