Trainee Program Information Technology

Our mission at Covestro: to MAKE the world a brighter place. Do your part to make this happen and make a difference as a trainee in our IT department!

„IT in a chemical company? We often hear “that does not fit” – In fact, it’s quite the opposite: With your expertise you will support different teams such as production, research, sales or marketing in topics regarding for instance automatization, digitalization and networking environment. You will be responsible for the smooth operation of our infrastructure, cooperate with renowned strategical IT partners and help us to lift our global business processes to the next level. A highly integrated, global IT architecture and modern applications are awaiting you at Covestro.

What to expect

  • Within 18 months you will gain a thorough insight into Covestro’s IT
  • Meanwhile you will pass through six to seven stations inside our company – which include inter alia stations abroad
  • Potential areas of focus: We will familiarize you with our IT infrastructure, show you what it comes down to in different roles when working on a project and give you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge in digital trends and technologies

What you need

  • A Master’s degree in one of the following areas or an area comparable to the following: Information Technology, Computer Sciences and Business Informatics. A Bachelor’s degree with proof of relevant professional experience will also be accepted as an alternative
  • Practical experience acquired during an internship, ideally in an industrial or chemical environment
  • Language: since you will be working in international teams – it is required to have a good command of the English language. Knowledge of the German language is a plus but not necessary

Apart from your IT expertise acquired during your studies and practical experience, we also put great emphasis on your personality and passion. With us, you will push boundaries, act curiously and courageously. We look forward to your ideas!
