Company Life


Coffee is crucial to us. We take care of our coffee machine by ourselves and do many experiments to get out the best of the coffee beans.
We love to snack our company chocolate during our meetings. What’s your favorite selection?

We love the team. So we are organizing regular events. Besides a summer and Christmas Party, we also sometimes like to have beer tastings and such.

Every Wednesday is Mettwoch! Then the whole Bareways team gathers for a snack of “Mett” rolls and gets inspiration by watching a movie or documentation about off-road adventures, expeditions, or challenges.

Every day at 10 am, we meet with the whole team for our stand-up. There we share our thoughts and tasks from the day before and the plans for the actual day.
Every two weeks, we have our sprint-planning. There we discuss and plan the tasks for the next two weeks and review the last two weeks.

Bareways Logo

Stone cairns in fron. In the Background a valley and blue sky with the Bareways logo.

The simple graphical layout symbolizes a pile of stones – in some countries named a cairn – that shall guide travelers on unpaved terrain when there is no clear path ahead.

Yet, it also resembles a windy road – broken into sections of known and unknown terrain.

Altogether, it symbolizes guiding & finding your way in challenging situations.

The Idea behind BAREWAYS

The idea for BAREWAYS was born at the end of 2017 when BAREWAYS’ CEO Moritz got stuck with his car on a steep road in the Thuringian Forest after a snowfall and wondered why the car couldn’t recognize that it wouldn’t be able to get up the mountain in the snow. With all the available data, why didn’t the car and the navigation system know there would be a problem in passing the road? And so the idea for a data-driven routing and navigation service that takes all available data, such as weather, terrain, surface conditions, and points of interest into account, was born – generating the most reliable, safest, scenic, and adventurous routes to drive.
