About DHL IT Services & Digital Platforms

At DHL IT Services, we’re designing, building and running IT solutions for the

whole DPDHL globally. Millions of people who ship their packages, countless businesses we support with logistics services and 550k colleagues – all running from our datacenters with thousands of servers and applications.

This naturally means a lot of digitalization – our key priority for the coming years, deeply embedded in strategies across the company. Simply, we recognize digitalization as the biggest opportunity since globalization. Digital Platforms is a new “fresh out of the oven” department, where we can address this digitalization theme much more closely. There, you will find topics like APIs, Blockchain, Internet of Things, Data Lake & Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Automation and more. We’re designing, prototyping, building – but also running and supporting cutting-edge digital solutions for our customers and employees. We’re very excited to see the positive impact of our work – but also recognize the potential is much larger. Therefore, we need you!

How do we work?

We like to do everything in an Agile/DevOps way. No more throwing the “problem code” to support, no silos. Our teams are completely product oriented, having end to end responsibility for a success of a product in development and in production. Typically, you would find roles like DevOps Engineers, Product Managers and Scrum Masters only. Same people, taking care of the full stack of infrastructure, application, but also the business side of the product. The day-to-day work is typically organized using Scrum, so stand-ups, reviews, retrospectives, estimating story points, working in impediments, iterating on the product, deploying many times etc. Like in any other company, it’s not Scrum 100% by the book, but we try to live the principles of the Agile manifesto and have a culture of trying to get better every day, embracing failures if they happen – they’re great learnings, too!

The development is following DevOps culture, so, whatever one builds, he/she supports in Production in case of issues. There’s also space for exploration, as the product and customer need to be continuously developed, so we work with startups and other enterprises to stay on the cutting edge and cherry-pick what makes sense.
