We are currently working on an evolution of our global process framework. Value stream-oriented project work and gate decision making based on risk and product maturity were identified and considered as disciplines that help to improve overall productivity in our innovation projects.
You will be responsible for promoting and aligning Agile@Hilti, an initiative to improve collaboration and accelerate go-to-market, across all business units and corporate functions.
Start date is flexible to the student's availability, duration for 3-6 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 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?
As intern in our department you’ll be part of the Product Portfolio Management department. In PPM we conceive and align processes, methods and tools from a corporate perspective to achieve a global optimum in productivity. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop and finetune our agile hardware development framework that will shorten our innovation cycles even further.
Your key responsibilities will be to promote the agile hardware development process in the organization, collect differences and identify global best practices. Furthermore, you will support in various strategic initiatives driven by our PPM team.
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.

- Prior exposure to hardware development and corresponding innovation processes
- Advanced PowerPoint and Excel skills
- Autonomous and pro-active working style
- Strong communication skills, with excellent English and interpersonal skills
