Digital Competence, Information Systems

Hydro is a fully integrated aluminium company with 35,000 employees in 40 countries on all continents, combining local expertise, worldwide reach and unmatched capabilities in R&D. In addition to production of primary aluminium, rolled and extruded products and recycling, Hydro also extracts bauxite, refines alumina and generates energy to be the only 360° company of the global aluminium industry. Hydro is present within all market segments for aluminium, with sales and trading activities throughout the value chain serving more than 30,000 customers.

Hydro is not only a front-runner in aluminium products – we are at the frontline of Digital and Industry 4.0 as well. As a central actor in this development, our Information Systems organization is proving every day that digital solutions contribute to Hydro`s goal of becoming better, bigger and greener.

We established a digital initiative as a start-up in spring 2018, based on the Hydro digital strategy. Development of digital Proof of Concepts (PoC) has been carried out with emphasis on agile methodology and commercialization of digital products. The digital Proof of Concepts are fully business-driven, based on requests and initiatives coming from the business areas in Hydro.

As our product and service portfolio is growing, we are looking for creative talents to join our cross-functional teams, to contribute to this exciting story!
