Individuality and diversity - a concept that works



With over 20 employees, we unite people with different cultural backgrounds, sexual identities and orientations. We support the individuality and needs of our colleagues and are open to all personalities and backgrounds. We do not categorize new employees according to their demographic characteristics, but rely entirely on their individual expertise and personal motivation to work with us on our mission. In doing so, we give our employees freedom and trust.



Diversity is part of the HUM Systems identity. Our team combines hardware, software, marketing and product experts under one roof. Only in this way is it possible to develop a product like Livy and to be successful on the market. In our team, employees have the opportunity to actively shape all processes and are fully involved from the sketch to the finished product and the market launch. Our employees often work in an interdisciplinary way and support each other independently with their diverse skills.


Competent & authentic

We demonstrate competence in dealing with technology, our partners and customers. In our personal dealings, we always remain ourselves and thus authentic.


With passion to the target

IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and much more. - The list of new technologies is long and we keep our finger on the pulse. But technology doesn't have a soul, but our team does. That's why we work on our technologies with passion and breathe life into them.


Work & life

Flexible working hours, cordial interaction within the team and joint events strengthen the feeling of a job that is a pleasure to come to in the morning. The needs of each individual employee are therefore heard and taken into account.

Since 2017, we have been developing smart home products under the Livy brand with passion and expertise. In 2019, we expanded our portfolio to include the area of digital care and thus find our way to the core of our very personal mission: We want to meaningfully counteract the increasing shortage of caregivers in Germany, efficiently relieve caregivers and make dignified care possible for everyone. For us, the focus is on people and their needs. 

Livy products stand for quality, safety, reliability and ease of use. We have already received several awards for this.
