What we offer!

We are not a start-up. But we live IT. You can read about what we mean here.



Anonymity on the net: with us gladly. Anonymity at work: not with us! We value our colleagues not only for their competence, but also as people. That is important to us.


Added Value

We are the digital backbone of research and together with you we want to make our contribution to curing serious diseases, to high-performance physics and to the Digital Humanities.



Working in IT at a top university is many things - but not boring. We offer an agile and dynamic work environment where we find solutions to problems that didn't exist yesterday.


Location security

You don't take risks with us! Since 1818, the university has been shaping the city of Bonn, and since 1974, we have been shaping your computing capacities as a central IT service provider. We are not a trend. We remain.



We offer fields of activity that are not available anywhere else: maintaining a city-wide network or designing high-performance computing are tasks that are rare, exciting and challenging at the same time.


You at the Centre

We see work as part of life, but not as the sole purpose of life. If you have children, care for relatives or only want to work part-time, that is a matter of course for us.
