Who we are

Schindler is a leading employer in the urban mobility industry.

More than 140 years ago, Robert Schindler founded a small family engineering company in Switzerland and built his first elevator. Yet despite the many changes of the past 140 years, our values and ambitions remain constant. Schindler is still a family-run company, built on family values and principles. And we still have the same unerring commitment to using the skills, resources and exceptional abilities of our worldwide family of experts to make tomorrow’s world of megacities not just possible, but better every day.

Over 60,000 Schindler employees work around the clock to serve over one billion people using our elevators and escalators every day. We operate in over 100 countries and manufacture our equipment through a global network of latest-technology production facilities. We are proud that people of nearly every nationality work for Schindler at one of our more than 1,000 branch offices around the world. Schindler employees are making the most of a Schindler career opportunity.

We are Schindler: engineers, pioneers, innovators and visionaries – a very large family of urban mobility specialists dedicated to make tomorrow’s world a better place to live in. We are always at your service, and we will never stop trying to be Schindler Your First Choice.
