Frequentis develops and markets highly reliable communication and information systems for mission critical applications. The company is continuously growing worldwide, therefore the long-term development of employees is essential and there are always new opportunities available.
The company’s mission statement is “For a Safer World”, because Frequentis solutions help make the world a safer place. This is a special task that the organization is very proud of and is at the center of the corporate culture. In order to support mission-critical systems on a daily basis, it is essential to identify with the customers’ individual missions and have a deep understanding of their needs. The ability to offer the best solutions is enabled because we are able to understand how control centers (e.g. in air traffic management, emergency services, railways or coast guards) work and what is essential to their success.
Frequentis has successfully been providing communication and information systems for more than 70 years. Customers are located in 140 countries globally and our employees are just as multi-national. In addition to the company Headquarters in Vienna, Austria, there are offices in over 20 locations around the world, for example Romania, the United Kingdom, North America, Brazil, and Australia. Working at Frequentis means working in an international environment where you get to experience different cultures in a project-orientated environment
What makes us different from other international corporations is that we are a stock listed family company. Therefore, management decisions never lose sight of the people. It is important that employees feel good about coming to work in the morning and leaving later that day. There are individual routes to success based on the individual’s core skills – be it as a project manager, expert or manager, everyone can count on the opportunity to make their way at Frequentis. Careers are fostered offering a wide range of training options as well as individual development (e.g. from software engineer to solution architect or from trainee to project manager).
The company has received several awards for the special work environment it has created, such as being one of the most family-friendly companies in Austria in 2017 and as a “Top Company” on kununu.

We also offer challenging positions for project managers, product managers and international sales experts.
What we offer
What our employees appreciate most about working at Frequentis is the company culture and the sense of mutual respect and cooperation. Joining the company is made easier for new colleagues as they are supported by a “tutor” throughout their first year. Teams are used to taking initiative and the corresponding responsibility and doing their jobs with joy and a high level of commitment.
This is further facilitated by state-of-the-art working conditions. For example, a high degree of flexibility is provided in regards to structuring personal working time.

All business areas and support units are represented here, which is why there are so many career and training opportunities. We all share a passion for working on exciting and highly complex projects in an international environment.
An important success factor of our culture is flexibility in the way we work: Our employees can freely choose their working time and place of work as long as it is compatible with the operational requirements of the projects. This helps, among other things, to reconcile work and family life, which is important to many of our employees. In the office itself, open-plan offices invite employees to networked work, and on sunny days meetings can be held over a cup of coffee in the bright inner courtyard.
Career development is promoted and supported by internal career opportunities, training and the opportunity to spend time abroad. We are proud to keep so many employees at Frequentis for so many years through this offer - there is always something new to learn, to try out and the opportunity to share the knowledge acquired.
