IT traineeship

During your traineeship you can work on this goal by applying your technology expertise and data savviness. In 2020, the IT organization launched a new strategy organizing ourselves around nine IT platforms, for example Commerce, Supply Chain, Data & Analytics or IT Operations that have end-to-end responsibility for delivering IT services to the business. In the assignments you will do you will be part of one of these platforms and can expect to shape and implement our new technology strategy, facilitate decision making through data and AI solutions, set IT guidelines for the business and support digital transformation by automating processes. By experiencing different platforms during your traineeship you can successfully develop yourself in a fast track!
