We are HUM Systems
Tech startup HUM Systems was founded in 2017 by two brothers, Amir and Ali Reza Humanfar, and his wife Helena Peralta Becker. The startup started small with just three people and has grown to over 20 full-time employees within a few years. Furthermore, despite being a relatively young company, we have already established our presence in the German smart home networking market and have more than 30,000 satisfied users.

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.
Talent is only half the value without teamwork. We work in flat hierarchies, use agile methods (Scrum, Kanban, etc.) and set up interdisciplinary teams.
No matter what nationality, gender or ideology you feel you belong to. We want to promote diversity, ideas and inspiration. Tolerance towards others is our first priority.
By having the courage to take responsibility, we encourage our employees to go above and beyond. That doesn't mean mistakes can't happen, but learning from them and getting better next time makes all the difference.
