As one of the world's leading companies in specialty chemicals, we offer challenging research projects with a focus on sustained technologies. We are one of the leading technology companies with a high level of innovative expertise: A considerable percentage of our revenue is based on products and application fields that are less than five years old. At Evonik, university graduates and professionals can deepen their expertise and purposely advance their careers. Organic, inorganic, molecular, and polymer chemists are in just as much demand at Evonik as specialists in biotechnology, toxicology, nano technology, and coatings. To assure our success, we need people who combine enthusiasm for their work with specialist expertise. That is why the path to our research and development division is not a one way street. Maybe you are interested in the operations side of the company or perhaps you have already gained some experience at the management level? At Evonik, you can also recommend yourself as a candidate for a career in management.
Future as an opportunity
We encourage independent thinking, responsible action, and an entrepreneurial spirit. We give our researchers the creative space they need, and we learn from our mistakes. We are looking for out-of-the-box thinkers and promote interdisciplinary cooperation around the world. In brief, we have the "courage to try new ideas" and view the future as opportunity. At the same time, we manage our projects efficiently in order to achieve the goals we set. Our innovative organization has a modern corporate structure with decisive business units. First, we have decentralized marketing departments as well as research and development labs, and application technology labs within the separate business divisions. This enables us to do research in close proximity to our global customers. Secondly, with Creavis, we have created a unit that handles strategic research and whose job it is to look beyond the horizon. Its goal is to identify new markets, new applications, new products and technologies, develop new business models, in other words, new growth potential for Evonik Industries. As a global specialty chemicals company, Evonik also maintains numerous cooperative partnerships with universities and research institutions around the world in order to quickly transfer to the company findings from ground-breaking research on sustainable issues in chemistry, biology, and physics.
