Working at ITK

ITK Dr. Kassen GmbH specialises in the development and production of mechatronic systems, positioning systems and their components. We attach great importance to the highest precision – from the manufacture of the individual parts to the assembly of the product. Since we manufacture all components in-house, we have software and hardware developers, designers, electronics engineers, cutting machine operators and assemblers working closely together. Your tasks will be as diverse as our departments.

Our customers appreciate the precision of our systems – and use them for the most diverse applications: in the supply chain of smartphones as well as in scanning systems in cancer research.

Our working atmosphere is characterised by open and collegial interaction. We support each other, even across departmental boundaries. Because we have one goal: to manufacture the best product for our customers. You will gain insights into the manufacture of mechanical products, electronics production as well as software and hardware development – all under one roof.
If you would like to make a career start or are looking for a new challenge, we look forward to receiving your application.

What you bring with you
Do you like to think outside the box, tackle challenges independently and have an affinity for technical topics? If so, you meet the most important requirements to successfully join our team. If you also appreciate teamwork as much as working independently, don’t hesitate to apply to us. We are looking for employees who enjoy dealing with technical challenges and who are motivated to work in a solution-oriented manner. Because our customers are not looking for 0815 products, but for completely individual systems for their applications.

Our employees are our most valuable asset, and we want to offer them something:

• Diverse entry opportunities
• A high degree of freedom in helping to shape a growing company
• Interesting tasks in a dynamic environment
• Future-oriented jobs
• Work-life balance (flexible working hours)
• Specific and individual further training opportunities
• Flat structures
• Remuneration commensurate with performance and responsibility
• Participation in company pension scheme

Flexible working hours
The flexible organisation of working hours for a healthy work-life balance is important to us. If the start and end of working hours are not set in stone, this also benefits employees who want to reconcile work and family life (we have been awarded the berufundfamilie certificate), are pursuing a part-time course of study or have a hobby to compensate.

Apprenticeship with ITK

Would you like to learn something practical after leaving school and experience what everyday working life in a company is like? Then you should think about vocational training. The most important prerequisite for starting a 3.5-year apprenticeship with us is a good to very good secondary school diploma, or even a high school diploma. You should also have a fair amount of initiative.

We are looking for trainees for the following professions:

• Mechatronics technician
• Industrial mechanic
• Machinist

It is important to us that our future trainees enjoy a high quality standard during the entire training period. We therefore work very closely with the company Pro Zukunft- Aus- und Weiterbildung e.K. from Wetzlar.

After you have successfully completed your training, we would like to retain you in our company for the long term.

Temporary staff

We are always looking for temporary workers in the field of electronics production, mechanical assembly of individual components or positioning systems. You should have a certain level of manual skills and an interest in the manufacture of technical products. Ideally, you are flexible in terms of time and willing to consider hourly working models.

Trainees and working students

Are you studying a MINT subject and would like to gain your first practical experience? With a student internship at ITK you will gain an insight into the different areas of our company and find out which activities suit you. For the development area, you should bring at least four weeks of time with you and have completed your basic studies, because you will implement a small project during your internship. The same applies to internships in the commercial area: four weeks is the minimum.

If you want to get a taste of practical experience over a longer period of time during your studies and lay the foundation for a later career entry, ITK offers you a job as a working student. Ideally, you will have already completed an internship with us – in mechanics, electronics, hardware or software development. As a working student, you should have at least eight hours per week during the semester or several weeks at a time during the semester break. This allows us to plan better and gives you a sound insight into our processes.
