Flexibility, the freedom to innovate, a state-of-the-art technological environment, and cross-functional teamwork – these are just some of the many good reasons for working at LINK Mobility GmbH.
“I still remember my get-to-know day: I thought that everything sounded suspiciously good, to good to be true. You’re working within teams with own responsibilities, the team decides how to proceed with projects, no complex hierarchy slowing down things. I couldn’t imagine that this is really possible so I decided to give it a try. I’m more than happy about this decision.”
Laura, PR Manager at LINK Mobility Germany
“As a Software Developer I have always enjoyed self-organized working so that I can choose my own tools and methods based on my expertise and experience to achieve goals or leverage problems. This was promised and kept for the DevOps role at LM Germany. Additionally, I found a flat hierarchy with short decision paths that was different comparing to previous experience with big traditional organizations. What motivates me even more is that I also learned to contribute to organizational topics or other non technical topics and thus my ideas have an impact on the whole company.”
Alexander, DevOps at LINK Mobility Germany
“Before my journey started here, I didn’t have any deeper technical understanding, but the environment and the agile concept of work convinced me from the first moment on. Working at LINK means both, to have the chance to grow personally and to gain insights about a fascinating industry.”
Bastian, Sales Manager at LINK Mobility Germany

What is Agility?
In 2014, we reinvented ourselves: We wanted to go another way, away from classical structures towards a more efficient and learning organization. We wanted agility. However, not only for some chosen projects, we wanted to be an agile organization. Instead of departments, we now have teams that depend on a project and the competences required for it. Teams, that decide independently how to tackle and implement things.
Everything is changing – and always faster. We wanted to adapt to this change, but this was not possible with our then existing structures. So we have completely changed, you can call it a change for change. It took some time, but it was worth it: the agility has arrived and is lived by every one of our colleagues in Hamburg. We’re more productive, more efficient – and in case we’re on the wrong path, we find our way back faster.
“Agility is completely different to what I experienced before. At LINK in Hamburg, you’re working within teams with own responsibilities and you decide within this team, how you proceed with your projects – there is no complex hierarchy slowing down things. It’s the perfect combination.”
