In addition to annual employee appraisal interviews, in which measures for development, qualification and advancement are defined, a comprehensive onboarding programme is one of the key elements of our employee development.

Find your feet quickly at our company and in your motivated team.
Changes in your private and professional environment can lead to challenges in compatibility with existing models of work. In such situations, we offer our employees the best possible support. That’s why our employees can actively arrange their working hours with our flexitime account, in addition to 30 days of annual leave. As long as the general conditions permit, we also arrange individual working hours models that adapt to your situation – be it through parental leave for mothers and fathers or a flexible regulation for working from home. Because a healthy balance between one’s work and private life is also important to us.
For a stress-free start to your working day we provide you with discounted tickets for public transport or a leased company car. In addition to Christmas and summer parties at our respective locations, we also organise regular team events.
The services mentioned may vary depending on the location. Please contact us at any time for further information. We would be happy to discuss individual solutions with you in a personal meeting.

msg life offers a wide range of challenges, and the people who work at msg life are equally diverse. We would like to invite you to take a look behind the scenes and find out what our employees have to say ...
‘What I like best about msg life is that here the team is not just a word, but people really think as a team – we all work towards concrete goals and all pull in the same direction in order to deliver great results for the customer and the company. In my day-to-day work I also get frequent acknowledgement of what I do from my colleagues and managers and I’m happy to reciprocate with that. Flexible working hours mean I can combine private life and business life very well.’
skill manager for Business Processes
‘I enjoy working at msg life: there are always exciting challenges here; I can shape things here too and can work autonomously within a broader context. I appreciate how helpful the colleagues are and how everyone pulls together. As a skill manager I am responsible for deploying my team to meet the goals of the project and my staff and I have personnel responsibility. The individual support I get gives me the feeling that my everyday work at msg life is appreciated.’
‘Thanks to the extensive introductory phase, a really good onboarding programme and the many development opportunities in the company I am now part of the msg life family; I am responsible for managing a customer test project and also keep up with my professional training. At msg life I have the chance to develop a broad knowledge base on the insurance industry. Because I work closely with our customers as a project manager I am always gaining fascinating insights into different insurance companies.’
‘As a student temp in the Migration team I am involved in the design, execution and comparison of test cases for software development. I have to do with a lot of figures, tables and formulae and can put my experience from my studies to use in concrete practical cases. The flat hierarchies mean they take me seriously here, even as a student temp, and I can feel that my managers trust me. My suggestions and ideas are noted and discussed in an atmosphere that is defined by teamwork.’
‘Two things were particularly important for me when I was choosing which company to work for: direct customer contact and flexible working hours. At msg life I got both of those. There are no fixed working hours; everyone works how it suits them best. For me that is definitely a sign that the company really trusts its employees and their capabilities. Whether full-time or part-time, in the office or from home – teamwork across different offices works very well in this flexible model. That is what I call really modern.’
‘As a programme manager I am in contact with many different colleagues every day. So it’s vital for me that we get on well with one another. At msg life I experience every day how collegiality and the opportunity to contribute ideas create a good working atmosphere. Thanks to a modern system of working hours I am also very flexible about how I organise where and when I work. Another bonus for me is that msg life offers me many opportunities for personal development in different areas.’
‘As a project manager for insurance software for ten years now I have many responsibilities every day, specifically in international projects. I am the first point of contact for our clients and for my project team; I tackle new challenges every day, from risk management and controlling to drawing up rosters for the staff involved. I have a great team and space for my own ideas and prospects. I can organise my area of responsibility flexibly and thus combine my work perfectly with my family life.’
‘Getting work experience during my studies – at msg life I can do that as a student temp. To start with I had a proper onboarding programme and since then I have supported the team with whatever crops up from day to day, which gives me great insights into their everyday work. They are open for new ideas and I have the space to take an independent approach and can learn to take responsibility for my work. I can certainly imagine working here later and becoming part of this motivated and dedicated company.’
‘I like working at msg life, because my job suits me perfectly: I’m interested in actuarial science and also like programming at the same time. At msg life I can combine the two: for my work in Project Service it’s not enough to be an actuary or a programmer; here I can combine the two roles in hands-on client projects. In addition, msg life supports my training to become a certified actuary, which opens up additional opportunities for me.’
