Become a trainee at one of the leading ICT providers

DB Systel offers graduates of STEM courses a trainee programme with a special focus on ICT and therefore a perfect basis for their career.

During your year as a trainee, you will gain initial practical experience in ICT project business and will get to know structures and systems of an ICT provider. At the beginning of the trainee programme, we will specify a target position and department and devise an individual trainee plan together with you.

Depending on your preferences and field of studies, you will be working in your future working environment for six months in one of the following areas:

  • Strategic planning
  • Professional analysis
  • Customer advisory service
  • Software architecture
  • Platform management
  • Operations

A mentor will oversee your activities along the way. Disciplinary and cross-disciplinary training helps you prepare for your future tasks. This includes the introductory DB Start seminar and methodical and personality seminars. Lectures and discussions with different managers and events organised by the TraineeClub of Deutsche Bahn AG complete our programme. You can start your trainee programme at any time of the year.


To qualify for our trainee programme, you should have completed your studies with good or excellent grades. You should also have gained some practical experience during internships or as working student. A good command of English, communication skills and the ability to grasp the basic concept of complex contexts complete your profile.
