What does Career Compass offer you?

Through Career Compass, you will be employed directly in a junior role from which your learning path will begin, depending on your level. This is not a training program, but your professional skills will grow as you work on projects. Depending on your role, you will be working either on our customer projects or on internal development.

In Career Compass pay is equal for each new person, and as a result, we guarantee a minimum monthly wage of €2,500 for all technical roles. However, the average for those who started in 2022 through Career Compass, was higher as the starting salary is determined by competence, role demand, previous experience, and study phase. As a Digian you have access to our comprehensive employee benefits. Learn more about the benefits we offer here.



Support is important and we offer comprehensive onboarding, as well as onboarding buddy and from your supervisor. In addition, you will be part of a talent community of almost 1,400 people in Digia, where, among other things, they will enable you to learn from more experienced colleagues during working hours and share your own expertise with others. 

All roles are full-time or fit for part-time, depending on your situation, and the start can be scheduled for spring 2023. We offer flexibility in working hours, to support your studies, so please indicate on your application how much would suit you best. Especially in the beginning, you should be ready to work at least 3 days a week. Hybrid working is also possible in several roles after orientation, as the people in Digia work in a hybrid environment. 


Career Compass Get together

In the spring of 2022, we hosted the Career Compass Get Together event, where the people from Digia, who started in 2022, got to know each other and network together. The day included things like getting to know career paths in Digia, career stories from other people and tips for professional development. The rest of the day was spent in more relaxed surroundings in escape rooms, on a brewery tour and with good food, drink and of course, great company.
