About

About

Software for process- and industrial automation? What does that mean? It´s quite simple: There are different process industry sites. All these need measurement devices to monitor and operate their processes. That can be: devices to measure fluid level in a tank, rate of flow in a pipe, temperature of materials in use and more. To do so the measurement devices are equipped with software. Some device manufacturers develop this software inhouse- for others this is what we do.

Vision

CodeWrights as employer

Our polar star is our vision we align our daily work to. Our vision: In a networked world of things CodeWrights connects technologies and links data to information - for the human. Our seminal software solutions represent us: open, clever and reliable.

Distributed leadership instead of executives. Since we don't have managers in the classic sense, we won't put anyone in front of you to tell you how to do your job. Nevertheless, we are not without hierarchies. The difference to classic organizational charts is, however, essential, because the hierarchy is distributed across the company and is based on professional competencies. So instead of just one manager, you will find many different role owners who make decisions in certain areas. In addition, we all have an internal mentor who accompanies us individually.

For You

Our employees enjoy working here - that's our target. This is possible if some aspects fit together. How we achieve this? With our "For You" program.

For you! What does it mean?

It means we want to create a comfortable daily work atmosphere. Doing this we provide beverages, fruit and cereals. Okay, some portions of sugar are covered too. For lunch there are different options close-by such as a cantine and offerings at the main station. Being located there is quite convenient for commuting by public transport. Flexible work time and options for home office support you in organizing your work time.

If you are interested in socializing with colleagues you are welcome to do so participating at events (company year kick-off, summer party). You are a sportive person? Be part of our CodeWrights running team and run for us at run events wearing the provided shirt.

Sounds good? Perfect!

Laura

Software Engineer

I came to CodeWrights in May 2021. I was attracted to the presentation of employers through my internet research on various platforms.
After completing my dual studies in mechatronics, I joined a company as a development engineer. In addition to my daily work, I also did my master’s degree in mechatronics.
In 2020 I decided to take a big step. I am passionate about the front-end area and have trained full-time.

The start was great despite the pandemic. The onboarding process was partly carried out virtually and partly on site.
I can ask questions at any time and I was well integrated into the team. I am very happy with the way we work together in the squad. It can go on like this!

My thirst for knowledge also drives me again and again to learn new things and to think outside the box.
I particularly like that we use the Google OKR method and that I can even work on and contribute to HR tasks / HR projects.

Markus

Software Engineer

2005 I came to CodeWrights through a job advertisement in the Bonding fair catalogue. The field sounded very interesting to me, because I specialised on “Embedded Systems and Telematics” during my studies. In practice it is not priority of my every day work, but I enjoy developing products and continue to learn new things.

During the past years, I worked in different positions in the company. For example, as developer or project manager. At work I especially enjoy the opportunity to work at diverse projects. At CodeWrights I like the working atmosphere, the social interactions with colleagues and the proximity to the main station of Karlsruhe.

Sandra

HR

I came to CodeWrights in 2016 from a concern. I expected certain things from my move to a smaller company. I wanted to take on more responsibility, work more independently and get involved in such a way that I, as a partner, drive the success of the company together with our business. For me, HR work still means getting to know every employee as a person, facing them on an equal footing and being open to the concerns of our employees at all times. My area of responsibility is very diverse and also lies outside the "classic" HR topics - I enjoy that. The mix of corporate diversity of our shareholders and a small, agile company makes it for me. Because I have a family at home with a son , In addition to the work-related issues, the issue of work-life balance was also very important.With our flexible hybrid model, I can also fulfill my role as mother and wife and also do justice to my horse.

Alexander

Student

I've been with CodeWrights since 2018. I got to know CodeWrights 2018 at a career fair. At that time I started as a software tester (student). My colleagues made it a lot easier for me to get started with their support. I particularly like the flexible organization of my working hours. This way I can combine work and study perfectly. Breaks for my compulsory internship or my bachelor thesis were no problem at all. But there are also many ways to do this with CodeWrights. After my thesis, I switched to software development as a student. I particularly like working on real customer projects here. Working with colleagues is very pleasant. I can learn a lot, bring my own ideas to projects and always get support with problems or questions.

Andreas E.

Software Engineer

2010 I came within my studies through an internship to CodeWrights. Until today I still enjoy to develop new products by using latest technologies and expand my learning.

Added to the work advantages there are many more benefits. It begins with a shower room, because of which I can combine my work way with a sporting activity, and it ends at great events for the entire company.

Annelie

After Sales & Customer Care

I started at CodeWrights in 2010 as a working student for software tests. After my master's degree (musicology), I started as a Scrum Master in 2016. It is very important to me to further develop the agile way of working and to try out new methodologies and ways of thinking.
Due to my strengths, I work in my current role as After Sales and Customer Care Manager. I particularly like the fact that we actively integrate customer feedback into our work and thus contribute to improvement. What I particularly appreciate about CodeWrights is the collegial collaboration in a family environment and the opportunity to try everything.

Josè

Software Engineer

I’m from Colombia and got, during my study of computer sciences, a scholarship in Poland. From Poland my journey led me to Germany, where I came to CodeWrights in 2003. As a software developer the special field was new for me, but I was and am fascinated by the various technologies in a production plant. I value that CodeWrights is a dynamic and future orientated company. A highlight at working by CodeWrights is the team work and working atmosphere. Humour and to treat each other with respect is important to us.

Andreas W.

Software Engineer

2003 I started at CodeWrights with the emphasis on compiler construction and development. My emphasis changed quickly to the development of new solutions, which has positively influenced my role today. In the meanwhile I coordinate for CodeWrights projects which also go across the company boarders and work on new industry standards like IIoT and industry 4.0. CodeWrights is special by the fact: “It is all in the mix”.

Especially important for me, the large range between deepest technologies up to standardizations, as well as the cooperation and interaction with the colleagues. The art is to develop modern solutions for a conservative industry in the rushing time of the internet.

Ivan

Student

I`ve been a working student in the laboratory since 2019 and test the software. As testers at CodeWrights, we have tools that enable us to simplify the task and communication with the developer. In our team, the colleagues are always helpful and that makes the atmosphere at work particularly great. I also appreciate the fact that I acquire general IT skills and tricks through my work that can help me later after my studies.

Your options in our team

Self-organisation
When you get to know us, you will notice that we are different! Everything that is often demotivating in a classic organization, you will not have with us. Because we like to develop further here and would rather solve problems instead of discussing them for unnecessarily long. "We always do it like this" you don't hear us. We live in constant change in order to get better. Since we don't have superiors in the traditional sense, this also means that everyone is responsible for driving projects forward and changing processes, systems and structures. If you are dissatisfied with something, bring it up and think about how it can be improved and what role is responsible for it. This includes a portion of personal responsibility and courage. But we will help you.

The squad decides: our hiring process
Since we don't have superiors in the classic sense, not a single person decides who we hire. Don't worry, we're not talking about a ten-person committee that asks you nasty questions, but rather about mutual get-togethers. We want to find out together whether you are a professional and cultural fit for us and whether you have the appropriate soft skills.

The first meeting is with Sandra from HR (via Teams)
The second meeting is with the colleagues from the squad (via teams)
The third meeting is a tour of our office with a final conversation

But you will notice how quickly we get to know each other.
