Bon dia Barcelona!

NEW WORK SE offers a wide range of brands, products and services for a better working life.

Driven by New Work

We believe in a world of work where people can find their true self and achieve their full potential. This not only makes individuals more satisfied and happier, it also makes companies more successful.

One of the main products that is developed in Barcelona and Valencia is called XING, the professional social network leader in the DACH area with more than 16 million users.

5 reasons to come to Barcelona?

  • One of the most important Tech Hubs in Europe.
  • 286 sunny days a year – means great office mood, happiness and quality of life
  • Mmmm… Food! Full of gastronomy and enology choices.
  • Cultural life: music festivals, theatre, museums, etc.
  • Beach or mountains? Take both

What’s NEW WORK?

To better understand what we mean by NEW WORK, we have to highlight Frithjof Bergmann, a social philosopher who coined this term. “His approach focuses on the creativity and personality of employees. Hence, the fundamental values of New Work are freedom, independence and community.”

 

That’s why changing our name to New Work is a logical next step in XING’s overall development as a company, to pursue our vision more holistically. We have been more than a professional social network for some time now and it’s time to recognize us as one “solar system".

 

What if we combine living in Barcelona and working at NEW WORK SE?

Our vision "for a better working life" is also our aim to create the best possible working conditions for our colleagues as an employer.

 

Here in Barcelona we are working on that vision with 22 different nationalities together with the pursuit of equality. For now we have 25% women working here in Barcelona.
