Our 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. We have a bold vision: In the future every small business should enjoy similar efficiencies and scale-effects that historically were only available to large enterprises. "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!" - Marco Boerries, Founder & CEO

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”. 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.
