We are an international technology group and traditional family-owned company, with over 11,000 employees in 32 countries.
Creating Confidence is our path to success; and it could soon be yours, too.

We are convinced, that central banks across the world will introduce a so-called Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) like the digital Euro within the next five years.
This will create a whole ecosystem of products and services that fit perfectly with Giesecke+Devrient's existing product portfolio.
The CBDC ecosystem ranges from banking applications to mobile apps and down to small embedded devices.
The solutions involved in such an ecosystem will deal with terabytes of data, high availability, high performance, high security and millions of customers.
Our mission is to create and grow a new set of products and solutions that will enable all participants to benefit from the upcoming e-Money revolution.

  • Write, format, edit, review, and proof procedural and technical information for technical and nontechnical users.
  • Publish and maintain templates for written documentation produced by others (technical specifications, RFP responses, etc.), ensuring a consistent "look and feel."
  • Establish team policies and procedures, conforming to existing styles, policies, and procedures.
  • Assist in planning, scheduling, and tracking documentation work to meet product release dates and client deliverables.
  • Gather customer feedback on documentation to improve usability.
  • Research and continuously improve the mediums and techniques to write compelling and satisfying documentation and training materials.


About You:

  • Excellent writing and proofreading skills.
  • Ability to write clearly and succinctly for multiple audiences using either formal or more casual tones.
  • Desire and ability to setup documentation and training material strategies, policies and processes.
  • Strong experience owning an end-to-end documentation creation and maintenance process.

  • Experience creating infographics such as diagrams, screenshots, workflows, graphs, etc.



  • You will play a driving role in shaping our CBDC solution, thereby having the potential to revolutionize the future of payments
  • You will have the opportunity to gain deep knowledge in the cutting edge area of central bank digital currencies
  • You will enjoy large autonomy in deciding what topics you would like to focus on and how much responsibility you would like to own
  • You will be empowered to achieve your maximum potential through a supportive environment that places trust in your abilities and celebrates your accomplishments
  • All that matters here are your work and the results - where, and when you work is flexible
