XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future – for a better working life! We currently have an opening at our headquarters in Hamburg. 

With our core “premium network” we developed a product that is so valuable to our customers that they are willing to pay for it! We build mobile and web based products which enable our users to connect and communicate with each other, while we also provide the interaction between our platform and our user wallet. We constantly challenge our existing business models and work on new innovative products. Our unit currently consists of nearly 70 people in 5 agile development teams, and we’re not done growing yet.
