Who We Are

Open-Xchange

Founded in 2005 by Rafael Laguna, Frank Hoberg and Martin Kauss in Olpe and Nuremberg, Open-Xchange started to build highly scalable Software-as-a-Service email and collaboration products. Today, 14 years later, Open-Xchange has more than 270 employees in fourteen offices around the globe. Trend: upwards!

Our Vision

Since Open-Xchange was founded, the philosophy driving the company has been clear:

A borderless internet that is open, safe and free.

Based on this approach, we continue to evolve products and services with a proven record in agile software development.

Our Mission

Create competitive products that allow providers to deliver secure internet services with a great user experience that respect privacy and generate superior margins.

Create open platforms that users prefer over the monopolistic platforms that concentrate power and lock them in.

We believe that diversity is one of the keys to our success, which is why we have united people from all over the world to work together and achieve great things. Our people come from different places, from different walks of life, but we all share a common goal: to make a difference.

Because we have offices around the globe, you can join interesting, talented people practically anywhere the world.

How we work

Personal

We believe in people. We can’t say that enough. Our products are only as good as the people who develop them and bring them to market. Without our employees, we would not be who we are. That’s why we focus on human beings and invest in the very spot where our heart beats.

Passionate

Our passion motivates us. Whatever we do here at Open-Xchange, we do it with fun and conviction. We work hard, we have fun, and we get up every morning committed to making the (online) world a bit better for our children and our grandchildren.

Innovative

We are all about the moonshot. We constantly wonder what we can do better, what other paths we can follow and what each one of us can contribute to achieve breakthrough results. So go ahead, shoot for the moon. We dare you!
