Be there when your future truly begins.

Career entry opportunities

As diverse as our company itself are the opportunities for coming aboard tailored to your expertise and career goals. We offer job opportunities for students via practical traineeships, on-the-job placements or subjects for dissertation theses, apprenticeships in technical and commercial fields and, of course, direct entry into all areas of our company.

From school directly into practical experience

The German sites of First Sensor have acted as training centers for commercial and technical vocations for many years. To this end, our mentors accompany trainees right from the start through the various training stages in the company, while offering support and advice in difficult situations.  The aim here is always to transfer our apprentices directly to a permanent position after completing their training. We provide training in these five vocations: industrial administrator, mechatronics technician, micro-technologist with specialization in semi-conductor technology, micro-technologist with specialization in microsystem technology and specialist in warehousing logistics.

Gain work experience as you study

Theory not enough? First Sensor offers students the chance to gain work experience when they're still studying through internships or student trainee placements. You can also write your bachelor's or master's thesis with us. We give our students responsibility and freedom – not only for their ideas, but also for our mutual success. You won't find strict policies, closed doors or outdated subject matter with us. Quite the opposite – we value flexibility and teamwork, and our products and services shape the markets of the future. This brings about exciting projects and we involve our students in these projects right from the outset – because we value your ability to think outside the box, your ideas and your freshly acquired knowledge. Intensive advice and specialist support over the course of the partnership are part and parcel of our involvement.

Launch pad for your professional future

At First Sensor, young professionals are put on the fast track to an exciting, future-oriented and diverse job placement – tailored to their training, studies, interests and career goals. In line with our service portfolio, we are primarily looking for trained micro-technologists, chemistry or physics laboratory technicians, and graduates having specialized in technical, business management or scientific courses of study. But people who are looking for a career change are also welcome and in good hands with us.

Young professionals work side by side with our professional experts, are immediately treated as part of the team and are soon acting on an equal footing. This allows them to benefit from the experience and expertise of our professionals, but also gives them the freedom to get hands-on themselves. They get involved in challenging projects in next to no time and gradually take on more and more responsibility.

We think this is a good thing. That's why we work together with our professionals to help them meet these aspirations, for example with regular feedback meetings and discussions on future challenges together with advice on how to master them.
