Rohde & Schwarz – Why Work For Us?

Working for Rohde & Schwarz means, setting milestones in technology. We know: Innovation is innovation. No matter where it orginiates. A company that wants to make optimal use of the commitment and creativity of its employees has to do more than give them the scope they need. I must offer each person career options best suited to their individual profile.  

Unlike traditional large businesses, we have a straightforward structure, flat hierarchies and a relaxed work environment.

And, as a private company, we are not under the influence of the stock market. All of this creates stability and, above all else, a great deal of freedom. Freedom, which we are happy to pass on to our employees. The core values, which are at the foundation of our business activities, are extremely important to us. 

We are...

  • People-oriented: We respect personalities that don't get lost in the crowd, and have the desire to be top performers in an informal working environment.
  • Development-oriented: We develop trendsetting products, which appeal to our customers because of their benefits, their technical advancement and quality.
  • Passionate: We're excited about our dynamic technologies and enjoy the challenges of working with them.
  • Innovative: As highly motivated self-starters, we are committed to continually pushing and redefining the limits of technology.
  • Independent: We are and will remain an independent company. At Rohde & Schwarz, intelligent, independent minds work together to create technological progress.



All employees have their own strengths and interests. That is why we at Rohde & Schwarz offer a variety of career paths, that match your strengths and goals.

Management career

Do you want to assume responsibility?  We have various programs support  young managers, like development measures for young talents, our Leadership Essential Program and a mentoring program with experienced managers. For experienced managers we offer extensive training opportunities to continue developing leaderhip skills.

Technical career

The conventional management career is not what you are looking for and you would rather stay closer to your chosen field? At Rohde & Schwarz we offer you a wide range of opportunities to expand technical qualifications and develop personal skills. And the option to switch to a management career is always available.

Project management

Are you completely dedicated to your specialized field, want to take responsibility but, for now at least, you are not considering a management career path? As a customer project manager, hardware project manager or software project manager you have the technical leadership of a project team. For that we support you with targeted training measures to prepare for the new role or offer advanced project management courses for experienced project managers.

    I have been working at Rohde & Schwarz full-time (More than 3 years)


    Best of both worlds. Pros of working for a small company, and pros of working for a large company.


    My only complaint recently is that R&S USA has been growing tremendously so there has been a lot of structure change. Once that levels out, I will hopefully have no complaints!
