Our staff work within agile and self-organising structures that give them plenty of scope for creativity.

We offer long-term prospects, a competitive salary including special allowances, and lots of opportunities for growth and development.  

"DB Systel has a unique corporate culture based on networking. This meant that, as a newcomer, I was able to get to know new colleagues quickly and share knowledge and ideas that could generate added value for Deutsche Bahn. You don't often come across a company like DB Systel where employees' ideas are welcome and appreciated. It shows how much the company values its staff."
