Challenging assignments that do good

Did you know that RISE is a place where collected brainpower engages in whole-hearted efforts to make the world a better place? A place where we study how to give the elderly back their appetites, send love across continents and heal wounds with the power of thought. A place that brings together a host of specialists, from technology nerds to ICT experts and computer scientists to microbiologists. We are RISE and we have an offer that is hard to refuse. Challenging assignments that do good.

You can work for us in roles such as specialist, researcher, technician, engineer or project manager, to name but a few. As a student, you can complete your doctoral project here or apply for a doctoral position. Thanks to the scope of our organisation, our employees are drawn from almost every engineering study programme as well as psychology and behavioural sciences. The result? A broad palette of skills and individuals, working together to make a difference.

Work at RISE – in every phase of life

Working for us should be both challenging and rewarding. We are proud of our success in recruiting so many talented individuals and we intend to continue doing so. Common denominators for all of our recruitments include diversity and flexibility; in order to be and remain a creative workplace, we give due consideration to you and your individual life situation. Your health and wellbeing are our number one priority. Are you are a recent graduate who is ready to take on a host of exciting challenges? If so, welcome to RISE. A few years down the road, perhaps it is time for you to start a family or for your children to begin nursery school? If so, welcome to RISE. Is it easier to work from home occasionally in the interests of working undisturbed? Digitalisation often provides fantastic opportunities and we can generally resolve most situations. In the final analysis, we want the same thing; to ensure that RISE remains a creative and competitive workplace in which everyone shares the desire to give their very best.

In addition to your benefits, a selection of suppliers offer discounts to a many number of services that you can choose freely from based on your needs and wishes.You can access all of your benefits and discounts in our benefits portal. Here, you can independently place orders and manager your benefits. RISE has also negotiated a group insurance so you can insure yourself and your family at a reasonable price, without the need to submit a declaration of health.  RISE employees are covered by a collectively bargained pension and insurance (ITP) that is on par with the market.

At RISE we like to do things together. That is why we have the Together Fund. Any employee can apply for funds for group wellness activities over and above the individual activities offered in the benefits portal. We also provide our employees with a time bank to be utilised as it suits you because we understand that flexibility is vital for a sustainable working life.

This is why we always offer our employees the opportunity to develop their skills over the years.
