What you can expect

We provide security-relevant technologies. Accordingly, through our work we assume responsibility in connection with the security of Switzerland while fulfilling a key social remit.

Collaborative, agile and forward-looking work with independent responsibility is just as much a focus for us throughout the company as lifelong learning through extra-occupational career and further development opportunities.

This begins with vocational training, in which we demonstrate particular excellence. We also offer unique development opportunities. We support you in developing your individual potential and offer you long-term career opportunities. We reinforce this development of your individual potential with a uniform understanding of leadership and consistent management development within our company.
