We...

...connect millions of people with our mobile brands and offer our customers mobile freedom in the digital world. Plus, as a leading telecommunications provider, we’re playing a vital part in shaping digitalization in Germany. Our fixed and mobile networks form the backbone for the digital transformation of business and society. And our around 8,500 employees in Germany help drive the transformation day in, day out – in our own company too.

Our Digital Transformation Program

In our 18-month program for Young Professionals, you’ll get an intensive insight into the world of Telefónica and experience a systematic development program that takes you to the next level, both professionally and personally. This includes project missions in various corporate departments or our startup accelerator Wayra, individual learning journeys and a mentor at top management level. We believe that people can use their skills profitably in a variety of contexts and surpass themselves. For this reason, with us you don’t choose your specialist field but your skill cluster: Technology, Data or Commercial. All three fields of competence are strategically relevant enterprise-wide for our company – the best conditions for your start and your onward journey with Telefónica. REACH BEYOND.

Start your digital transformation in one of our skill clusters

TECHNOLOGY

If you already have experience with different cloud-based technologies, understand the IT value chain end-to-end and have a good knowledge of microservice architecture, modelling concepts, machine learning and cluster analyses, then our Technology cluster is the right one for you. It’s not about technology as an end in itself – but about a digital, agile and results-oriented mindset. You’ll contribute your skills in various departments and projects – and help us make a powerful, modern network, new digital business models and future technologies available for our customers. That’s what we mean by BEYOND Technology! Together, we constantly develop ourselves, our strategies, programs and methods, with the aim of making a difference for society and our company. Be part of it! Next Recruiting Start: Summer 2021

COMMERCIAL

If you’ve already worked in product management, have experience in communications, appreciate data analytics and have customer experience skills, then our Commercial cluster is the one for you. We foster a digital, customer-focused and results-oriented mindset, which you’ll apply in various departments and projects – well beyond the original commercial topics, with a focus on our private and business customers as well as our partner companies. That’s what we mean by BEYOND Commercial! Together, we constantly develop ourselves, our products and strategies, with the aim of making a difference for our customers and our company. Be part of it! Next Recruiting Start: Summer 2021

DATA

If you already have experience in data analytics or data science, find data- driven decisions better than pure gut feeling, and have a basic knowledge of Tableau and MS Power BI, then our Data cluster is the one for you. It’s not about number crunching as an end in itself – but much more about the results-oriented acquisition, analysis and interpretation of data. You’ll apply these skills in various departments and projects with us, supporting the sound strategic planning and implementation of business activities. That’s what we mean by BEYOND Data! Together, we constantly develop ourselves, our strategies and methods, with the aim of making a difference for our customers and our company. Be part of it! Next Recruiting Start: Summer 2021

Why Telefónica?

We make digitalisation a real-world experience! Because we connect the most people in Germany through mobile technology and, as a system-critical infrastructure company, we’re playing a vital part in driving the digital transformation in this country. No two days are alike with us. Inspired by the opportunities that digitalization creates for all our lives, we develop smart solutions for our customers and together get the results out onto the streets. We combine the best of all worlds! Because nowhere else you can combine the benefits of a startup, a management consultancy and a corporate like we do: We have flat hierarchies, are happy to allocate responsibility and give you creative freedom. We value expertise and strategic thinking and we often work in ‘project mode’ with all its variety. And at the same time we have a unique, diverse team and offer all the benefits and securities of the corporate world! It’s not just mobile freedom we love! Our passion for freedom is not just reflected in our mobile products but also in the way we work. With us there’s no silo mentality – you’re free to contribute your skills in all kinds of ways, gain new perspectives across the departments and make a real impact. We also allow you a flexible work/life balance – the freedom to “work hard, live hard”. This is why we enable working Germany-wide and adjusting your working time according to your life.
You’re in the driving seat of your own career! Because predefined development paths are outdated, you can be proactive and keep on expanding your skills profile with digital courses, job rotation, mentors and our communities. Simply choose your direction, select the appropriate offerings for you, and map out your very own personalised career with Telefónica. #BEYONDcareer Together we make a difference! Because we take our responsibility as part of society seriously and we want to make the opportunities of the digital transformation available to all, with us you can do your bit too. Social engagement is firmly anchored in our corporate culture and is supported by numerous activities by our staff. Be it our International Volunteering Day, our Xmas Campaign or the O2 Tower Run for a good cause – together we make a difference!
