Within Volkswagen Group Services, there are all kinds of jobs available thanks to the myriad different services we provide. In our IT division, which we call "Data Engineering", these include systems development and systems implementation, as well as application support or application management and IT security.
Yet all of these tasks have one common requirement: with our work, we guarantee the smooth running of the information technology-based processes of our customers within the Volkswagen Group.
We offer young talented individuals the opportunity to show what they're made of. We regularly offer jobs on our jobs market especially for newcomers to an IT career. Experienced IT engineers, software developers and IT project managers or IT consultants have the best career prospects with us.
Roles in application or service management
Our portfolio of services within IT includes both application development and service management. Experience from real operations as well as customising requirements or complaints are integrated directly into our work: this enables us to ensure the smooth and efficient development of an application and the integration of the application software into new system landscapes. We accompany the entire life cycle of an application with our expertise – from the idea through its (further) development to its replacement. This is why this field of activity requires a high degree of reliability from us as an interface.
In application operations, we maintain and support all kinds of applications (application management support). We assist users (first and second-level support), working in compliance with the ITIL standard. This requires a high level of penetration in technical development and logistics on some projects; in other service areas, for example, procurement systems. Thanks to continuous optimisation within the group, we are constantly expanding our remit and therefore the challenges facing our team.
Jobs in systems development and systems implementation
For our customers from the Volkswagen Group, we translate requirements in the field of software development from requirements specifications, for example. We draw up specifications catalogues and draft a tailor-made technical concept and system design. We also adapt standard software solutions to customer-specific requirements (a process known as customising). We work according to the scrum model. Our specialists in information technology also conduct software tests and provide detailed documentation.
Java experts and software developers will also find exciting roles with us, as will junior software developers or programmers who are having a change of career. We train specialists in information technology in systems integration and application development ourselves.
Our jobs for specialists in systems administration and network administration
With our services, we support various software suites and systems, as well as their users. Alongside the classic IT service desk, these include dedicated software handling and technical support through to active directory support. IT specialists at Volkswagen Group Services GmbH work on more than just systems integration and application development. With the right aptitude and understanding of programming languages and tools, they are able to develop in other areas of IT as well. This is because our vacancies are initially advertised internally for staff, who are given preference over external candidates with the same skills.
Key requirements for administrator jobs include appropriate technical qualifications, a strong focus on goal achievement and service, being a team player and strong communication skills. Anyone wishing to start their IT career with us has the best prospects of career progression.
From IT consultant to in-house IT project management:
Even if you are looking for jobs in IT consulting in the automotive industry, we're the right people to get in touch with. Our services also include practical and application-oriented support as well as qualified advice on specific IT issues within the Group. Our consultants' aim is to ensure the best performance of a software solution. Our consulting team focuses on the areas of test strategy and quality assurance and incorporate methodological support with agile development methods.
Taking a holistic approach, our IT specialists analyse the architecture management system in place and highlight potential weak spots. Our experienced security experts offer advice on excluding any gaps in the web infrastructure's security for the Group. They check systems and also, where necessary, help to close any gaps found.
When business management and software engineering are required:
The development and use of information and communications systems are relevant to many of our areas of activity. As a business data processing specialist, you have the ideal interdisciplinary skills for a range of tasks that we carry out for the Volkswagen Group and its subsidiaries. In application management, for example, but most importantly in IT project management, we have a variety of opportunities for applicants who have studied business data processing.
You should have successfully completed a course of study in business data processing, business management specialising in IT or business information. Analytical skills, a structured approach and strong communication skills are important for a job in IT with us. The other requirements vary, however, depending on the area you'll be working in. But take a look at the various options we're able to offer you!
Entry opportunities for a specialist career
You don't always have to have linear career progression or a degree in IT to start out in data engineering with us. On some of our IT tasks, first-class moderation skills and other consultant skills are crucial if you also have an interest in IT and technical principles. Or maybe you'll start out in user management or handling support for specialist IT software. A thorough induction will lay the foundations for you to expand and deepen your knowledge. You can also change to other roles.
