Sensata is one of the world’s leading suppliers of sensing, electrical protection, control and power management solutions in a host of markets and applications ranging from automotive and appliance to aircraft, air conditioning and telecommunications. We impact the lives of millions of people every day by helping our customers provide safer, cleaner and more energy efficient products that people use every day at home, at work, and on the go as they travel from place to place.
Our employees are a big reason we are the successful company we are today. They have contributed in many ways throughout a long history of accomplishment that began in 1916 when the company that became Sensata was founded. For many years, we operated as an independent company called Metals & Controls. In 1959, we became part of Texas Instruments and, in 2006, we became a stand-alone company known as Sensata Technologies.
As we became Sensata, we spent some time defining what set us apart from other companies. These traits included impressive collaboration with customers, partners and each other; unwavering integrity; deep understanding of technology, markets and customers; and practical creativity focused on making our solutions more reliable, more efficient, and creating new ways to put our proven technology to work for customers. We became a publicly traded company in 2010 and have continued to build on this base as we expanded both our market leadership and global reach through on-going new product development and acquisitions.
Along the way, we have also spent considerable time thinking about what this means for employees and the value Sensata offers to those who work for us: growth through challenging work; leaders who inspire, coach and develop; world-class global teams and local decision-making and a culture where results and performance matter.
I hope this resonates with you. If so, please take the time to learn more about us and the career opportunities we offer. I think you’ll find that it is time well spent.
