Careers at KONE

When thinking about a career, an "elevator and escalator company" is not usually high on anyone's list -- but it should be. These machines are taken for granted, but think of a world without them. No elevators would mean no tall buildings, which means no large compact cities, which would mean exponentially more urban sprawl and more traffic with longer commutes. That is a lot of wasted energy and is exactly what the world does not need -- especially now.

At KONE, our mission is to improve the flow of urban life. As a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, KONE provides not only modern and efficient vertical transportation but also solutions for maintenance and modernization that add value to buildings throughout their life cycle. Through more effective People Flow®, we make people's journeys safe, convenient, and reliable in taller, smarter buildings. Our advanced technology uses less energy and reduces the impact on the environment.

This is why you should be thinking of an "elevator and escalator company" as a great place to start your career. Because especially at KONE, it is.
