As an intern/ thesis student you will be based in the manufacturing department in the headquarter of Hilti in Schaan, Principality of Liechtenstein. Your responsibilities will cover leading and supporting different data science projects. We are application driven and apply machine learning algorithms and computer vision techniques to better understand our processes, predict machine failures, or automate quality inspections.

Start as soon as possible for a duration of 6 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 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 an intern in our department, you’ll be part of a competent and diverse team which operates in the consumables production.
You’ll work closely with our experts in Engineering, Development, Quality Management and Corporate Research to improve production processes through data science projects and take over your own projects within the whole manufacturing area of Hilti in Liechtenstein.

Your key responsibilities will be to support our data science activities to increase process stability, reduce manufacturing costs and improve the quality of our products. You will develop and implement solutions directly in our manufacturing processes and you will be given the freedom to try new approaches for developing and testing prototypes. You will be closely guided throughout your internship/thesis using an agile approach including daily meetings and regular feedback.

INNOVATION - This is the cutting edge of corporate innovation, where the pace is fast, fun, energetic and inspiring. As an intern in our manufacturing department you will get a holistic overview of industry process collaboration and teamwork.

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, and 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.
