join us in Herzo

The PUMA corporate Headquarters are located in Herzogenaurach or Herzo, as we like to call our hometown, located in southern Germany close to Nuremberg.  Every day, more than 1000 colleagues walk through our doors, ready to push sport and culture forward.  And if you’re lucky, you just might run into Usain Bolt or Antoine Griezmann walking down the hall.

PUMA Herzogenaurach

In the center of europe

When joining a career at our PUMA Headquarters, you will find yourself in the middle of Europe, as Germany is close to many other European countries like Italy, France and the Netherlands, among many others. Due to the proximity of the Nuremberg airport, which is only 20 minutes away by car, you can easily reach vibrant cities for a weekend trip. Another two of Germany’s main airports, Munich and Frankfurt, are less than two hours away by car and are your access to travel all around the globe.

In order to critically examine ourselves as a company and our measures, we decided to participate in the Pride Index 2022. We are especially proud to have made it into the Top 20, being awarded with the Pride Index seal in gold.
