Who we are
Each of us is a responsible owner of multiple roles. We walk the talk and make things happen. We are masters of self-organization and let our entrepreneurial spirit run free. Failure is allowed and respected. We back each other up, share our experiences and find solutions together because the tribe is greater than the sum of its individual parts. We win and learn as one team.
Our favorite question is ‘why’. This is why every single circle and role in our organization follows a purpose, a clear north star, a shared goal to aim for. We keep our eyes on the prize and our desired outcome in the back of our mind to make sure we all follow a common mission and share the same beliefs for the bigger picture.
“Mission accomplished” is not enough. We reflect and challenge everything – the status quo, Mercedes-Benz and ourselves. We love taking on a good challenge and pushing boundaries where we see potential for evolution. Our focus always stays on what creates the highest sustainable impact and how to get there.
As a flat-hierarchical company we work as we live: collaborative, reflective, ambitious and united. We know there are more ways than one to reach targets. Each individual connection makes us stronger and better. By being transparent and living a respectful feedback-culture, everyone can benefit from our skills, experience and creative passion.
HOW TO culture
We start our week as a tribe. Every Monday we come together for our company all-hands to catch up on the latest news, introduce our new joiners and round it all up with some happy news that will brighten our week.
Our tribe is united during and after office hours. With colleagues with all sorts of interest, we have formed multiple initiatives, where MB.ioneers share their passions and spend some quality time together. Our clubs go from sports like surfing and entire soccer teams to a group of photographers and even our own band!
Every location has joint breakfast once a week. Before our first meetings and calls, we head to our offices’ social areas and prepare for the day with coffee by our co-worker baristas or avocado toasts – early birds clearly have an advantage here.
Outside of our initial scope at Mercedes-Benz.io, we get to engage in other topics of our choice to create an impact. Our impact time projects go from internal podcasts and volunteering at animal shelters to developing whole websites for non-profit-organizations.
