Careers at HiveMQ

Data Movement for a Connected World

Who we are

HiveMQ helps customers harness the power of their IoT data to deliver new business outcomes. We ensure predictable data movement so companies can gain the data insights needed to create new products, find new efficiencies through automation, and scale their business within the extreme demands of a real-time communications environment. We also support a thriving open-source MQTT ecosystem to lay a future-proof foundation for IoT data.
Our flagship product is HiveMQ, an MQTT broker that empowers innovative companies by creating a central nervous system between things, machines, and humans.
Headquartered in the beautiful medieval city of Landshut, Germany, HiveMQ has grown into a global, remote-first company. The last time we counted, we spoke 32 languages within HiveMQ. Join us as we work to contribute to the fast-moving development of the IoT ecosystem and help companies enable mission-critical use cases like connected cars, logistics, Industry 4.0 and connected IoT products.

Why HiveMQ?

Competitive salary
Every offer we make is based on market data. Our People & Culture team is also making sure all our colleagues are paid competitively on the market.
HiveMQ was set up as a remote-first company, and we believe this is the work model that fits us best and allows us to combine work and personal life.
Flex time
We work across different time zones and prioritise a-synchronised collaboration. Making time for our personal life makes us happier in our work life.
Mobile first, but can also work from HQ
At HiveMQ, we prioritise a mobile-first approach, but we also have the option of meeting and working in our office in Landshut, Germany.
Home workstation
Working from home doesn't mean we should squint at a small screen or set the laptop higher on books. We'll make sure you have a proper workstation at home.
Personal and professional development
We are a growing company, and we want all our colleagues to grow together with the company, so development is an important part of HiveMQ: e.g. regular feedback and individual Growth Plans to foster your growth.
Learning budget
We believe you know better how you prefer to learn and what you need to grow, so you have the possibility to discuss external growth opportunities (e.g. purchasing books, coaching sessions or e-trainings) with your manager
Multicultural and diverse teams
As a remote-first company, we hire the best people for the role. This means that we have colleagues across various countries and with different backgrounds.
Godchild program in India
Every HiveMQer becomes a godparent to a child in India. As a company, we want to provide help and support for education and basic care to those who are not as lucky as we are.
Referral bonus
Our colleagues are our biggest ambassadors, and we show our appreciation. This also applies to referring candidates for our open positions.
Regular virtual events
Bonding with teammates looks a bit different in a remote-first company. We try something new and fun together virtually: mixing cocktails, cooking, magic, well-being and much more.
Yearly company off-site
As a remote-first team, it is important that we also get the chance to meet in person and get to know each other. That is why, every year, we gather the entire team in a company retreat.
Innovative technologies
We want to provide the best solution to our customers, and therefore, it is important that we also have innovative technology and the best tools across business functions.
Branded swag
Feeling part of the team starts with a great welcome. We have carefully created a welcome package for you with HiveMQ swag for you and your home office.
Country specific benefits
We are a Global company and in each country there are different rules and different needs. So we also have country specific benefits in addition to the Global ones.

The recruitment process

The process can vary depending on the role, but the main structure of the recruitment process in HiveMQ includes the following steps:

Life at HiveMQ

HiveMQ is a remote-first company with teammates from around the world. Each month we have virtual company events to have fun and meet colleagues in a relaxed environment. Once a year, we all meet at a company-wide event where we look at the past year's major events and the plans for next year. And, of course, we have lots of fun together.
