At the Makers Garage we welcome students from various backgrounds to develop high impact ideas and innovations in real business context.
You as an intern/working student can engage in feasibility studies, desirability studies, developing business models, dynamic prototyping, and technology benchmarking.
With the support of our experienced Continental specialists, you can play your part in driving innovation in cross-functional international projects.
Find us in three locations with unique focus areas:
Hamburg, Germany – ContiTech: In our historic Phoenix Building you can find the InnoHub which is home to the Makers Garage Hamburg. We define the focus of this location to be Technology Proof of Concept based on IoT (Hardware and Software), supporting projects from all fields and segments within Continental.
Hannover, Germany – Tires: The Hannover Stöcken campus combines our corporate heritage with state-of-the-art workspace. Here, as a student from either a business and/or tech domain, you can join forces with peers to imagine, design, and build ideas supporting our Digital Solutions tires organization in developing most valuable digital tire services for our customers. This could mean validating a business case, building a prototype, or doing research on markets, products, or customers.

To achieve this, we provide Business Development support where our main task is fully understanding the projects, gathering all relevant information, and analyzing if it’s a go to market or not.
No matter the location, across all Makers Garage teams we share one common goal: Contribute to making our solutions smarter, safer, and more sustainable.
