What makes proxomed special as an employer?
proxomed Medizintechnik GmbH is one of the leading companies in the fields of the development, production and sale of medical test and training devices for prevention and rehabilitation. One of our highest goals is to maintain and improve people’s quality of life through innovative products and comprehensive health concepts.
From intern to CEO
Marcus Melching, CEO of proxomed Medizintechnik GmbH, was once an intern here and so knows the potential career opportunities the company offers.
With the much-discussed skills shortage, we are currently aiming at filling open positions internally – as far as possible – and thus offering our own, proven employees interesting positions and opportunities for advancement. We see this as a form of appreciation.
I myself started at proxomed as an intern and joined the product management department after finishing my sports science studies, before then switching to management at our production subsidiary proxowell, finally rising to become chair of the management at proxomed. For this reason, we mostly offer entry-level positions. For these, we are most interested in hiring generalists who share our company philosophy.
Desire is more important than ability for our starter jobs. All employees are encouraged to share their knowledge with other colleagues so that every individual can improve. We very carefully check whether an applicant’s personality will fit our company. Naturally, we know that loyalty to employers is not as highly valued today as it was previously, but we do try to retain our employees over the long term and make them enthusiastic about our company through unified leadership standards, interesting tasks and internal promotion prospects.
There are many employees who have been with us for years and others who have returned to proxomed after time away. This gives us the feeling that we are doing something right.
30 years plus for a healthy society.
Promoting and maintaining health and quality of life through physical exercise – this is the long-term mission that proxomed has followed for over 30 years. With our engagement in medical technology, we offer high-quality products, technologies, solutions and services. Through this, we have become established as a reliable partner, recognised worldwide in the health market.
During the application process, the HR officer will store the data locally. Your application will be viewed by them and then handed on only to the person responsible for the decision (responsible supervisor and/or management). If a job offer is not made, all your data and the application will be deleted. If you want to be entered into our applicant pool for any future open positions, you must confirm that we are allowed to save your data for future job offers.
Information on the town
Alzenau, the most north-westerly town in Bavaria, has around 19,000 inhabitants and is directly on the border of the Lower-Franconian county of Aschaffenburg with the state of Hesse (Rhine-Main area). This centrally located “green town” lets you combine proximity with nature and urban living in the best possible way. The Spessart outdoor recreational area and the city of Frankfurt are only a stone’s throw away.
We treat each other with friendliness, respect and kindness, helping each other where we can. When new people arrive, we treat them with openness and interest. So that you can easily get on board, you will be given an initial view of every department; we will draw up an individually tailored induction plan and assign you a mentor if you want one for the first year here.
Hire and fire, quickly taking people on board when new projects come up and as quickly terminating their contracts at the end of the project: this is not our style. We carefully choose our new colleagues because we place great value on long-term collaboration. Our staff turnover is correspondingly low and our employees stay with us for an above-average length of time. We offer you a secure workplace, appreciation and recognition.
We will share our knowledge and experience with you openly and unbureaucratically – and not just in concrete projects, but in various informative and team meetings. Our success is based on teamwork, knowledge exchange and mutual support. Flat hierarchies, short communicative pathways, rapid decisions and clear processes are what distinguish our way of working. Shared employee events and team activities support our good sense of togetherness.
We will always pay your salary on time and support your family life through our home office offer, modern working hours model (full-time, part-time) and a tax-free daycare supplement. As a company, we stand for health, and so we provide you with free health training facilities in our nearby reference centre. We will subsidise your pension and employee savings fund. In our foyer, you have access to free drinks (water, various types of coffee). So you don’t have to worry about where to put your car, we have free parking spaces on the site. We are just a 2-minute walk away from the railway station.
