We can philosophize about ourselves as much as we like. Why not just let the team have their say? That’s what this page is for.
“I’m glad that consultants don’t have to get on a plane on Monday morning at our company.”
Lena, Senior Consultant and Project manager
For me, the most important thing is a good relationship with the team and supervisors. I’m lucky to work with such nice and helpful colleagues. I also think it’s great that we have such short decision-making paths thanks to the flat hierarchies and don’t have “pass 38a” processes like you see in Asterix and Obelix.
Together with the rest of our ERP team at the respective locations, I help our clientele to implement the ERP system Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision) and use it optimally. Since our company has deliberately decided against a specific industry solution and instead opted for regional, customer-oriented support, my activities are particularly varied. For example, I support customers from the food industry, the electronics sector as well as from the service sector.
In the projects, I take on consulting, programming of individual adaptations and support for a wide variety of ERP areas such as production, logistics, marketing and purchasing.
What is also important to me: In the ERP area, we mainly serve companies within a one to three hour drive from where we work. I visit my contacts regularly, if the situation allows, for training or other appointments on site, and I also work in my home office from time to time. Most of the time, however, I’m at my office desk and I’m glad that we don’t have consultants who have to get on a plane or train on Monday morning and don’t come home until the weekend.
I particularly enjoy business process analysis and optimization in upgrade or implementation projects, but also the implementation and close contact with users through training and support.
Project management always presents me with new challenges, so it never gets boring in my job.
Before starting my career, I studied business informatics at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences. But this is absolutely not a must! In addition to computer science and business informatics graduates from the university and various other universities, we also have IT specialists in our team who have completed an apprenticeship and therefore do not have a degree.
At anaptis, less emphasis is placed on skills and knowledge being documented in black and white. The focus is on people, not degrees, so that a wide range of experiences, talents and characters are represented. You’ll be given a chance even if you’ve taught yourself programming skills, for example.
“For me, will is more important than ability. It’s much more important to have fun.”
Daniel N., Senior Consultant and Project manager
At the end of 2005, I moved directly from my training company to anaptis. There, alongside the founders, I was virtually the first employee since the company was founded. At that time, I was attracted by the ERP solution, which was still called Navision at the time. Before that, I had only heard about it, but never really had the chance to work with it.
I also liked (and still like to this day) the variety. I mean that both in terms of my field of work (programming and consulting), and in terms of where I work. After all, I sometimes work in the office for a few days, and sometimes on-site at the company – alone or with my team. All in all, it’s a healthy mix.
In addition, there is the professional variety. Since our regular customers are not “stuck in a particular industry,” we have a wide range of customer requirements in a wide variety of business areas. In addition, the relaxed and collegial tone of the entire team contributes to our sense of well-being.
Together with the rest of our ERP team at the Würzburg and Münster locations, I help our clientele to implement the Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP system (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision) and use it optimally. Since our company has deliberately decided against a specific industry solution and instead opted for regional, customer-oriented support, my activities are particularly varied. For example, I support customers from the food industry, the electronics sector as well as from the service sector.
In the projects, I take over the consulting, the programming of individual adaptations and the support for the most diverse ERP areas such as production, logistics, marketing and purchasing.
I particularly enjoy the business process analysis and optimization in upgrade or implementation projects, but also the implementation and the close contact with users through training and support.
In my opinion, developers must have a high degree of independence, abstraction skills, accuracy and a process-oriented view. To do this, they must know the basic application well and always force themselves to look at and examine the process in its overall context when making adjustments. Despite a lot of brainwork, I would consider programming in Dynamics NAV or Dynamics 365 Business Central more as a craft and less as a science. The practical relevance is clearly in the foreground. Whereby the tendency can be seen that more and more specialized professionals are in demand.
Regarding prior knowledge, I would say: programming knowledge helps – but is not mandatory. For me, “want” clearly takes precedence over “ability”. It is much more important to have fun with it. After all, programming makes up a large part of the work. That is much more important than the degree. Just like me, some of my colleagues have now dropped out of their studies and have reoriented themselves, for example, in the area of application development as part of the dual training program. In the end, they have developed into real programming and consulting talents.