Junior business consultant
‘At msg life I can really hit the ground running as a junior consultant. Working on different projects and answering customer enquiries always brings up a wealth of fascinating new topics. Lately, I have focused on analysing new questions as well as the design and development of drafts and specifications. Discussing relevant issues with my colleagues, we keep finding new approaches for solving a problem. Teamwork is vital at msg life and with regular feedback from my managers I can develop my individual career prospects.’
Jacqueline Op de Hipt
‘Before a product can be delivered to the customer it has to be thoroughly tested to eliminate any errors beforehand and to ensure it functions perfectly. That calls for all the teams involved to work together closely. There is a pleasant working atmosphere at msg life. We treat each other as equals and all pull in the same direction. That not only enables us to deliver a good product to our customers, but means we have fun at work too and can keep developing together.’
‘Every day is different at msg life. As a project manager, my responsibility lies in the frictionless realisation of of my projects. The requirements are not always completely predictable in project planning and can change over the course of the project. So at the start of the day I don’t always know exactly what’s going to come up and have to respond flexibly with my team to new challenges. As my employer, msg life gives me the freedom I need to do that and supports my work with individual development opportunities. Tackling exciting new tasks every day is what I like most about my job.’
Business consultant for Business Processes
‘Although I’ve only been part of msg life for a few months I can already say that I feel right at home here! The introductory programme is well structured and every department has received me with open arms and an open mind for my questions. Everyone is on first-name terms and is very keen to help each other. I couldn’t have wished for a better start. Now I’m interested to see how my career here advances, because as a young person msg life offers me a wide range of personal and professional development opportunities.’
‘Because I had been working here as a student temp I took the opportunity to start my professional life here at msg life directly after graduation. Ever since my time as a student, I have been working with a company that supports me in every respect and rewards me and my performance. From day one I was able to take on plenty of responsibility and was appreciated as a person, supported and fully integrated into the team.’
Project assistant to the management
‘My project work brings me into contact with various colleagues and departments at the company’s various offices. Good communications, understanding for one another and a healthy feedback culture are vital for me, whether with managers or colleagues. At msg life I experience exactly that on a daily basis! As well as the collegial atmosphere I appreciate the excellent work-life balance. And the flexible working hours mean I can take my free time when I need it.’
skill manager for Mathematics
‘What I particularly appreciate about my job is the varied national and international project work. I am responsible for a wide range of challenging tasks, from actuarial consulting in insurance processes, specification and design through to implementation and mathematical testing. For me it’s all about the mix: I have plenty of space to work autonomously and independently and at the same time I cooperate a lot with my team and our customers.’
‘As a programme manager I am responsible for the technical and organisational control of a number of concurrent projects as well as their profitability. I am in close contact with our clients in regard of the full scope of all current project issues. I like to take advantage of the freedom of action and design that is granted to me. My area of responsibility is very diversified, I make use of flexible working hours and work on different premises. I enjoy working with msg life because in working together we help each other and value fair play. This is important for me as well.’
‘As a senior software engineer I am entrusted with varied projects. The company gives me plenty of room to take on responsibility: in implementing customer requirements, supporting the functional advisers with the technical concepts or coordinating development work. The supportive company culture makes it easier for me to coach the project developers and encourages a really team-oriented working atmosphere. So I see msg life as a company that appreciates its staff, gives them opportunities for professional training and allows them to take on responsibility quickly.’
Application Developer and Software Engineer
’25 years at msg life speak for themselves. During this time I have particularly come to appreciate the varied range of tasks and the excellent teamwork. I can contribute to various different topics and find tasks that I can identify with. As an application developer and software engineer I analyse what our clients require of our software and take care of customisation design and implementation. In addition, I frequently take on functional advisory roles in various client projects.’
‘Mutual support among colleagues and staff development have a very high priority at msg life. As a specialist adviser for insurance technology I am involved on a daily basis with the analysis of faults and deviations, with implementing new functionalities and with testing. It is very helpful that I was able to expand my programming knowledge and complete a training course as an actuary, in order to make my contribution even more effective. An exciting and varied range of tasks and flexible working hours round off my job profile.’
