INTERN - CUSTOMIZED SEALING SYSTEMS
What's the role?
Within your role you support a product related project in our competence area of tribology and in close collaboration with our R&D staff. Tribology is one of Hilti’s key competences to ensure outlasting and outperforming Hilti products. Your role is to investigate sealing systems and to analyze their behavior on specifically designed tribological test equipment. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to contribute with your ideas to our future sealing concepts.
Duration: at least 3 months
Who is Hilti?
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 some 28,000 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?
You will support our tribology team in developing and testing sealing systems for Hilti tools, which are operating under extremely harsh conditions. Your responsibility will not just be planning, but also the preparation and execution of sealing performance tests. During this internship, you will also be involved in the development loops with our suppliers and R&D engineers.
Together with your team, you will be responsible for interpreting and presenting achieved results in different meetings. At the end of your stay, your findings must be documented in form of a technical report.
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. Further, the snow-draped mountains, crystal-clear lakes and marvelous landscapes in the Happy Valley invite for lots of outdoor activities.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team.
So, if you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.
