Care for the Protected Space

Our creative retreat. A protected space for crazy ideas, agile processes, action, and fun. The digital lighthouse within the Haniel group. Innovation projects need room to evolve and that’s exactly what Schacht One provides for its customers. 

Located on the historical UNESCO world heritage Zeche Zollverein – where Haniel’s impressive history started more than a century ago – Schacht one is based in the future heart of the startup scene Ruhrgebiet. Here, we combine modern startup culture with the industrial charm of the region. Our open offices foster communication, while integrated work spaces allow focused group sessions. Workshops and events find their natural home in our offices.

The challenge: hold the wall! A castle needs care, protection, and improvement. Its internal organization, external ties, and overall functioning need to be maintained. In short, it needs structure. We don’t want creativity to result in chaos (well, only to a certain degree).


Workplace & Culture

Schacht One feels like a startup with corporate DNA. Of course, we have table-tennis and foosball tables. Of course, we don't wear suits and ties. And yes, our offices look really cool. However, we still care a great deal about "corporate challenges".

We believe teamwork is key, making personal fit the most crucial job requirement. Aside from our professional passion for change and innovation, we still want to have a lot of fun together.


Perks & Benefits

As a member of the Schacht One team, you are more than a small cog in the wheel - you have the opportunity to create impact on the digital journey of the Haniel group. We are startup and corporate rolled into one - something unique for sure.

  • The Approach

    The location and our team are unique. Together we rock the house and bridge corporate gaps to create tangible assets and digital services instead of pure Powerpoint presentations.

  • The Learnings

    At Schacht One, you will have the opportunity to gain in-depth insights into the (digital) challenges of various business models. To cope with these challenges, we employ our profound and constantly growing network of partners and try out new ways of problem solving on a daily basis.

  • The Serious Fun

    We are not external consultants – we are partners of our business units. Our mission is not generating the highest profit, but helping our customers to succeed on their journey. Our unique positioning in the Haniel group creates intrinsic motivation in the project teams and trust into our approach at the same time. We don't expect 16-hour work shifts - we push for self-responsibility.

  • The Financials

    We believe, working at Schacht One is a benefit by itself. We also believe that great work requires appropriate financial compensation. Thus, we offer a competitive salary. Most positions at Schacht One also include a company car.
