HR and Administration

The fact that RECENDT offers flexibility through home office days and the possibility to work part-time even in a management role is really crucial for me. I have a long commute and a young child at home. I am in the company 2 days every week and in the home office the rest of the time. I can use the time on the train well to work and the connection between Linz and Vienna is very good. RECENDT also covers part of the costs for the climate ticket. In addition, RECENDT's location in the Science Park of the JKU is ideally connected to the public transport network and very easy to reach by bus as well as streetcar.

Not only was the work on my project itself a lot of fun, the exchange and conversations with colleagues, but also the always energetic help really made working at RECENDT a great pleasure for me. I have never experienced such a good working atmosphere as at RECENDT before - thank you for the great and fruitful time!
