Lufthansa Technik is opening a new location in Valencia, Spain, on 1 July for its ‘AVIATAR’ digital solutions suite.
The MRO company said the expansion was necessitated by high demand for digital products, with Valencia chosen because of its rising tech company ecosystem and the fact there are many universities there.
By the end of 2022, an initial team of up to 20 IT experts will be working in Valencia on data-driven applications ranging from predictive maintenance to automated fulfilment solutions, Lufthansa Technik said.
In order to ease its landing and effectively connect with the local business network, AVIATAR has partnered with the Invest in Valencia Office, a joint initiative of the City Council of Valencia and the Official Chamber of Commerce acting as a facilitator and connective link to the city.
AVIATAR Valencia staff will work collaboratively with their counterparts at the headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, Lufthansa Technik added. Agile software development is applied across the entire organisation and each employee is directly assigned to a product.
A recruitment process for experienced full-stack developers and software architects is underway, with data scientist roles and junior positions in further disciplines available later this year. All positions are published at https://www.be-lufthansa.com/en/search?q=valencia.
