Career at CarboTech


Working at CarboTech

CarboTech is one of the world’s leading full-service provider of powdered, granular, and extruded activated carbons in Germany, headquartered in Essen, in the heart of the Ruhr region.

That is the brief description of who we are.

But finding a good job is much more than simply checking whether the sector and qualifications suit me as an employee. The actual deciding factors in choosing a company are things like a good gut feeling, a good team I can count on, enjoying going to work in the morning, appreciation for one’s own work performance and having a supervisor who encourages and supports me as an employee.

So, we’ll just let our team colleagues tell us here about their personal experiences at CarboTech.

In my department, it is important to be able to rely on close colleagues. Because when changing activated carbon in the customers' plants, a small mistake can have dire consequences. Joint team meetings, constant exchange and training by colleagues for colleagues prevent this and allow us to grow closer together as a team. Pedro Acosta, service technician at CarboTech.



Not only our customers benefit from this important step towards the future, but also you as part of the CarboTech team. On the way to CarboTech 2.0, you can change and grow.

We are already thinking about the future today and laying the foundations that will continue to provide secure jobs and maintain our competitiveness in the future.

Our activated carbon removes harmful and undesirable substances from a wide range of media and does so across all major industries – from the agricultural sector to the food industry or automotive applications, we are almost invisible and yet indispensable.

We need new colleagues who want to make a difference and help shape things. That’s why we offer you the opportunity to quickly take on responsibility for projects and products.

Our unique fluidized bed process enables us to produce the highest quality activated carbon products. Because we stand for quality, adaptability, commitment, dedication, and sustainability.

Despite our steady growth, we have maintained flat hierarchies and short decision-making paths.

We offer you interesting and challenging training opportunities that will help you to improve your performance and realise your full potential at every stage of your career.

Balancing work and private life? No problem with us. We offer working models that fit the life situation of each individual.

Our success has about 100 faces – without this team with its diversity of experiences, perspectives and lifestyles, we would not be where we are now.

By great misfortune, I broke my leg several times over half a year ago. From one second to the next, you are suddenly unable to work. It's nice to have an employer at your side who gives you the security of not having to worry about your job at that moment. It's nice to have an employer by your side who gives you the security of knowing that you don't have to worry about your job at that moment, but who accompanies you throughout the entire healing process and ultimately makes it possible for you to reintegrate into the work mode in a way that is tailored to your needs. It's great to be back on board, to have a great team around me and to finally have regained a bit of normality.

Daniel Böke, Managing Director of the CarboTech Group.


I have been CEO/ Managing Director of the CarboTech Group since 2019. The transformation the entire company has undergone in all areas since then is impressive.

It’s not just visually that a lot has happened on the company premises and in the administration building because of our constant investments. What has really taken us to the next level is the change of mind that has taken place within the entire team and at all levels. Working with each other across departments, including the associated processes, has moved away from a “I” to a true “WE”.

Daniel Böke, Managing Director of the CarboTech Group. "Whoever has stopped striving to become better, has stopped being good. That's why we support our employees in constantly developing and grow beyond themselves."

A strong team effort in my opinion, because such a complete change also requires a lot of courage, stamina and creativity. This newly created team spirit in the form of “WE” is something we want to preserve and continue to live, because it is the only way we will be able to keep CarboTech fit for the future as a company – in the market and as an employer.

To this end, in my function I clear the way for every employee to continuously develop themselves and their area of responsibility. On the other hand, this also means that every colleague can very quickly assume full responsibility for his or her area. And that is exactly what we need: Colleagues who can collaborate, think ahead and tackle problems. – To define it in terms of the Ruhrpott spirit.

Daniel Mandau


I have only been part of the team since 2022 and can truly say with the utmost conviction that I made exactly the right decision. From the very beginning, I was entrusted with the management and development of the service department, including the associated responsibility. The nice thing about it, however, is that at the same time my superiors and the entire team had confidence in me and my concept, so that I was not slowed down, but have already been able to make a lot of progress. Working in such a great atmosphere with colleagues and superiors is of course additionally motivating.
