If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.
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.
What does the role involve?
As a student worker in our team you will be part of our development team working on the innovative products of tomorrow.
Precast is one answer to reducing construction industries carbon footprint and increasing its productivity. Precast and with it cast-in solutions are increasingly used in virtually planned buildings and are supported by construction megatrends such as BIM. As part of our team your task is to convert market needs to cost efficient and outperforming product features, from the very first ideas over first prototypes to a final product. You will be rethinking our products monitoring latest trends in manufacturing technologies, assessing improvement potentials in terms of performance, cost and functionality. This includes creating designs and ideas in CAD, presenting and iterating ideas with our market interface, verifying the producibility with our production experts and proving the performance in lab tests.
INNOVATION - We invest more than 5% of our turnover every year in exploring new solutions in diamond systems, measuring tools, firestops, anchors and other fastening systems.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You’ll enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and camaraderie, as you’ll manage your own project while being part of a friendly team.
You’ll not just be another pair of hands but a fully integrated team member with lots of self-responsibility. From there, we’ll trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Go the extra mile and we’ll reward you with strategic development discussions and career opportunities.
We’ll support you even before you start with us through relocation and integration support. With the international interns community at Hilti you’ll never be bored.
