proALPHA in Facts

As a specialist for medium-sized companies, proALPHA has been successful in the ERP business for more than 25 years. We are ranked number 3 in the market with more than 2,000 customers, for example in the manufacturing industry and trade. Worldwide about 125,000 users in various industries are working with the ERP system proALPHA. We are present all around the globe with 26 locations in order to provide our customers with excellent service and competent consulting.

However, the closeness to the customers is not only achieved in the organization. It is mostly achieved by the people: more than 1,000 employees building an international and interdisciplinary team thanks to their qualifications and experience. This team is successfully and consequently expanded.

Start-Up Spirit? We Are Living It!

Flat hierarchies, short decision paths and a consequent "hands-on" mentality – these are our strengths. What sounds like the ideal atmosphere of a start-up, is reality for proALPHA. You wonder how we are actively using our strengths for our development and the achievement of our goals? By always communicating openly and as equal partners, by supporting each other and cooperating constructively.

Our motto is collegiality, and not competitiveness. This starts for us with the salutation: We are on a first-name basis - independently of age or position. We have an informal company culture based on openness and respect, mutual loyalty and inspiring variety. In this way, we create an atmosphere in which we can optimally develop as a team and bring the greatest possible benefit to our customers.

Your Benefits as a proALPHA Employee

Exiting tasks are not enough for you? Not for us either. We want to create the ERP world of tomorrow. Together with highly motivated employees who are thrilled by this goal every day. At proALPHA, you can enjoy the freedom you need and benefit from attractive extras.

Home Office? Always an Option

Teamwork depends on personal cooperation. We are using the latest IT and communication tools to connect our employees in virtual teams - across all locations and home offices. Your advantage? In coordination with superiors and colleagues, you can do your work from almost everywhere. Totally flexible.

The Working Atmosphere Makes All the Difference

Work should be fun. The key to this, next to the actual tasks, is mainly the working atmosphere. Appreciation for the performance of the individual and optimum working conditions are a must. That is why we believe in the following principles:

  • Flexible working hours in coordination with colleagues and superiors
  • Modern work equipment for all employees
  • Working with a high degree of personal responsibility and creative freedom
  • Agile software development under optimum conditions (Joel Test score 11/12)
  • Openness for innovation projects

Regular Events Build Team Spirit

Celebrating together, sharing experience, getting to know colleagues from other locations or doing sports: There are many things that bring us closer together as a team. We do all of them to strengthen the bond in the big proALPHA family. Examples:

  • Frequent company events in individual locations and company-wide - e.g. Christmas parties and New Year's office parties, summer parties and anniversary celebrations
  • Welcome Days for new employees
  • Participation in sporting events like the annual company runs
  • proALPHA Technology Exchange – our annual innovation summit for users and developers

Providing for the Future – with proALPHA

Retirement provisions (BAV) and contributions to capital formation (VWL) are two important components for financial security in old age. As a proALPHA employee, both components can grow to a considerable size. Our HR team is happy to support and advice you. They can help you, for example, after you started to work with us, to adopt your existing contracts with pension funds or direct insurance.

Retirement provisions haven't been an issue for you so far? Well, it's about time. At proALPHA, you have the possibility of contracting direct insurance in cooperation with our partner or an insurer of your choice. Moreover, you can benefit from contributions to capital formation each month.

Saving Value Credits and Enjoying Your Liberty

There are periods in life in which we want to set priorities differently. For example to travel, to start a private project or to spend an extended time with our children, to take care of family members or to retire early. You are asking yourself how you can create this liberty without loosing your social security coverage? With a personal value credit account at proALPHA.

benefit@work – the Family Service for Employees

To be more precise, we rely on the experts of the family service of the Work-Life-Management GmbH (benefit@work).
