Our TK Elevator work culture and mindset make us who we are

How we think. How we work. How we succeed.

Work is not just a place where you go to earn a living. It is a place where you prosper, where you can live up to your ambitions, and where you connect with people you might have never met otherwise. At TK Elevator, it is our mission to keep the world moving. And that also applies to you and your career. Together, we create an atmosphere of collaboration, appreciation, growth and entrepreneurship. We inspire each other to find ways to move ourselves, our careers and our customers beyond the status quo. It is our mission to reinvent the world of urban mobility.

What we offer.

Safety comes first

In our industry, safety has to take first priority. Always. We are committed to equipping our colleagues with the best tools, gear and training, which keeps them safe at all times. We rely on each and every one to adhere to safety protocols and not to take any risks that would compromise the safety of our colleagues or customers. Safety is so important to us that we have dedicated one of our TKE Principles , which shape our mindset and behavior, solely to this cause.

Fair compensation and benefits

Together, we make TK Elevator the successful business that it is. It goes without saying that this ensures fair compensation for everyone and, of course, benefits that are really worth their name. What these look like in detail depends on where you work. As a global company, we follow local regulations and practices. In Germany, for example, we offer our colleagues Christmas and holiday pay, as well as a company pension. In the United States, you profit from great health benefits, and in some Chinese locations we provide shuttle busses to get you to your workplace without a hassle. In locations where collective bargaining agreements are in place, we regularly keep these up to current standards and reach consensus with our workers’ councils.

Global perspectives and prosperity

The elevator and escalator market continues to see global growth. As cities around the world grow vertically, and more and more people require smooth, automated mobility solutions, we are at the forefront of making technologies common practice that were unheard of just a few years ago. Collaborating across cultures and markets makes us successful and enriches our portfolio as much as our own lives and careers.

Training and upskilling

We want you to be able to do your best work at TK Elevator and offer a large catalog of trainings and upskilling opportunities. Your manager will work with you to define what will be most beneficial to you, your career and your daily work. We value your ideas and skills, and we want to help you bring out your best.

A dynamic workplace

You are ambitious and like to challenge the status quo – and so are the colleagues you will work with, and our entire organization. The best available solution will not stop us from shaping an even better idea for the future. We are inquiring minds who implement large-scale innovation, such as solutions like the TWIN, and incremental, detailed improvements, such as when we tweak processes for better efficiency. This is how we make a difference in the industry and move our careers forward. This is how we move beyond.

Teamwork in a modern setting

We have clearly defined goals at TK Elevator. It takes teamwork to reach those goals, and our teams share in achieving innovation and excellence in everything we do. This is why we love working alongside great colleagues. We find it is more fun, more rewarding and more productive. At TK Elevator, you can rely on your teammates and be sure that everyone pulls in the same direction. We implement modern working models to create an enjoyable workplace. This is how we streive to ensure that everyone can work in a way that suits them best and has the freedom that is necessary to create a satisfactory balance between work and private life.