“I like the mix of development and consulting services.”
I first did a short internship as a lateral hire (Infosim GmbH & Co. KG at the time). That was such a hit for me that I went straight into a full-time job.
Why? The friendly colleagues and the varied work made this step easy for me. On top of that, the mix of consulting and development hit the mark for me.
I can positively emphasize the initial training: On the one hand, I was able to actively watch and on the other hand, I was able to learn through self-study or my own training with resources provided. Thus, I quickly became fit in Dynamics 365 Business Central and the associated programming languages and I was able to quickly implement requirements independently.
In my job as a consultant, I do both consulting and development. What I find really great is the mixture of both worlds. On the one hand, I’m in personal contact with our customers, which is a lot of fun. And on the other hand, I develop in concentrated individual work. I can count on helpful colleagues at all times. So I have a colorful bouquet of challenges every day: Logical and technical ones in programming as well as procedural and communicative ones in consulting.
The team cohesion here is top-notch. At my location in Würzburg, the interaction with each other is very cordial.
In addition, I find the size of the company with communication at eye level very pleasant from a purely organizational point of view. Everyone is allowed to contribute ideas and is listened to.
“The whole package fits for me. I feel very comfortable.”
Sina, Senior Developer
I was actively looking for a new employer at the time and had a real interview marathon. I noticed anaptis right away because of its modern website. The interview with Markus Thyen was by far the most pleasant in my memory. The communication was very honest and appreciative, but at the same time totally relaxed. I had the feeling that I could say everything that was important to me. So in the sense of “what I want from my employer”.
The second interview was also great. I then asked for an “on-site” appointment in Würzburg to meet my (hopefully) colleagues. At least for a first impression. And even after that, my gut feeling was so good! When the acceptance came, I was incredibly happy.
What I value most are my colleagues at work. We work very well together productively as a team. But at the same time, we also have a lot of fun in between.
What I find particularly appealing about my job is the freedom to come up with innovative solutions. Technologies are always evolving, so it’s very varied and I often have to get creative to find a solution. I also have to keep up to date with any new developments in my specialist area of DevOps so that I don’t miss out on important news. Here, I particularly like the fact that I have the time at anaptis to do just that.
I also find the use of FOSS (Free Open Source Software) and Infrastructure as a Service very cool.
I like my job very much. Of course, there are also days when I would like to turn off the computer right away. But where is that not the case? The overall package is right for me. I feel very comfortable in my team and at the Würzburg location in general.
The management style of my team leader Lena is perfect for me. She is very competent in both human and technical terms. And when the human element fits, the job is even more fun.
“The tasks are very diverse and the team is unique.”
René, Consultant (former trainee)
During the interview and trial work, I quickly gained the impression that my wishes and ideas were taken into account. In addition, the collegial atmosphere immediately struck me as positive. Because I was immediately warmly received and my many questions were gladly answered.
My day-to-day work is quite varied, as I am assigned different tasks. Sometimes I implement customizations for our customers and sometimes I work independently on my own smaller projects. In the same way, I actively communicate with our customers to solve various support cases. So I never know in the morning exactly what to expect on my workday. So the work is quite varied.
My tasks were also very different during my training. I can’t even begin to list the projects that I worked on or that I managed on my own. The one I remember most is a solution for mobile devices that makes our Microsoft Dynamics NAV product clearly displayed on mobile devices and easy to use. This is because I worked on this project off and on for months and was able to implement my own ideas. Through this project I came into contact with many programming languages.
I really like working here. I like the relationship with my colleagues best. In addition, the flat hierarchy means that even experienced team members are always open to suggestions and ideas, which gives you a good feeling. What’s more, everyone is up for a joke, which really lightens up the overall atmosphere in the office.
“To this day, I am very happy about my job at anaptis.”
Fabian, Developer (former trainee)
At the time, I was looking for a training company and came across anaptis. Even the interview was very cordial. I felt like I was in good hands right away. I also remember the prompt further communication, including an invitation to a trial period.
