IT

Optimizing workflows, securing the future

Our applicants are always surprised when they discover how big HUGO BOSS’ IT division is. No one expects a fashion and lifestyle company to be employing more than 300 IT experts. This allows us to have a number of IT services in-house. Thanks to our size, we can offer prospective candidates a number of entry and development opportunities – along with varied daily tasks and exciting special projects. 

Responsibilities in IT

As one of the biggest central divisions at HUGO BOSS, IT has extensive duties and responsibilities. The division functions as a central service provider and is a partner in the introduction of new technologies. It provides services related to the whole value chain within the company, which it supports and accelerates digitally – from planning and designing new collections to selling our high-quality fashion and lifestyle products in our shops and stores.

At our headquarters and our subsidiaries around the world

As an IT expert you can start your career at our headquarters in Metzingen or join one of our global subsidiaries, which liaise closely with the central IT department at our headquarters. In addition to the adaptation and customization of standard applications, we also develop in-house solutions, especially when it comes to core processes. As an IT expert at HUGO BOSS you will work in close collaboration with other divisions and with our foreign subsidiaries, and get to demonstrate your skills and expertise in a dynamic and creative environment.

Right at the heart of the action

At HUGO BOSS, IT is not only a fundamentally important department that is responsible for a number of functions, it is also involved in almost all processes, new developments and future projects. Here are some examples: Project managers coordinate complex projects; consultants develop concepts in collaboration with the divisions and implement processes in IT systems; system engineers design global technology and operations concepts, and administer networks, servers and applications. In these and other positions you can apply your personal talents, working with a service- and solutions-oriented approach while driving your career forward.

A whole host of exciting topics

Our IT division is responsible for ensuring smooth digital processes, but it also promotes some major, exciting topics of its own within the company. We work intensively on cloud solutions, we create the digital conditions necessary for the workplaces of the future – such as working from home – and we are constantly optimizing all applications with regard to user experience and usability. If adjustments in the cash register and billing system are required, our IT division ensures an optimal SAP-compatible solution in close coordination with the specialist departments and subsidiaries. A number of the topics driven forward by IT creates new opportunities for the entire company. One good example of this is agile project management, which is often used in IT in the form of the agile development method Scrum and which puts the customer in focus.

Digitization at the point of sale and in the showroom

Our goal ist to provide the customer with an special shopping experience online. This includes optimized interlinking of offline and online services relating to presentation, purchasing, and ordering, as well as the collection or exchange of our premium products. In our exclusive digital showroom we can now display the complete collection digitally, which hugely simplifies and optimizes the global ordering process. 3D product development and virtual fitting rooms are also key future topics for IT because they help make an even better shopping experience for our customers.

Requirements in IT

Primarily, we are looking for specific specialist skills and expertise and for somebody who is interested in HUGO BOSS and its brands. IT is right at the heart of a dynamic business environment and works in close collaboration with other central divisions and subsidiaries. You should therefore never lose sight of the bigger picture, no matter what depth of detail your work calls for.

Your IT expertise is in demand

Thanks to the size of our IT department, we can offer a range of entry and development opportunities. Depending on the specific position, a corresponding subject-specific degree (IT, Business Informatics or courses involving significant IT or digital elements), knowledge of SAP, SQL, ADAP, and CRM, and professional experience will be required. You should have strong analytical skills and be able to draw the right conclusions from your analysis. You should approach your work with enthusiasm and commitment, show plenty of initiative, and work efficiently and with a focus on solutions. You should consider yourself as a partner within the company, with a great affinity for digital trends and consumer requirements. A good command of English will help you in our international environment, and is also required for many projects.

Enhance our diversity

We see ourselves as a modern, cosmopolitan company in which our employees work together in a constructive and solutions-oriented manner, transcending all boundaries relating to teams, divisions, nations and hierarchies. We believe that creating an atmosphere of tolerance, respect and cooperation is important. In this environment you can further enrich the diversity of our workforce with your own unique set of skills and talents – because that is the foundation of our success.
