Philips – Why Work For Us?


"Technology became a part of my life, and I realized it can be a very personal part of everyone's life." ck Andrade

Over 125 years ago, Frederik and Gerald Philips started a small lightbulb company in Eindhoven. Little did they realize that it would become a global force of innovation, committed to improving billions of lives worldwide. But it did.

Today, Philips is a world leading health technology company with a vision to make life better for people worldwide through meaningful innovation. Making good on this promise depends on our passionate, inspirational, collaborative and diverse team.    We have over 17,000+ amazing people in North America but are always looking for more. Like-minded, motivated, focused minds to join us in creating a healthier, more connected society while transforming themselves personally and professionally. 

Working at Philips is more than a job. It’s an experience filled with unexpected moments that will transform you in lasting and positive ways. Help us improve the world for the better while building a career that no one could have planned for. Even you.    

Progress happens outside of your comfort zone. Working at Philips isn’t just about the next stage in your career as a professional. It’s an experience filled with unexpected moments that will transform you in lasting and positive ways, as it did for Harold both personally and professionally.  Challenge yourself at Philips so we can improve the world together with technology. 

Don't just make a living. Make a difference. Working at Philips as an intern or early-career professional isn’t just about starting your first ‘serious’ job. It’s an experience filled with unexpected moments that will transform you in lasting and positive ways.  You'll meet and be mentored by the people that will help shape you professionally, but also on a personal level.  Start your career with Philips as we improve the world together with technology.

    Interview

    Interview was about an hour long and pretty much went over my resume and background. I got the offer but had to turn it down due to their relocation to Cambridge in the upcoming year.
