About Grabow & Kiss Software GmbH (GKS)
Wolfgang A. Grabow and Ákos Kiss, the founders of Grabow & Kiss Software GmbH, have been working together for over a decade. They spent around ten years in various positions within the Electric Paper Evaluationssysteme GmbH and in its specialised affiliate, Electric Paper Professional Services, where they learned what EvaSys and EvaExam are capable of on an operational level. But one question remained: what other possibilities were hidden in the already collected data? To answer this question, they founded GKS.
GKS is a quintessential medium-sized, but nonetheless, European company, and has the same dual nationality as its founders. Calling both Germany and Hungary their home, they are aware of the advantages the two countries have to offer, in a Europe that is growing ever closer together. The clearest sign of this was the decision made to open two locations – the Grabow & Kiss Software GmbH in Ludwigslust, Germany as well as the Grabow & Kiss Software Kft. in Budapest, Hungary.

The town is part of the metropolitan region of Hamburg. But more important than its proximity to one of Germany’s most beautiful cities is the personal connection to this gem of North-East Germany. Although GKS is a future-oriented company, it realises the importance of staying connected to its roots.
Budapest enjoys all the advantages an IT company could wish for. An historic, but also modern city, which is home to a workforce of highly-qualified professionals. Budapest is Ludwiglust’s vibrant antithesis.
Working at GKS
Balance isn´t only essential when it comes to location, but also in relation to employees’ needs. GKS isn´t a young start-up anymore, but given the young age of its owners, the needs and wants of young adults at the beginning of their career are at the forefront of their minds. But employees with some years of work experience behind them will also appreciate the attitude at GKS: good work can only be done if people are allowed to enjoy a private life outside work.
The work-life balance of their employees is crucial for GKS. That´s why working in the office over weekends and after hours is off the table. Thanks to agile planning, this isn’t in any case at all necessary. GKS tries to provide the maximum of flexibility possible as an employer to ensure a pleasant working environment – successfully it seems, as the very low turnover rate among its staff attests.
