The Medienhafen is home to numerous companies, mainly from the fields of media and communication, fashion and architecture, as well as art and culture. The harbor owes its special charm to the mix of “old and new”: the old quay walls, the steps and rail tracks of the old loading line have still been preserved and are classified as historical monuments. The perfect location to start your career in tech.
Düsseldorf is one of the biggest tech hubs in Germany, and this incredible boom has brought with it a higher attention on Data. Big corporations such as Henkel are relying on Data Analysts to help optimize supply chains and increase profits. This is just the start.
While Düsseldorf might seem flooded with tech talent already, the truth is there are new jobs sprouting up left and right. Only in 2021, we saw more than 20.000 open positions in those fields and we expect the number to grow only further in the next few years.
Düsseldorf has a history of creativity in fashion, design and art. Artists and the community they formed drove this one-of-a-kind city into a new age of development and growth. In turn, these communities have formed effective lobbies to promote their spaces, rights and events. Within this affordable, safe, inclusive and collaborative atmosphere, the UX/UI sector has exploded and helped push Düsseldorf to become one of the top startup hubs in Europe.
Düsseldorf’s massive UX/UI ecosystem is also home to hundreds of meetups and work-groups that gather in all manner of spaces and formats to focus on the bleeding edge of the sector. The constant conversation has led to more hands-on events.
The BMBF has provided funding of around €66 million for projects in IT security since 2009 and supports innovative procedures and technologies to protect IT systems where data protection plays an important role from attack and unauthorized access.
There are 5 different hubs gathered all over Germany, plus 6 Institutes for Cybersecurity, and a promising landscape that keeps growing in the innovative software and cybersecurity solutions environment, helping to consolidate Germany's position as Europe's leading software market.
Over the last two years we have learned that both studying and working remotely are here to stay. In the digital sector, we can be more productive and reduce the commuting to physical spaces. Technology keeps improving the way we work and learn in the digital sector. However, there is an undeniable human aspect that helps us connect with others and grow with our communities. As part of these changes, there are new approaches to learning where students can use the best tools for online development, while being able to interact with fellow students, hiring companies, and fellow professionals.
Having trained more than 10,000 tech professionals over the last 8 years, Ironhack is now in Düsseldorf, offering fully remote bootcamps for anyone in the region, while establishing a hub to help those in-person interactions come to life. Our first hybrid campus in Germany is now open to provide this community approach and open its doors to aspiring tech professionals. Together with our hiring partners, as DKV Mobility, we’re helping people to transform their lives. This is an exciting time to start your journey in tech.
