What exactly does a Citizen Developer at Continental do? For a long time, Excel lists were used to handle incident processing. Today, colleagues report safety and malfunction issues quickly and easily via an app. The upgrade is thanks to one of our Senior Compounders Chris along with Production & Plant Engineer Manager Steve, who together developed the app single-handedly. The remarkable thing here is, that neither Chris nor Steve are professional programmers nor work in IT. Instead, both also work as so-called Citizen Developers. This term refers to people with little or no programming experience who create applications using technologies approved and provided by Continental IT. If you are interested in becoming a Citizen Developer and you’re already part of Continental just contact the CLAP team.
