KUKA as an employer

Are you interested in a career with a successful future? The world’s leading supplier of robotics, plant and systems engineering will get you there. Choose to work for KUKA and join us in shaping Industrie 4.0.

Tradition meets innovation

The development of KUKA as a company has been remarkable: founded in 1898 by Johann Josef Keller and Jakob Knappich as the Augsburg Acetylene Factory, the company is now the market leader in the production of industrial robots and automated systems and plants.

KUKA CEE GmbH was founded in 2007 as a 100% subsidiary in Linz (Upper Austria), and currently employs more than 170 people in 7 countries. The headquaters of KUKA CEE GmbH have been centrally located since December 2018 in a modern company building in Steyregg (Upper Austria).


The KUKA philosophy 

KUKA employs around 14,000 people in more than 30 countries. They all have one thing in common: their passion for KUKA as a company and its technological innovation. KUKA employees do not simply perform a role. They are enthused by the new aspects of their tasks on a daily basis, showing that they quite literally have “orange blood”.

Despite the size of the company, KUKA has the characteristics of a medium-sized company. The company’s hierarchies are flat and responsibility at KUKA rests with a wide range of individuals. KUKA has been successfully making its mark as a global player since the mid-1990s. That being said, strengthening our domestic locations is very important to us. For this reason, we continually invest in modern workplaces.
