We are convinced that true quality always will pay off. Therefore, all we want is to do an outstanding job, and we have no objection to being rewarded outstandingly in return. Certainly not too much, but equally certainly not too little. Simple, honest, and crystal clear.
Moreover, we strongly believe that such top-notch quality can only be realized by top-notch people using top-notch gear. Consequently, Exite never economizes on those. Knowledge is power, and good tools do half the job, so we are always more than happy to invest in both.
Exite started as a lean and mean company, and we intend to keep it that way. We do not feel the urge to grow into the umpteenth consultancy outfit with 100 or more acne-covered recent graduates in dark blue suits, who yet must learn everything but nevertheless have to live up to customer's expectations of "senior consultants", or - uglier still - "assistant managers".
At Exite, no chic office buildings on A1 locations (whatever is wrong with some remote working), no secretaries (our office skills can't be beat anyway), no uninterested field managers (if something comes up, you just call, or we sit down together to discuss), no lazy account managers (we know our customers best ourselves), no legal staff, no marketing dept, no hrm, no accountants, no controllers. And absolutely, positively, no "assistant managers.
We do not want to invest in such overhead, which we have to earn first. and quite frankly, we already have had and done all of that in the past, and we really don't need it anymore. Been there, done that. We definitely prefer to roll up our own sleeves. And that suits us just fine, for years already.
In a nutshell, we want to be a successful, comradely, down-to-earth company, without parasites. If you wish to share in the success of Exite, excellent, and you're more than welcome, but you will need to pull your own just like everybody else.
This is the easy part. There aren't any. We don't endorse shareholders value, and we don't feel the numbers must necessarily increase by double digits every year.
We think it is a pretty good year already, if:
We don't live to work, rather we work well in order to live well. This means doing a first class professional job, which is not only fun to do, but also earns you respect and acclaim. And that's really all there is to it.
Here are - as americans would term it - our "values":
And let's never forget to have fun !
If this sounds good, take a look at
Alas, we are quite demanding. You will appreciate that, considering our goals and culture, we must be pretty choosey. And yes, we are lucky to be in the very fortunate position that we can afford that.
Of course, you are not required to match all of the characteristics outlined below, but still we would like to see the majority.
You still with us? Good! Now it is our turn.
We give you the complete freedom to develop your talents to the fullest, pursuing your career in the direction of your preference. Obviously within the limits of the attainable, but you will find that those are pretty elastic with us.
We cannot make your career, you will have to do that yourself. What we can do is create the circumstances and means to make that happen.
For starters, you determine yourself, in consult with us, the shape of our co-operation. There are 4 different possibilities to work for, or with, Exite.
In descending order of "own risk" and also of remuneration level, they are:
You are an independent entrepreneur, and demonstrably in compliance with all going legal regulations.
Exite contracts your services on project basis to carry out an assignment. You invoice Exite, and Exite invoices the client. Exite charges you a management fee depending on the amount of effort required to acquire and co-ordinate the assignment, and on the extent of risk or liability we carry in connection with the assignment.
The principal is always fully informed about, and agrees with, your being a subcontractor.
This is an option if either you do not comply with all legal regulations on independent entrepreneurship, or the principal does not allow subcontracting.
We place you on our payroll for a minimal base salary plus variable pay in accordance with the agreed rate, and we take care of remittance of income tax and social security duties.
We give you a labor contract for the fixed duration of the assignment, which can be extended once for a second fixed period. Specific clauses will be included for cases of absence, illness, incapacity and such. Although you formally are on Exite's payroll, you are not entitled to the full benefits of a regular employee.

You are placed on our payroll and enjoy full employee benefits. You take co-responsibility of your own contract acquisition.
Your salary is composed of a (slightly less than market) base salary and a variable pay proportional with the profit you realize.
Exite initially offers all new employees a labor contract restricted to a fixed period. The underlying train of thought is that if this bothers you, you may lack self-esteem; an absolute prerequisite to work at Exite.
