Now Hiring: Siemens Needs 400

Siemens Siemens USA is looking to fill more than 400 positions -- and most of them involve green technology. The jobs, in the corporation's Building Technologies division, were created to help cities reduce energy costs, lower CO2 emissions and save money.

Siemens developed these positions because 82 percent of Americans now live in cities, rather than out in the country. And as budgets tighten and that number grows, the need for cost-effective energy solutions is becoming increasingly important.

The corporation believes it can help cities lower energy costs by up to 50 percent and lighting costs by up to 80 percent through a comprehensive portfolio of: efficient building technologies, including intelligent building automation and lighting controls; energy management and smart-grid solutions; and renewable energy alternatives, from solar to biomass. They need hundreds of new employees to help put these solutions in place.

"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."

Openings 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.
