Have you always wanted to know why websites on the internet load as fast or slow as they do? How it's possible that all servers are overloaded when starting the latest hyped online game? How the big streaming providers manage to present new content to everyone simultaneously? How to plan, build and which different roles and people are necessary to realize large software projects?

You have your own opinion and are able to share it openly and honestly in a constructive way with others.

You're interested in working with international teams and are willing to communicate in English.

"The working atmosphere here is very relaxed and familiar. I can always find a helpful trainer or colleague who will help me with a problem. No one holds it against an apprentice here if they don't know something and have to ask."
"You're not just an apprentice here, but a full-fledged employee."
"Here we have free water, coffee, and fruit!"
"The lunch options are affordable and there's a wide variety of dishes - from hearty to vegan, there's something for everyone!"
"I can study for school or university and do my homework during working hours."
"Even if I have problems at school or university, whether it's with subjects or teachers, I receive support here."
"My tasks are varied and super interesting. They range from microcontroller programming to 3D printing and from backend development in Java to website programming with modern frameworks."
"In my first year I am already allowed to work on projects that are actively used in the company. I always have an experienced developer by my side who supports me and ensures that I can handle my tasks. This prepares me for my later professional life safely and stress-free."
