Global Technology Manager (m/w/d) Joining
What's the role?
In this multifaceted role, you will be responsible to manage joining technologies within Hilti. With a global view, you are in the driver seat to foster welding, brazing and gluing technologies as well as to integrate new joining technologies in given infrastructures. Working in diverse teams, the connection between the plant landscape and the development departments is just one important aspect in your role.
Who is Hilti?
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. 30,000 people in more than 120 countries generate annual sales of more than 4.3 Mio. CHF and an operating result of almost 550 Mio. CHF, constantly growing. We’re a great place for you to show us your worth as you learn, grow and carve-out your career.
What does the role involve?
Joining processes become a key technology in terms of differentiation by enabling function-optimized and hybrid parts. Following this trend, many technologically complex applications in the Hilti portfolio exist. To be prepared for development trends and technological substitutes, your central task is to manage existing and upcoming joining technologies in both, tool (e.g. rotary hammers, saws) and insert (e.g. drill bits, chisels, cutting discs) applications.
In this role you will evaluate existing technologies and classify these into a holistic approach to identify synergies for the technologies and their application in Hilti products. As a central position, you will define crucial future (joining) technologies, describe their use cases and foster a reliable network to generate relevant knowledge within Hilti. In close collaboration with the business units, you will consult and support the product development project teams. The technological feasibility and economical questions - such as make or buy decisions - must therefore be weighed in balance. Together with the project teams, you will represent the topics in various steering committees.
