There are four important megatrends shaping the future of mobility world - connectivity, electrification automated driving and shared mobility. Continental develops solutions, products and technology for all of these trends that define the future of mobility.


Continental - Innovative, International, Dynamic

Founded in 1871, the technology company offers safe, efficient, intelligent, and affordable solutions for vehicles, machines, traffic and transportation. In 2018, Continental generated preliminary sales of €44.4 billion and currently employs around 244,000 people in 60 countries and markets.

Continental is Shaping the Future of Mobility

The corporation makes individual mobility safer, more comfortable, and more sustainable. With its core competencies, products, and services, Continental, together with its customers, improves the safety, comfort and enjoyment of driving. The corporation’s products, technologies and processes help make a significant contribution to sustainable mobility.

Our Employees are the Key to our Success

Its employees in particular are what make Continental strong. The corporation expects commitment and strength of purpose from its employees. It rewards excellence and creates the working conditions required to enhance and foster quality performance. It promotes devotedness, qualifications, education and training, flexibility and loyalty as a matter of course. A great deal is invested in the workplace in all areas of the corporation. The corporation is committed to providing healthy working conditions and ensuring safety in the workplace. Everyone at Continental enjoys equal opportunity, regardless of age, nationality, gender, religion, race or sexual orientation.

As a driver of innovation, Continental is on the leading edge of technology. This kind of top position can only have a sound basis if the people who stand behind this company have the opportunity to develop their ideas in an environment that inspires and motivates. An environment characterized by competence, cooperation and progress. Worldwide. We call this “corporate spirit”. Deciding factors for this corporate spirit are: 

  • A culture of high performance
    This is what drives the actions of each individual and all teams worldwide.
    At Continental you can expect more, because everyone expects more from themselves.
  • Striving for the best
    Each individual on their own is responsible for not simply accepting second best.
  • Cooperation and teamwork
    Flat hierarchic levels, open-mindedness and respect characterize our work as a part of a worldwide network.
  • Responsibility and management
    Executives should lead cooperatively and encourage individual responsibility.
    And everyone must be willing to be measured by his or her own actions.
  • Learning and knowledge management
    Our employees believe in the principles behind learning throughout their lifetime. We provide access to knowledge at every level of our company.

A balanced relationship between professional and personal life not only helps to reduce stress for an individual. It in itself is what greases the wheels for a company’s long-term economic success. Active, fit and motivated employees are the prerequisite for a “healthy”, a better company.

Everyone benefits from a balance between work and life. It is the basis for creating a classic win-win situation. And, the programs we offer to this end are just as extensive and varied. For example:

  • Sports events such as the international Conti-Running-Day
  • Wellness events for health topics
  • Culture weeks for defined countries with events and activities to match
  • Networks for certain interest groups
  • Programs for parent leave
  • Children’s day care
  • Voluntary activities for social responsibility

A company that does business on a world stage simply must have a multicultural mindset. For Continental, this is more than a basic condition. It is our opportunity to expand entrepreneurial perspectives and in doing so to participate in international markets up close and “from the inside out”.

This is one reason why individuals from all nationalities are welcomed by us, irrespective of their age, gender, origin, sexual orientation or bodily impairment. Decisive is only the applicant’s skills and potential. Equal qualifications are required from all. A selection is made based on an objective qualitative evaluation only.
