Career. Vocation. Where Do You Feel More at Home?

The sales department at PI is as versatile as the company itself. It includes Global Account Management for supporting key customers, eCommerce, Sales Operations for controlling and developing sales processes and systems, and Field and Technical Sales.

The sales department is the interface between our customers and development engineers, product specialists from our international development locations as well as our subsidiaries and distributors. From technical advice on direct enquiries in pre- and after-sales, management tasks in larger projects to relationship management and market and competition monitoring: The objective is to secure existing business and acquire new business in order to achieve sustainable growth together with customers.

The sales team at PI sees itself as a communicative all-rounder with great technical know-how, distinct strategic business expertise and approach, high assertiveness, and empathy.

Marketing has a clear target and is never an end in itself. PI Marketing & Communication has clearly defined targets ‒ and this is what we are working towards together. Our Marketing & Communication team works closely together with the Strategic Marketing and Sales teams. We rely on relevant content and focus on digital media and virtual channels mixed with classic touchpoints such as trade fairs and conferences.

Whether you are a career changer or have learned your trade from scratch is not the most important criterion. Because: In marketing, we rely on the special qualifications, skills, and the high commitment of each individual.
In short: You are curious by nature? Do you take an unusual approach to problems and like to think outside the box? Can you inspire people – and do you put your words into action? Then you are a perfect match for us!

As a globally oriented IT department, we and our teams accompany our employees all over the world on the way to digitization. Continuous optimization of internal systems and IT solutions are as natural for us as the introduction of new technologies. In this way, we reduce process errors and accelerate the handling of working together throughout the company.
Our key to success are the many IT specialists with the ability to develop solutions together, and the drive to constantly support each other. And our drive to achieve or even exceed our ambitious targets.

Creativity, endurance, and reliability are important building blocks for our work when solutions are not necessarily obvious. You have the chance in our IT department to become part of a motivated team and support us with your above-average commitment.

We love the challenges that our customers and we present ourselves. After all, nothing less than technological leadership is at stake. PI technology enables our customers to stand apart from the competition. We develop close to the market, which we need to understand in order to differentiate ourselves. At the same time, we are proficient in our technologies in order to technologically counteract or even trigger market disruption. This gives us a foothold with customers who, on their side, make the highest demands on their own operations.

In order to be in a position to live up to our claim, the development work is structured in many different ways. There is already quite a lot on our roadmap. Curious? Then you are exactly right!

Research: We do research on trend-setting control concepts and magnetic levitation – cooperating with renowned international institutes, together with our customers and of course, from our own motivation for innovation, which is part of our DNA here at PI.

Patent system: Protecting and securing ideas against piracy is a key factor in PI's development work as a pioneer.

Design: Market-oriented or customer-specific designs are the focus of our development work.

Sensor technology and guides: Precision is not achieved by the drive alone. How do we overcome the limitations of conventional system components available on the market? Do it ourselves!

Motion control: The mechanical design provides only one component of a functional system. The others offer the software as a customer or system interface as well as electronic control. Mechatronics at its finest, made by PI.

The central task of industrial engineering is to design, ensure and optimize smooth, timely and efficient workflows within the production process – a process that must meet both our high quality standards and the highest demands of our customers. Team spirit, a purposeful and methodical way of working and communicative and solution-oriented action are therefore at the forefront of the everyday work of our PI engineers. Industrial engineering at PI is divided into different areas – and we are looking for professionals for all of them.

Whether measuring and manufacturing technology engineering, which is quasi the "development department" for the production area, or data engineering. Whether quality assurance engineering to define and monitor production processes in terms of quality or fractal engineering, which designs and monitors the manufacture of our mechatronic products with regard to process stability, low manufacturing costs and short throughput times and also ensures a smooth production process.

In which engineering field are you a professional and professionally at home?

As a team from the human resources department, we do not see ourselves as just administrators of files and paper, but as a partner at the side of every employee ‒ for all questions and concerns regarding the cooperation of people in a company. In doing so, we build on a climate of trust and, together with our employees and teams, lay the foundations for development. We provide comprehensive advice and information in order to get each individual on course for a successful career.

And that's the reason why we are looking for energetic HR professionals who want to get things moving. For the company, for the customers, but naturally also for the executive staff and employees at PI. Professionals who can be persistent, have bite and experience, and are experts. HR professionals who always know how to balance interests, concerns, opinions, experiences, and moods. And we see ourselves as a neutral point of contact – sometimes thinking in the short-term, sometimes with long-term prospects. And therefore push the company further forward – with the employees, by the employees, and for the employees.

Do you also want to change the world? to make it a little better or more interesting? Good! Because it's people like you that matter. Whether for highest purity and accuracy classes or in series production: the awareness of precision and quality is the key. Our customers use the components they have manufactured – to fly to Mars, photograph black holes, make the latest generation of tablets, do blood analysis, build and test miniature camera systems. To network the world to build the smallest and most powerful microchips... Not bad, right?

From low-priced high-tech modules to highly complex multi-axis systems with in-house electronics and control, all made by PI. Each production fractal is a self-sufficient cell in production with its own purchasing and engineering, with key figures and measurands that reflect the goals of overall production.

Are you enthusiastic about technology, enjoy working with others in a team, and like to face challenges together? Do you want to do your part in changing the world?

Supply Chain Management controls the processes surrounding material procurement, provision, and transport – we implement the highest requirements of our customers with respect to quality, scheduling and speed, and attach great importance to sustainability and high standards in our company as well as in the supply chain. We develop long-term partnerships with our suppliers, we organize the material in excellent quality at the required date, and we guarantee safe transport of the materials and products.

For this purpose, we need people in our teams who are motivated and have the ambition to use and expand their expertise in a targeted manner.
