What does it take for a family run company to become world market leader in the premium domestic appliance and commercial machine segment?  It takes more than offering average products, run-of-the-mill service or short-sighted actions.  It also requires the aspiration to do it forever better and to be forever better.  This stance accounts for a good working environment at Miele and the success of our products.

Our colleagues can rest assured that those who live up to our standards of quality and professionalism grow personally and professionally.  No matter if they are at entry levels or managers. 

Miele asks a lot of its employees.  They are expected to develop and manufacture worldwide market premium products that are 'Immer Besser'.  In return, they receive the most valuable thing Miele can give them: that they themselves become 'Immer Besser' - in all of their professional and personal abilities.  

'Immer Besser' is therefore an entrepreneurial success principle from which customers and employees benefit in equal measure.  We call this principle 'MAKE IT BETTER.  BE BETTER'. 

   Miele is an Equal Opportunity Employer and supports and enforces a drug-free workplace.  EOE/AA:M/F/D/V
