How we work
Fuelling tomorrow – that is our vision. The mobility of the future needs innovative solutions. The mobility of the future needs people who can make things happen. The future of mobility needs: you. On this page, you can learn what we expect from you, what is important to us, what we stand for, and how we work together.
We are people who contribute their thoughts, tackle challenges, imagine possibilities, solve problems, bring passion and creativity to everything we do, and work as team players. We always strive for the best. And we are all creating the future. As we have been doing for 75 years. As an international company with strong roots in Hamburg, our more than 1,000 colleagues work every day to shape the fuel world of tomorrow. With a lot of enthusiasm, ambition and know-how, we come up with innovative energy solutions to ensure that the world does not stand still. Whether on roads, in the air, or on the water.
We are driven by a fervent desire to pave the way to low-carbon mobility. The energy world is facing an unprecedented and radical change. Sustainability and decarbonisation are the issues that drive us. With us, you will be part of the solution. With your ideas, your drive and your engagement, you will help solidify Mabanaft’s status as one of the leading independent providers of sustainable fuel solutions.
At the same time, we are convinced that having the right team is what makes the biggest difference. With us, interacting with each other in a respectful and appreciative manner as well as fostering a success-oriented but supportive work environment are a given. And the same holds true for how we address each other in informal terms and as equals (using the German “du” form). If you want to launch your career with us, you can find the job that’s right for you!
A team is ONE team. You may be a young talent, a career-starter or an experienced veteran. You may work mobile, remotely or in the office. But regardless of your accomplishments or workplace, if you work with us, you will work with a wide range of very different people. With respect. With trust. And with the desire to bring out the best in yourself and your colleagues. That’s why we place a lot of value on responsibility, leadership and mutual advancement. With us, no one is left alone: Colleagues take pleasure in helping each other – and doing so is not a one-way street. Even our management can be approached or contacted by anybody. Everything we do, we do with passion. We celebrate our successes as a team. And we have each other’s backs when things don’t go so well. Because it is clear to us: We are ONE Mabanaft. Because together we can achieve much more.
You are who you are. And that’s a good thing, too. As a globally operating company, we believe in the power of diversity. Including different perspectives, personalities and cultural experiences in our day-to-day work strengthens our understanding for and our collaboration with each other. Diverse teams are more creative and more innovative – and deliver better results. Diversity also has a positive influence on the workplace atmosphere. That’s why we foster diversity in all its dimensions.
We are one of the signatories to the German Diversity Charter. And we actively oppose discrimination against and exclusion of individuals on the basis of gender, gender identity, nationality, ethnic background, religion, belief, disability, age and sexual orientation.
With our “Women@Mabanaft” network, we strengthen female colleagues in a targeted manner and offer them special opportunities for professional development and advancement. We actively foster awareness of the issue of gender diversity, and we aim to focus even more on topics like e.g. striking a work-life balance.
For us, diversity also means reconciling different ways and styles of working – at not only a personal, but also a corporate level. For this reason, our Flexible Working Guideline considers the differing demands and circumstances of our employees’ lives. Our teams devise their own ways for how, where and when they can work together best to achieve success.
However, Mabanaft does not only foster diversity within the company. For us, diversity is a task that concerns society as a whole. People often face disadvantages accessing educational opportunities as a result of their social background. That is why we provide financial assistance to two support programmes in our home city of Hamburg: the “Joblinge” initiative and the “Hamburg Stipendium”. Both programmes are committed to improving educational opportunities for young people who start their training, work or studies under challenging conditions.
Discover what you’re made of! Our world is in constant motion. This makes it even more important for us to not stand still, neither personally nor professionally. And that’s why your ongoing development and individual advancement are particularly important to us. The fact is that we can only grow if you grow, too.
And for us to help you grow, you need to know where you stand at all times. Our structured performance management system helps you and your line manager to agree on clear goals together and to measure them transparently. Regular feedback ensures that you can successfully pursue your individual development plan.
At the same time, we are convinced that there isn’t a single career path that’s right for everyone. That’s why we focus on personal responsibility and openness in our collaboration. We need to address the things that concern us in a transparent and honest way. This is the only way that we can learn with and from each other.
Our company- and learning culture is based on the 70-20-10 model, because we learn every day – from and with each other – and we also provide impetus to your ongoing development by offering a range of online trainings.
We want you to feel comfortable with us. Besides the challenging responsibilities and our special ONE Mabanaft team culture, you can look forward to enjoying a wide range of benefits. In addition to the Group-wide benefits, you will also be able to take advantage of various location-specific offers. And what are they? Well, you can read about many of them directly in the job advertisement, and our recruiters will be happy to provide you with more information during the interview process.
We adapt our working models to the differing life circumstances of our colleagues – and not the other way round. After all, rather than when or where you work, what really counts is the result. We allow our teams to flexibly arrange their working hours and workplaces. In addition, we offer part-time models and sabbaticals.
We’ve got you covered – with our company pension plan, comprehensive employee benefits, profit-sharing scheme and company accident insurance.
We care a lot about your personal and professional development. That’s why we invest in designing a comprehensive and tailored range of training offerings, including specific leadership courses.
Whether you commute on two, four or more wheels – we support your mobility by offering subsidised public transport tickets and e-bike charging stations.
Are you a fitness fanatic? Well then, after working out in our in-house fitness studio, you can enjoy a relaxing massage at work. Plus, we offer regular health check-ups.
We treat and speak with each other as equals (such as by using the informal “du” form of address in German).
“Whether on the water, on the road, or in the air: We are shaping the mobility of tomorrow. With our innovative energy solutions, we are ensuring that the world doesn’t stand still and that the energy needs of our customers are sustainably secured. With our synthetic fuels (e-fuels) and other low-carbon solutions, we are contributing to a green transformation of the economy.”

For a sustainable future
“Environmental protection and sustainability – but also health and safety at work – aren’t just empty words for us; instead, they are lived practice. To this end, we are constantly scrutinising our own processes and structures. After all, it is only by staying critical that you can truly keep improving. So that we work well and safely – for a sustainable future.”
Cornelia Grunwald, Head of HSSE
“Diversity is important to us. That’s why we are committed to it. The fact is that we are all different. We are people who contribute our thoughts, tackle challenges, imagine possibilities, solve problems, bring passion and creativity to everything we do, and work as team players. And that’s a good thing, too. Diverse teams work more creatively, more innovatively and more successfully. And, together, we are creating our future.”
