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.

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.
