What's the role?

Are you interested to learn about technology management, lean and smart factory in a global manufacturing organization? We have an open intern or master thesis position for students in Global Manufacturing in Schaan (Liechtenstein). Help us to build up our technology management for our plants in Liechtenstein, Germany, Mexico and China, deploy the strategy together with the plants and push overarching topics like operational excellence. We offer you to write the master thesis in this topic or do an internship for 6 months or more. In doing so, you do an important step to develop your personal career.

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?

In Global Manufacturing, you will work on how to innovate in our global manufacturing organization and you will learn how to work with modern project management approaches (like scrum). Immerging in the implementation of the technology management system, you will contribute to improve our technology implementation process. You will have the opportunity to drive technology projects on your own. Therefore, you will work closely with international leaders and experts on a daily base. With your communicational and organizational skills, you will help us to coordinate our global technology management.

Additionally, you get the opportunity to write your master thesis within the context of your work.

CAREER - 80% of our entry positions at Headquarters are filled with interns. It’s testament to how much we value, develop and look after our people.

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.

What you need is:

  • Bachelor's degree and currently studying in a master’s program with a technical or industrial engineering background
  • Excellent communication skills: fluent in English, German is beneficial
  • Good Microsoft Office skills (Excel, Word, PowerPoint)
  • Enthusiasm to learn and drive to succeed
  • High commitment and self-responsibility

We take our time to get to know you. As part of your recruitment process, you’ll get to talk to your internship coach as well as your HR Manager who both can answer some of your burning questions.
