What you can expect from us

We offer our clients a wide range of standard software, cloud solutions and consulting services, combining our interest in insurance-specific technical topics with our passion for developing innovative software solutions. We have compiled a breakdown of the work carried out by software developers here.


Is programming almost like a second language to you and are you maybe even fluent in Java? If so, you have come to the right place because software development is our core skill.


Platform-independent, flexible design of business processes and access channels, high performance even with large user volumes, flexible scalability – that is what makes our software stand out. Aside from the continuous optimisation and development of our proprietary standard product, msg.Insurance Suite, diverse customer projects always involve new, interesting assignments and challenges. As an application developer or software engineer, for example, you will analyse and implement specific customer requirements and be in charge of the conceptualisation and technical implementation of customisations. Alternatively, as a build manager, you will be responsible for making sure that the technical infrastructure of the system integration for building and running our software works properly, is maintained and is augmented to meet customer requirements. When it comes to projects, teamwork is very important to us: when consulting on technical requirements and coordinating development tasks, but also across all project phases, you will work closely with our interdisciplinary team – sometimes even right on the premises of our customers. In this process, you will coordinate closely with your colleagues from related technical fields and have the opportunity to work in an agile manner across different offices.
