You want more than just electronics?

If a field of work appeals to you that requires both electronic and mechanical activities, then you should apply for training to become a mechatronician at KNOLL!

Your tasks? You will assemble mechanical and electrical components and commission systems. You will program and test electrical control systems. You will also be needed if faults develop. You find the fault and eliminate it.

Your training will last for 3.5 years, during which time you will attend vocational training at the Bertha-Benz School in Sigmaringen.

What you should bring with you:

  • Factory/secondary school certificate or a higher education entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)
  • interest in and understanding of electronic and mechanical principles
  • Diligence, endurance and aptitude
  • Communication skills and the ability to work in a team
  • Independence and willingness to accept responsibility

Experience reports

How can I imagine your work exactly?

Among other things, I am active in the mechanical processing (drilling, turning, milling) of parts. I also wire switch cabinets, cable sensors and motors to our systems and I am involved in the commissioning and maintenance of the machines.

What are your plans after your training?

I'll probably study after my training. However, the exact course of studies has not yet been decided. Sometimes KNOLL supports you during your studies when you are accepted into their “talent pool” program.

What we can offer you during (and after) training

At KNOLL, we will always see you as a person, not just as an employee. We have numerous non-job-related offers for our staff in the fields of health, social issues, further training, quality of life and quality of work. And we're always up to date! Find out here what you can expect from us.

Training Ace


We are a recognised training organisation and have been awarded to the official seal "Training Ace". KNOLL can give you the chance to lay a valuable groundstone for your later professional life – with excellent chances of being taken on afterwards, assuming your final certificate and personal commitment are as expected. It often happens that a member of staff started working with us as a trainee and is now a member of management staff.

Friendly work environment


Modern equipment and a pleasant climate await you at your workplace. Bright rooms, flooded with daylight are standard for us – even in the production halls. After taking lunch in our canteen, you can let off steam by challenging your colleagues to a game of table football.



At KNOLL, we have core working times, but you are free to decide when you start and when you finish your daily work – of course in agreement with your supervisor and/or your team. That makes it easier to flexibly plan personal appointments and to pursue hobbies and sporting activities alongside your training.

Pleasant colleagues and team spirit


With us, you're not just one among a thousand. Every training year we take on around 40 trainees in the different occupations requiring training. And KNOLL supports every single one of them. You have a concern? Your colleagues and supervisors will have an ear for you at any time. You get to know them right at the start. The focus in the first week of training is on team building and getting to know each other.

Further training


KNOLL attaches great value to advanced and further training. Even after completing your training, assuming you are taken on, many training channels will be open to you – to become a technician or business administrator – or another form of further training. Our specially founded "Talent Pool" supports eligible members of staff with an individually designed development concept.



During training, there is a program of events covering the whole year.  During the first training week there is an Ice-Breaker Day. In addition, each trainee is able to visit an OWB disabled workshop for three days during training. What will you learn? You will get insight into the life and work of handicapped people – and you can reinforce your own social skills.

Healthy with KNOLL


Health and sport are important for KNOLL. The company's own sports offerings such as spinning and yoga, plus team days with canoeing and climbing events ensure that our employees stay fit and are able to really let loose. Here, we work with fitness studios and other experienced partners in the region.

KNOLL social


We accept our social responsibility. For example, we are involved in youth support and care for the elderly through the Bad Saulgau Civic Trust, and we assist social institutions in the region. We operate an exchange program with a disabled workshop through the KNOLL inclusion project with the OWB and we help to provide an answer to current challenges for our society by integrating refugees.

Application process

You can submit your application online, per email or by mail. You could also use the application assistant by Jobufo. The assistant guides you quickly and easily through the application process in just a few minutes and if required, it gives you support.
Afterwards we will examine  your documents. If they are suitable, we will send you the access data for the online recruitment test, in which your professional and personal skills were tested.
The next step will then be a personal interview. And then it´s a matter of keeping your fingers crossed!
