During the turbulent dot-com-period mid 1999, Markus Hartinger and Peter Fellinger worked for the Munich-based start-up company TWEST as freelancers.
In agreement with the owners of that company, the two decided to start their own company. Only the name was missing. Over a cup of cappuccino at their favorite coffee shop "kaffee & more" at Viktualienmarkt, they discovered the name "jambit " in a coffee manual. It stated that jambit is the best coffee plantation on the Indonesian island of Java. Obviously part of the name were the 2 letters "IT ", no similar entries were registered in search engines, domains were available , so the name was thus decided!
On December 23, 1999, the partnership agreement was drawn up and signed at a public notary.
The first corporate location was a lovely, small office high above the Sendlinger Street with a view over the peaceful Asamhof, in the immediate vicinity of the world famous Asamkirche. That was city life at its best. However, it soon became too small as large companies were quickly signed up as customers. Fortunately, office space became available next door and one could easily expand. Yet again the two offices combined - separated by a corridor, a foosball table in the entrance hall, server space ventilation in the kitchen - soon became too small.
Therefore, in mid 2006 jambit moved on to Stiglmaierplatz, where you could find the business premises in a modern, bright office space with lots of glass and a view of the Löwenbräu copper boilers. The bright round jambit logo facing onto Nympenburger Strasse rapidly became a well-known navigation point.
During the time at Stiglmaierplatz, jambit continued to grow, gaining many big-name customers and also many excellent new employees. So, once again the office became too small.
The search for a new location that should be at once central, easily accessible, attractive and modern, led finally to the "metris" building within the Arnulfpark at Donnersbergerbruecke, where jambit has been located since April 18, 2011.
