    Our Story

    Personio’s co-founders – Hanno Renner, Roman Schumacher, Arseniy Vershinin, and Jonas Rieke – met while studying at the Center for Digital Technology & Management (CDTM) in Munich. Seeing how Europe’s SMEs were being held back by manual HR processes, they decided to build a software solution that empowers HR teams while improving employee experience and propelling businesses forward. 

    In 2015, Personio was born. Fast-forward to now, and Personio is Europe's leading HR software provider, empowering small and mid-sized organisations to grow and succeed.
