IT provides the basis for innovation

Bayer sees IT as a key technology. Digital processes and solutions are extremely important for many business processes – from research to sales. There are therefore challenging opportunities throughout the IT Community, i.e. in a wide variety of departments at Bayer AG, the CIO Office, in our divisions, service companies and country organizations.

Bayer's global alignment and organization means that an efficient, highly integrated and standardized global IT architecture is essential, along with specialized IT solutions tailored perfectly to users' needs.

IT specialists in more than 60 countries make sure that Bayer's global network runs smoothly and work on continuous improvements. They support and develop state-of-the-art IT solutions that are used to perform global business processes and plan, construct and operate complex production facilities. Research is another important area for IT specialists, for example, studies requiring large volumes of data and computer-assisted simulations. Last but not least, increasing digitization is constantly opening up new opportunities for proven IT experts in marketing, communications and sales.

IT know-how is required throughout the Bayer Group, at the holding company Bayer AG, the CIO office, in the divisions, service companies and country organizations. Although their work varies, they all have one thing in common: they need employees who focus on the benefits of technology for the company and users, rather than as an end in itself.
