Life at Siemens

377,000 of the smartest minds

People at Siemens are thinkers, dreamers and doers. That’s why we recruit people with more than just a passion for disruptive ideas – they must also have the courage to bring them to life.

We believe those ideas can come from anywhere. It’s how we design and implement over 7,600 different inventions around the world each year. Some emerged from our 36-hour hackathons, others were simply thought of while sitting outside in our cafe. There’s no working behind closed doors here. We invite everyone to work collaboratively and act as if Siemens were their own company – it’s all part of our Ownership Culture.

Trying out new things, not always waiting for instruction, having your own thoughts about what you’d do differently. That shapes the future and drives it forward.
