Home in the heart of Cologne.

More precisely: in the old forge in the Krafthaus in Cologne's Rheinauhafen.

hijob is spread over various cities in Rhineland. But our common heart beats in the middle of Cologne.

In immediate vicinity of the world-famous crane houses, we found the perfect anchorage in the Rheinauhafen: the former energy center of the entire port - the »Krafthaus«

The historic brick building is a very special place for us:

  • A place where we celebrate the exchange of ideas as the core of what we do,
  • give free rein to our creativity or (at the appropriate opportunity)

  • simply enjoy a refreshing Kölsch beer together.
Just like our beloved Rhine, which flows along right outside our door, we too are constantly on the move. We change perspective. We make things up. We try things out.

And there is one thing we can definitely count on:

Et kütt wie et kütt (Kölsch for 'Things come as they do') and et hätt noch immer joot jejange (Kölsch for'It always ended up well'. Meaning: 'Don't mind, it'll be okay').

Und genau deshalb fühlen wir uns in unserem Kölner Quartier so wohl. And that's exactly why we feel so at home in our Cologne quarter neighbourhood.

Wir pflanzen Bäume für Matches

Wir kümmern uns. Um dich und unseren Planeten!

Our commitment

We care.
For you and for our planet!

In order for all of us to continue celebrating our abilities on this planet for a long time to come, we must protect it.

That's why we launched the #TreesForJobs initiative:

We plant trees all over the world!
For every registration with hijob and every agreed job interview.

With brains, heart & humor

Meet our founders

Daniel Schaffeld (41) René Tillmann (47) are the founders and managing directors of hijob.  And also pretty nice.

They developed hijob to be able to show everyone where their skills are appropriately celebrated at every stage of their career.

The two family men already know each other from the collaboration of the companies they each founded before hijob.

Since then, they have been Partners in Crime and have vowed to start the next venture together.
Their declared goal: to make the world a better place.

Too old for a career as a skateboarding legend (or at least as an inline field hockey pro), but too restless to wrap themselves in genteel silence, they meet every other Thursday. Then they chat.

In their podcast "Helden der Arbeit" (English: 'Heroes of work') they share their thoughts on topics related to the "Future of Work".

Our podcast about the future of work - with lots of valuable tips!

How will we work in 2030?

Daniel and René sit down together every 2 weeks and exchange thoughts. E.g. about if and when guys like them will finally be replaced by robots.

Join them as they strap on their capes and explore how we'll work in 2030. Along the way, they share anecdotes and visions worth listening to.

"Helden der Arbeit" is available every second Thursday morning - on the podcast platform you trust and as an RSS feed.

Because on Thursdays the heroes of work go to work with the heroes of work ;-)
