Our mission is to democratize data and enable Line of Business to become more data-driven. We are part of Digital Delivery in Global IT, and we support Lundbeck’s full value chain from early research, to development, production, sales, and supporting functions.


Lundbeck offers a great workplace that is based on a flat structure, forming a collaborative working environment based on respect and equality. We employ dedicated colleagues and encourage continuous development. Together, we create the ideal conditions for you and your job, so we can create better conditions for patients. Together, we are creating a brighter future for people living with brain diseases. That is our promise to each other and to the world.
