We introduce ourselves

Hilti stands for quality, innovation and direct customer relations with around 250 000 contacts per day. 30,000 employees worldwide contribute to making work on construction sites easier, faster and safer - and to inspiring customers anew every day. With products, system solutions, software and services that offer superior added value. Ideas for improvements often arise directly on site in discussions with customers. If there is no Hilti solution for a challenge, it is developed. To this end, the company with its headquarters in Schaan, Liechtenstein, invests around 6 percent of its turnover in research and development every year.

It’s how we find the right fit and further our teams personally and professionally.

Executive management comment

“If at first glance you think this industry lacks sparkle, I urge you to get to know us better. You’ll quickly discover that, at Hilti, we’re anything but traditional. In fact, our whole ethos is about doing things differently – from our pioneering products to our innovative sales and marketing methods through to the way we treat our people.

Our drive to outperform is matched by a deeply caring culture, where we take time to really listen to our team members, encourage them to challenge things and develop their careers at every turn.

After all, today’s generation expects new things from its employers, so we relish the opportunity to make ourselves an exciting, progressive and nurturing place to work
