Engineering Career Area

"The genius behind technology and the passion behind cost." That’s the motto of Engineering at Mondelēz International – and no wonder. Our Salinas plant in Mexico can produce more than 30,000 Oreo cookies a minute. And we have the world’s fastest film wrapping machine in Sweden, which can wrap Daim bars at a rate of 1,700 pieces per minute. That’s the power of engineering.

As well as supporting our products and day-to-day processes, Engineering has a critical part to play in some of the massive projects we’re embarking on at Mondelēz International, including new, state-of-the-art manufacturing plants. Because great engineers are the lifeblood of our business, we’re always looking to attract and grow new talent – join us, and we’ll make sure you’re equipped with a broad range of engineering capabilities and opportunities to grow and learn every day in international and cross functional teams.

Your Learning Experience

Your career is unique to you, so we believe you should be the one to shape it. What we will do is make the resources and investment available for you to achieve your objectives. There is a multitude of courses you can take and Engineering has its own competency framework, so you’ll be able to keep your career on track. And just because you’re an engineer doesn’t mean you’ll be pigeon-holed in Engineering – we’ll encourage you to gain exposure to our business way beyond your role.

Most of the time you’ll be learning by doing. Projects are challenging and involve interacting across teams. You’ll be learning from engineers who are among the best in their fields. And you might want to share your knowledge in a class, lead a task force or volunteer for a particular activity – all will help you to become a more-rounded engineer.

That’s not to say there are no formal learning methods. We offer face-to-face workshops, and courses covering topics like project management, automation, simulations and modularization. Training methods include eLearning, webinars and other events such as our Growing Here Weeks.
