Discover your opportunities
When it comes to a professional career, we all have our personal goals. What are yours? It’s time to find out!
Retarus employs people who don’t want to be just another small cog in the machinery of a giant corporation. They want to reach their true potential. Most of them know that a positive working environment with great colleagues is something to be appreciated. And so is the opportunity to gain experience working abroad. There are many reasons to pursue a career with Retarus. Here are the top 10.
#1 We are international
Across the globe, people of various nationalities are working together towards a common Retarus goal. Each with their own personality and history. Our company culture is characterized by both global and local feel—at all our sites worldwide.
#2 We are an innovative IT manufacturer
Retarus is one of the few IT companies that develops, manufactures and sells its own products and services. Innovative thinking is a key component of our day-to-day business. We also run a special idea management process, developed to reward creative thinking in the workplace. As you can see, we value your ideas and want to turn them into reality.
#3 We have great team spirit
At Retarus, we focus on the matter in hand, not on hierarchies. Our teams have the right chemistry. And that’s why we work so well together. To preserve this culture, all our employees have a defined set of shared values and principles that form the foundation of what we do: our corporate culture and values – the Retarus Leitbild. Our exceptional work environment is reflected in how we spend time together, both at the office and outside of work. Film and gaming nights, departmental dinners, company events, and spontaneous discussions in the snack corner are the norm in our company. Even the company founder is happy to join in.
#4 Autonomy and freedom in the workplace
We explicitly want every single one of our employees to take responsibility for their work and take pride in what they do. This entrepreneurial attitude makes it possible for each employee to experience freedom within their daily work, while also motivating employees and preserving the company’s “startup” spirit.
#5 Decision-making is efficient
At big companies, it sometimes takes years for plans to become reality. Not at Retarus. Our company culture is driven by the courage to set a new course and the desire to make decisions—at all levels. And we expect all employees to embody these characteristics too.
#6 We are growing steadily
For companies of all sizes and from all industries, reliable information logistics now plays a key role in their success in the marketplace. Advances in digitization and interconnectedness mean that companies are demanding an ever more efficient flow of information, ensuring long-term stability in the market for logistics companies and secure jobs for their employees. And speaking of secure jobs … Retarus is still family-owned and makes decisions independently of investors.
#7 Our company feels like a startup
Retarus’ path to success started in 1992. Today, our structures are highly professional and the processes are tried and tested. But the spirit of our start-up years remains. If you are looking for a secure job, but still want the dynamic feel of something new, then you’ve come to the right place.
#8 Personal fulfillment and professional advancement
Working for Retarus means more than just working for the future of international information logistics. It means working for your own future. Retarus meets your ambitious commitment and personal potential with outstanding training in specialized areas of expertise, leadership and management training, conferences, soft skills training, language courses, expat programs, internal departmental moves, insightful customer visits and a valuable network of contacts. Retarus doesn’t believe in the “up or out” system found in many other companies. We believe you should set the tempo of your own personal career development.
#9 We offer attractive benefits
Retarus is one of the leading providers in the global market. To be one of the best, we need the best people. When you start your career at Retarus, you’ll receive competitive compensation as well as numerous attractive benefits. These include a generous lunch allowance (at some of our sites, we have our own cafeteria), discounts for gym memberships as well as in-house sports and health courses, free fresh fruit for everyone, a large selection of free beverages, and a snack corner in our Munich HQ that features a kicker table and quite possibly the best cappuccino! In addition, we have a heart for smokers: Retarus doesn’t send you out in bad weather, but provides an indoor smoker on every floor at its Munich office.
#10 Impressive, discerning customers all around the world
Business runs successfully when information flows smoothly between customers and their suppliers. That’s why discerning companies from all industries worldwide rely on the security and performance of Retarus’ services. Our customers include Adidas, Avis, Bayer, Coliposte, DHL, DZ Bank, Honda, Interflora, Osram, Puma, Sixt, Solvay, Sony, Europ Assistance, Photobox and Thomas Cook.
