Xin chào! Greetings from Da Nang, Vietnam, the home of our first offshore Security Team.
mgm security partners Vietnam
Our sister company, mgm technology partners Vietnam, was founded in 2015. Today 110 software specialists work in Da Nang for German clients.
In January 2018 we started to build up a security team at this location. Since the beginning of this year, the colleagues have been fully operational and not only support our German team, but also serve customers worldwide.
Training is everything!
The metropolis Da Nang, located in the centre of Vietnam with 1 million inhabitants, has 2 universities with computer science education on an international level.
Employees who join mgm have successfully completed a demanding recruitment procedure. In addition, they participate in a 3-month intensive advanced English training course.
In the security area, only applicants who have either already worked in security or have intensively dealt with IT security in addition to their studies will be considered.
All newcomers undergo the same training programme as their German colleagues.
We share our knowledge

One big family!
In Vietnam, the family comes first. Solidarity, sense of responsibility and welfare, withdrawing for the benefit of the community are virtues that are carried over from the family to the company. The resulting team spirit and the effect on the working atmosphere are phenomenal! mgm supports and promotes this way of life which is deeply rooted in the culture through family days, sports groups and events, as well as consideration of family or private concerns.
Our Vietnamese colleagues are divided into two offices located close to each other. A colonial-style villa with 40 workplaces and a self-built 6-storey office building with 120 workplaces. The offices are connected via a dedicated line to the mgm network. The technical standard (server, laptops, internet, network technology, communication possibilities) is as good as that of the German offices.
