2020 has been a challenging year for businesses and individuals alike. While the pandemic has impacted every sector, we have been fortunate to be able to continue bringing the Lilium Jet and our vision of regional air mobility to life.

Last month, we celebrated being named the number one ‘Top Startup 2020’ in Germany by LinkedIn. The LinkedIn data analysis team evaluated the actions of more than 700 million LinkedIn members in the creation of the list looking at four metrics: employment growth, interest in job opportunities, user interactions with the company and its employees, and recruiting talent from companies on the list of LinkedIn Top Companies.

Our vision has attracted some of the best talent from across the globe and with a team of over 600 people that come from more than 52 different countries and cultures, it’s a diverse and inclusive workforce too. Together, we form a team that is stronger than the sum of its parts and is ready to tackle the big challenges we have ahead of us.

Why is Lilium one of the top startups to work for?
