The best reasons to work at adesso

We have so much more to offer

adessi go abroad

With our new program, "adessi go abroad" permanently employed adessi can relocate their working environment to other EU countries for up to two months at a time after their probationary period and explore new horizons in the process. While taking part in the program, you are invited to participate in the various events at the international offices and make new contacts abroad.


In our field of business, it can be challenging to balance family and job in the best possible way for everyone. That's why it's all the more important for us to ensure that our employees are able to combine their professional and private lives.

An adesso cooperation with JobRad enables permanently employed employees to lease their individual dream bike. Through salary conversion and the tax advantage this creates for them, they can thus benefit from an attractive cost advantage. Whether mountain bike, pedelec, city bike or racing bike: the bicycle can be used both for business and private use.

adesso MIND

We know that our employees often work on several projects at the same time, complete different tasks in a short period of time, meet numerous deadlines and communicate in many directions. To enable them to deal successfully with this complexity, we have created adesso MIND.

Software development is a team sport!

Employees receive a monthly contribution to their salary for an active gym or sports club membership. Furthermore, adesso covers the full costs if a group of employees rents a sports hall, a football pitch or a badminton court.

Do you have to iron your shirts yourself? Not at adesso!

One of the many amenities that simplify private everyday life is our cleaning service for shirts and blouses, available to all employees. Without this service, our colleagues would have had to wash and iron more than 65,000 blouses and shirts themselves last year alone.

Taking a break

From little to big plans aside from the daily work routine. Some projects in life are simply not as easy to combine with work: Whether it's a trip around the world, a dissertation or taking extended time for yourself and your family - with our Auszeit programme, we give adessi the necessary break.
