XING works towards “a better working life”. One key element of this mission is XING's job marketplace (xing.com/jobs) that helps our users in exploring their next career steps. We are a team of Business Analysts, Designers, Software Engineers and Data Scientists - try to turn this marketplace into a data-driven product that supports our more than 12 Million DACH users in finding relevant jobs (e.g. via search or recommendations). Therefore, we work with the latest technologies in a highly international environment and bring state-of-the-art research into production. If you want to get things done rather than sit in meetings, like helping others and learning from them, you will have fun in our team!
