Career & Jobs


With more than 2.5 million users, empower® is the most used software suite for Microsoft Office.


We combine the spirit of creative startups with the advantages of large companies

Who are we?

empower GmbH is a strongly growing company. As the leading provider of Microsoft Office solutions, we offer attractive career options with the opportunity for fast advancement. In addition, we encourage the continual development of all our employees through courses, training sessions, and additional qualifications.

What do we do?

Microsoft Office is standard software in companies worldwide. Every day hundreds of millions of people use Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook – even though they’ve never learned how to use those programs properly. They lose a lot of time, document quality falls far below what it should be, and most people just don’t like to use those programs. Working in MS Office is rarely the reason someone chooses a profession – it’s just a tool they use to do their job.

We at empower® know Office like the back of our hand. We’ve spent years, day and night, learning the Office apps’ strengths and weaknesses. We love Office. But out of the box it’s not ideal for every user or situation. After all, Office is designed for a broad variety of users, so one size doesn’t fit all. Companies have different requirements than independent authors. Global teams need different tools than private users. Corporate design teams face formatting and brand discipline challenges. Office’s complicated functionality can compete against clarity and relevance.

That's why we started to revolutionize daily life with MS Office in 2005. We develop solutions that enable people worldwide to work with Office more easily, consistently, and efficiently. Our mission is to help users get the best results quickly so they have time to focus on their professions.
