Automotive, aerospace, rail transportation technology

Calling all aeronautical engineers, project managers, customer service representatives, work schedulers, switchyard crew, mechanics, workshop managers, design engineers and computer scientists, some 21,000 of your colleagues are already employed at over 200 Berlin automotive companies, while another 17,000 of them are working for 150 Berlin-based companies in the aviation industry and over 20,000 more at the over 100 railway technology companies in the Berlin area.

Flourishing companies such as Borsig and AEG have helped make the capital region a center of railway technology. Railway technology companies based in Berlin and Brandenburg are the backbone of world’s transport systems. Companies like Stadler and Alstom are headquartered in the capital and are among your prospective employers. Deutsche Bahn AG is Berlin's largest private employer – and currently employs approximately 18,500 of your colleagues, including 500 scientists. Berlin-based Bombardier constructs trains and trams, while Siemens and others make railway signal systems that are exported all over the world – so you may want to include them in your job search, too – along with Berlin's public transport system, used daily by about 2.7 million city residents. Well-known research institutions include the Technical University and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Key priorities of the Berlin railway technology sector are control and communications systems, software, rail traffic operation, railway construction, passenger information and supply.

The approximately 200 automotive companies located in Berlin include 80 industrial enterprises and supply companies and various engineering firms – with supplier parts and developments making up another key area within the sector. BMW has its engine plant in Berlin, while Mercedes Benz sells cars, motorhomes and trucks at Berlin’s Salzufer, among other locations. For the most part, however, this sector makes its home in small and medium-sized companies that produce or sell system components and parts. Lonscher Waagen, Arthur Schambach, Lucio Technologies, Hengst Automotive and Bonze Electric Mobile are just a few examples of companies you can include in your job search.

The Berlin and Brandenburg aerospace industry is one of the most promising sectors in the capital region – with global players like Rolls-Royce and MTU lending their names to the area's reputation. But the sector also includes many small and medium-sized enterprises working in the supply sector as well as in services, security or IT. The sector focuses largely on propulsion technology, maintenance, overhaul and repair (aircraft maintenance), simulation and testing, as well as the production and marketing of small aircraft. At the German Aerospace Center (DLR), research is being conducted in aeronautics, energy, transport and safety – making it yet another potential employer. As with companies like Holmberg, Alpha Board, Lockheed Martin and BeanAir, just to name a few.

Salaries are based, as always, on experience and current pay rates at the respective companies. A system engineer earns on average between 40,000 and 60,000 euros per year before taxes, while a car mechanic makes around 25,000 euros and a workshop manager between 23,000–35,000 euros per year. So get started on your job search now! It'll pay off in the end.
