Progress is par for the course. 

As an IT Specialist (Swiss VET) in Switzerland, you find a career that is just as multi-faceted as it is progressive. It comes as no surprise: digital technologies are part of our core competences. 

As an IT specialist (m/f), you can make a difference at RUAG. On the one hand, we are an international, diversified technology company with a cutting-edge digital infrastructure; we work agile and networked. On the other hand, many of our services are completely or partly of a digital nature. This does not just mean that nearly every technology field in which we operate, each jet, each satellite is solely computerised and connected to a high degree. It means that we develop and market industry-leading digital products and services in the areas of simulation and training, as well as cyber security. Which is why we need IT architects and software developers, system administrators and Web application developers, UX and interaction designers – in short, specialists of all kind – and place top priority on the high quality of our IT apprenticeship.
