Working student (f/m/d) Digital Products

Help us become the leader in the construction industry.

HeidelbergMaterials is one of largest building materials producers in the world, operating in more than 60 countries. We lead the way in sustainable materials by reducing carbon emissions while increasing quality.

HeidelbergMaterials is also a software development company. We offer a digital product suite that makes our customers’ lives easier. Our department works like a Silicon Valley startup within a Dax corporation. We have an in-house research team, UX designers and product development teams. Our ambition is to provide a best-in-class user experience and to fundamentally change how we do business with our customers. We are developing a globally scalable suite of products, where each product is tailored to the specific requirements of our customers or groups of customers.

You would be helping to thrive two digital products: Hub, the global customer web portal - allowing customers to see all their business data, order materials online, pay online and much more; and Datalink, the global customer API - serving the same use cases.

This is an exciting opportunity for a self-starting/driven, switched on student, who wants to gain experience in a multi-national corporation, and wants to learn more about customer centricity and agile software development. For the right person there is an opportunity to take responsibility and lead initiatives within the product team.

You will be crucial to the success of our product rollouts, as you will be one of the key contacts for our markets. This includes supporting the product owner in the analysis of business processes, the market specific requirements engineering for a product deployment, and the project management during the deployment.
