WORKING IN IT AT TEUFELBERGER

Information Technology (IT) is often thought of as a company’s backbone. It ensures that others can do their jobs, connects people, enables communication and continued development, and is a fundamental part of a competitive business enterprise. In short: without it, nothing works!

At Teufelberger, IT not only provides and develops the systems that are crucial for us, but it also serves as a key pace maker for every single one of our 13 business units. It performs central control functions and helps spur digital development. The requirements are as diverse as our markets, and this diversity adds extra zest to your work in Teufelberger’s IT department.

Good reasons for an IT career at Teufelberger

We provide ideal conditions for a long-term career in our IT team. And we offer you a perfect start into your SAP career: tailored to your needs, well-structured and strength-focused. Following some basic training, you can specialize in certain SAP modules (e.g., logistics, sales, finance, ...).

This is what awaits you at Teufelberger:

  • A well-structured induction period with practice-focused training opportunities
  • A personal buddy who accompanies and supports you throughout your induction period
  • Collaboration in exciting in-house projects
  • Learning from and professional sparring with our experienced Senior Consultants
  • Attractive advancement measures that support you in your personal development

As a Junior In-house Consultant, you will undergo a well-structured induction and training program. During this process, you will always have a personal buddy by your side. You will be taught SAP basics, acquire in-depth knowledge, e.g., about module customizing, and special soft skills and learn consulting techniques. Through active involvement in IT projects, you will be gaining first-hand experience right from the get go. The official end of the first training program is a personal meeting in which we define your next development steps in a written development plan and celebrate the successful completion of the first level together in the team!


Our IT department currently consists of two main areas:

The Applications Team

At Teufelberger, we map our business processes in our IT applications. This means that we digitally accompany our business divisions along the entire value chain, from the first contact with a customer all the way to invoicing, and, for example, from the yarn to the finished climbing rope.

Our Applications Team is made up of an experienced SAP In-house Consultant Team as well as the so-called Enablement Team in which business informatics graduates but also career changers from other fields of study have the chance to receive the required training to become SAP In-house Consultants.

The Infrastructure and IT Service Desk Team

The Infrastructure Team is currently structured into the areas of System Operation, Service Desk, and Security. Ensuring proper and secure IT operations throughout the group, its tasks range from providing support for the entire network and server infrastructure to installing IT equipment for users. In the area of Security, we work with top security providers in order to ensure the best possible protection for our company.
