With rapid growth plans underway across Europe, we have German offices in Frankfurt and Berlin, and a third opening in Munich this year.

We are actively recruiting a team of professional, driven experts to join Linesight and help us deliver outstanding projects for our clients.

  • Actively participate in the tender/bid process--from initial tender/bid documentation through analysis and reporting

We would love to hear from you if you:

Our approach to DE&I

At Linesight, we believe that our success is tied to the success of our employees, and we are committed to creating a workplace that is fair, equitable, and inclusive for everyone. We understand that creating an environment where all employees have an equal opportunity to thrive requires a concerted effort across every stage of their time with us, from hiring and onboarding to promotion, career growth, and development.

As part of this commitment, we have implemented a range of policies and initiatives to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). This starts with our attraction pipeline and accessible job descriptions, designed to attract a broad range of candidates, and continuing throughout the employee life cycle with DE&I checks built in at every stage. Fairness, consistency, and transparency are the core principles for all our hiring, salary increase, and promotion decisions with built-in gender pay gap checks. Employee and family-friendly policies also enhance inclusion and equity in our teams.
