Basel

Swiss-AS HQ is based in the beautiful and international city of Basel (Basilea) in the corner of the French and German borders. Basel is Switzerland's third-most-populous city (after Zürich and Geneva) with about 180,000 inhabitants. The official language is (the Swiss variety of Standard) German, but the main spoken language is the local Basel German dialect.

The city is known for its many museums, ranging from the Kunstmuseum, the first collection of art accessible to the public in Europe (1661) and the largest museum of art in Switzerland, to the Fondation Beyeler. The University of Basel, Switzerland's oldest university (founded in 1460), and the city's centuries-long commitment to humanism, have made Basel a safe haven at times of political unrest in other parts of Europe for such notable people as Erasmus of Rotterdam, the Holbein family, Friedrich Nietzsche, and in the 20th century also Hermann Hesse and Karl Jaspers.  The name of the city is internationally known through institutions like the Basel Accords, Art Basel and FC Basel.

The city has been a commercial hub and an important cultural centre since the Renaissance, and has emerged as a centre for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and it is also the home to the world headquarters of the Bank for International Settlements.

Basel is Switzerland's second-largest economic centre after  Zürich and has the highest GDP per capita in the country. In terms of value, over 94% of Basel City's goods exports are in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors. With production facilities, Basel accounts for 20% of Swiss exports and generates one-third of the national product.

In 2019 Basel, was ranked among the ten most liveable cities in the world by Mercer together with Zürich and Geneva.

 

Workplace & Culture

This is the place where you can work, learn, increase your knowledge about aviation, different cultures, new technologies and still be yourself. Your work can have a big impact on people's lives not just on the technical side but also as a human being.

You can be part of an amazing multicultural and international team with a family spirit.

In this company we love to travel, laugh, work, play, be creative, play sports and, last but not least, help each other as a team.

“The family spirit is here evident and I enjoy the multi-cultural atmosphere among the company. But much more than that I like the challenging daily business at Swiss-AS due to the combination of aviation and IT!” says Jeanne, working with us since 2016.

What makes us different?

We are a Swiss based international company, financially healthy, organised in a stable and lean way, looking for new employees to support its constant growth and strengthen its market leading position.

“Although Swiss-AS is a software company, it has inherited the aviation business specialization from its mother company Swiss International Air Lines, which makes it different from a typical software development organization. The company respects its employees and cares for the transparent communication, work-life balance, self-improvement and personal growth. I believe in the vision of the company which motivates me to stay at Swiss-AS!” says Syed member of the team since 2015.

The potential of the American market is well-known to the MRO software industry. Many airlines and MRO providers in the Americas currently use outdated MRO software and will sooner or later screen the market for fully integrated MRO software solutions to meet the current and future requirements of maintenance organisations. In response to the market needs, Swiss-AS has established an AMOS business unit in Miami, FL, USA, in 2010, in partnership with its sister company Lufthansa Systems. In the meantime, Swiss-AS counts over 15 customers in the Americas.
