Career paths at Infineon

Are you excited by innovative technology, and would prefer not to take direct management responsibility? Then our “Technical Ladder” expert track is just right for you: Here, you can concentrate on technology -- and move your career along at the same time. You will expand your expertise, contemplate and solve problems, and develop into an eminent expert in your field.

Would you like to take on responsibility and help shape company strategy?
Then the Management Career path is right for you: We support you on your way to executive management. Through training sessions, you’ll develop your leadership skills -- sample subjects include setting priorities, expanding structures and processes, and clearly communicating tasks.

Our Individual Contributor career is the backbone of our company. It is designed for all employees who would like to make their contribution through expertise, competence, or specialized leadership. 

Are you mainly concerned with leading projects and functional leadership of project team members in your day-to-day business? Then the Project Management Career is the right path for you. 
Our Project Management Career defines which qualification in terms of experience and competencies is necessary to successfully lead certain project classes. It also shows you which trainings and development opportunities are available to you: you have the opportunity to grow along a clear, predefined development track with mentoring and certification.

Personal development: How we help you succeed

The "High Performance Behavior Model" translates corporate strategy into concrete behavioral descriptions.

Ethical and cooperative behavior is just as important to us as achieving goals: for this, we have our High Performance Behaviour Model as a framework. In our annual “STEPS” employee dialogue, your manager will not only give feedback regarding WHAT you have achieved - but also regarding HOW you have achieved it. Additionally you and your manager will reflect upon your professional perspectives and come up with a structured development plan for your career. 


From project management to negotiation training, from technical training to cleanroom behavior courses: Internal and external training offerings provide numerous educational and developmental opportunities. Beyond that, management, technology, and innovation forums on our Intranet also support an awareness of strategic and technical topics. Additionally, you can benefit from our mentoring and coaching program and take advantage of experienced managers’ and specialists’ knowledge.

Expand your horizons at one of our international locations -- for example, in Malaysia or China. Through short-term foreign assignments, you can gather valuable personal and professional experiences. We cover all tasks related to moving so that you can concentrate completely on cooperation with your new colleagues.
