Training at DERMALOG: What can you expect?


“Hi, I’m Jessica Dubberke. I joined DERMALOG in 2013, and might well soon be your Training Manager. After qualifying as an industrial clerk, I studied Business Management at the Northern Business School. My focus: Human Resources and Marketing. At the same time, I started working as a student trainee in our Human Resources team.

Over the years working at DERMALOG, I’ve been able to get to know the company very well and recognise those people who would be a good fit for us. Ensuring close ties between the training officers and the trainees themselves is particularly important to me.”

Training programme as an IT Specialist (IHK)

The choice between two different areas of specialisation makes this programme particularly interesting.

In application development, you’ll learn different programming languages, manage databases, and test out the written software. Biometric Processing is especially popular with our trainees. This refers to the department in which we biometrically record physiological characteristics, such as fingerprints, faces or the pattern of an iris. This work sets us apart from other companies.

System integration, on the other hand, oversees the internal IT infrastructure. You’ll set up hardware and software, take care of troubleshooting, and make sure that our network remains stable. The whole of our digital infrastructure, in other words the heart of the company, falls within your area of responsibility.
