Join a global powerhouse
HBM Test and Measurement and Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S have joined forces as HBK - Hottinger, Brüel & Kjær. The merger has created the world’s foremost provider of precision measurement, processing and control solutions.
Today, as one company, HBK provides a complete portfolio of offerings that unite the physical world of sensors, testing and measurement with the digital world of simulation, modeling software and analysis. By creating a scalable and open data acquisition hardware, software and simulation ecosystem, product developers can cut time-to-market, drive innovation, and take the lead in a highly competitive global marketplace.
HBK employs +3,000 employees across 50 countries worldwide and more than 300 work with Research & Development.
Why are sound and vibration important?
Every man-made structure is susceptible to sound or vibration. When exposed to geological, low-frequency vibration, buildings and bridges will resonate, and without proper precautions, they will rip themselves apart. When Formula 1 cars and rockets take off, the engines and frames must withstand enormous g-forces. And while planes, trains, automobiles, laptops and smartphones don’t undergo the same stresses as low-earth orbit delivery systems, they do need to withstand vibration from various sources while meeting sound requirements for both noise level and sound quality. These factors must be considered from design through the product end of life.
Who uses our products and equipment?
We collaborate with aerospace giants such as ESA and Boeing, and we’ve helped ensure that NASA’s Mars rovers survived the journey, from lift-off to touchdown. We have helped virtually every automotive manufacturer and sub-supplier – including Ford, Ferrari and Harley-Davidson – with a wide range of automotive sound and vibration challenges.
A career with us
No matter whether you hold a degree within mechanical, electrical, physics, acoustics, software or another technical degree, we offer you the opportunity to join a working culture with room for applying your theoretical knowledge into actual solutions. Mechanical engineers and physicists simulate, design and realize accelerometers used in high-G scenarios and harsh environments, and acoustic engineers design microphone cartridges and ear and mouth simulators. For these accelerometers and microphones, electrical engineers design low-noise, high-impedance preamplifiers using both discrete and integrated circuitry. Hardware and software engineers design and develop our acquisition systems, using skill sets ranging from ADC to DSP to GUI.
I haven’t graduated yet…
At HBK we foster future talent by offering a variety of exciting opportunities where on-the-job training is in focus. Whether you are joining HBK for a student job, smaller semester projects or possibly internships culminating in graduate projects, we guarantee a steep learning curve, continuous support and the possibility to develop your competencies.
