Road Freight Heroes – strong together
Our team of employees is what makes us stand out from the crowd: Together, we dare to discover new ideas and promote innovation. TIMOCOM is a reliable employer that gives you the power to implement your ideas. We provide targeted professional development opportunities that take you to the next level. In our work environment, we encourage feedback and understand that mistakes are an opportunity to improve together. We TIMOs are diverse, with a range of personalities, cultural backgrounds and resumes, creating a colourful mix of perspectives and opinions, each well respected and integrated into our team.
Flexible hours, flextime, hybrid working, or up to 100 percent remote: depending on your position at TIMOCOM, we allow you to adjust your workday to suit your life. Our clocking system is accurate to the minute, providing a great work-life balance. You want to work remotely? No problem, we will ensure that you still feel like part of the team.
Relocate your home office to a place with guaranteed sea breezes or mountain air: With us, you can work from abroad worldwide for up to 120 days a year. So you can extend your vacation or visit family and friends far away. Mental health and a good work-life balance are important to us. For this reason, work and vacation are not opposites at TIMOCOM - we combine both. During your workation you are automatically covered by travel insurance, because your health is important to us!
In addition to flexible working hours, we are committed to making sure that you are able to meet both work and family obligations. Our parent-child offices feature a desk, a ball pit, and an area specifically designed for small children, allowing kids to play safely while you work. We also have a nursery: our company owners, the Thiermann family, set up a nursery to make finding childcare easier for employees.
Professional development opportunities
We support our employees and are committed to providing opportunities for both personal and professional development, regardless of which department they work in. We offer individual coaching sessions, seminars of varying lengths and even full on courses of study: our comprehensive professional development catalogue has plenty of options for you to explore. In addition to individual professional development options, we also learn as a community: we engage in social learning when we talk to one another, observe one another and work together to master challenges.
Flexible professional development tailored to your needs
Our goal is to keep getting better and better. That’s why #keepgrowing is one of our company values. In addition to dealing with errors openly and honestly, and our TIMOs’ commitment to accountability, we believe that making time for growth is an essential component of this value: as a TIMOCOM employee, you will have access to four hours each month to invest in your professional or personal development at a time that works for you; if your manager approves, you can even add more hours to the initial four.
Our internal eLearning platform
Over 20,000 professional development options on a single platform – exclusively available to TIMOs. You can create your own personal development playlist from this extensive offer, and even share it with your co-workers. You can also expand your own knowledge base by adding links to relevant articles or videos. Development plans with specific professional development programs make it easy for you to plan your professional development schedule.
Our leadership development program
We support our managers individually according to their needs, with a structured, strategic approach: after an analysis, we discuss strengths and areas where there is room for growth, and then work together to set new goals. The result is a development plan with custom options such as seminars, coaching, workshops or on-the-job training. Regular follow-up meetings ensure that your success is both guaranteed and sustainable. Our leadership staff are always learning from one another, and mentoring partnerships allow experienced managers to pass on their expertise.
Our company podcast
We learn together – in addition to uGROW and lernOS, everyone is invited to contribute to our company podcast. The TIMO-Cast discusses a variety of subjects, allowing all TIMOs the opportunity to learn more about areas of expertise within the company, gain new insights, or actively share their knowledge in the form of interviews. A new episode is released each month – by and for TIMOs, with subjects including agility, innovation, market developments and Logistics 4.0.
Success Storys of our TIMOs
"Through detours I found my way to TIMOCOM. I started my career as a customer care employee in Italy, although this position had little to do with my previous job as an optician. Nevertheless, the position was fully in line with my skills. Already during the interview, my strengths were recognized and appreciated by the recruiters. The open and friendly nature of the employees from different countries and cultures surprised me positively and awakened the desire to also become a TIMO.
So I started my new professional challenge in 2017. Thanks to a detailed induction, I quickly found my way around my new tasks. Intensive internal training on logistics and processes in freight forwarding companies as well as telephone coaching helped me to look after customers professionally, as customer satisfaction is a high priority at TIMOCOM. A personal highlight during this exciting phase was my participation in the Transport and Logistics Fair in Munich. There I had the opportunity to personally meet the customers I was supporting on the phone every day and to deepen professional relationships. On the spot, my sales talent was discovered, which opened more and more doors for me to become an account manager. Since June 2018, I have now been working as an Account Manager, helping prospects and customers overcome logistics challenges and simplify processes around logistics using our Smart Logistics System.
TIMOCOM has not only contributed to my professional development, but has also brought about a positive personal change in me."
Francesco , Account Manager
"In 2012, I started my career as an event manager at TIMOCOM, at that time with significantly fewer employees*. In this role, I was responsible for planning and implementing trade fair appearances in Germany and abroad. I also organized company parties, which I particularly enjoyed. As I wanted to develop further, I took on various marketing projects for two years.
