Working at Hilscher

Are you looking for a new challenge? Welcome to Hilscher!

We offer you opportunities and prospects in an internationally successful family run business. Within our organisation, you will develop new opportunities, design complex systems, products and processes as part of a team. You will bring your personality, your experience and your expert knowledge to our organisation. From these we will develop ideas for the future in the field of industrial communications together.

About us

Our more than 300 employees in Germany, Europe, the US and Asia work professionally and with enjoyment to ensure that our PC cards, gateways, OEM plug-in modules or ASICs are used by leading companies across the globe to communicate between automation devices and controls. Our many years’ experience and considerable innovation, combined with the team spirit of all our colleagues, have made us a world leader with our portfolio of solutions for fieldbuses and Real-Time Ethernet.
And it doesn’t stop there... We offer unique solutions for IoT communication from the sensor up to the cloud thanks to our new Industry 4.0 / Industrial Internet product range.

To effectively enhance our teams at the headquarters in Hattersheim am Main we are constantly on the look-out for employees in the following areas:


Development, Product Management & Service

As a solution provider and technology supplier we offer our customers tailored support from the initial product idea right through to the finished components. Our extensive portfolio with solutions for fieldbuses and Real-Time Ethernet networks based on our communication controller netX forms our most important unique selling point.
To realise the products, our team made up of more than 100 specialists in hard- and software development, product and project management, as well as test, documentation and service work closely together and, alongside standard products, also develop individual products based on our customers’ requirements.

At Hilscher you can expect a highly dynamic environment but also short communication and decision-making channels.  An ideal environment for all who want to advance their personal development with initiative and autonomy and realise their ideas.
On the one hand, we rely on experienced professionals whose expertise often plays a decisive role in advancing our company. On the other, we are also consciously offering motivated graduates the opportunity to start their careers and challenging responsibilities to develop their potential.

Sales & Marketing

Thanks to innovative strength, a high level of technological expertise and a consistent customer focus, we have acquired a global reputation for ourselves as a medium-sized, second-generation family-run business that is today considered one of the most successful companies in the sector.
Owing to a clear commitment to growth and agility, based on strong equity and significant investment in research and development, we are constantly extending our market position.
In Germany, our account managers support our customers directly; our area sales managers maintain the relationship with our international sales and service centres. The customer service centre forms our hub. This is where offers are prepared and all commercial processes on every aspect of sales are organised. The customers are also provided with technical support.
Marketing takes care of the organisation’s external image and ensures that Hilscher is able to offer its customers individual advice at all the important national and international trade shows within the sector.
We are looking for service-oriented and enthusiastic employees (m/f/d) who are happy to take responsibility and act autonomously to achieve our joint goals.

Manufacturing & Production “Made in Germany”

Hilscher products are sought after worldwide and are used at virtually every automation manufacturer and their suppliers.
“Made in Germany” is therefore not simply an empty phrase at our company. From assembling circuit boards with the help of SMD technology, through to assemblies and final installations, right through to exit and quality controls, at our company, all production steps are carried out in Hattersheim.
We therefore meet our customers’ requirements reliably with respect to quantities and product diversity, alongside the high expectations in terms of time-to-market and rapid response.
You can expect a position with security for the future in an exciting sector and a team-oriented working environment, where considerable importance is placed on reliability, fairness and respectful interactions.


All commercial aspects and central services are located in Hattersheim from purchasing to financial accounting, controlling, quality and environmental management, IT, human resources right through to reception & catering.
We value a sense of belonging, team spirit and interactions based on fairness and respect. We are committed to family-friendly, flexible working conditions and secure our jobs for the long term.
Working at Hilscher also means having the courage to embrace change, combined with the willingness to get involved. As part of our team in administration you can expect a dynamic and open working environment with flat hierarchies, in which work is fun and you contribute proactively to our joint success and as part of professional team work.

You will become part of the Hilscher family and therefore part of our more than thirty-year successful history.
