Bring your passion. Build the future.

Working at DSM

Let’s get to work

Creating brighter lives for all is a big job. It starts with the customers who help bring our stunning science to life through their products and services. It means working together with a diverse cast of characters to keep pace with a world that’s changing before our very eyes. It means pushing ourselves - and each other - to continue developing and improving. And most importantly, it means staying safe and well. At DSM we’re a family – and families look after each other. 


Putting customers first

Are you ready to work side-by-side with likeminded people to bring bright science to the world? At DSM we’re reinventing the way we work with our customers - because their success is our success. It’s a two-way relationship built on an intimate understanding of their needs and a curiosity to strive for new ways of building a better world.

We call it being purpose-led, performance-driven. On the one hand we share a collective passion to create brighter lives for all; on the other hand, we deliver it through a high-performance culture based on not just meeting, but exceeding the needs of our customers.

Putting science to work

At DSM we need people who are dedicated to serving science (if not necessarily creating it). You don’t have to be a scientist to work for DSM, but no matter what your profession, you must believe in the power of science for positive change – and be ready to support it in your working efforts every day.

Take a look at our different business functions - and the attitude behind them.

Growing together

Can you keep up with the demands of a fast-changing world? Are you hungry for development opportunities, and open to new challenges?

At DSM we believe that your growth enables ours – which is why we do everything possible to enable your continuous development.

Our approach to Learning & Development is based firmly on real-life experience and interaction with real people, rather than classroom-bases learning. Hence, we employ a 70/20/10 model.

  • 70% of your skills and knowledge are learned ‘on the job’.
  • 20% is learned through your learned from interaction with your colleagues.
  • 10% comes from formal education and classroom-based learning. 

It’s in your hands

At DSM your career path really is in your hands – and it can take you wherever you want to go. We’re a global company (hence English is our first language). But we’re also a science company – which means asking questions (and not always accepting the immediate answers) is in our blood. That’s why we empower our people to encourage and challenge each other, stimulate debate and ideas, and take the initiative in pushing for better, faster and more effective solutions to society’s challenges

Staying safe & well

We believe that everyone has the basic right to return home safely from work each day; which is why we strive to make everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing the number one priority in all that we do. And it’s why we encourage everyone to take collective responsibility for our health and happiness at work. After all, that’s what families are for.

Our ambition is to be injury and accident free, for example by following our life saving rules every day. Meanwhile, we encourage a healthy culture through our Vitality@DSM program, which helps employees track and assess their physical, social and mental well-being.
