PRISMA will be one of the main exhibitors at the job fair we’re organizing on October 17, 2023, at Leipzig’s WERK 2. In this article, we’ll explore what PRISMA is all about, what their work culture is like, and how you can increase your chances of landing a job with them in Leipzig.
Meet PRISMA, a major player in Europe’s energy sector
PRISMA is a leading gas trade and management platform that aims to help revolutionize the energy sector by promoting positive, sustainable change. They’re passionate both about “securing Europe’s energy supply” and driving “digital innovation.” Their vision is to create a future where all energy markets are connected and integrated, ultimately catalyzing the world’s transition to green energy.
This is precisely one of the aspects setting PRISMA apart from other companies in the gas sector: As the world increasingly focuses on reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change, PRISMA plays a crucial role in facilitating the transition to cleaner energy sources.
By connecting energy markets and promoting renewable energy solutions through infrastructural coordination and digitalization, they’re actively contributing to a more sustainable future.
Centered around understanding, unity, diversity and both driving and embracing change in the industry, PRISMA’s core company values have been key to high employee retention. These values directly shape the way they approach their daily work, business, stakeholders and the community at large. Powered by an international team working in unison in Leipzig, PRISMA strives to achieve its goals through innovation and collaboration.
Energy at work: The company culture at PRISMA
PRISMA’s company culture is based on the belief that true innovation stems from collective effort. Its staff is composed of smart and dedicated professionals who bring diverse perspectives and skill sets to the table. This diversity enables them to serve their users and markets effectively, working towards the common vision of a fair, sustainable energy market.
In choosing new candidates to join their team, PRISMA seeks individuals who embody the company’s core values. While technical skills are essential, they place equal emphasis on qualities like enthusiasm, passion and commitment to both the team and the company’s mission. Demonstrating professionalism, courtesy and a sense of humor, especially under pressure, is highly valued.
PRISMA looks beyond traditional qualifications when considering potential candidates. They prioritize a person’s attitude and capabilities over their formal education or prior experience.
This approach fosters a diverse workforce with unique perspectives and backgrounds, creating a vibrant and dynamic work environment.
Work-life balance is another major aspect of PRISMA’s company culture. They understand the importance of professional development and encourage every team member to pursue growth opportunities tailored to their interests and aspirations. The company supports employees’ personal lives by offering flexible arrangements and with the understanding that productivity is driven by a sense of fulfillment and well-being.
A word from PRISMA’s staff
At PRISMA, getting things done is more important than rigid rules. The company’s approach to work allows employees to manage their private circumstances while ensuring that the team’s collective objectives are met successfully. While PRISMA has a strong company culture and shared values, each team within the organization also has its own take and style. Let’s hear from some of the team leads about their experiences:
Jan Wagebach, Chief Technology Officer
“Good leadership to me means sharing power, putting the needs of others first and helping them develop and perform.”
Tom Köckeritz, Head of Customer Success
“To deliver success to our customers every single day, you need to trust your team in what they do, be approachable and be ready to help out at any time.”
Victoria Schuster, Head of People & Culture
“[Important to us is] caring for our people, supporting their development and growth and creating an environment where collaboration is effortless, inclusive and fun.”
Falk Porzig, Head of Legal & Compliance
“I believe that honest feedback, sharing knowledge, and challenging yourself are key for individual and professional development, as well as for high-quality team results. Having a good laugh together and not taking yourself too seriously also helps.”
René Lindner, Head of Product & UX
“While many professions require a T-shaped employee profile, we are looking more for an 8-legged creature. It’s something leadership coach Petra Wille once called an ‘octopus-shaped’ product manager.”
