About the employer


Welcome to Hilti. Our leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services power the global construction industry, including some of the world’s most ambitious feats of engineering. To deliver these innovative solutions to our customers, we’re looking for dedicated, high-performing people to join our team.

We have a unique working culture, made up of people from different backgrounds with a shared commitment to exceptional customer engagement. It’s a dynamic and fast-paced place to work, where success relies on teamwork and we challenge you to push boundaries. There’s a distinct vibrant energy that you can’t help but feel.

We employ 30,000 people in more than 120 countries. From our strong and prosperous position, we’re looking to reinforce our market leadership in the next few years. To do this, we’re seeking high-performing people with the excellence and drive to take Hilti forward. Could you be one of them?


Hilti was founded in 1941, and evolved from a small family company to the trusted global business we are today.

Our aim is to build a better future. By this we mean helping our customers to build faster, safer and with more daring, while all the time being mindful of the legacy we leave behind. We want to be proud of the mark we make on the world.

To ensure the integrity of our products, we run our own production plants and cutting-edge research and development centers right across the world. Our head office is in Schaan in the Principality of Liechtenstein, where Martin Hilti established the company 75 years ago. 


“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.”


Christoph Loos

It’s about solving problems, and these manifest themselves in many different ways. So we often custom make our solutions to meet our customers’ precise needs, and this is what drives us to be the innovators we are.

Everything we make is researched and designed by Hilti. So you’ll always know it’s a product you can be proud of.


Our tools and solutions are used every day on construction sites around the world.
