What is OFFIS e.V. - Institute for Information Technology?

Miracle AR/VR Lab (R&D Division Society)

OFFIS is a 1991-founded, internationally active Research and Development Institute for information technology based in Oldenburg, Lower-Saxony. In an average of 70 ongoing projects OFFIS, with its over 250 employees, carries out research and prototypical development work on the highest international level in the areas of energy, society, health and manufacturing. OFFIS cooperates with more than 700 business and scientific partners worldwide.


OFFIS is the leading research and development institute in Lower Saxony in the field of computer science. We are oriented towards people, their needs and the necessity of preserving the environment. Our research always follows ethical principles and the standards of good scientific practice. Research for and on weapons has no place in OFFIS. OFFIS stands for innovation in action. "We think ahead" is more than a slogan for us!

Work Culture

We are aware of and embrace the scope and responsibility of our research. We seek to solve the challenges of an interconnected world in a fact-based manner and in peaceful, international, democratic cooperation. All employees are committed to ensuring that people are not disadvantaged or defamed because of their skin color, origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation or impairments. We explicitly promote equal rights and inclusion for all people.


Teamwork is the core of our daily work! Therefore, our appreciative and at the same time professional interaction with each other is characterized by respect, openness and commitment. We regularly exchange ideas in different formats. We attach great importance to the transparency of our work and its results!

Further Education

The very principle of research is closely linked to curiosity. To this end, we must always be open to new things and learn more. For this reason, we support the continuing education of our colleagues. Offers run throughout the year as part of our personnel development measures. This also includes certifications such as the IPMA project management certifications or the iSAQB certification.


Benefits are always a good thing, right? ;-) The health of our colleagues is for example an important aspect for us. Here we support you within the framework of our company health management. And our company physician is the contact person for all matters relating to medical occupational safety.


Oldenburg is not only a great location for our institute - the city can also be for you personally and of course for your family! Why? We like to quote the city's Welcome Center here: Oldenburg is family-friendly, green, diverse, a bicycle city, tradition-conscious, yet dynamic.
Before we go on raving about Oldenburg - feel free to make up your own mind. We are happy to help, or the Oldenburg Welcome Center.
