An attractive place to work

Our corporate culture

Please learn more about our corporate culture, learning and working opportunities, and location.

Working in a cooperative

At DATEV, we provide our members and customers with sustainable, long-term, comprehensible solutions; we are not focused on short-term profits. Although we employ more than 8,600 people, our working environment is very informal and friendly — we take good care of our members and employees. May we give you an example? We have had only three CEOs since our company was founded in Nuremberg in 1966.

We are a cooperative for tax consultants, lawyers, auditors, and their clients. The development of our employees is very important to us. After all, those who learn a lot and continue to develop their skills are the ones who create forward-looking solutions for our members.

Our mission is to accompany and support these target groups over a long period in their daily work but also on their way into a digitalised future.

Diversity, equality, and inclusion

Diversity, equality, and inclusion are core values at DATEV. Diversity is a process, a joint learning from and with each other and an essential part of our social and working life. We don't want to influence and change people, but we want to create conditions enabling us to work together productively and profitably in heterogeneity and diversity. This is why we have not only selfregulated communities such as the "Community of Practice Diversity" and the LGBTIQ network "alltogether@DATEV" working for us but also the executive department "Diversity & Transformation".

We trust in a balance of specific measures such as diversity bar camps, exchange programmes, e.g., diversity talk or network events (with customers and members); the learning circle experience "Diversity & Inclusion", or the sponsorship of the "CSD Nürnberg", from active participation and a strategic anchoring in our corporate goals to our social strategy sustainability, just to name but a few.

Corporate responsibility

Sustainability is a guiding principle for DATEV — because it is crucial to rethink. Our corporate responsibility is demonstrated by the fact that, on the one hand, we offer our customers first-class services and products; on the other hand, we make a positive contribution to society, our employees, and the environment. DATEV has ambitious goals for a sustainable future in the areas of climate protection, transparency, responsibility for society and employees, sustainable innovations, and products. One of the most important goals is to become carbon neutral by 2030. Another focus is on our social interactions: honesty, understanding, and appreciation.

Learning & Cooperation

DATEV digicamps

If 'camp' makes you think of a caravan holiday — think again. DATEV digicamp is a series of events designed to drive the digital transformation of our business and strengthen DATEV's ability to manage change. Our leading target group is our employees. To be inspired by external impulses, there are internal tickets and tickets for external participants (e.g., customers, companies, partners, andstart-ups). Participants can choose from various sessions and organise their day individually.

DATEV camps are full of committed colleagues willing to share their expertise and treat each other with great openness and appreciation. This is why DATEV is increasingly using the agile format. Staff barcamps, digicamps, or CoCreationcamps — these DATEV events are the perfect place to exchange know-how, build networks, and get new ideas for your own work area.

Global Day of Code Retreat (GDCR)

Do you love coding? Then our "Global Day of Code Retreat" (GDCR) is perfect for you. We have been hosting this event at our IT Campus for several years to mark this global day of action. And we are proud to say that our contribution to the GDCR is regularly one of the most significant events in the world. About 100 participants code, learn, and exchange views intensively. The coding sessions are followed by an evening event where all participants can meet software developers, network, and get a first glimpse into the world of DATEV.


The world of IT moves fast. That is why it is essential to keep up to date and learn. Lifelong learning isn't just a buzzword for us; it's part of our corporate culture. That is why we have our own DATEV Education Centre, and various Communities of Practice set up by our employees. Active staff members meet regularly to exchange views on specific topics and develop their skills. One example is the Software Craft Community. There are also communities for specific subject areas or agile techniques such as scrum. The open approach to knowledge and the regular exchange between participants is one of DATEV's trademarks.

Our location

Nuremberg and region

Are you thinking of moving to or near Nuremberg? Good idea! Around 3.5 million people call the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region their home. And they seem to love it because Nuremberg is one of the thirty most liveable cities in the world. Economic strength paired with high recreational value — a convincing combination. With a population of half a million, Nuremberg has much to offer in all areas. Many restaurants, bars and pubs invite you to spend a relaxed evening. Events such as the "Blaue Nacht" (Blue Night), one of the world's largest open-air classical concerts, or the "Bardentreffen" (Gathering of the Minstrels) bring Nuremberg to life. Nuremberg is also a city for sports fans and culture lovers alike. And those seeking peace and relaxation will find it all around Nuremberg. There are many regions, such as the "Fränkische Schweiz" (Franconian Switzerland) or the "Fränkische Seenland" (Franconian Lake District), which offer recreational areas in nature.

P.S.: Beer lovers are in good hands in the Franconian metropolis. We have around 160 breweries in our region — one of the highest brewery densities in the world!
