About the DigitalService4Germany GmbH

In September 2020, the formerly state-funded 4Germany UG was purchased by the federal government and thus became DigitalService4Germany GmbH. The goal: establishing a permanent in-house software development unit for the federal government, which builds user-centric digital services that work better for all people in Germany. In addition, the GmbH will continue to run the two fellowship programs Tech4Germany and Work4Germany. By bringing young professionals onto government projects, the fellowship programs have enabled participants to experience the advantages of agile and user-centric work since 2018.

Tech4Germany

Since 2018, the Tech4Germany Fellowship has been making the advantages of user-centered work in software development projects on a federal level tangible. Tech4Germany brings together 30 talents from the fields of technology, product and design for 12 weeks each year with the federal administration. In small teams of four people, user-centered software prototypes for concrete challenges of the federal ministries are developed using agile methods. The Fellowship Program is under the patronage of the head of the Federal Chancellery, Helge Braun.

Work4Germany

The Work4Germany Fellowship Program supports federal ministries in establishing new methods of working and developing methodological skills. Methodically strong young professionals work directly with the innovation drivers inside the institutions for six months. In cross-departmental projects with high implementation priority, the innovation tandems rethink processes. The close cooperation is intended to enable the innovation drivers to work on innovative projects in interdisciplinary teams in the long term and thus drive forward the modernization of the German state. Work4Germany was piloted in 2020 with 10 tandems.
