WE REVOLUTIONIZE THE WAY BRANDS ENGAGE IN LIVE SPORTS

Join us on our mission

IT ALL STARTED ...

The two GIPEDO co-founders Matthias and Lars met through a mutual friend by coincidence in 2018. Lars' idea of a digital marketplace for virtual advertising brought them together for their first meeting at Café Johanna. As it turned out, the location became their meeting goto place for a series of further discussions. 
While still pursuing a somewhat different approach at the time, it quickly became clear to them that there were more challenges to overcome than initially assumed.
The ideas matured and they started building their first prototype in 2019. An exercise that taught them what didn't work. The latter gave reason to pivot from the original idea of a marketplace for virtual advertising to digital services for business in sports. In August 2021 GIPEDO officially went live.

JOIN US

Regularly we are looking for co-workers who share our values and want to be part of the team.

 

Although we work in sports tech – many of our positions neither require deep knowledge in tech nor in sports business. More so we seek for people that are curious about tapping into new grounds with us.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US:

EMBRACE THE CHALLENGE

We love questioning the status quo - for ourselves and the business environment. We do this because we are convinced that there is always something to improve.

INNOVATE RELENTLESSLY

We define success by the benefits we deliver. Innovation starts with a vision. We put the vision into ideas, ideas into action. Along this journey, we create, fall, learn, adapt and love to start all over again.

STRIVE FOR DIVERSITY

We believe that innovative ideas come from bringing together different backgrounds, experiences and ways of thinking and working.

GIVE SPACE FOR PERSONAL GROWTH

Different people require different framework conditions. That's why we trust our employees to responsibly and respectfully take what they need to grow, learn and work.

BREATHE TEAMSPIRIT

We know that it takes a lot of energy to break new ground. This is only possible with teamwork. That is why mutual support, openness, honesty and, above all, empathy for one another are our top priorities.

FLEXIBILITY IN PLACE

If remote or in our office in Hamburg. Choose freely from where you want to work.

FLEXIBILITY IN TIME

We know different circumstances require different working models. We are open to make the job suitable for you – if part-time, fulltime or even in a job-sharing model.

We work better in a team. Therefore, we regularly offer you to join our team events such as casual afterwork drinks or team buildings.
