The spirit of a startup at one of Germany's largest family-run businesses? A contradiction? Certainly not: At Oetker Digital we support our group companies in shaping their digital agenda and share our competence to pursue the digital future of the Oetker Group. We have a deep understanding of emerging trends and help to develop new business fields. Our ambitious goals will lead us and our group companies along exciting paths!


At Oetker Digital, our engineering team is at the core of transforming strategy and product discovery to consumer products.

As Head of Engineering, you build and guide the entire development chain for our respective technology products. You will be providing technical direction and ongoing leadership for the engineering department and build a top-class team of technologists.


Head of Engineering

Your Future:


As the Head of Engineering you will work closely with engineering team leads in developing the engineering culture and people, create teams that are both autonomous in their approaches and accountable to their results. You work closely with product managers and designers to create world-class digital products in collaboration with our group companies. You own the setup of our technological infrastructure and architectural decisions.

You will plan the technical development and establish the technical vision that guides all aspects of technological development.

You will manage product staffing to enable the successful development of products as well as the personal development of members of the engineering team.

You will take the lead with a profound understanding of new and relevant technologies when discussing the right setup for each product – coaching teams to make the best decision given the information they have.

You will lead the recruiting activities of the engineering department; you will mentor key engineering personnel, continually promoting the growth of their professional skills, readying team members for career growth.

You will ensure the technical operations both for our engineering teams as well as Oetker Digital in total.

You will support make-or-buy decisions both on the level of individual software packages but also for entire business as part of M&A activities.

Your Strengths:


Leadership experience for technology teams in an international environment - strong experience managing from 20 employees upwards

Degree in Computer Science or a related discipline or extensive work experience – passions to apply your experience yourself as much as coaching others to be successful

Excellent communication/collaboration skills – ability to explain modern development methodologies to non-technology managers

Proven success in execution – driving teams to create something quickly and keep iteration going

Our Promise:

At our new Berlin office in Friedrichshain, you will pursue greenfield, customer-centric projects with impact on the Oetker Group both domestically and internationally. We invite you to voice your ideas and explore new paths, in an open-minded, motivated, team-oriented environment.

Our core values reflect those of a family-run business, and as such we are committed to investing in you, your personal and professional development.

Interested? Become part of our team and shape the future of the Oetker Group!
