2024: A year of transformation

Over the past two decades, our company has continuously evolved. Founded by Lars Hinrichs as OpenBC in 2003, the company became the first web 2.0 business to go public in 2006 under the name XING. In 2019, we introduced the New Work Group, having acquired brands such as kununu and launching new businesses ourselves. We enjoyed huge success, and some major setbacks along the way. Despite these challenges and our competitors predicting our downfall, we’ve proven our resilience, continued to be forward-thinking, and always come up with ways to stay ahead of the game. However, change is constant within the New Work Group, and 2024 marks another major milestone in our evolution. We recently decided to refocus on our flagship brands XING and kununu, demonstrating our commitment to shaping the future of our company and striving towards our vision “for a better working life”.

Change is constant

We work fast, and things can change quickly. Sometimes things can even change so quickly that the groundbreaking project you just worked on has to take a completely new direction. There may be times where we feel lost. We know that can be frustrating, but we don’t drag ourselves down over it. We believe in change, innovation and making bold moves that helps us become successful in what we do. We think ahead and grow with every transformation. 

Can you thrive in challenging times?

We want you to be bold, committed, and if you make mistakes, own them and learn from them. It's your dedication that drives our overall success.
