What's the role?
While joining our team calls for a technical mind-set, none of our engineering jobs is purely tech driven. Instead you’ll have a consultative role, where you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds – working in leading-edge innovation while building relationships with enthusiastic customers. Our engineers get involved from the early stage of a project, making the connection between a customer’s need and our product design, and then translating these things to marketing and sales. Many construction projects present unexpected challenges, where off-the-shelf products aren’t up to the job. So our field engineers work with clients and contractors to find custom made solutions, and then our R&D and software engineers skilfully develop them. At Hilti, you’ll get a lot of responsibility from very early on and, with consistent results, you could be leading your own team before you know it. All the time, you’ll be working in a vibrant culture with a diverse range of talent – unique in their ways but who share the same ambition to build a better future.
Who is Hilti?
If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. Hilti stands for quality, innovation and direct customer relationships resulting in about 250,000 individual customer contacts each day. Based in Schaan, Liechtenstein, the company has 30,000 employees around the world who contribute to making construction work simpler, faster and safer while inspiring customers every single day with technologically leading products, systems, software and services. Many ideas for improvements are developed directly on construction sites while talking to customers. If there is an on-site challenge for which no Hilti solution exists, one will be developed. This is why the company invests approximately 6 percent of sales each year in research and development.
With 30,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.
