CAREER STORIES

Our product and service portfolio is just as diverse as the spectrum of professions and the projects that await you at Klöckner & Co SE – either at our Headquarters in Duisburg or at any of our locations.

Take a look at what employees at our country organizations and the holding company have to say about their work and professions at Klöckner:

RAMI RIHAWI

Junior Software Developer, kloeckner.i, Berlin


"At kloeckner.i we develop platforms for ordering steel online. I do something important because I build the platforms as a backend developer. The technologies we work with at kloeckner.i are very advanced. Being here and being able to work with such great people makes me happy. I think we're more than just colleagues."
Rami Rihawi had to flee his hometown of Aleppo in Syria and came to Germany in September 2015. With the help of an app he taught himself the German language and came into contact with our digital daughter kloeckner.i through our partner ReDI-School, a programming school for refugees. After a successful internship kloeckner.i hired Rihawi and employs him since then as a platform developer. In the video he shows the offices of kloeckner.i and talks about a very special guest.

DR. STEFAN SIMON

Head of Logistics Processes, Performance & Network, Kloeckner Metals Europe GmbH, Duisburg

"Klöckner gives me the chance to use my strengths and knowledge – and to live out my special interests, especially in strategic logistics projects. Working with my colleagues, whom I get to know and respect through projects that transcend hierarchical levels and national boundaries, is also a great source of inspiration. It’s just as exciting and challenging to put the more theoretical, strategic findings into practice and bring the success of these concepts to life."
