As you collaborate with talented peers, producing innovative ideas and technologies, you’ll make a difference doing work that matters—to you and the world.

Our roles are a terrific opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job experience and contribute to real-world projects. Whether it be ground-breaking products, best-in-class solutions or a lifelong career, you can build what matters to you. With offices and facilities in more than 180 countries, what you create at Caterpillar travels and helps people around the world.

Caterpillar is leading the industry with development of automated mining trucks to improve production and safety – and it all starts in Tucson in terms of engineering design. We need the best and brightest young professionals to bring new ideas, talents and expectations to the team. And in terms of finding top talent, our University of Arizona partnership has proven to be second to none.

Our company has enjoyed a 70-year plus presence in Arizona. The Tucson campus, the centralized hub for Caterpillar’s Surface Mining & Underground division, actually includes three facilities. Located on the west side of Interstate 10, the Tucson Mining Center is our beautiful new $58 million, 150,000-square-foot headquarters here. It houses several hundred company engineers, product development and support positions working on the next generation of mining equipment, vehicles, and technology. Want a taste of what we design in Tucson? Come out to watch our massive automated dump trucks and dozers at work! The Tucson Proving Ground and Tinaja Hills Demonstration & Learning Center both are located south of the city, near Green Valley.

Join our team, and enjoy participating in activities such as the Feb. 29 Cat Dirt Dash, a unique opportunity to run past our iconic Cat mining equipment while benefiting the United Way of Southern Arizona. You’ll also have the chance to inspire budding engineers by mentoring area students and helping instill an interest in STEM career fields with activities such as Girls Experience Mining.


Caterpillar has the best minds in the business, and we hire globally for many different job areas, including engineering, operations, analytics, marketing, human resources, financial services, IT and more.

Working here can help you reach your goals, both professionally and personally. We want you to build what’s important to you, whether it’s the career you’ve dreamed of, crucial work skills, strong relationships, new technologies or world-changing solutions.

Each employee moves Caterpillar forward by adding their expertise to our winning team. Innovation flows throughout our company, allowing many smart minds to turn one person’s ideas into ground-breaking solutions for the good of all. Your work at Caterpillar can improve projects and lives around the world.

A career with Caterpillar means working for a leader in automation and autonomy, with the ability to see your ideas become reality.

Miners are looking for new ways to optimize operations. Automation is key to reducing variability and increasing productivity. Caterpillar is focused on being a partner beyond the iron, helping our global customers optimize operations at every level – from machines to individual sites to the complete mining enterprise. We collaborate in developing solutions that combine products, technologies, analytics and other services, growing peak efficiency, boosting productivity and keeping people safe.

Autonomous haulage fleets improve productivity by 30 percent or more compared to best-in-class manned sites. We have more than 225 autonomous trucks in service, and in 2018 achieved over 1 billion tonnes hauled. These trucks have traveled over 50 million kilometers without a single lost-time injury.



Yes, we’re the leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, but our real success depends on what our machines, and our people, make possible in the world. That’s why we focus on sustainability to help preserve the environment, commit to ending poverty with the Caterpillar Foundation and champion our customers’ needs in order to improve their lives, their businesses and their communities.



You are part of a future generation of world builders eager to learn and to drive our businesses forward – and you should have every reason to believe that anyone can do any job with the right amount of passion, dedication and expertise.

At Caterpillar, we believe each person is unique and valued, and are committed to ensuring that our workplace is diverse and representative of the many customers we serve around the globe. We strive to celebrate and empower the people who do what it takes to move our world forward regardless of their gender, race, appearance or background. We call out the opportunity to eliminate gender and racial bias in the industries we serve. Our success depends on having the top talent, and diversity in the workplace is an important way we build the best team possible.

Research even shows that companies that truly celebrate inclusion, especially at leadership levels, yield more positive results. This issue matters to both men and women and is essential to the fulfillment of our company’s values on a global scale. When women and people of color play a vital role at Caterpillar, the whole company wins.   

We are proud to call home to 14 vibrant, active Employee Resource Groups, including our highly engaged Young Professionals group, the Women’s Initiative Network, the Caterpillar Asian Indian Community, the Caterpillar Lambda Network (LGBT) and the Armed Forces Support Network. Employee Resource Groups connect you with dedicated employees around the globe who share similar life experiences or interests. These groups provide opportunities for your personal and professional development, and they help drive innovation, too.
