Wer wir sind

Wir sind ein HR Tech Startup aus Hamburg mit dem Ziel unpersönliche, standardisierte Bewerbungsformulare abzuschaffen und Personalisierung auch ins Recruiting zu bringen.

Was wir tun

Bei elbwalker treffen wir Business-Entscheidungen basierend auf Daten, nicht auf Meinungen. Was ist der beste Markt? Welches Feature bauen wir als nächstes? Das beste auf Daten basierende Argument gewinnt!

Warum wir tun was wir tun

Wir glauben an eine Kombination aus kreativer und pragmatischer Problemlösung, um die Komplexität der Datenanalyse und KI zu verringern und das Thema Personalisierung für die Personalbranche zugänglich zu machen.
elbwalker Team

Our mission

We change the way companies collect data. Making truly data-driven decisions has been a privilege of only large enterprises for too long. We believe that with a combination of creative and pragmatic problem solving, we can reduce the complexity of data analysis and make it accessible also to organizations with limited tech resources. We are committed to empower companies of all sizes and all industries to make decisions based on their most valuable resource: their customers. We're not just building a new software, we want to establish a whole new web standard. This is our part to make the analytics industry more tangible, transparent and democratic.

We are into data analytics and low-code technologies. Are you too? Then check out our current jobs and write us at work@elbwalker.com. We're happy if we can inspire you to be part of our journey. Perhaps the further information will help you with your decision.

Our values

"We focus on simplicity!"

Pareto principle: Not everything has to be perfect. We prefer to reach our goals step by step and optimize iteratively. That's why we sometimes knock over initial ideas. The 80/20 rule guides us. For us, effectiveness comes before efficiency.

Transparency & Speed: We want to focus on the essentials in our work. That is why we make decisions quickly and transparently. We mainly use data for this purpose. Because we love the added value of data and data-driven decisions - not only for our customers.

"We take initiative!"

Proactivity: For us, participation and freedom apply at all levels. We structure our tasks ourselves and do not wait for work packages. We believe: those who work independently are more commited to their goals.

Participation: We believe that our culture is continually changing. Every team member helps to shape our culture. At elbwalker, we share the values ​​presented here, but we also bring our own experiences and point of views. That is why we speak of culture add-on rather than culture fit when it comes to new team members.

"We act like owners!"

Customer focus: Our customers and their feedback are the most important drivers of our work. We are passionate about solving their problems. Those who work with us make our customers happiness a priority.

Entrepreneurial spirit: The role and energy of each individual is important for the success of elbwalker. We know our strength, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges and those of our industry and use our entrepreneurial spirit to tackle or further develop them.

"We adapt to change!"

Pivoting: We keep a close eye on our industry and know that our market is changing quickly. That is why we have the flexibility for constant changes and adjustments. elbwalker will continue to grow and in a year will no longer be the company it is now. And we think that's awesome.

Traveling: Working in a startup is like going on a somewhat uncertain but adventurous journey. We keep adapting to new situations and people. For this journey we all bring perseverance, courage and a sense of humor. We laugh a lot ... seriously a lot.

"We strive for growth!" 

Feedback: We aim to continuously improve our product, our company, our team and ourselves as individuals. We value constant reflection as well as giving and receiving feedback. This is how we can live an honest and open exchange at our company.

Learning: We know what we're good at and what we're not good at yet. We want to learn new things all the time. We can only get better by trying things out and making mistakes. Our company is complemented by our different strengths and we can all learn from each other. We trust and rely on the competence and supportiveness of the other.
