IT & Digital

The information revolution.

Nothing runs here without your work

To keep the energy flowing, we need to keep the systems going.

As a qualified IT pro, that’s where you come in. At RWE, you’ll work in dynamic self-organising teams using the latest technologies and techniques to respond to rapidly changing requirements.

The work you do will be vital, whether you’re operating and upgrading the data backbone of a major division, creating next-generation digital tools to streamline processes and drive growth, or helping departments build up and harmonise their tech stacks:

Shape RWE's digital future

You’ll work in a variety of coding languages, which could include (but is not limited to) C#, R, Python Angular and SQL. It’s rewarding work, in a field that’s forward-looking and full of opportunities to develop and diversify.

If you’ve got the skills to modernise our future, we’ve got the prospects to optimise yours.

The RWE IT skill set

Aside from a relevant degree or other higher qualification, you’ll need in-depth understanding of IT systems and the ability to work well in a team while taking the initiative when required. Plus project/product management skills, a customer-oriented mindset, perseverance and of course that all-important ability to analyse issues and communicate them, clearly and fluently.

Rising to the occasion

Providing a global company with IT support can be quite testing. Devising an instant fix when issues arise is one challenge – though another is explaining that this isn’t always possible. At times, you’ll need to create “one size fits all” solutions and at other times it may be more bespoke. And when remote wind farms develop IT problems, resolving these can also be pretty tricky – but vital! Are you up for the task?

"IT has a lot to do with people", says Chief IT Architect Dr. Tobias Bluhm. Digitalisation is producing one innovation after another. While there are more and more IT solutions, system landscapes are becoming increasingly complex and confusing. This is where IT Architects come in. Read for yourself about his exciting day-to-day work at RWE Supply & Trading and find out which aspects of his job he enjoys the most within #TeamRWE.

What is the function of the Architecture & Cloud IT team?

"My colleagues and I support the development, control and management of RWE Supply & Trading's IT strategy and landscape, as well as the evaluation and implementation of technology innovations."

What does a typical working day look like?

"You might not expect it, but IT has a lot to do with people. Much  of our daily work actually involves exchanging ideas and overcoming challenges together. For example, we support other teams in finding the right IT solutions for their area of work. To do this, we often work together with the teams to determine the current status and processes, or build innovation prototypes together with business and IT teams to evaluate solutions."

What do you like most about your job?

"I particularly like the fantastic cooperation with my team and how diverse my work is. I am also passionate about matters related to innovation because I find it exciting to test out new technologies and implement them in our IT landscape as needed."

Solving problems, making connections

Problem-solving is among humankind’s greatest pleasures, and it’s one you’ll experience on a daily basis at RWE.

You’ll also get to connect with different teams and learn how they operate. You’ll be part of a close-knit team with a collaborative feedback-oriented culture, though you’ll also find plenty of opportunities for growth, independence and initiative.

Plus of course the satisfaction that comes with helping shape the future – not just for us, but for the whole world.
