We.OHB - Career as a space pioneer

I like the spirit at OHB

A career in space does not have to be a dream. OHB is constantly looking for new pioneers around the entire would and in all corporate segments.
Once a month on Wednesday OHB employees describe their own personal impressions of their “dream job” in space in our “We.OHB” series and under the hashtag #weohbwednesday.   

Part 5 with Project Manager for the Product Data Management System at OHB: I like the spirit at OHB

Why does a graduate in aerospace engineering at the University of Stuttgart come to Bremen? “Because OHB offers me a major advantage over other places in Germany in which space companies are based. Bremen is a very interesting and liveable city. And when I first started here, I found exactly the task that appealed to me because of the mix of technology and management elements,” is how Marek Dittmar answer. Aged 34 years, he has been with OHB for four and a half years and appreciates not only the company’s headquarters in the Hanseatic city of Bremen, but also the working atmosphere of this family-owned company: “I like the spirit and the open and solution-oriented way of working.”

At OHB, young people can quickly assume responsibility, says Dittmar, who has done precisely this himself. “As the project manager for our product data management system, I have the exciting task of guiding the company through the digital transformation and support product development to make it even more efficient.” He recommends all students and graduates in STEM subjects shortlist OHB as a potential employer. At OHB, it is possible to specialize in many different areas: “No matter whether it’s mechanical engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, materials science, industrial engineering or other similar courses of study, many different engineering disciplines are needed in space technology to achieve the extremely challenging project goals on a joint basis. That’s what makes the working environment here so exciting.”
