“Working at Flix means moving limits.”

Flix keeps the world moving and is looking for over 200 new colleagues worldwide who want to help shape further growth of the company. The tech scale-up founded in 2013 has developed into a global travel tech provider employing more than 3000 people worldwide from more than 90 nationalities. Flix has grown up, which is reflected in the newly developed employer brand positioning, a new brand manifesto, and a fresh look & feel now rolling out on the redesigned Flix career website (flix.careers) and other recruiting channels like LinkedIn.
Since 2013, the company has been shaping and revolutionizing the global travel market with the brands FlixBus and FlixTrain by enabling people to travel affordably and sustainably. Flix's development is characterized by steady growth and innovation: Flix is now represented in over 40 countries with local offices in more than 20 of them including Europe, the US, and South America. By modernizing the industry and driving sustainable pilot projects like electric buses and solar cell buses, Flix is proving that an entire industry can be transformed by the right entrepreneurial spirit and a motivated team.
Daniel Krauss, CIO Flix SE: "We are proud of our international team, which is pursuing a common goal: To be part of the travel revolution, pushing boundaries. We are proud to have included everything Flix stands for in our Employer Brand Manifesto: from our strong team culture and international work environment to our technical focus, sustainable goals and fearless attitude to consider mistakes as a by-product of success. We want to clearly demonstrate this mindset to the outside world with our employer brand. Our challenges drive us and we are excited about every new talent that becomes part of Flix just as we are committed to keeping our existing team motivated."
In the process of creating the new employer brand, a total of more than 3,000 people were surveyed internally and externally, and findings from more than ten focus groups were evaluated. Flix has also worked closely with the Munich-based creative agency Laut von Leise over the past eight months to develop and implement the design of the new employer brand. As a result, Flix's digital presence will be complemented by a new career website, which will feature a new look and feel, both functionally and visually:

Flix is pioneering the public transport sector by offering climate-friendly alternatives for convenient and affordable travel via the FlixBus and FlixTrain brands. Thanks to a unique business model and innovative technology, Flix has quickly established Europe’s largest long-distance bus network and swiftly moved on to a global expansion including the United States, Canada and Brazil. As a trailblazer for sustainable traffic Flix operated the first green long-distance trains in 2018, initiated a pilot project for all-electric long-distance buses in 2018 and launched EU’s first biogas-powered long-distance buses in 2021.
While Flix handles technology development, network planning, operations control, marketing and sales, quality management and continuous product expansion, trusted Flix-partners maintain the daily route operations. The unique combination of technology start-up, e-commerce platform and classic transport company has positioned Flix as a leader against major international corporations, permanently changing the global mobility landscape.
