Think bigger.
Impact more.

A career at Oshkosh Corporation is more than a job. It's a chance to build something bigger than yourself and do work with a real purpose: to make a difference in people’s lives.

When you join Oshkosh, you’re joining a team of purpose-driven individuals working together to design and build products that transform industries, keep people safe, handle tough jobs and build communities. A team that believes in giving back to communities and caring for the planet we call home, because people around the world are counting on us to make a difference.

And as part of our People First culture, you'll be empowered to do the same. Consider this your invitation to explore new and better ways to make a positive impact — all at a place where there's no limit to the difference you can make.

The opportunity to grow. The support to make it happen.

At Oshkosh Corporation, we want to help you discover your full potential. We’ll provide meaningful experiences, connections and opportunities to enable you to be the best version of yourself.

Because we know that when our team members realize their greatest potential, our company does the same.

Your growth plan is unique to you

Helping team members discover their full potential is one of the many ways we make a difference in people’s lives. Amigh, started with Oshkosh as a temporary Machine Operator. Empowered and supported by her leaders, she was able to attend different trainings and helped educate her peers with what she learned to improve their processes. Today, Amigh works as an HR Business Partner Associate with our McNeilus business. Amigh never thought she would be presenting in front of people for her career, but her perseverance was sought out by HR. Her role was unique and was created to fit her skills and the needs of the business. Her growth experiences allowed her to reach a potential she didn’t know existed, and she is not done yet. To continue her growth journey, Amigh used Oshkosh's tuition reimbursement support to obtain her Bachelor's degree. She was the first in her family to accomplish this degree! We are proud to support team members like Amigh who are dedicated to making a difference.

Join a culture that puts people first

People are the foundation of our business. That’s why we’re so focused on fostering a People First culture: a culture that empowers team members, inspires collaboration and prioritizes personal and professional development. Home to a diverse set of individuals, supportive employee business resource groups and a wide variety of perspectives and ideas, the Oshkosh team isn’t just different — it’s one of a kind.

At Oshkosh Corporation, wellbeing goes well beyond insurance and retirement contributions. We offer a number of inclusive and empowering programs to ensure no matter where you are in your journey, you are able to leave work every day better than you arrived.

Wellbeing looks a little different for everyone

Access to programs like Virta – a virtual clinic that enables lifestyle changes to reverse type 2 diabetes diagnoses – allows Oshkosh team members to live healthier, more fulfilling lives. In 2021, inspired by the success stories of his fellow team members, senior manager of finance, Andrew, decided to enroll in the program. With support from Virta’s coaches and doctors, Andrew learned about the benefits of supplementing his diet with nutritious alternatives and received training to help him maintain a healthy weight and reduce his dependency on various diabetic medications. By offering free diabetic testing strips and meters, Virta not only holds its program users accountable but also provides them with the necessary tools and resources to improve their overall wellbeing. Virta is just one of the many benefits we offer to support our team members. 

Challenge the limits of possibility

For more than a century, our team members have worked to develop technology that changes the way the world moves. With industry-changing inventions under our belt and exciting innovations on the horizon, there’s never been a better time to join our team and be a part of creating what’s next.

Industry-leading innovations

Project Engineer Amanda Miller has been working on industry-leading innovations with Oshkosh since 2014, most recently as the lead controls and electrical engineer for the Oshkosh electric refuse collection vehicle (eRCV). Throughout the project, Amanda was able to grow her systems engineering skills while managing several different groups and aspects of the project. From the streamlined controls, integrating a 15" interactive touchscreen display, to updating the side loader controls to include absolute position sensing, Amanda and her team made sure that all aspects of the vehicle were optimized. The Oshkosh eRCV is a first for North America, creating a new category and bringing advanced technology to the refuse collection industry.
