Careers

Build your own legacy  

Working at SRI means being part of what’s next — something big, but in small enough teams to see your work matter. To contribute collectively to the greater good.   

Here, you belong, just as you are. We cultivate a working environment that engages exceptional identities, perspectives, and experiences. Diversity, equity, and inclusion is not a layer we add to our daily lives; it’s embedded in who we are and what we do.

Work-life balance: Here’s how we enable it

From internships and fellowships for students at all levels, to employee resource groups that empower our family of co-workers, SRI is dedicated to pursuing programming for people in all stages of their careers. We operate from a place of respect, belonging, and access to resources that will enable our employees to achieve success.

“One of the things that’s special about SRI is that we genuinely value creativity — new ways of thinking about problems. We’re looking for people who want to make a difference in the world, can see things from a different perspective, and can work ahead of the curve to solve problems.”
