Employment at the Hasso-Plattner-Institute for Digital Engineering

In 1998, SAP co-founder Prof. Hasso Plattner established the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) as Germany’s excellence center for Digital Engineering. In 2017, HPI and the University of Potsdam founded the Digital Engineering Faculty - the only privately financed faculty at a public university in Germany, funded by the Hasso-Plattner-Foundation. We strive to offer an innovative and personalized learning experience to our 800 bachelor and master students as well as a collaborative and inclusive working environment for our faculty and staff. One of the University of Potsdam’s and HPI’s strategic goals is to strengthen diversity and to significantly increase the proportion of women in research and teaching. Therefore, women and members of traditionally underrepresented minority groups are particularly encouraged to apply.


The attractive and stimulating position in a vibrant, collaborative, and engaging HPI community offers abundant opportunities to cultivate your research, to exchange ideas with our carefully selected group of students, to contribute to our vision and growth, and to enjoy a great place to live – especially for families. HPI’s campus is spacious, green, modern, equipped with the latest technology – and right next door to Berlin. We also help you to accelerate your spin-off ideas with design thinking and our support program for entrepreneurs.
