Your career path is up to you
What makes DSM different? Our business demands innovation, which means that our doors – and our minds – are wide open. We’re proud of the fact that we stimulate people to decide for themselves what career path they want to take. Then we encourage them to keep on developing their skills and knowledge. We need people who can find different ways of adding value and contributing. Most importantly, we want original thinkers who will challenge us, stretch us and move us forward.
A truly international company
There is no single, linear career path at DSM – in fact, unusual career paths and ‘cross-pollination’ are encouraged. In line with our strategy of aggressive global expansion, we offer increasing opportunities to live and work overseas: in fact, we have more than 200 sites and offices in more than 50 countries on five continents. And although we’re headquartered in the Netherlands, our working language is English.
What can you do for us?
We’re an established, ambitious and growing company. What about you? Do you:
- See your work in the context of society and the planet at large?
- Have creative ideas that can be turned into practical applications?
- Adapt quickly to the changing world around us?
- Challenge conventional thinking in an open and collaborative way?
If the answers to these questions are yes, then it’s time to get in touch with us.

I have been working at DSM full-time (more than 8 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
Passionate employees; drive for excellence is shared by all employees; employees are encouraged to be professionally curious and take chances; very direct culture (no meetings after the meetings) the Dutch culture tells it as it is! No company re-invents themselves better than DSM.
Resources, resources, resources in regions outside of the NL; decision making sometimes centralized in the NL, consensus style of decision making slows down the process.
Advice to Management
Recognize regional differences and empower the regions accordingly; hold leaders accountable if you make a promise you need to deliver

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at DSM (Exton, PA) in August 2014.
Long and drawn out. It took months waiting for a response about potential employment opportunities. The interview was involved. Met with HR, direct manager then upper management. Got a complete tour of facilities and production areas.
