While few companies have started hiring on a grand scale, Siemens announced today that it needs to fill more than 400 open positions across the United States in its Building Technologies division.
"Buildings are actually the world's biggest energy users, even ahead of transportation and industry, consuming one-third of the electricity in the U.S.," said Daryl Dulaney, president and CEO of Siemens Industry Inc. "Siemens is looking to hire 400 new employees to support sales as well as the subsequent engineering and servicing of buildings targeted for retrofit or modernization to lower energy consumption, reduce CO2 emissions, and improve the bottom line for city budgets."
To help implement these solutions, Siemens offers cities a financing option called "performance contracting" whereby the city assumes no financial risks as related expenses are completely offset by reductions in operating and energy costs. "As challenging as these times are, the answers to the problems cities face are largely here, the technology is here, and the methods of getting this done, even without a lot of up-front capital, have been put to work successfully. That's why we are looking to hire these 400 new employees," added Dulaney.
Open positions in the Building Technologies division are based in 39 states across the U.S., and require skills and/or experience in building systems and energy efficiency, field service and sales, installation and project management, product marketing, and electrical and mechanical engineering.
