Who is Hilti?

For the sixth time in the past 11 years, Hilti has been named one of the best employers by Great Place to Work.

What began as a family business in 1941, founded by brothers Eugene and Martin Hilti, has become a leading industry player with over 120 locations worldwide and a workforce of more than 32,000 colleagues. Our incredible journey, from humble beginnings to a global powerhouse, is a shining example of the rewards of a hard-working and dedicated team.

At Hilti, we provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software, and services for the global construction industry and beyond. Our purpose is making construction better based on a passionate and inclusive global team and a caring and performance-oriented culture.

We invest a substantial amount of our annual profit to the Hilti Foundation, which focuses on initiatives that empower people to live independently and autonomously, contribute to building stronger societies, and create networks of competent partners to achieve sustainable and scalable impact.

What does the role involve?

As an intern, you'll join our dynamic interdisciplinary battery team, where you'll dive into cutting-edge lithium-ion battery technology. In this role, you'll collaborate closely with our battery experts in cloud analytics, performance evaluation, and system integration. Your mission? Analyze real-world battery data from the field, quantifying performance of our new NURON battery platform. You'll also lend your support to our battery testing team, conducting lab experiments to further explore this exciting field.

Interns play a pivotal role within our battery team, and their contributions often lead to exciting opportunities for career growth within the team or the company. One such success story is that of Jonathan, a former team member who initially joined as an intern and made a significant impact through his brilliant project. His dedication and interest eventually led him to pursue a master's project in collaboration with us. The journey didn't stop there, as Jonathan recently embarked on a PhD program at ETH University in Zurich, where he continues to work on advancing our battery technology to enhance our NURON battery platform.