To this day, I’m very happy with my job at anaptis. The salary is absolutely fair. And the flexibility is very very valuable! I can decide for myself whether I work at one of the on-site locations or from my home office. After consulting with my team, I can arrange my working hours to fit my work rhythm. Outside of work, I occasionally do something with my colleagues in my free time.
A part of my job involves consulting with clients. However, the majority of my responsibilities revolve around developing customizations for existing and new clients, as well as handling support for existing clients (modifications to existing code). This focus emerged because I expressed my interest in it during my transition discussion, and my interests and needs were taken into account.
Occasionally, I also assist with workshops. The latter is entirely self-initiated, as it’s not an expectation or requirement for developers.
In summary, my training was really great. I was warmly welcomed from day one and was immediately part of the team. I was introduced to new topics very well (that still applies today). In the end, I was very pleased to be offered a job.
I’m well integrated into the company and have truly great colleagues. We treat each other fairly and with mutual respect, fostering a strong sense of camaraderie. This is largely thanks to the flat hierarchies in place.
I know my field of activity very well. I like the tasks – even if, of course, as in any job, there are diligence tasks that are not my favorite. Of course, there are more stressful and less stressful times. Overall, the working atmosphere is relaxed, as people help each other even in more stressful phases. I really appreciate the fact that you are introduced to different areas of responsibility here by helping your colleagues with their tasks. In this way, you not only acquire personal knowledge, but at the same time help to strengthen team spirit and help customers. Another thing that’s worth mentioning is that I’m given support in the form of training whenever I need it.
What I also like: my work-life balance. My job has allowed me to do my voluntary work in parallel since the beginning. So: I’m very happy.
“There are no lone wolves at our company.”
Sven, DevOps Engineer (former trainee)
Before I came across anaptis, I worked as a student trainee in the software development department of a large company that offers management consulting.
For my training, however, I deliberately preferred a smaller company where I could quickly take on responsibility and be my own boss. I found that at anaptis. The flat hierarchies and short decision-making processes simply won me over. anaptis also gave me the opportunity to work there and get to know the team before the official start of my training, which made it easier for me to get started. I then started my training in August 2018.
I have various tasks in the DevOps area. As a result, it never gets boring. When performing my tasks, I work closely with the team. However, there are also challenges for which I first have to deal with the topic independently. The ratio between team and individual work is just right for me personally. In addition, I am always in active exchange with the teams that write the software for our customers, so that I can react quickly to new or changed requirements. Not to be overlooked is also the mandatory exchange with our employees in the area of system integration, who ensure the smooth operation of the hardware on which all our systems run.
My responsibilities include the following:
I think it’s very important that you have a desire for teamwork. There are no lone wolves in our company.
In general, it might also be important to know that making mistakes is allowed. It’s not always avoidable. Das ist nicht immer vermeidbar. But when they happen, you need to admit to them and also tell others that mistakes have happened. Then we can work together to find a solution. After all, knowledge is meant to be shared. Another point is beeing open to new things. You should be aware that the IT sector is constantly evolving. Be prepared to continue developing yourself and never cease to learn.
In August 2018, I joined anaptis as an apprentice, as described earlier. During my training as an IT specialist for application development, I had the opportunity to contribute to various areas and projects. After completing my apprenticeship – in August 2020 – I was taken on as a developer for Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV.
Due to technological advancements and the trend towards the cloud, the DevOps field gained increasing significance at anaptis. At that time, there was only foundational knowledge internally in this rapidly evolving field. Through personal interest, I had already gained some experience with DevOps technologies, such as creating pipelines (automated workflows) to support the development process. I was excited to bring my existing experiences in this area to anaptis and contribute to shaping the DevOps Engineer role from the ground up internally. Engaging with innovative technologies has always been a passion of mine.
„In our small team, everyone counts.“
Julien, Technical Consultant (former trainee)
I deliberately chose a smaller company for my training because challenging tasks and independent work were very important to me and still are today. My expectation that each employee counts in a small team and that you can contribute your own ideas quickly came true, which I really like.
