Shaping the Future Together

At our research institute, we are ahead of our time. We are visionaries, pioneers, doers. We are shaping the world of work of tomorrow. We have around 200 employees in the fields of smart work systems, resource efficient manufacturing and logistics, convergent infrastructures, digital engineering, and Industrie 4.0.

The Fraunhofer IFF has been rooted in in Magdeburg for over twenty-five years. We develop innovative solutions for concrete use cases here together with our industry partners. We are actively involved in such social megatrends as digital transformation or integrated energy with our projects in Germany and all over the world.

Our employees are actively helping shape the future with great dedication and substantial personal freedom. Whether with a successful dissertation in academia or the desire for a professional internship after high school graduation, we are collectively creating something new and thus shaping the world in which we will live tomorrow.

Work and Life

We are innovative in more than just our research projects. We are also an employer that provides its employees many personal opportunities and benefits. Our company pension plan provides security and, since we are an employer affiliated with the civil service, salaries are of course transparent, fair and gender-neutral. We support equal opportunity with numerous actions. We offer special development programs for women and actively support individual career planning.

Since balancing career with family and life is extremely important to us, we follow innovative work schedules and support personal work-at-home solutions. And since parenting always requires a certain flexibility, we provide a parent-child office to employees so that they can care for their children uncomplicatedly and stress-free should the need suddenly arise.

Since we want our employees to be healthy and to remain productive for a long time, we offer internal athletic and health programs.

Become a visionary, pioneer and doer, too. Apply for a publicized job opening or spontaneously. We’re waiting for you!
