Our team

These are some of your potential new colleagues! See what they have to say about Leadbacker — in their own words.

Leadbacker consists of a diverse team, which I personally find very enriching. In addition, we operate with flat hierarchies and we offer an extremely flexible working model, which allows you to create your own work-life balance. 

Personally, I also appreciate the many opportunities to learn and grow within the company, as well as the financial study support.


Since I've been working at Leadbacker, I've been constantly pushed out of my comfort zone and into the learning and growth zone, which has contributed significantly to my personal development.

Marketing Team Lead

Coming to Leadbacker first as a student helped me to combine the theoretical and practical world. From the first day onwards I had the opportunity to find my own projects and work with great colleagues who support you wherever they can.

Product Owner Consultant

Leadbacker offers me the perfect opportunity to combine studying at university with a job.

It fascinates me to learn things theoretically at university and to see and help shape them directly in practice at Leadbacker. I am glad to be part of a great team that allows me to gain new experiences, to grow and to develop myself further.

Marketing Assistant & Controlling

In the product development team at Leadbacker, our responsibilities greatly transcend just writing and shipping code. We are not just a number in a big enterprise, instead we are given full ownership of the product we are building and are able to have a positive impact from day one.

The company provides a lot of room to grow - both personally and professionally. Join us to work alongside smart and humble colleagues, who are always ready to provide meaningful feedback and to help each other out!