During my time at TIMOCOM, I completed my marketing degree on the side and with the support of TIMOCOM, in order to expand my practical knowledge and build up theoretical knowledge at the same time. In the course of time, I concentrated on product projects where the focus was on continuous marketing. In this context, I was allowed to build up a new product marketing team, consisting of three employees, whom I was able to recruit internally and externally for the team. At the same time, I had the opportunity to participate in a Google marketing training course with the support of TIMOCOM.
After the birth of my daughter, I returned to a team leader position in 2022 and took on a new exciting task: building the Field Marketing team, which I really enjoy. My entire development at TIMOCOM was supported by the marketing directors, the management Tim and Sebastian, and my wonderful colleagues.
This way, I have always been able to learn new things along the way, develop myself further, take new steps and grow: all of this motivates me a lot.
TIMOCOM has always supported me in my curiosity and my greed for further education! And that's why I've been with TIMOCOM for so long, 11 years now - madness in the positive sense! Thank you for this great development and support!"
Vanessa, Team Lead Field Marketing
"I started my professional career at TIMOCOM in 2019, having previously worked in the freight forwarding industry while studying logistics and supply chain management. During my studies, I became aware of a vacancy in Account Management at TIMOCOM and decided to apply. This is how I started my career as an Account Manager in Sales for the Southern Germany region.
The foundation for my further development was laid by my Team Lead. They motivated me on my personal path to go deeper into strategic business and also to think outside the box. In this way, I was able to develop over time, first to Corporate Development Manager and then to Account Executive for Real-Time Visibility solutions.
Over the course of the last few years, my extensive practical experience, in-depth market and competitive knowledge, and profound knowledge of TIMOCOM's products have enabled me to make continuous progress and advance my career internally. These aspects have enabled me to continuously improve and succeed in my professional career.
Today I am happy in the department KAM with my position as Account Executive for Visibility Solutions."
Kubilay - Account Executive
"After my school career, I completed an apprenticeship in information technology and a part-time bachelor's degree in business psychology. Since I come from Erkrath, I directly witnessed the construction of the TiComplex. Thereupon I became curious about the company behind it and after a few clicks on the website I applied at TIMOCOM. On 01.07.2013, I started as an information technology clerk in the IT Infrastructure & Services department.
After an exciting 4 years, a new position as Corporate Development Manager was waiting for me. Since 01.07.2021 I have been working as Strategic Project Manager in the Business Unit Sales. Here I act as a link to other departments and also as a mouthpiece to my own business unit. I manage, supervise and communicate various projects and optimize our reporting structure and KPIs, among other things, in cooperation with Controlling and IT.
In the last 9 years, I have developed internally at TIMOCOM and learned a lot."
Maximilian - Strategic Project Manager
Health & financial benefits
A 13th monthly salary is just the beginning: we plan for tomorrow today, which means we support you by topping up your monthly company retirement benefit payments. We also offer a variety of other attractive programs, such as contributing to nursery costs for young children, your at-home internet bill, and providing prepaid gift certificates.
We are committed to saving the environment, so we offer you the option of leasing an electric or regular bicycle. Cycling isn’t for you? In that case, we’ll be happy to offer you access to a discounted Deutschland-Ticket. If you drive to work, then we have a transport allowance for you. Plus, there are plenty of free parking spaces available at our offices.
We want you to be happy and healthy. So we offer a variety of health initiatives and after-work events, such as a personalised stress check, courses for maintaining a healthy back, or running meet-ups – there really is something for everyone.
Team & work culture
For us, work is all about cooperation and respecting each other as equals. As a family-run company, we are always working to create an environment in which every employee is happy to come to work, has a sense of well-being and can work on personal development. That means everything from small benefits, like no dress codes, to larger opportunities, such as customised professional development options and more.
TIMOCOM BarCamp, Oktoberfest, Carnival or the yearly summer party – we celebrate company success in a relaxed atmosphere.
We are team players, because we know what a team can achieve. We look out for each other and enjoy the flexibility and freedom on offer. Every single TIMO is a valuable member of our team.
We celebrate our successes together
New Ways of Working
Our multispaces are based on the idea that one-size-fits-all solutions cannot possibly fulfil our need for silent, concentrated, creative or collaborative environments. That’s why our offices are neither open-plan nor closed off; instead, they allow our employees to choose the best space for their current task. These rooms are available to everyone, with an efficient desk sharing model.
A selection of fresh, regional and sustainable meals, relaxed meal times with co-workers, a comfortable atmosphere and an inviting rooftop terrace – just another ordinary lunch break in at TIMOCOM. It goes without saying that we bear some of the cost, so you can have a cheap and healthy meal.
Want to test your team spirit? Our foosball and billiard tables are here to help. There’s even a regular foosball tournament for TIMOs who want to show off their skills. And if that sounds too exciting, you can always just hang out and relax in the ball pit.
What our TIMOs say
“There is no better option when it comes to professional development. Any time you want, you can explore other departments or change jobs without having to leave the company. At TIMOCOM, I’m treated like a person, not just a number.”
