Aroundhome is a recommendation platform for houseowners. With a comprehensive range of information and services relating to their own home and a team of 300 specialists, Aroundhome supports houseowners who live in their own property in carrying out major investment projects relating to their own home - from selling and investing to maintaining and repairing their property.
In addition, Aroundhome provides smart service tools such as checklists, calculators and high-quality content, which offer users recommendations for suitable and future-proof solutions.
Your property is more than just a house. It is home and life project. Every change brings insecurities. Because every decision can be a wrong one - and expensive. We make it possible to make better decisions with good recommendations and to realize all large projects around the own home more stress-free. With orientation, individual advice and the mediation of suitable partners for all-round successful projects.
Aroundhome – Because it's your home.
My goal is to position Aroundhome in such a way that our actions and all our decisions are aligned with our customers and their needs at all times. It’s important to me that we build on our existing strengths and actively develop our team and organization. At the same time, I’d like to promote a culture in which, alongside customer orientation, transparency and personal responsibility are lived out every single day. At the end of the day, it’s the people working there who make the difference between a merely good and a sensational company. “You’re only as good as the people you hire” – that’s my firm conviction.

As CFO, I see myself as a strategic business partner to the operational management team with a focus on growth, employee development, and entrepreneurship.

I see my task as a manager to build up and develop high-performance and successful commercial and operational teams.

A high degree of personal responsibility and a constructive culture of making mistakes are particularly important to me, so that we learn something new every day.

Aroundhome is dynamic. Aroundhome is challenging. Aroundhome is never boring. Our market turns and changes quickly, so we in Category Management have our finger on the pulse.
I've been with the company for three years now and I'm still learning every day, even in my role. I have room to develop and get the support I need. The team is cool, working together is fun and a good work-life balance is ensured - I know that differently from consulting. 😉 What more could you ask for?
I’ve been working for Aroundhome for almost 10 years, and that probably speaks for itself. I still feel as happy and at ease as I did the first day. In the end, it’s more than just an employer for me, because here I feel that I’m an important part of the whole. I work every day with people who I count as friends or even family. Definitely a perfect match for me. <3
At Aroundhome, team spirit and personal responsibility are particularly important.
In this environment, I don’t just have the chance to develop professionally and personally from day to day – I’m also constantly growing by rising to new challenges and can work on exciting projects.
If you imagine a place where there’s something suitable for everyone, everyone’s working together to achieve the same goal, where support isn’t just an empty word, but something lived out in everyday life, where I can be myself and at the same time a valuable part of the group, where passion and fun add spice to what we do, then that sounds and tastes like Aroundhome.
What moves me is the warmth, reliability, and helpfulness of the staff at Aroundhome.
I’ve really found my feet here and always have opportunities to develop, learn, and grow. I’m now running the People & Culture department where I work every day with a lot of passion and heart to ensure that our best employees are in the right place. This is the key to our success.
