we are hiring - open positions @ PDF Tools AG - we love PDF

The microcosm of PDF Tools AG

Our team, which develops PDF and PDF/A components and solutions for developers, is a complementary blend of personalities that bring out the best of each other. We all work on an equal basis and rely on each other for support and encouragement.

Our flat organizational structure guarantees short and efficient information and decision-making channels. All employees have the opportunity to contribute and help define the processes. Due to the company size, each member of staff is treated as an individual and supported as such. A healthy work-life balance and a strong team spirit is also important: in addition to regular staff events, our employees often get together outside work for lunch, sports or movie nights.

We all share the same passion for developing high-quality products that benefit our customers and business partners – in a pleasant working environment based on honesty and fairness and in which everyone can count on each other.

The perfect fit – Wanted!

Successful together – our unique team consists of innovative minds who live and breathe software development. We are looking for new team members whose personality and skills are a perfect fit for our corporate culture.
