IT Specialist in System Integration

System integrators at LANCOM

As an IT specialist for system integration, you deal with complex IT problems at LANCOM and our customers. You help to reconstruct customer systems and identify errors there. You will then develop your own solutions. You will also support us in the procurement, installation and maintenance of equipment. This training involves less programming and more operational error reconstruction and solution finding.

Three important qualities

  • independent solution finding
  • interest in technology
  • diligence

Between vocational school and working life

At vocational school, you will learn important basics, such as how a network or databases works, and various programming languages and techniques. But also social science subjects like German, English, Economics and Politics are part of it.

We don't just have an IT department that you get to know during your apprenticeship. We are a company that specializes in IT and can demonstrate this competent expertise in all areas of the company. You will benefit from this in particular when you get to know the various departments during your apprenticeship. In addition to in-house IT and support, you will also get to know the work in product marketing, purchasing and quality assurance.

Comments from our trainees

"Expanding from small to large enterprise networks, we work with new challenges every day to best prepare for digitization."

  • passion for technology

Between vocational school and working life

In addition to social science subjects such as German, English, Economics and Politics, you will attend technology-specific subjects at vocational school. In these you will learn, for example, what a cloud is and how it works. You will also learn different programming languages, code structures and how application development works. During your weekly days at the company, you will then deal extensively with our networks and their optimization.

You will be actively involved in the daily tasks of the cloud. Your tasks will be based on your skills and knowledge, and if you have any questions, the whole team will be there to help you. With us, everyone is a full team member whose opinion and knowledge are taken into account when ideas and decisions are made.

You will also gain cross-functional experience and be involved in different departments.

Three important qualities

  • Independence
  • Courage to be creative

University and working life

You will be integrated into all processes and areas. We take your skills and interests into account to create a productive space for you and support you accordingly.
