Lexmark International – Why Work For Us?


Company overview

A global technology company

Since 1991, Lexmark has been a recognized and lauded leader in imaging and output solutions that help people and organizations improve process and reduce their costs. Lexmark’s award-winning imaging and output technology has continued to evolve as the world becomes more digital and connected.

Lexmark sells its products and services in more than 170 countries and is a recognized global leader by many of the technology industry’s leading market-analyst firms. Lexmark has also acquired and integrated several strategic software companies since 2010, further expanding the company’s breadth of offerings to include innovative software solutions. 

Today, the company competes in key growth markets that include managed print services, intelligent capture, enterprise content management, healthcare content management, financial process automation and enterprise search – all focused on helping Lexmark customers connect employees to the most relevant information at the moment they need it.

Creating Customers for Life

How do we do this? By knowing your business well and listening to you. We leverage our deep industry experience and extensive technology ownership to assess your needs and create tailored solutions that position you to exceed your customers’ expectations, drive financial performance and promote future flexibility.

Social responsibility is our business

We operate our business in a manner that results in a better world by focusing on our people, our planet and the communities in which we live and work. As we strive to maintain best practices for sustainability, Lexmark’s commitment to corporate social responsibility is global in reach, balancing economic, environmental and social concerns.

Our respect for these principles applies within our own organization and as it relates to our partners. We extend our commitment even further by developing solutions that enable our customers to achieve their own sustainability goals.

Corporate quick facts

  • Headquarters: Lexington, Kentucky
  • NYSE: LXK
  • $3.7 billion in revenue in 2014, approximately 57 percent from international sales
  • Invested approximately $1 billion in strategic software acquisitions since 2010

Our technology is pretty outstanding, but it’s the talented, diverse and driven people behind our company who make it all happen. Our employees have the determination to go further, the adaptability to adjust to an ever-changing global market, the heart to stay passionate and personally invested, and the mind to know when to step back and put it all in perspective.

That’s where you come in. We’re always looking for more bright, innovative individuals who aren’t afraid to get down to business — and have some fun along the way. So take a closer look at who we are, where we are and what we do, and see why Lexmark could be the place for you.


Culture and Values

A community built on innovation and enthusiasm

At Lexmark, we prefer to think of "the office" as a place where great work is inspired by a positive atmosphere. We know having confident, happy team members is what fuels our success, so we make sure to invest in our people — both professionally and personally. From helping you create the career path you want, to skills enhancement and training, to offering new and challenging projects, we work with you to craft a role you're excited to have.

And while we are responsible for some seriously cool technology, we definitely don't take ourselves too seriously. We appreciate the little things that keep us going at our Lexmark offices — a lunchtime yoga class, a pick-up game of pingpong or a well-timed coffee break.

Customers for Life

Along with employee satisfaction, we also value our customers and believe in creating Customers for Life. Our team plays a key role in driving this vision — and we look for team members who not only care about creating top-notch technology solutions, but also how we can positively impact our customers and meet their business needs.

In the community

We make sure to support the local communities we call home. With more than 100 offices around the world, we're global in nature, but also local at heart. Employees are encouraged to volunteer and become involved in charities and organizations so we can give back where it's needed most. To encourage this, each employee receives up to three paid volunteer days off per year to work with qualified agencies.

We strongly believe in creating a healthy work/life balance for our employees, so we offer flexible work schedules and no maximum limits on vacation — so we can take time to rest and recharge when needed.

Diversity

Lexmark has a vibrant corporate culture that is fueled by the talent, diversity and drive of our employees. We know that it is perspective and experience that inspire new ideas, and that a diverse workforce can provide the insight and innovation needed to design products and solutions that meet the needs of all of our customers.

We operate and serve in a multicultural world, and our customers span many industries, business areas and geographies. The more diverse our team, the better we can understand our customers and their unique challenges. That's why we are always looking for individuals who will enhance our multidimensional family. Lexmark has eight diversity network groups where employee volunteers come together to support particular constituencies and sponsor companywide events.

Lexmark is proudly an Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer. We do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, protected veteran status, disability status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lexmark International.

    Interview

    After applying, the hiring manager will reach out via email usually to state whether they are interested in you or not and set up a time for the interview. Interns are usually interviewed over the phone. Took about 30 minutes with mainly questions regarding familiarity with applications being used and about your resume. After that HR calls with an offer.
