Architecture / Real Estate

Our real estate holdings currently amount to a total area in excess of 253,000 m2 – so it’s no surprise that we fall back on the expertise of ingenious architects, internal designers, technicians, project managers and draughtsmen and -women. Whether arcade, event location or office building – make your creative visions come true with us.

Craft / Production

To ensure we are well-equipped for all challenges, reliable manual skills and the expertise of our colleagues in production are as important to us as strategic concepts and innovative ideas. We’ve got this covered by recruiting qualified and hands-on caretakers, electrical engineers, foremen or production staff. Together there’s no challenge we can’t overcome!

Distribution / Sales

As a fast-growing corporate group, we view progress as an opportunity and are therefore always on the next mission towards the future. As a business developer, for example, you can actively help us to break new ground and consolidate our standing in the national and international marketplace. We also offer a variety of entry options in sales and distribution.

Engineering / Technology

On the technical level, we have need of a diverse range of skills – for example when it comes to developing and marketing new generations of slot machines or money-exchange machines, or guaranteeing smooth technical processes. This is where skills and a wealth of ideas come into play. Our service technicians, for example, are committed to ensuring lasting satisfaction in the branches and with our customers.

Finances / Taxes / Financial Controlling

To ensure everything tallies below the line in our national and international accounting systems, we need the expertise and diligence of dedicated number crunchers. They are responsible for compiling a wide range of data and balance sheets, country-related financial controlling and the processing of taxation matters in a professional and prudent manner.

Human Resources

Our HR world encompasses all aspects necessary for modern recruiting and responsible HR management. The activities of our more than 60 HR professionals range from payroll accounting, training and personnel development to personnel marketing.


Do bits and bytes make your heart leap? If so, then you’ll feel right at home in our IT departments. Here you can learn all about game development in C++, advice and support for SAP, application development in Java or the operation of our own computer centre at our Espelkamp location. Over 1,000 developers worldwide are already creating new worlds for us.

Legal Affairs

Thanks to the efforts of our legal eagles, we are always on the safe side when it comes to legal matters. They help us resolve legislative issues as well as give guidance on complex governance matters. Fortunately for us, rules and regulations are right up their street and their trained eye for detail can always be relied upon.

Marketing / PR / Events

To allow us to reach our target groups quickly, easily and effectively, we depend on the vision and specialist know-how of our marketing experts. In this exciting area, online marketing skills, alongside many others, are in demand to enable us to create and maintain a successful online presence. Of course, we love to meet our customers and business partners face to face – this is where the creative minds from our trade fair and event management or PR departments come into play.

Materials management / Logistics / Purchasing

Even with a storage area of 21,000 m2, our colleagues from the logistics department can easily keep track of everything, even successfully handling complex large-scale projects. Our purchasing and procurement specialists at the same time ensure that we are always optimally supplied with everything we need for modern gaming and entertainment.

Media / Graphics / Design

It’s especially the inner values that count, right? But best game graphics mean that we are proud to offer our customers attractive outer values as well. This is the merit of our graphic artists and media designers, who are always conjuring up new visual highlights. And of course we have also created accounts on all the relevant social media channels – managed by our very own advertising agency.

Product Management

New products can’t just be pulled out of a hat overnight, but they do require a magic touch. And of course strong ideas. Both apply to our product managers, who oversee the development of the next generation of gaming machines, casino platforms or money-exchange machines. What they design and supervise guarantees fun and excitement at gaming venues around the world. The same goes for our product coordinators who are responsible for numerous service products.

Project Management

We still have lots of great plans for the future, which is why our to-do list is brimming with projects. These range in scope from IT optimisation and new services to economic and strategic topics – for which we need people with ideas and project managers who can master even complex projects and bring them to a successful conclusion. If you are someone who likes to hold the reins firmly in your hands, the MERKUR GROUP is the right place for you to develop your talents and ambitions.

Support / Services

We offer a wide range of services for our customers as well as our employees – and in doing so rely on the support of both flexible and motivated service staff.
