We know that our vision to enable a world where anybody can fly anywhere, anytime is both bold and challenging. But since the very first days of Lilium, we have lived by a clear set of values that have helped us to grow into the business we are today, while staying true to our vision. These values define how we should work together and they will serve as the foundation for achieving our ambitious future goals.
Put the human
at the center
People are our number one priority at Lilium. Not just our own people or our customers, though - everybody. Our aim is to deliver a product that is accessible to everyone, no matter who, or where, you are. It needs to be uncompromisingly safe, universally available and outstandingly good.
The human focus is key to a successful business and its products. Many companies, large and small, forget this basic value.
At some point, I want to tell my kids that I was part of the generation that took action to avoid the tipping point and saved this beautiful world.
Create a sustainable planet
We believe that technology is the only solution to achieve human progress while preserving our planet. We constantly strive to ensure we are setting the standard for our industry by researching, and delivering, the latest technologies.
Create a magical
Our ultimate goal is for our customers to experience Lilium as something truly amazing, yet simple and seamless. To do this we look at the world through our customers' eyes, ensuring that any decision we make contributes to delivering a perfectly optimised service. We treat our customers like family - with warmth and respect.
Dreams are the most powerful thing you can give somebody. But bringing those dreams to life? That's truly magical.
Physics is a simple language we can use to understand the most complex things in the universe. By using this language as our reference point we can harness the power of nature and use it for the benefit of all.
Physics as our
At Lilium, we don't let the status quo hold us back. We push ourselves to challenge the boundaries of what's possible in every field to ensure we are delivering the very best product we can. We often find that the best solution is the most simple, meaning we can deliver greater efficiency, lower cost, or a better service for our customer.
The very best people
in the very best company
We employ extraordinary people who have strong ambitions, invincible determination and high expectations, and who don't stop until they achieve excellence. At the same time, we aim to be humble, honest and open in everything we do. We are a low-ego culture, which means that we let the best idea win, regardless of where it comes from. Lilium employees are friendly, professional, helpful and respectful - both to one another and wherever we go. We don't accept the status quo: exceptional is our standard.
I absolutely feel that there's a connection in all the minds involved in this superb journey. We come from different areas, countries, backgrounds, studies but yet, we're all riding on the same wave. It's just amazing.
Munich is our home
The Lilium HQ is situated at a small airfield just outside of Munich, right at the heart of Germany’s high-tech manufacturing and aerospace ecosystem. From the office, you have amazing views of the Alps and are close enough to the city for an evening stroll around the historic Marienplatz or the vast Englischer Garten. We have glorious sun in the summer, crisp snow in the winter and the remarkable Bavarian spirit all year round.
While Munich will always be our home, we have recently opened offices in London and Zurich that will serve as a base for some of our Corporate Development, Software Engineering and Recruitment team members. Both are in city center locations and are brimming with Lilium vibes.
Our team in the UK is hard at work creating the digital passenger and airline platforms that will be used in day to day operations once we launch our service. Post COVID-19 we will be located at a co-working space in the city, brimming with Lilium vibes.
300km westwards of our HQ is the beautiful city of Zürich, Lilium’s commercial center. The Zürich team is focusing on international launches and building global partnerships for the Lilium service.
We’re growing our team in the US with our HQ in Washington, D.C. The talented team is focused on growing Lilium's footprint and launching our service. Although they are the furthest away from our HQ, they all share the Lilium spirit.
Inside our headquarters
Our HQ is designed to make working at Lilium as comfortable as possible. We've got the basics covered with ample parking and free transport links to local stations, but it's also a fun place to work, with shared working spaces, a 'mingle room' complete with sofas and hammocks, and a rooftop terrace where you can watch jets taking off all day long, against the backdrop of the Alps. Finally, we're big believers in the idea that your health is central to your happiness, so we've invested in providing an extensive gym, bikes you can borrow to cycle round our campus, a relaxation room and three free meals a day.
Be part of the company
It’s not just our founders who are entrepreneurs. We treat each and every employee as an entrepreneur, empowering them to make decisions and challenge the status quo. In return, we offer each employee share options in our business, a training allowance to help them develop and a working environment that helps to foster their entrepreneurial skills.
How we hire
The recruitment process will vary depending on the division you apply to. However, successful applicants will go through a process which includes a discovery call, video interview, and a personal on-site interview. Depending on the role, you may also need to complete an assessment round.
Search for a position that matches your skill set and submit your application online. Alternatively, if you think you’d be a great fit for Lilium but you can’t see a suitable position at the moment, please submit a speculative application and we’ll bear you in mind for future opportunities.
You’ll be speaking with a member of our recruiting team, either by phone or video call. As well as giving you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have, we’ll be discussing your experience and your motivation for working at Lilium. You’ll receive feedback within two weeks of this call and, if it’s a match, we’ll keep you posted about next steps, as they can differ depending on the role.
If the role you’ve applied for requires specific technical skills, then it’s likely we’ll invite you to an assessment round during which you’ll have the opportunity to take part in mock scenarios that reflect potential real-life situations.
If you did well in the previous round, we'll arrange a video call with someone from the team you're applying to be a part of. On this call we'll be able to answer more specific questions you might have about the role, as well as discussing your background and skills in more detail.
On-Site Interview (on hold during COVID-19)
This is an opportunity for you to introduce yourself in person. You’ll meet the team and get to understand our company culture as well as participating in a competency-based interview where we’ll ask you questions about real life scenarios you have dealt with. On-site interviews can last from two to five hours and you’ll need to travel to our HQ in Munich, Germany.
Depending on the role you have applied for, we may ask you to undertake a final interview with a member of our senior leadership team.
Receive offer or interview feedback
Once you’ve completed the final stage of the process we’ll get back in touch as soon as we can, either with an offer (hopefully!) or some feedback on how you did.
