About HeidelbergCement AG

We are the "HDigital" team working in cross-functional agile teams on multiple products. We find a lot of joy in our vivid international work environment thanks to the various nationalities and cultures within our teams. Our strong believe is that software development is rather a "craft" than something that we just do from 9 to 5. Many different roles are part of the team in order to work on complex problems: Requirements Engineers, Front-End Engineers, Back-End Engineers, Data Engineers, Data Scientists, QA Engineers, Integration Engineers, DevOps Engineers, UX Designers and Product Owners.  Customer centricity is omnipresent in our day-to-day. We invest a lot of time into user research and talking to real customers (yep, also developers do that!) on construction sites and plants in order to ensure that we are solving real problems for our users.  Our ambition is to always thrive for becoming a high-performing team. We look at metrics and practices from books such as "Accelerate" or the "DevOps Handbook" as our northstar. It matters for us "how" we develop our products and not just "what" features we ship to our customers. We further seek for external inspiration by visiting conferences and meetups.  HeidelbergCement is taking the impact on the global CO2 emissions very seriously. Our key company goal is to reduce the CO2 emissions coming from our production process. We as "HDigital" are highly involved into this mission. A lot of software is being developed by us in our "HProduce" strategic program which consists of multiple agile cross-functional teams. Our Tech-Hubs are in Dallas, Heidelberg, Varna, Brno, Sydney and Kuala Lumpur.
