An Insider's view of Celonis

What’s the vibe like in the office?

On day 1, I met at least 10 new people. Everyone is curious to meet you. Even while visiting different sites, you can be certain to receive dinner invites. This is what I love about working at Celonis - the warm welcome.
The atmosphere is unique and filled with energy. At Celonis We Own It. Every single day. We are Drivers, never just passengers.

Global Culture Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Most challenging for me while programming or conceptualizing features is that you often have several ways of solving a problem. I need to assess which way to take based on different, mostly not even measurable criteria like performance, scalability or version compatibility. In these cases, it helps me a lot to visualize all possibilities.

Svenja

Senior Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was one of the first Business Development Representatives in North America and rose up into the Enablement role after my manager realized a good fit and helped me grow down that path. I’ve learned a lot and have continued growing since joining the team. Something that makes me proud is seeing the reps I train hitting their goals.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

What makes working at Celonis special for me is the dynamic, fast-paced culture filled with ambitious yet pragmatic people. When we face a challenge, we face it as a team and everyone brings their strength to the table. To know that I’ve played even a small role in the growth of the company is pretty awesome.
