World of work

Hans Conrad Sonderegger and Walter P. Kistler, our two founders, shared one thing in common: a passion for technology and innovation. When the world’s first charge amplifier was patented back in 1950, they achieved the breakthrough for piezoelectric measurement technology and the foundation stone for the Kistler success story was laid. Innovation and technical advances are still the forces that drive us ahead today. They are firmly embedded in our DNA. We are a team of people who work together across the globe. All our employees join together to make a major contribution to our company’s progress and success. No matter whether you join our production operations, our management or our development team, you’ll find that measurement technology is our shared passion. Join us, and immerse yourself in the fascinating world of dynamic measurement technology!