‘For 20 years I have experienced diversity, responsibility, ongoing new projects and teams at msg life. As a specialist for insurance technology I not only work on mathematical brain-teasers, but also on the technical development of software solutions. My job gives me the opportunity to work on all the development phases of a project and to assume responsibility – from coordination with the client, conceptional work and coding through to system testing. As a commuter I find the flexible working hours very helpful. Thanks to the individual support from msg life I was also able to complete my actuarial training. And I enjoy making use of the sports on offer at the site.’
‘After more than ten years in the logistics and pharma industry I found a technical challenge that fits me perfectly. As a software developer for the core product msg.Life Factory I can apply both my IT experience and the knowledge I acquired during my studies, for instance in project-specific customization, development and tests. A flat hierarchy, modern working resources, supportive colleagues and a mentor providing tuition and advice, have all helped me to have a comfortable start at msg life.’
Software Developer / Project manager
‘As a software developer and project manager I have a wide variety of potential responsibilities, roles and development opportunities. I find it fascinating to work in international teams, to share our experience and so to move forwards together. At msg life we are always on the leading edge of the industry and are permanently refining our products – so there’s never any time to get bored.’
Software Developer / Sub-Project manager
‘For almost 20 years I have enjoyed the great working atmosphere and varied range of assignments at msg life. Here I can combine my family life and my career and continue my professional development. As a software developer and sub-project manager I work on the system and also alongside our clients. This entails the design and implementation of new functionalities, as well as consultation with internal and external departments. I like the high level of autonomy and the straightforward working atmosphere. And I am also involved in training new colleagues.’
‘For me, it’s important to have a job where I can make a difference and have space to keep developing. I get both of these at msg life. I am responsible for the different specifications of the software architecture and so can keep on developing in that area. At msg life I not only have exciting tasks, but also a friendly working atmosphere and a good work–life balance.’
Department manager / Skillmanager Software Development
‘As head of a department and skill manager I am responsible for assigning software developers to our projects. Something that motivates me particularly is that the company lets all employees play an active role in shaping the projects. I also really enjoy supporting my colleagues and deploying them so that they can continue to develop. Mistakes are allowed and creativity is desired. What counts is the result and not where and when people work. Working at msg life is great fun for me – modern infrastructure, fast laptop, big screens, the latest smartphone, working in motivated teams – what more do I need?’
Mathematician / Actuary
‘For me, working at msg life means: dealing with challenges at a high level. By that I mean the functional contents and also the technical implementation. My functional focus is on requirements management for insurance technology. I really enjoy working for a modern company with a good HR policy. Here I can contribute my own ideas and put them into practice, in connection with the design and execution of customer workshops, for instance, or the definition of new requirements.’
‘As an actuary and expert for insurance technology in mathematics I have to deal with varied and challenging topics and project work every day. My day-to-day work at msg life entails the analysis, design and implementation of customising requests for our core product, the Life Factory. Flexibility to determine my working hours is particularly important to me as a mother of two. My colleagues and managers are very understanding and that is part of the reason that I can take on responsible assignments.’
‘This is exactly how I imagined I would start my job! Day-to-day work in the insurance and financial services sector was familiar from my prior activities. But working at msg life is still very different: straightforward communications channels, a smart and personal environment, where people are always interested in new solutions, combined with attractive training opportunities and flexible working hours. That’s what I call an attractive, modern job, in which I see my own professional future. During the onboarding programme I also get to meet the new employees from the other offices, so the company enables me to build up a network really quickly.’
‘As my first employer, msg life enabled me to make the transition from my theoretical studies to professional work as a mathematician. The mathematical programming that is part of my daily work mostly takes place across all our offices. Thanks to flat hierarchies and close, straightforward working relationships, there are no difficulties at all in collaborating with colleagues in other offices.’
‘The most exciting thing about my work as a functional adviser is the combination of different working areas: from programming and costing insurance products through to dealing with functional requirements of a legal and financial nature. msg life offers me the perfect mix of exciting and varied tasks.’
