Admittedly, at a discounter you don't think of state-of-the-art IT solutions first. But we at ALDI SOUTH IT take care of exactly that. Within the ALDI SOUTH Group, we are the IT service provider for the core business. Our IT is divided into national and international IT. While the national teams are responsible for all IT processes at the German level, our International IT always comes into play when at least two countries are affected by an IT solution. With 11 countries and over 6,980 branches, there is a lot to do. Learn more about ALDI SOUTH as an IT employer here.

Corporate principles

What we stand for – and what we expect

Seven words that mean a lot to us. Seven aspects that are indispensable at ALDI SOUTH IT:


When our customers go shopping, it should be a straightforward experience. We ensure this by offering a manageable selection of really good products – and an IT organisation that looks after the technological side of buying, logistics and POS systems. Clear structures, efficient solutions, reliable processes and user-friendly systems are all part of our secret to success.


We aim to provide the best value for money for our customers. They know that ALDI is where they get top quality products at top prices. And our IT is no different – we are always working to develop and improve our systems.


We don't just want our customers to be happy, we also want our 47,100 or so employees to be happy. After all, it is they who make ALDI a success. Everyone who works here is not just a member of staff, they are individual people. We support and help one another, and always find a solution. Just like in our IT department!


Why change something when it works well as it is? This is why! There's always room to make something more user friendly, more interconnected, or more efficient. Our mission is to make the company fit for the future. Our employees play an active role in this!


Knowledge is the software of working life – and we make sure your knowledge is up to date. Professional development within the company, further education, career progress: ALDI SOUTH promotes the development of each and every employee along their chosen career path – whether they're an apprentice, career starter, or experienced professional.


To ensure that our 6,980 stores in Germany, Europe, Australia and the US stay up and running, we have to be well organised. Clear structures don't just help to optimise processes within the company, they also provide orientation for our IT staff. If everything's ok at the backend, everything's ok at the front end!

Fair and cooperative

In Germany alone, a large number of employees work on our IT projects every single day. We are not the kind of IT department where everyone sits quietly writing code! Our open-plan offices mean your colleagues and other contacts are much closer than an e-mail away. Going to the kitchen to grab a coffee or a piece of fruit (both of which, incidentally, we provide free of charge to staff), ensures that you don't miss out on the personal contact that us humans need.


Working with ALDI SOUTH IT

Working in IT at ALDI SOUTH means one thing above all else: With our tradition behind us we actively shape the future of our group of companies . We do so with a lot of personal responsibility, creativity and foresight. Communication is particularly important to us. We value personal dialogue both within our immediate team and with other colleagues around the world – and together we find fast and efficient solutions. Friendly cooperation across hierarchies is second nature to us. And of course we don’t forget to have fun. Be a part of it!

Digitalisation in retail is in full swing and, naturally, for us this has also created new and exciting opportunities for change. Specifically, this means evaluating all our existing processes and systems and redeveloping them where appropriate. This is a mammoth task facing our International IT within the framework of the ///AHEAD project. Obviously, a project of this size involves many exciting initiatives where you, as a part of something truly great, can come into play.
