Business Devices ≠ Personal Devices

We love our personal devices like smartphones, laptops or tablets and all of those can be used with enfore Business Apps. But for certain business needs, purpose-built devices are the way to go, e.g. enforeDasher, combining multiple hardware components in an amazing POS terminal, or the ultra-secure payment device enforePayPad. All enfore Business Devices are secure, robust, easy to set-up, maintenance free and designed to be shared among staff members.

— Who We Are —

Founder

Marco Boerries is a German entrepreneur with a passion for making ideas work. enfore AG is his fourth start-up and was founded in 2009 as NumberFour AG.

He founded his first company Star Division, inspired by a Silicon Valley school exchange, as a 16-year-old back in 1985. The company created the popular office suite StarOffice and later OpenOffice.org. Star Division was sold to Sun Microsystems in 1999 and Marco stayed on as Vice President.

He started his second company Star Finanz as a joint-venture with the Deutsche Sparkassen Organisation in 1996, to re-invent online banking with StarMoney – that became the leading product in Germany. Marco sold his share in StarFinanz to his joint venture partners in 2001.

Marco Boerries

I deeply care about enabling small businesses to become more competitive and successful. Having started four businesses myself, I know how hard and rewarding it can be at the same time. Small is beautiful!

Team

Buzzing with energy, enthusiasm and experience, an amazing team of all ages and nationalities is excited by the challenge of pushing the limits of business, technology, design – and their own potential.

On a mission since 2009, this close-knit team has crafted a solid, comprehensive foundation of something truly amazing: A software platform to make things easier for small businesses, and enable them to be more competitive.

With a keen eye for the big picture, all the way down to smallest detail, these specialists stick to one simple rule: Does each design or feature meet our requirements and objective? If the answer is no, it’s back to the drawing board!

They pour their heart and soul into a platform and apps that are beautifully designed and quite sophisticated under the hood. To achieve this and to bring order to the complexity, it requires plenty of talent, passion, perseverance and determination. So that in the end we can say “It Just Works”.

— Work With Us —

While we don’t want to burst your bubble, working at enfore is not necessarily for everyone.

When working at enfore it is critical to understand: that how to get a result is as important as the result itself. It is about what’s right for our platform and requirements, and not about the theoretically best answer. Being able to adapt and to change, based on lessons learned along the way, is essential.

We take pride in trying to getting things right the first time – even when we know that there might be follow-up iterations based on new insights and requirements.

Making what is already great a little bit better, step by step, is not always fun, but necessary for our objective. It takes incredible dedication, discipline and collaboration to get the job done right and take it to the next level – each and every day.

At enfore, we focus on what really matters to execute our strategy and achieve our objective.

So, if you are ready to pour your expertise, passion and persistence into the best possible solution, get in touch and share your skills with 200 million+ businesses around the globe.

Our Core Principles

1
Determination

Bold, ambitious and patiently impatient, we pursue our objectives with determination - and plenty of team spirit.

2
Respect the Basics

Our work ethics are clear and simple. We are disciplined, focused, dependable and reliable. Every day, as long as it takes.

3
Dedication

Sustained focus takes dedication. We start every day with a profound, performance-driven passion for the project.

4
Making sense

We are concise, consistent and uncompromising – in search of the best solutions for our objective; no politics, no non-sense, no hidden agenda.

5
Accountability

We own our work and diligently review our work – we are responsible for the result. Because our work is a reflection of everything we do.

6
Transparency

Honest, open and direct, we rely on transparent reviews. There is no tolerance for withholding information or silent compromises.

Current Openings

We take great care in hiring new enfore’lers. That’s why our hiring process may differ from what you have experienced in other companies. When you’re interested in a position in our engineering team, we will test your programming skills. We want to know if you are just applying a programming language or a framework or if you have really understood the underlying concepts and principles. Are you interested in a position outside of the engineering team, we like to assess your skills with an appropriate exercise, too (e.g. a presentation or another sort of work example).
During the in-person interviews, you will have the chance to meet your potential new colleagues from different roles across the company. And you will also experience the great working environment in our offices in Berlin or Hamburg.
