Are you thinking what we’re thinking?

Here at DSM our purpose is to create brighter lives for all – and we need bright people to help us achieve it. Are you one of them?

So, if you think you’ve met your match, why not join us?

Purpose-led, Performance-driven

We’re looking for individuals who are caring, courageous and collaborative. Transforming the fortunes of our planet and its people isn’t easy. It requires bold thinking and action; outstanding teamwork - and of course hard work. We call this being purpose-led, performance-driven - and it’s deeply woven into our culture.

We know who we are and what we stand for. And as a member of DSM, you’ll always know what is expected of you - and what you should expect from us. It’s based on six fundamental pillars that define our relationship:

  1. Staying safe & well
  2. Bold progress
  3. Customers first
  4. Stunning science
  5. We grow together
  6. Playing your part

Proud to be different

Being commercially successful is all about differentiating ourselves from the competition. Which is why we positively embrace difference within DSM. Our world is a diverse place, so we welcome people from different backgrounds, countries, age groups, cultures and genders - irrespective of disability or sexual orientation.

Just as importantly we welcome diverse ideas, approaches and insights. Ours is a culture of inclusion - where you don’t need a big job title in order to contribute a big idea or make a big change.

To stay on track we’ve set ourselves targets in many of these areas (after all, we are performance-driven). For example, despite being a European-headquartered company, we’re striving for:

  • 35% of our executives to be non-European
  • 25% of our executives to be female (as you may know, our Co-CEO is female so the commitment to diversity and inclusion at DSM comes from the very top). 

A word on Covid-19

Nothing tests your resolve like a global pandemic. Here at DSM our people have met these challenges and delivered beyond all expectations.

  • Our plants have remained open (and safe), manufacturing ingredients for much-needed food and medical equipment - as well as making and donating disinfectant and sanitizer for nearby hospitals.
  • Our teams have developed new safety gear and virus testing kit designs; helped bring crucial healthcare equipment to market; and even distributed free immunity-optimizing vitamins and personal protective kit to those in need.
  • Our company has provided vitamin supplies for employees and their families; provided education on the immune system and work-life balance; and continued to support the development of our people.

If this sounds like your kind of company, you could be just our kind of person.

Sustainable Development Goals

With our unique science-based competences, DSM has created a strong platform for growth and is ideally positioned to develop innovative solutions addressing Nutrition and Health, Climate and Energy and Resources and Circularity.

We’re so convinced of the value of doing well by doing good that our strategy is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined by the United Nations in 2015. We’re contributing to all 17 SDGS, but we strive to deliver on five in particular:
