Article: As an IT expert, you can actively shape the digital future of the railway

You know where things are going - and thanks to you, our trains will soon too. As an IT expert, you will actively shape the digital future of the railway.

We need talented IT professionals to help us keep our millions of passengers and thousands of trains on the move using the latest developments in digital technology.  As a DB Systel employee, you will play a key role in Deutsche Bahn’s digitalisation strategy and help shape the rail system’s digital future.   Our staff work within agile and self-organising structures that give them all the scope for creativity that they need. We rely on people who can work independently, who have a dedicated, can-do attitude, and who want to make progress – both on a personal level and for DB as a whole.

"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."
