IN THE BEGINNING
One warm summer evening, three friends got lost while driving in the mountains. In that moment, they realized how dependent they were on their GPS, and that they wouldn't have found their way home without a navigation system. It was then that the three future co-founders of Userlane understood the importance of guidance and imagined how beneficial it would be to implement the same concept to software.
The idea of interactive guides was born. Development began in a small Munich apartment. From the very beginning, the founders' intention was to provide guidance within the chaotic world of user experience. And they wanted to achieve this with software that was appealing and easy to use.
TODAY WE'RE DIFFERENT BUT QUITE THE SAME
Since then, the company has grown a lot. The software is currently being implemented all over the world and we now rely on a larger group of talented and charming people. Our offices are bigger and we have real desks, but we’re still true to our initial spirit: be genuine, listen to customers, and keep it beautifully simple.

We want to close the knowledge gap between human and machines.
We already enable every human being to immediately operate any software without any previous knowledge. Know-How of special software will no longer be something to be acquired but something publicly available to everyone.
Mission or How we Get There
We’re building a navigation system for software. In cars, simple directions at the right time guide us safely to any destination. For software we do the same: We just show the end-users where to go next and help them reach their final destination.
We believe in a positive approach towards challenges. We enjoy what we do and we think you deserve to have fun working with us too. We strive to keep positivity central in all our conversations, no matter how small or innocuous the exchange may seem.
We embrace change and are driven by the desire to explore and learn in every conversation, every meeting and every new product that comes our way.
Make it simple
In a continuously changing world, we cut through the noise and focus on the essence of things. Our goal is to reduce complexity and find solutions that make people's lives easier.
As a proud equal opportunity employer, we’re committed to hiring top talent regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or other applicable legally protected characteristics.
