Director Enterprise Architecture


Bretten, DE, 75015

Division/Department:  Development
Experience:  Management

”Accelerating business to improve the lives of people”. This is our purpose statement and encapsulates what we enthusiastically do every day. We integrate our customers’ IT systems to make sure that the right data is at the right place at the right time when they digitalize their processes. Companies need their systems to talk to each other to ensure that cars roll off the factory line, that everyone receives their payments on time, and that you can buy what you need from a supermarket.

Our success story began in 1986, when we helped the German automotive industry to digitalize their paper-based supply chains. Today, SEEBURGER is a leading global B2B software provider with more than 1,000 #businessaccelerators in 15 countries worldwide and over 10,000 satisfied customers that rely on our innovative solutions.
