The enter­prise

Innova­tive from experi­ence

Our company history begins with the founding of a start-up above a fast-food chain restau­rant in Rosen­heim, Upper Bavaria. That may sound trivial today. Back then, it was a bold move – in a city not exactly known as the hub of the tech world, and at a time long before the term “start-up” became a part of every­day language. Three decades later, our headquar­ters are located in Nußdorf am Inn, and a small team has turned into more than 70 employees. Our sustai­ned success is based on attri­bu­tes which we realise with a passion: Flexi­bi­lity, agility, and flat hierar­chies as drivers of innova­tion.

He firmly belie­ves that an open corpo­rate culture, trust­worthy coope­ra­tion and agile working methods are funda­men­tal to sustainable company success. He finds balance in hiking and skiing in the mountains.

#Formwa­re­People

When not manning the grill for us, Maximi­lian supports our custo­mers in making layouts and helps with the further develop­ment of our chatbot. Max success­fully comple­ted his training as an office manage­ment clerk with us, but found out here that he is really a techni­cian at heart. His new job in the document produc­tion team there­fore suits him all the better: “The work is very interes­ting and the working environ­ment is great. As a career changer, I was immedia­tely and fully entrusted, which pleased me very much.” We are happy to have Max with us, and to have found the right place of work for him.

Matthias is always fully occupied. As head of product manage­ment, he plans the (further) develop­ment of our products, organi­zes the corre­spon­ding scrum teams, and inter­venes if a hitch occurs. He is rarely to be encoun­te­red in his office. He moves around a lot on the premi­ses, and holds discus­sions with colleagues or parti­ci­pa­tes in meetings. He does everything with great precision and focus. No wonder – in his spare time he is an active marks­man.

Simon has a knack for design. With Adobe After Effects, Photo­shop and Illus­tra­tor, he conju­res up videos, posters, infogra­phics and more. He started at Formware in an appren­ti­ce­ship as an office manage­ment clerk. However, he found his home in marke­ting and is there­fore also taking corre­spon­dence courses as a graphic designer. In addition, he loves to film and photo­graph, and very many of the contri­bu­ti­ons on this page are his!

As a project manager, Chris­tina takes care of custo­mers as well as inter­nal projects. For example, she is currently planning a new database system for the Formware compu­ting centre. On both sides, she modera­tes the interests of all those invol­ved, with the aim of recon­ci­ling as many as possi­ble. Chris­tina works part-time and parti­cu­larly appre­cia­tes the high flexi­bi­lity she has. This is because she also has to recon­cile her job with the care of her two-year-old son. “I feel well here, and the work-life balance is right”, she says.

Axel designs layouts of invoices, remin­ders and mailings for our custo­mers. In parti­cu­lar, however, he ensures that the varia­ble fields in his layouts are filled with the correct data. This is not always easy, because the data often comes from huge XML files which need to be prepa­red with scripts and sorted. At times requi­ring special concen­tra­tion here, Axel likes to listen to classi­cal music most of all.

After her training as a media designer, Chris­tina added on a degree in business infor­ma­tics. As a working student with regular employ­ment at Formware now, she develops cool functions and designs for the front-ends of our apps.

“I was assigned a lot of respon­si­bi­lity here from the begin­ning, that was really good,” she says. This was also good for our apps, because the design of the new user inter­faces is really impres­sive!

Just looking for a job as a working student over 20 years ago, Chris­tian is today Formware’s longest-serving develo­per. C++ and C# are his domain, in which he programs our layout software for the Windows environ­ment. He is also a big fan of agile develop­ment methods and an indis­pensable parti­ci­pant in nearly all #SCRUM sprints in the house. What does he like most about Formware? The pleasant working environ­ment and the beauti­ful location in Inntal!
