About Philips

Who we are

It all started when Frederik and Gerald Philips opened a small factory in Eindhoven more than 126 years ago to manufacture light bulbs. Since then we’ve transformed into a leading, global health technology company, valued at USD11.5 billion (Interbrand 2017), with about 74,000 employees, and an ambition to improve the lives of 3 billion people, every year, by 2025. 

In the face of growing and aging populations, the rise of chronic diseases, and global resource constraints, health systems globally are under enormous strain. Digital technology is transforming the healthcare industry, increasingly shifting value towards software and services. It also has the potential to enable more people to actively take ownership of their health and wellbeing. 

For Philips, with leadership positions in both personal health and professional healthcare, we see that innovation can transform the delivery of care across the health continuum, enabling new relationships between care providers and patients/consumers, and driving better patient outcomes, higher productivity and a better user experience for all concerned.

At Philips, we believe that there’s always a way to make life better. 

Unexpected and fulfilling

Philips is at the forefront of innovation and digital disruption, so you will always be challenged. No matter your role within the company, you will be learning constantly with on-the-job training, learning program and peer coaching.  

When you’re at your best, we’re at ours

Our flexible working policy caters for the night owls, the early risers, and those working in teams that span multiple continents. As long as you put in the hours, do your work effectively and link up with your colleagues when required, the rest is often up to you. In addition, we offer everything from fun runs to gyms and lifestyle programmes so you can stay strong, mentally and physically.

No matter where you are in your career, Philips has a path for you. If you are starting with us, you can put your education into practice in an environment where sharing knowledge, fresh input and co-creation is highly valued. As an experienced professional, you will not only be a game-changer, but a life-changer. As an executive, you will get the opportunity to not only create a strategy, but a legacy. Wherever you are in your career, you will get the opportunity to shape the future of healthcare. 

And who knows - you may be presented with opportunities you never dreamt of having. It’s definitely possible that, at Philips, your life could take a surprising new direction. Just like many others. Visit Philips’ YouTube, Work at Phillips page for glimpse of #LifeatPhilips.
