We're hungry to learn. As well as our internal Zenjob university platform, which enables us to exchange skills and expertise with one and other, we also encourage ongoing development opportunities such as our internal mentoring programme and external training. Additionally, we offer the opportunity to improve your language skills with in-house German and English lessons.


  • Dog friendly office

  •  Keeping active

We believe moving is important. We encourage you to take a walk rather than rely on Slack and emails, get active with table tennis and for something to really get the blood pumping, we offer discounted Gym membership for FitX below us at our Berlin Headquarters.



  • Keeping fueled 

It's not only important what you do with your body, but what you put into it. Twice a week fresh fruit is delivered to the office and every Friday we also have our yummy company lunch. That said, the customary birthday cake or treats brought back from holiday are definitely hard to say no to.

  • Onboarding

    We believe that a proper onboarding is key to a great and productive start into your new role. In your first few days at Zenjob, you'll get to know your fellow new joiners, meet your team for lunch and discover insights from every department. You will also find out about our culture, our history and what we have planned for the future!

At Zenjob, we want everyone to feel valued and comfortable to bring their true self to work every day. The collective team spirit is an important part of who we are, in fact, it’s one of the main things that people say they love about working at Zenjob. We see ourselves as being supportive, dependable, imaginative and ambitious. We enjoy working on interesting and challenging projects with autonomy, knowing that our work has a direct impact on our fast-growing and innovative startup.
