Arvato opens new IT location in Münster

In the former Phone House building at 109 Münsterstrasse in Münster Wolbeck, Arvato is poised to further expand its digitization services in the region. The new location's proximity to the university and surrounding institutions of higher education will help further Arvato's objective of strengthening its collaborative efforts and implementing joint projects with talented young students while they are still in training. While the complexity of business processes multiplies, Arvato SCM Solutions is increasingly focusing on providing smart, IT-driven services. To achieve this objective, Arvato is actively recruiting to fill jobs with a variety of IT profiles, including software developers and IT project managers.

Two divisions of Arvato SCM Solutions will be creating around 40 jobs on 430 square meters of state-of-the-art, open-plan office space. The emphasis will be on business intelligence and the digitization of business transactions for high-profile customers in the automotive industry. Agile development methods and the application of cutting-edge technologies such as virtual and augmented reality lend the site an "Innovation Lab" character.

The groundbreaking new location will be under the leadership of Boris Scholz, Member of the Management Board and Philipp Klapper, Chief Information Officer. According to Scholz: “As a university town, Münster has always been of great interest to us. Many of our colleagues hired at other locations hail from Münster. This makes us all the more pleased to have found the ideal location with excellent infrastructure and the ability grow into the future.” “I hope we'll be able to welcome the first engaged and motivated students to our team at the opening ceremony,” adds Klapper.
