Working at AdNovum

IT is our core business. This shapes our open and pragmatic culture. We don't take ourselves too seriously; we only care about how successfully our software meets our customers' needs.

Software Engineering With A History


AdNovum started out 25 years ago as a small start-up in a tiny office in Zurich, Switzerland. Today, around 600 employees work in our offices in Zurich, Bern, Lausanne, Budapest, Lisbon, Singapore, and Ho Chi Minh City. We can't really claim to be a start-up company anymore, but we've managed to keep the friendly and cooperative atmosphere that helped make us so successful in the first place.

Our Culture


With more than 70% engineers on the team, we are a tech company through and through. Even top management positions up to our CEO are held by engineers, who know the daily business and understand the passions and troubles of a software engineer. The cornerstones of our culture are openness, learning, direct feedback, and a pragmatic attitude. We don't place much emphasis on conventions or hierarchies. At the end of the day, what matters is that we deliver our software in time and to the full satisfaction of our customers. This means that we don’t care where an idea comes from, only how good it is.

Our Daily Life: The Project

The project is our most important organizational unit. At any given time, we have up to 50 projects running in parallel. Project teams vary in size from 1 to 40 people and can last from one-week-long assignments to long running applications with many releases over several years. Project leaders meet every week to discuss the project assignments, which take into account factors such as project and staff availability.

Find the Role that Suits You


No matter whether you prefer the role of a technical allrounder, an expert in your area, a team leader, or if you just don't know yet. Our project-based culture allows you to try out any role you're curious about and to grow in the direction of your choice. Whatever you choose, an experienced mentor will help you find your way. And we promise that you'll never lose the opportunity to keep your skills fresh with hands-on development.
