About the business division:
Technology underpins Deutsche Bank’s entire business and is changing and shaping the way we engage, interact and transact with our stakeholders, internally and externally. Our Technology, Data and Innovation (TDI) strategy is strengthening our engineering expertise, introducing an agile delivery model, and is modernising the bank's IT infrastructure with long-term investments and taking advantage of cloud computing. We are building a team of visionary technology talent that will ensure that we thrive in this period of unprecedented change for the industry. That means hiring the right people and giving them the training, freedom and opportunity they need to do pioneering work.
Our technology teams deliver and manage engineering solutions to support the bank’s global customers. You will develop and deliver solutions to help modernise technology solutions, to reduce complexity and risk, and to drive business growth. You will be part of a creative, collaborative and innovative team, partnering with others, sharing solutions and you will have a strong desire to make an impact.
What we look for:
We seek apprentices who excel at solving problems and can collaborate effectively in teams and across a global organisation. This means having outstanding communication, empathy and influencing skills. You should be proactive; challenging established ways of working to instead innovate and improve. You should be focused on delivering in an agile way, which means continually creating value for the business, and learning and continuously improving yourself and your team’s performance.
We hire apprentices who are inquisitive and want to understand how and why things work, and then improve them, in the process developing their capability and careers at DB. This means being passionate about technology and the business, and constantly making things better for our customers.
