Code to Care

Software developers at Philips

Philips software developers don’t just work with code; their work is fueled by an innate code of caring to provide solutions that make people’s lives better.


At Philips we have access to the latest technologies and work on a range of breakthrough projects. But our focus is not on simply creating gimmicky gadgets or video games; we harness and enhance technological innovation to improve every phase of life, in a variety of health areas, for billions of people each year.

We develop systems, tools and applications that tackle the world’s most significant medical and consumer health challenges, such as cardiac disease prevention, cancer diagnosis, air purification, and well-being in pregnancy, to name just a few. We aim to produce the healthcare solutions of the future.

Philips employs (and appreciates) the most dedicated, passionate and skilled software developers; those skilled in their craft and devoted to using their abilities to build a healthier, more connected society. That is why, as well as offering an attractive compensation and benefits package, Philips offers its software employees the following:

Innovative projects that really matter

Our coders work alongside some of the best and brightest developers in the world to develop revolutionary solutions used by consumers, doctors and patients around the globe. Project opportunities span the entire healthcare lifecycle, from healthy living and disease prevention to diagnosis, treatment and home care innovations.

A culture of collaboration

Philips employees have access to a large family network of over 70,000 committed individuals, as well as the ability to work in a small team dependent on each other for success. Developers operate in Agile environments and are encouraged to immerse themselves in ongoing collaboration forums such as virtual hackathons, innovation workshops, and training days to learn, experiment, discover and succeed in an environment focused on cooperation.

A healthy balance of life and work

Our people love what they do, but it’s not all that they are. At Philips our mission is to improve the lives of 3 billion people a year by 2025, beginning with our own employees. We understand the importance of a healthy and flexible balance between work and personal life, and have a global flexible working policy in place to ensure all staff members can achieve that equilibrium. After all, we don’t just care for others; we care for each other as well.
