Training at MAPAL
Philipp Rottenbiller explains what inspired him to start an apprenticeship as an IT specialist in application development.
The best possible work experience takes place behind the scenes at the company's headquarters in Aalen, near Stuttgart in southern Germany. As a trainee in IT application development, Phillip sup-ports his co-workers at MAPAL with their technical work.
"Whether it's software packages, programming or problem resolution in IT support: I love the broad spectrum of tasks that I'm being offered in this job", reports Philipp, who is impressed by his varied work in IT Client Management.
While being at secondary school in 2018, he became interested in a career as a cutting machine operator and even completed a one-week work placement at MAPAL. He's known about the company for a long time, as one of his relatives also works here. When he learnt his first programming language (Python) two years ago, it quickly became clear to him which direction he wanted his career to go in. "What fascinates me about programming is how you are presented with challenges first and then the job turns into finding solutions. For me, IT is the future. In programming, you can do almost anything as well as also achieve almost anything", he says, justifying the reasons behind his decision.
