We develop software for configuration. While one department develops our products further, the largest department adapts them to individual customer needs in projects.
Around it, various teams deal with e.g. the use of Saas, visual solutions or process and modelling consulting.
A lot of things at encoway are agile. Our processes, but also the way we solve challenges. This works so well because we deal with each other in an open-minded and respectful way.
We equip you with a starter set full of trust, interest and appreciation. You are the fresh view from outside that moves us forward.
In our onboarding you will get to know us and the encoway world. Together with your manager, you will find personal perspectives and shape your own further development.
We know that work is not everything. To make your life easier, we offer flexible working hours, hybrid working models, job bike leasing and childcare allowances.

Application as an employer
When you apply for a job with us, we check whether you are a good fit for us or for the position advertised. We think it’s only fair if you can check beforehand whether we are a good match for you. This is also how we apply to you.
Configure = compile product/service individually
Price = Calculate price
Quote = Create a quotation
Simply put: We develop software for customers who offer individually configured products or services. During configuration, the price is calculated and an offer is made. During configuration Our configurators thus offer our customers a competitive advantage, because we digitalise their sales processes and thus ensure error-free quotations in the shortest possible time. Of course, there is much more to it than that. If you want to delve deeper, you can find more information here.
As a training company, we accompany the practical part of your training in the following professions
- IT specialist for application development
- IT specialist for system integration
- Management assistant for office management
You’re not sure whether studying or training is right for you? Perhaps a dual study programme in computer science is right for you. It combines the high level of practical training as an IT specialist for application development with the theoretical background of a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.
Every year, many trainees and dual students start their training with us. In addition to the technical content, we also have a lot of fun. Through joint activities such as quiz nights, Escape Room or scavenger hunts, you get to know each other and your instructors better, so that you can then start the following training blocks as a team.

Welcome aboard! Your first day is just around the corner and we are looking forward to meeting you. What can you expect on your first day? Well, we can’t be sure exactly, but it’s pretty certain that your contact person will meet you at the NEOS reception and show you the most important places in the building. You will get to know your new place and your new colleagues. Your team – you will probably have a buddy in your team – and our IT will support you in setting up your equipment, and you will have some time to settle in. Your onboarding programme will start in the next few days.
We don’t throw you in at the deep end. In the first few weeks, you will get to know the encoway world in the onboarding programme. What does NAT do? Which department is sprinting? What awaits you in the story hour? We would like to answer all these questions and you should experience how we deal with each other and get to know many new colleagues. So that you know who to ask what in the future. We are happy that you are on board!
This is how our application process works:

“Butter on the Fish”. So that you can get a better picture of us, we’ll tell you a little bit about us. Who we are, where you can find us and where our journey is going.
First of all: We are all on first name terms. Our crew is made up of people with diverse backgrounds in different areas: software development, project and product management, product and data modelling, service, consulting, sales, marketing, design, IT administration and business organisation.
Together we create an environment that suits us. A mix of free space and supportive processes helps us to do this. To keep it that way, it’s up to all of us. This includes that we do not stop questioning things and also give each other feedback. A positive attitude towards the work of our colleagues helps us to communicate in an appreciative way and at eye level.
We are convinced that it is important to know what it looks like behind one’s own nose. That’s why we have an extensive onboarding programme that teaches you one thing above all else in addition to technical content: Contact with people. You get to know people who you can approach – regardless of position, age, gender or education – to discuss different topics and opinions.
encoway is part of the Lenze Group, a leading automation company for mechanical engineering. The headquarters of encoway is the NEOS in the technology park around the University of Bremen. The NEOS is not only our office building, but much more an ecosystem that promotes innovation. With us, start-ups, industry-related companies and scientific institutions have dropped anchor in the NEOS. From different perspectives, we all work – sometimes collaboratively – on solutions to advance digitalisation in industry.
The NEOS is also home to DOCK ONE. This is our digital lab, where we shape the industry of tomorrow together with customers and partners. “Our” means: encoway, our parent company Lenze and our “sister” logicline. Here we have space to create innovations and evaluate new business models. This is how we help shape the future of the industry. In doing so, we look at technologies that are already known, such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), as well as those that are still emerging.
The worlds mix in the fitness room, galley and roof terrace. At the latest during lunch break, employees sit next to customers and guests from all over the world. Jeans and T-shirts mix with ties and suits.
Our customers are mainly companies from the manufacturing industry with a wide range of products. Effective production faces the desire of their customers for individualization and high, international competitive pressure. The crises of recent years have alternated, sometimes unexpectedly, with phases of strong growth.
In this market situation, resilient companies have the best chances. This is exactly what we do, because our configuration software makes our customers more adaptable and our consulting helps our customers to question and optimize their own processes. In short: We digitize sales and marketing processes and rethink them.
encoway was among the first providers of software for product configuration, which is historically one of the first successfully deployed AI technologies (AI: Artificial Intelligence). And exactly this configuration core is still the heart of our software today. Sure, it’s no longer the same code, we can do that better today, but the vision has remained.
“We are convinced that companies can master diversity with ease and offer individual products. We show how! We deliver the software!”
