  • Basic knowledge in the field of railway infrastructure, as well as railway operations, is an advantage 
  • Interest in contributing to the process of solving complex technical issues

  • Excellent correspondence skills in German and English 
  • Independent and accurate way of working, as well as interest in a broad range of tasks

Our offer to you:

  • After an extensive introductory phase to the focal points and tasks, you will be the first point of contact for the Head of Research and Development for all software-related questions, and will provide advice and support with your IT-specific knowledge.
  • On the other hand, you will subsequently supervise and lead the development and implementation of a comprehensive software solution that combines various technologies in the railway sector, is based on GIS, and will lead to a far-reaching optimisation of railway operations.
  • Largely flexible working hours make work and private life easily compatible.
  • A modern workplace in a single or double office in an office building not far from Heiligenstadt railway station, short decision-making processes and an environment that promotes disruptive thinking
  • We offer a gross monthly salary starting at € 4,142 on a full-time basis (40 hours) with the possibility of additional remuneration depending on previous experience and qualifications
