ZF allows vehicles to see, think and act. With its technologies, the company is striving for Vision Zero – a world of mobility without accidents and emissions. With its broad portfolio, ZF is advancing mobility and services in the automobile, truck and industrial technology sectors.

Our Vision:
ZF is pursuing its vision of a world with zero accidents and zero emissions. We therefore want to be a leading company for e-mobility and safety assistance systems to make the world an increasingly better place. In the next few years, we intend to continue to position ourselves as a technology leader and to rank among the top 3 suppliers for autonomous driving.

The foundation:
ZF is now a one-stop shop for intelligent mechanical systems, thus setting itself apart from its competitors. We bring together mechanical systems with digital and electronics expertise to enable vehicles to SEE, THINK and ACT.

We offer a Global Trainee Program, direct entry, internships, training-on-the-job, thesis projects, student trainees and vacation jobs (location-specific).
At ZF, you become part of an interdisciplinary team and work with our customers to design and develop tomorrow's intelligent mobility solutions.
Employees have the option of working on different ZF products in an international and quickly changing, flexible environment to help shape the future trends of autonomous driving, safety and efficiency.

Not only that, ZF is a fair and responsible employer. It all begins with investing in our best assets: our employees. To this end, we provide performance-based and structured professional development opportunities while maintaining sustainable business activities across the entire supply chain.
