How we work
We’re a team of 150 minds full of great ideas. Most of all, we’re doers who make these ideas a reality as well. We plan. We tinker. We engineer. Things have gone wrong for us at times and we’ve learned from that. This not only gives us our knowledge advantage, but is also the secret to our infectious positivity and our great vibes.
We check manure and juggle numbers. We weld and fine-tune. We know and ask questions. We understand clients and learn something new every day. We play Playstation and kick the ball out on the field. We’re IT nerds and engineers. We plan and execute. We drive. We cycle. Yes, some of us are known to ride horses. We chat like old friends. We concentrate quietly. We drink coffee. We drink tea. We party. We like beer as well as soft drink, and even drinkers of the latter are known to be dance floor friends.
WhatsVibe – Corporate benefits
So that’s why the vibes are so good …
Hi Marina. I’m thinking about applying for a job at bioconstruct.
Hi, that’s great to hear!
I’m on your website reading what
you’ve written about Attitude & Values.
It sounds good!
It doesn’t just sound good – we really do practise these things!
Tell me more!
OK, I’d be happy to.
For example, #trust means trust-based working hours for everyone (no clocking in), flexible working hours and work-from-home options.
#transparency, for example, might mean participating in the company’s success
e.g. a variable salary based on it, if desired.
#equals in communication – and in height, with our height-adjustable desks 😉
You’ll even see this in our regular feedback talks.
#knowledge is something we like sharing and also supporting
with individual professional development options.
#openness is in our open communication culture, for instance. You’re allowed – and asked – to be honest and say what you think!
If I’m being honest, that sounds amazing!
And that’s not even the half of it.
What else is there?
For some roles there’s also a company car (including EVs), a company phone and individual benefits (just ask, #openness), an employer-funded company pension plan and tax-free fringe benefits like monthly vouchers for green power from Naturstrom.
Ooh! How does that work exactly?
You become a customer of Naturstrom. bioconstruct arranges that by signing you up with Naturstrom on its employer portal after your probation ends, then they’ll take €44 off your monthly power bill. You’ll not only save lots of money, but also do your part for the energy revolution!
Speaking of great,
all our staff will be able to charge their EVs with green power here in the future.
Nice! I usually ride a bike though.
Perfect – then you’ll like our BioCycle app.
Or our free bikes.
Really?! What bikes do you have?
You can pick one yourself: e-bikes, mountain bikes, cargo bikes or any other type of bike.
Fantastic! How would I do that?
You’ll just have to get a quote from a bike shop that’s partnered with JobRad. The quote will get uploaded, I’ll get a notification and I’ll be able to approve the JobRad bike for you.
That’s awesome. Like everyone says, cycling is good for your #health
That’s right! And with us, it’s good for your wallet too, since the more you cycle the more we’ll pay into your JobRad financing plan. So, if you’re a dedicated cyclist like our team member Albert, you could get your JobRad bike for free!
Apart from that, we also support healthy food. For example, bioconstruct has a partnership with a ‘Solawi’ farm (a type of co-op).
What does that mean?
In this case, coupons for organic food.
You can head to the Solawi-Hof every Friday and pack a crate full of organic products like fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs, flour and bread – all seasonal.
Have a look:
And don’t forget, we have #fun here.
When we lunch together, bring our dogs to work.
When we play table football, Playstation and more.
And, of course, when we celebrate together (summer parties, Christmas parties, BBQs, there’s always something)
#fun #fun #fun
So that’s why the vibes are so good!
That explains the #teamspirit
I’ve just sent you my application!
Good on you!
I think our attitude and values are a good match.
We’re looking forward to meeting you!
What exactly does the green team do?
