We are convinced that our trainee’s quick integration in our current projects helps connect them to real-life experiences and build their knowledge.

    About fme

    fme is a service provider for the IT sector and was founded in Brunswick, Germany, in 1995. We have an international presence with a European subsidiary in Cluj Napoca, Romania, and U.S. one in Danbury, Connecticut. In addition to our headquarters in Brunswick, we also have sites and offices in the German cities of Munich, Frankfurt (Main), and Düsseldorf.

    We currently have a workforce of approximately 16 employees in Romania and about 190 employees in Germany. In total we are about 240 people globally, and we’re constantly expanding.

    What does fme mean?

    These three letters are an amalgamation of the initials of the company’s founders, Frank Mittelstaedt and Michael Engelen.

    What we offer

    Nowadays, information such as documents, database entries or various KPIs is no longer only available at companies in paper form. Instead it is often stored digitally and managed by a range of different systems. Digital management and the effective use of information are highly complex activities in large companies.

    Digitization enables new ways of dealing with existing businesses and creates totally new business models. We help our clients worldwide to master their digital transformation in order to remain competitive and to explore future markets.

    This we achieve by optimizing or challenging our clients’ business models through existing and new technologies and by advising them on the necessary cultural change in their company.

    • Cloud, Big Data & Internet of Things
    • Virtual Reality
    • Business Intelligence
    • Social Business Collaboration
    • Enterprise Content Management technologies in combination with
    • custom software development and
    • the ability to operate our clients’ systems 24×7

    help us to add value to our clients’ transformation process.

    Culture & Values

    We are very proud of our corporate culture. Values such as ‘open,’ ‘honest,’ and ‘fair’ don’t just exist in our marketing slideshows or corporate presentations, they are ingrained in our everyday work.

    At fme you have the opportunity to flexibly adapt your working hours to your personal circumstances. That is for example why many mothers work part-time, even at management level, in order to achieve a better balance between their private and professional lives.

    There’s a very friendly, open atmosphere at fme. Flat hierarchies are in place and all employees, from the trainees to the board of directors, address each other informally. The fme Culture Book came into being in 2011. You will find a slider with some quotes a bit further up on this page and may order your own copy or download the full PDF.
