Digitalizing Germany. Together.

Two employees in front of a whiteboard

Our mission

We create digital applications for the state that put the needs of citizens, business and society at the heart of it all and which work better for everyone, despite the complexity of the systems behind them.

Agile. Flexible. Dynamic: Our culture is that of a start-up. A GmbH owned by the federation, DigitalService is a 100% subsidiary of the federal government. This means that we do not work for profit, but for a good cause: towards a digital Germany.

What we do

We develop digital products that facilitate interaction between citizens and the public administration while promoting trust and confidence. To this end, we bring together interdisciplinary teams with expertise in software development, design and product management with the federal public administration.

Our starting point is the problem, from which point we think holistically to develop the best possible solution with an iterative approach. Together with our fellowship programs Tech4Germany and Work4Germany, we support the needed change in working methods and culture.

Corporate party

Through close cooperation with the ones who drive digitalization within the administration, we leverage the advantages of modern working methods, bringing them up close and making them tangible while promoting the acquisition of skills.

Our values

Passion

We are all convinced of the necessity of our mission and are committed to it. This motivates us anew every day. When we decide to do something, we do it. We make our contribution proactively and devote all our energy to it. We confront challenges with optimism, creativity and pragmatism. We believe in the changes we initiate with our work and the impact we achieve.

Transparency

We actively practice transparency. As a learning organisation, we are transparent both internally and towards the outside world. We make our decision-making just as transparent as the motivations for our actions. We practice an open mistake and feedback culture and are committed to free access to resources and knowledge. Our principle: We work openly. We share our lessons learnt.

Partnership

We work as partners at eye level with the federal public administration, our fellows and users. We think holistically, actively listen to all project partners, and promote competence-building. We take every opportunity to respectfully learn from and with each other. Together, we are committed to a strong vision: a digital Germany.

Diversity

As an internal unit of the federal government with a start-up culture, diversity is part of our DNA. Everyone contributes their individual skills, experience and strengths. Empathy is key. Network intelligence is the result. Our credo: Diverse, interdisciplinary teams achieve better results. Full stop.

Integrity

As a non-profit organization, we stand for what we do. We do not work for profit, but we are keenly aware of our purpose. We take responsibility for our convictions. In all aspects of our work, we constantly question ourselves and think outside the box. We are trustworthy and honest in our dealings with each other and with our project partners. We remain true to our strategy and approach.
