Software Engineering

At Camunda, we have a simple goal: automate any processes, anywhere.

Camunda is an open source software company innovating process automation with a developer-friendly approach that is standards-based, highly scalable and collaborative for business and IT.  A community of tens of thousands of users across companies such as Vodafone, ING, Allianz, Lufthansa and Atlassian design, automate and improve mission-critical business processes end-to-end with Camunda. Camunda has been repeatedly recognized by Deloitte as a high-growth company and has a presence in Germany, United States, UK, Singapore and Australia.

Our values are best summarized by FAITH: We work with Focus, Ambition, Integrity, Talent and Humor.
