Our client is an international company specializing in teleshopping and e-commerce. For more than 20 years, the company has stood in Germany for a unique and exciting shopping experience. Since 1996, they have also been represented in Germany and has locations in the USA, Great Britain, Japan, Italy, France and Poland as well as a joint venture in China. It employs around 21,400 people worldwide, around 3,000 of whom are based in e.g. Düsseldorf. The company inspires customers on 15 television channels, which reach around 380 million households, as well as eleven websites/apps and over 270 social media platforms.


Our client would like to transform itself into a "data-driven" company in the course of further digitalization and internationalization. In order to realize this plan, a new "Data Science & Engineering" unit is being established. A new department will be created, which will be closely linked to business, management and technology and offer extensive design and development opportunities.
