According to the entrance level and personal ambitions you can expect different ways to position yourself within the company. We try to find suitable developing and career perspectives for all employees. Whether as group / project manager in the software development or as a Senior Consultant in the consultation – there are varied chances to develop personally and professionally.
Beside the usual career paths, e.g., from a junior software developer to a senior developer and/or project manager, GIP offers another exclusive perspective: the membership in the GIP Research Institute as a Research Fellow.
The Research Fellows are a small, exclusive circle of well-chosen employees which work, beside their “usual” project operations, at the GIP Research Institute. They are characterized by a far above-average engagement and special abilities and/or knowledge which they use for the realization of our vision of a connected world.
Therefore the Fellowship is a special career perspective, because it does not orientate at “usual” scales of leading positions. Thus, e.g., no qualification for team management is necessary.
Our company culture is characterized historically and academically by the high percentage of university graduates. We focus on independent and individual advanced training which is requested and promoted by the company (e.g., in the form of magazine subscriptions or book orders).
In addition, there are internal university trainings on different subjects, as for example “Basics of telecommunication” or “methods of process modeling”.

According to your entrance level, your current work experience and your state of knowledge you take over suitable tasks and become acquainted with the professional life at GIP.
