Expats at Jimdo
I first learned about Jimdo through a job posting on StackOverflow and eventually ended up on their technical blog. They had already built an app with Flutter which was a new technology at the time and Jimdo struck me as one of those companies that wasn’t afraid to experiment — and I wanted to be a part of it. The interview experience with them was very pleasant but I needed a visa to come to Germany. I had a ton of questions along the way, and the people here welcomed them and were extremely patient and helpful. Once I got to Germany, I was again supported with everything I needed, including an apartment ready for my stay. Over the next couple of weeks, my new colleagues gave me a warm welcome and helped me settle in. I’ve been loving it here ever since!
Jimdo made me feel like there was nothing I had to worry about when moving to Hamburg. They gave me a place to stay while I found my own, supported me with all the paperwork, and made me feel like there were no language barriers as someone from the company was always with me.

First of all, I’d like to say thank you for giving me this opportunity and for having faith in me. In a world of innovation and dreams, Jimdo has given me the opportunity to explore all the possibilities and opportunities of current technology. They’ve also made me feel comfortable and settled—it’s like my second home. Working with a company like Jimdo which has great values and principles gave me immense joy and job satisfaction. Thanks, Jimdo team.
I found an open position at Jimdo and the company culture immediately caught my attention. After a few remote interviews, I was invited to the office for the last steps, where I had the chance to meet awesome people, experience the culture, and explore the city. Moving to another country is definitely intimidating, but the Jimdo team was always there to help with the visa process and relocation, and also providing a temporary apartment until I could find my own. Living and working here has been amazing and it’s one of the best decisions I've ever made!
The path of joining Jimdo was very smooth. I always felt connected during the interview process and no questions went unanswered about the visa process or my relocation to a completely different country. And boy, was I surprised by how Jimdo made me feel when I joined! Friendly colleagues, accommodation, and quick and efficient onboarding. With Jimdo's diverse culture and so many nationalities, it felt like home in no time.

Product & Engineering
Jimdo is a product-driven company, and as product managers and engineers, we sit right at the heart of it. Our mission is to understand the challenges our customers face and create, build, test, and deliver real solutions. We do our best work when Product & Engineering work closely on a shared vision, to make sure what we build is reliable, scalable, and delivers the best in user experience. Our work drives the success of our company and our customers, so we gather insights quickly through testing and MVPs to continuously improve and meet new challenges.

Marketing & PR
Small businesses can achieve amazing things. Here in Marketing & PR, we make sure our target customers know about all the help Jimdo can give them. From our website builder to the Legal Text Generator, we’re responsible for presenting Jimdo’s products to the world with all their unique advantages. This means you’ll find us working across social media, print, digital, and TV campaigns. Thriving in a competitive market means never standing still. So we’re always looking for new ways to make Jimdo an unmistakable brand, by developing new concepts, writing captivating copy, and working together on creative ads that bring our brand to life.
Ever fallen in love with a faceless corporation? Neither have we! That’s why our talented Marketing and UX designers use unique visuals to tell the Jimdo story. Our Marketing designers are the masters of creative storytelling. They support teams across the company with content that inspires, convinces, and entertains—on social media and online ads, landing pages, OOH, and merchandising. Our UX designers help shape the products we build. They know a great user experience can change a customer’s day, so they collaborate with stakeholders, UX writers, and developers to understand our goals and build intuitive tools. You’ll find them researching, sketching, wireframing, and prototyping, then supporting developers to make their ideas happen.
In our business, things move fast. And so do we. This means at any point in time, teams at Jimdo can be building new products, tweaking marketing strategies, experimenting with technology or coming up with new ways to solve a problem for our customers. In the Data team, we help the company navigate uncharted territory by laying the foundations for good business decisions. We generate insights to help every team achieve their goals, with A/B testing, analysing customer behaviour, and providing an accurate reporting and data infrastructure. But our mission is bigger than that—we constantly strive to improve transparency and data fluency across the company. So we can all work more efficiently, fail faster, and help more business owners across the world achieve their goals.
At Jimdo, our customers inspire everything we do. And nobody knows them better than we do in the Customer Support team!
