Digital delivery hub in Lisbon.
Digital transformation concerns all companies: new services and expanded business models are developing at a hitherto unseen speed. This presents new challenges, particularly for the automotive industry, and thus also for Mercedes-Benz. In future, simply building the best cars will no longer be enough. That is why Mercedes-Benz is now opening its first global digital delivery hub in Lisbon. The Portuguese capital is increasingly establishing itself as the new “place to be” for the digital world: it is precisely here that Mercedes-Benz wishes to drive its future digital transformation from premium automobile manufacturer to premium mobility service provider.
Digital talent wanted.
The inauguration of the first digital delivery hub is a cause of great delight at the new location: during the inaugural celebration and press conference, many Portuguese government representatives will warmly welcome Mercedes-Benz’s digital delivery hub. In keeping with its CASE strategy that focuses on the four future fields Autonomous, Connected, Shared & Services and Electric Drive, with this newly-created, agile unit Mercedes-Benz will in future be launching new digital business models on the market. As of now, high-calibre talented individuals from all over the world will be rapidly developing solutions along the digital value chain. Mercedes-Benz is now seeking 125 digital experts for its location in Lisbon in the areas of software development, app programming, big data, cloud computing, Java, Java script and AEM development.
Mercedes-Benz becomes a main sponsor of Web Summit.
Lisbon is enjoying ever greater popularity on the digital scene: “digital natives” from all over the world are coming to live and work in the Portuguese capital. November will see the staging of what will already be the second Web Summit, the world’s most important tech conference. During the press conference for the inauguration of the digital delivery hub, Mercedes-Benz also has the pleasure of introducing its new cooperation with the Web Summit for the first time: the automobile manufacturer is one of the conference’s main sponsor and will be in attendance in November. The Web Summit is the ideal platform for connecting and inspiring!
An example is the PITCH startup competition at the Web Summit which was named one of the best startup competitions worldwide by Forbes. PITCH gives the world’s leading early-stage startups the chance to tell their companies’ stories and ideas to an international audience and distinguished judging panel.
