ZEISS. A start-up before it was cool.
Carl Zeiss founded his first workshop in 1846 – which today you would call a dynamic start-up. 170 years later we are still driven by his entrepreneurial spirit and constant pursuit of innovation. With 25,000 employees, ZEISS is one of the global leaders in the optical and optoelectronic industries today. Our digital solutions accelerate medical progress, enable scientists to make groundbreaking discoveries and facilitate the factory of tomorrow. And these are only a few examples of how we constantly open up new opportunities for our customers in healthcare, research and industry.
Digital Challenges @ ZEISS
Our business groups and the central corporate and service functions offer a large number of career possibilities for all disciplines. Here are some exemplary digital challenges:
ZEISS Industrial Metrology
With over 40.000 installed measuring machines around the world ZEISS is one of the most trusted partners of leading automotive, aerospace and medical companies. The smart factory of tomorrow – also known as Industry 4.0 – is fueled by data. With our automated 3D digitization and inspection systems, we provide this data and enable leading automotive, aerospace and medical companies to produce high-quality products in customized mass manufacturing. Join us and enable our customers to build their next generation smart factory. Join us and help our customers to make their next groundbreaking discovery.
ZEISS Medical Technology
Digital medical solutions from ZEISS support doctors in their diagnosis and decision making, guide them with software-supported visualization and make clinical workflows more efficient – always ensuring the best treatment for the patient. For example, by pooling information on 50,000 cataract operations in a digital database that helps doctors improve treatment outcomes.
In the future, digitialization in medicine will open up new exciting opportunities that will make high-quality healthcare accessible to more and more people around the world. We work on solutions to enable our customers to provide care beyond a doctors practice and thereby to foster convenience for the patients while keeping the standard of care at the highest level.
For 170 years, ZEISS has constantly pushed the boundaries of microscopy and thus helped 35 Nobel laureates to revolutionize modern science with their groundbreaking discoveries. Today, intelligent software solutions and imaging algorithms play a crucial role in advancing microscopy even further.
For example, using up to 91 electron beams in parallel, our MultiSEM is the world’s fastest electron microscope, producing up to 2 terabytes of image data per hour. It allows the imaging of very large areas of the brain and will enable researchers to soon map an entire mouse brain and possibly, in the not too distant future, even a human brain – a big step in understanding how the brain works and to better treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Other key factors are the best-in-class connection of our devices, state-of-the art large data management and an easy-to-use interface. This way we enable our customers to get the relevant viable information in the most efficient and convenient way possible. Join us and help our customers to make their next groundbreaking discovery.
