In fiscal year 2018, which ended on September 30, 2018, the former Siemens Mobility Division posted revenue of €8.8 billion and had around 34,200 employees worldwide.

The demand for Mobility is growing all over the world. Transporting people and goods to all corners of the earth presents challenges for the infrastructure of national economies. This applies, in particular, to the 
transport and logistics facilities of cities: Will cities be able to solve the problems caused by increasing
road traffic? Can public transportation help them avoid total gridlock? How can railway operators increase the efficiency and safety of their systems? How can rail and road traffic be integrated? How can logistics 
supply chains be further optimized as freight volumes continue to increase steadily? 

The Mobility Division provides answers to all of these questions with its comprehensive portfolio; because Modern, interconnected and IT-based Mobility is the core competency of its five business units: Mobility 
Management, Turnkey Projects & Electrification, Rolling Stock and Customer Services. They have the 
know-how to make road traffic flow more smoothly and quickly, make trains more environmentally friendly and efficient, make train schedules and freight shipments more reliable. We work with our customers to 
develop optimal solutions to help overcome their challenges. 

We are looking for talent to work on these challenges.
