  • Two or three interviews to get to know each other
  • Completion of a case study to apply experience and knowledge in practice

Onboarding

Your onboarding (whether remote or on-site) is a high priority for us, as a well thought-out and professional induction will help you to quickly find your feet both professionally and within the company. You will receive a START@PLATH package (Welcome Package) from us, consisting of the most important information and documents for the start as well as your individual induction plan, which also serves as a checklist and provides you with an overview of the content to be learnt during the first six months.

You will be accompanied by a mentor throughout the entire induction period, who will provide you with advice and support.  

You will take part in initial CAMPUS@PLATH training courses to familiarise yourself with the basic topics of our industry and technology and get to know colleagues in your future interface areas.

Talent Talks and personal development plans, PE(P)

Regular joint meetings in the management circle together with the HR department on the topic of personnel development in their own team (Talent Talks) serve as an exchange platform to supplement the perception of the individual team members with that of their management colleagues and thus broaden the perspective accordingly. In this way, the most objective view possible of the individual strengths, competences and, of course, the professional development aspirations of each employee is guaranteed at all times. Over the course of the year, regular discussions between managers and employees serve to monitor and review the development plan and supplement it with useful measures such as training and coaching.

Leadership

If you work for us in a management role, you will automatically be included in our LEADERSHIP programme. As part of this programme, our managers - regardless of whether they are new or have been in this role for some time - receive regular support in the form of individual support and development meetings as well as joint workshops and training sessions. Various key topics such as dialogue management, team development and conflict management are addressed in this context and worked through in a solution-oriented manner.

The trusting and constructive dialogue between management colleagues and the associated ability to look beyond their own horizons enable networking that extends beyond departmental and company boundaries, which is extremely valuable for successful collaboration - not just for the individual manager, but for the entire PLATH Group.

FAQ

With us, you will find passionate, open-minded colleagues with a broad spectrum of academic backgrounds, different work experiences, perspectives and ways of thinking and from 13 nations. They all bring valuable professional experience that they can bring to the table.  

Our professionals (both experienced and managers) have typically gathered technical knowledge from various fields, as our sophisticated high-end technology requires a certain level of expertise. Our successful managers at PLATH include, for example, graduates or PhDs in physics, mathematics, computer science or electrical engineering/communications engineering.

In most cases, our juniors already have initial experience in the respective fields of work - be it through internships, working student activities and/or other work phases. They are characterised above all by a thirst for knowledge and ambition, as they do not hold back with their questions and ideas.

Excellent written and spoken German is a prerequisite for working with us, as our corporate language is German. A very good to good knowledge of English is also essential in all areas.

You can simply apply online. If you have any questions about your application, please get in touch with the relevant HR contact person.

We will of course reimburse your travelling expenses. After the interview, please send us the original receipts for your travel expenses, stating your bank details.

If you can only travel by plane, we will reimburse the cost of the flight in the cheapest economy class.
