XING as an Employer
Benefits at XING? Take your pick!
Flexible working hours/ home office
We find the most suitable working time model for everyone! We always try to accommodate people's needs by offering the opportunity to work from home where possible.
Every employee has 30 days of holiday to use as they wish.
Plus: Coming home for X(ING)mas - On 24 and 31 December the office doors remain locked as they're both official company holidays.
Training and coaching
XING loves developing. We offer a wide range of different options for employees to receive further training and coaching in various fields. XING also provides German, English and Spanish language courses which are held once a week and only cost a small amount each month. The HR department is happy to provide more information about this.
Employee mobile device
XING is mobile thanks to our apps and mobile website, so it makes perfect sense for employees to be mobile, too. Every employee can choose between an iPhone, iPad or Android device that can be used privately as well. XING also pays employees €10 a month as a contribution towards mobile internet costs.
Accident and travel insurance
Employees are covered by our insurance partner when travelling abroad. Employees are also covered by our accident insurance policy which is valid 24 hours a day and doesn't just apply to their typical commute to work and back, as is generally the case.
Public transport & ProfiCard
XING's offices are right in the city centre, so you're never far from a subway station or bus stop, and Dammtor train station is just a short walk away. We provide employees with a discounted public transport subscription (HVV ProfiCard) to help you get around the city.
Hungry? No problem! XING's offices are right in the centre of Hamburg where there are hundreds of restaurants and cafes. We therefore offer employees subsidised restaurant tickets they can use at participating restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, etc.
We have a pension advisor who visits the Hamburg office on a regular basis to advise and offer employees a subsidised company pension.
Plus: It doesn't matter whether you need a free flu vaccination or a G37 eye check-up - our company doctor is there for us!
XING has moved on from being a start-up, but we do our very best to retain the start-up culture. We therefore have a summer and Christmas party every year, and also celebrate major product launches, too. Regular team events are also subsidised each quarter.
Looking to keep yourself fit. We have various sports groups and discount for various gyms (Kaifu Lodge, Fitness First, Body Focus, Zanshin Dojo) - just let them know you're a XING employee when you sign up.
We cooperate with Deutsche Bank, G-Star outlet, BMW Hamburg, Car2Go and Secret Garden Hamburg to provide employee discounts.
Employees refer employees
We're always on the lookout for great new employees. If a XING employee refers someone who ends up getting a permanent job with us, we'll pay the employee a "bonus" for helping us. The HR department can provide more information about this.
Taking time out from work? After 3 years as a permanent employee with XING, employees can take unpaid leave under certain conditions.
Hardware / Internet use
What would XING be without the Internet? It wouldn't even exist! XING is more than happy for you to use the Internet for both professional and private use. A lot of teams offer you the choice between a Mac and a PC. You can also use XING hardware privately at home!
Individual and family consulting
Besides typical personnel development opportunities, we also offer a partnership with the Fürstenberg Institut which helps us when supporting our employees with individual issues. There, consultants offer assistance on a wide variety of subjects: career coaching, handling stressful situations, dealing with complicated personal issues or highly psychologically taxing problems, consulting the management in terms of leadership challenges, and much more. Further information is provided on the Fürstenberg Institut website.”
