What is it like to work here
Our software engineering teams develop and maintain the heart and soul of our business using a broad stack of tech tools -basically creating everything our platform offers. They code, develop, test and maintain features like user management, authorisation and filters. In addition to designing the frontend and developing software interface for users, Unite techies make sure our platform functions are glitch-free and are patient while supporting the onboarding of new users. They are superheros and in a league of their own at Unite.
Our data engineering and data science teams work passionately on our platform by collating as much valuable information as possible enabling our users and us to derive meaningful insights. Their hands-on approach to identifying identical articles and ranking products helps us track the user journey. While mastering several programming languages is no joke; add a bit of wry humour to it, and voila! You have the quintessential Unite techie.
Our IT infrastructure teams are an essential lifeline to our procurement platform and the internal IT landscape we need to perform everyday magic. So it’s our techie’s job to carry our little world on their shoulders by developing and operating a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure in the client and server functionalities. They have great power and they take the responsibility.
How we work - our IT principles
Tackling a task, IT engineers have the flexibility and freedom to find their own solutions. Grab the data you need (we have plenty) and go for it. Agile working in autonomous teams sets some guidelines and eliminates boundaries for you.
Benefit from exchange
Team up in pair programming sessions, get unstuck and find new twists on a task. Sharing our knowledge and team collaboration matters at Unite thanks to open team structures. Uniting our strengths is the foundation of our team culture.
Profit from feedback
Put your heads together and make your laptops run warm with code reviews. Get the team involved, collect feedback, hurrahs and inspiration. And if something does not work out as you intended, it’s not a problem. Shake it off and try again.
Be in charge
Your job is not finished with the implementation of the code, you know it, "you build it, you run it". Our full-stack engineering teams are structured around the business domains therefore favouring a microservice architecture.

In my team, decisions are made with a wide margin. Great value is attached to sound opinions based on hard facts, and this is something that really sets Unite apart from other employers.
Host - meet - party - repeat
Our 2022 summer party was held at Leipzig after a three-year hiatus. The atmosphere was abuzz with activity as 450-plus employees from around the world joined in, some of whom met each other in person for the first time. "Having this incredible opportunity to celebrate and experience our spirited culture has strengthened my connection with Unite and Unitees," remarked Rachit Gurung from Nepal, one of the many colleagues invited from 26 countries.
SAP meets agile working - Meetup
Agile working in IT development can be tricky, especially while collaborating with software giants like SAP. In a networking event hosted at Leipzig, Germany, we exchanged tips, tricks and trimmings of agile working and dynamic programming.
Hardware for future
Children need a computer for home-schooling. But that's exactly what many Leipzig schoolchildren lack. The "Hardware for Future" association donates PCs to enable digital participation among children. In November 2020, Unitees refurbished and donated 50 computers to this cause.
We are members of JUG Saxony & IT Cluster
As an IT company and sponsor, we have been supporting JUG Saxony for many years with expertise and insights into the everyday IT life of our colleagues. We support the JUG community of Java enthusiasts by hosting events, setting up workshops and encouraging youth to enter the IT branch. We are also part of the IT cluster, a regional network of IT companies.
Women working in IT
The "Women in Big Data" initiative aims to attract female talent to the field of Big Data & Analytics and to develop their careers. To this end, more than 90 female participants from different countries met in Munich to learn about current topics. Agile Coach and Scrum Master Sabina Scharl and Stefan Rothermel, Head of Agile at Unite, spoke about agile working and scrum at Unite and explained how diversity is essential to the culture at Unite.
