What's the role?

The Hilti IT Fellowship program was developed jointly by the Hilti Corporation and the University of Liechtenstein. It is a combination of practical training at Hilti and academic learning at the University of Liechtenstein, designed to enrich your education and boost your professional career.

All locations have highly competent teams who work very closely together. Hilti`s Global IT team is known for their focus on sustainable value creation by translating latest IT innovations into value creating solutions & services.

What does the role involve?

The Hilti fellowship contributes to your Master’s education in Information Systems or related fields as you attend relevant courses at the University of Liechtenstein. In parallel to your part-time studies, you will join an international project team in Hilti’s Global IT department and work on cutting-edge IT topics in the construction industry. Our fellows are exposed to the unique corporate culture of Hilti and enjoy a lifetime opportunity to work side by side with distinguished experts in the field and to contribute to Hilti’s digital ambitions.

We have interns exploring all the different aspects of working at Hilti HQ where student talents enjoy the opportunity of a lifetime by working alongside experts in the field and contributing to Hilti’s next innovation.

What do we offer?

Join over 3000 colleagues from over 70 nationalities at one of our Headquarter locations in Schaan, Nendeln (Liechtenstein), or Buchs SG (Switzerland) is more than a career move. It’s your opportunity to enjoy the energizing, alpine lifestyle - where Liechtenstein, Austria, and Switzerland seamlessly meet. It’s an unforgettable life change.

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.

Our IT team works in in close collaboration with its business stakeholders and each area is driving and supporting each other for a genuine successful outcome. You will have the opportunity to learn our processes, be part of a project and contribute to the overall success of it, drive improvements and get experience in the exciting finance world. You will be part of a global team and learn what it means to be part of the Hilti family.

  • Proven IT affinity and first practical experience in IT
  • Strong analytical and conceptual skills
