Life at Philips


What’s the common link between The New Years’ Eve Times Square Ball, the #1 ranked Norelco male grooming line, and the HeartStart Defibrillator that saves an average of 1 million+ lives every year?


Philips created and continues to improve all of them, as well as hundreds of other innovations that surround you every day of your life. At Philips, our mission is to improve the lives of 3 billion people a year by 2025 and we are looking for the next generation of social entrepreneurs and innovators to help us determine what else can help us improve health & well-being around the world in the industries of healthcare and consumer lifestyle technologies.


We believe that people should be happy, live well, and enjoy life. We also believe that all these things are achievable through technology innovation; innovation that is created by real people, for real people. It’s why we invite you to bring the passions and interests that have shaped your life thus far, to everything you do in your future career. MIT Technology Review recently ranked Philip’s #32 on its list of 50 Smartest Companies 2015.
