Team Hydro Digital Become part of Hydro 4.0

Since the pilot project "Hydro 4.0", our dynamic team has been growing continuously. And we are still looking for reinforcements.

We want to achieve goals and celebrate successes together. To do this, we need a lot of energy, innovative approaches and know-how. Will you play your part? We are looking for dynamic doers. The tasks are diverse and challenging: from application and solution engineering to product management, data engineering, data science and project management.

Over the coming years, we will expand our team with new colleagues who share an affinity for digital solutions, think in end-to-end processes and bring a strong customer focus to the table.

A passion for digital hydropower

Our team makes the operation and maintenance of hydropower plants more efficient. This includes end-to-end digital support for all work on the plants. Computer-aided analysis that detects changes in the status of our large machinery using sensor data is also part of the mix, as is the use of drones to obtain image material in hazardous or difficult to access areas. Finally, we bring together all the knowledge gained to enable data-driven decisions for maintenance, inspection and updates. This is how we are turning Hydro 4.0 from a vision into a reality. 

Our strategic directions


The Workforce team implements digital solutions that support our employees in the plants in the maintenance process. These include, for example, service technicians who process work orders for machine maintenance with software support or the digital provision of documents at any location in the power plant.

To ensure flawless operation, we offer internal support to advise and assist our employees in the hydropower plants. In addition, we are always on the lookout for new innovative ways to make work in the hydropower plants more digital -  so we can stay ahead of the game in the digital future.

Initiative, independent work, and the ability to get things done. With your connection to technology and IT and your broad experience in the implementation of software solutions, you cover the needs on the way to digital transformation in our hydropower plants. In doing so, you will benefit from your planning and organizational strengths. With your strong communication skills, you will be able to connect with our employees in the plants, who will be enthusiastic about working with the digital solutions you roll out.


Machine learning for real machines. In our models, we process the sensor data from 40 m high machines and detect changes in their behaviour. 

With each day, we are turning Hydro 4.0 into a reality.

Our team operates and develops solutions along the entire data science value chain. It begins with the data ingestion pipeline in the plant and ends with the resolved problems of our customers.

Do you have good ideas on how to scale up our data ingestion pipeline by a factor of 10? Or a plan for how customers can benefit from the data? Then you’re in exactly the right place with the Analytics team. 


Drones, diving robots and autonomous boats provide our employees with new possibilities and perspectives for inspecting and obtaining meaningful imagery.

Our solutions enable a hazard-free inspection of our infrastructure and its surroundings. The captured imagery and the models derived from it can be viewed by the expert or operations team at any time and without time pressure in the safe environment from the office. By automating the individual processes, the image information can be captured in a targeted and efficient manner as needed. To further optimize the solutions, the robotics@hydro pilot project is currently underway, which is dedicated to both the process of data acquisition and data evaluation.

We are looking for new employees who want to shape the future, push their ideas through to completion and are ready to work with others to create solutions in coordination with our plants and customers. If you have drive, curiosity and take pleasure in such a role, we can offer you electrifying challenges in the energising field of hydropower.

The people behind Hydro 4.0

Emil Bieri, Head Digital Transformation Hydro

"The future belongs to digital networking! After automation of our power plants, parts of which were more than 100 years old, digitalisation is now the next big step. Shaping the digital future of hydropower is my motivation to keep re-imagining and pushing the limits of what’s possible. Be inspired – never give up!"


Jürgen Krenn, Head Workforce Management

"Connecting traditional technology in our hydropower plants with new and innovative concepts, and working together as part of a talented and dynamic team with lots of creative freedom – that motivates me to give my best every single day. True to the credo: with a passion for digital hydropower."


Emanuel Joos, Head Data Science 

"With the help of state-of-the-art technologies in data science and data engineering, my team and I are developing digital solutions for the hydropower field. Confronted with interesting challenges in an agile and talented team and the fact that our work contributes to a more sustainable world motivates me to give my best every day."


Your path to Axpo

Together, we achieve ambitious goals and celebrate success. This requires know-how, experience and a dynamic environment. With us you will be part of a young and agile team with a central location in Baden (15min from Zurich HB). Our exchange within the team is respectful, open and direct. We also encourage our team spirit with joint activities outside the office.

Individual, personal and professional development is just as important to us as flexible work options and the freedom to contribute and successfully implement one's ideas. Because these factors drive our team forward. Results and progress are important, but so are trial and error. With us, you experience start-up groove in the environment of the long-term oriented energy industry. A contradiction? No! See for yourself.