My daily tasks are very diverse. They range from managing and configuring servers and networks, to planning and procuring IT infrastructure, as well as providing support to employees and our customers. I work both at my workspace at anaptis (shared office), as well as on-site at the customer’s location.
Even during my apprenticeship, I enjoyed the work a lot. My training profession brings new challenges every day. Whether it’s system errors or other disruptions – it never gets boring and remains diverse. In the technical field, there are always new developments, so you’re never really done learning. Furthermore, the work environment is fantastic. Depending on the season, we barbecue together, finish off Friday evenings in the old town, or play table football together in our “ana-con bar.”
It is important to be computer-savvy and to enjoy acting as a problem solver. In addition, as a trainee in the technical field, you should be open to change, as technical possibilities are constantly evolving and it is important to always stay up to date.
It was already explained to me during the job interview that they train for their own needs. This gave me a good sense of self-worth. During the training, I was allowed to work basically independently and make my own decisions, so that the transition to everyday working life as a trained employee was easy for me. Today, my job title is Technical Consultant. My area of responsibility has expanded somewhat through advising our customers on how to optimize their hardware. In the near future, my area of responsibility will expand further as I get to share my knowledge and experience with new trainees, which I’m really looking forward to!
„I’m treated individually and there is a lot of flexibility.“
Sven, Branch Manager and Sales Consultant
Even before I started, I noticed that the startup spirit has been preserved here despite the years of experience. Besides the opportunity to contribute my skills and motivation to the company, I was convinced by the good interaction with colleagues and the partnership approach in working with customers.
Regarding the sharing of ideas: My own experience has shown me that even if the job advertisement may not be a perfect fit, it’s always worth getting in touch with anaptis. Because the Branch Manager position was actually created through the exchange in the job interview with the two managing directors. An expansion towards Northern Germany had been planned for a while to provide local colleagues and current/future customers with proximity and local contacts.
anaptis stands out primarily due to its short decision-making processes and the freedoms afforded to each team member in how and where they shape their workday.
Similar to larger companies, there are great development and career opportunities here, as well as additional offerings. However, I believe that the quantity of offerings isn’t as crucial as the focus on individual employee needs, and that’s the case at anaptis.
Furthermore, I’ve experienced a more distant working atmosphere at previous employers. At times, there was even a sense of competition among colleagues. I’m glad to have moved away from that. Today, I’m in direct contact with our management, and I can promptly contribute suggestions that are actually heard and accepted. Overall, I feel that at anaptis, there’s a greater focus on me and my needs, and the flexibility is significantly greater.
I really enjoy working at anaptis. The customers I’ve encountered so far are very satisfied with anaptis’ work and the project teams. That speaks for itself.
My colleagues are motivated and dedicated, always willing to help if I have a question. Additionally, there are social teams alongside the project teams, where there’s a daily exchange and support. Information (such as updates in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Power Platform, or DevOps) is shared with everyone on dedicated Teams channels.
„In our team, everyone supports each other. At all times.“
Johanna, Team Assistance
I really appreciated the open exchange during the job interview. For instance, I was asked about the topics I enjoy the most. This made me feel that they were not just looking for someone who meets the requirements of the position, but also considering my strengths and/or development opportunities.
Even after the interview, I always received quick responses to my questions, and this initial impression was further confirmed in my day-to-day work due to the short decision-making processes.
Lastly, I was impressed by the presence on social media and the website. I had the sense that this could be a team I’d enjoy working with, where everyone supports each other – and that’s exactly how it turned out from day one.
As a team assistant, I have frequent interactions with the entire team, which I thoroughly enjoy. I handle various tasks such as accounting, HR matters, and organizational aspects related to daily office routines or special events like our annual summer and Christmas parties.
I really enjoy my job. The multitude of different topics I deal with on a daily basis keeps things exciting. I also greatly value collaborating with colleagues, whether it’s in marketing, sales, or project teams. This initially helped me quickly familiarize myself with various departments within the company. Everyone is attentive and assists me even with challenging topics.
