We always ask the question "What if you could...?"

At AspenTech, we love questions. We are a company that is driven by curiosity, exploration, and finding a better way to meet challenges head on. We value out-of-the box thinkers who embrace change and aspire to make a difference. Are you curious about what life is like as an AspenTech team member?


Innovation. Collaboration. Execution. — AspenTech's core principles that guide how we operate. We strive to be the best and believe that having a culture of innovation, working together and being both creative and disciplined in our thinking helps us deliver value to our customers and makes working at AspenTech a unique experience for our employees. 



Your Contributions CountOur 1,300+ employees have made AspenTech the #1 process optimization software company, but we haven’t let success go to our heads! Actually, we like to think that we are pretty down to earth. Our teams are a hardworking mix of seasoned and budding professionals with a flair for tackling hard problems. While our market impact is big, we offer many of the advantages of a smaller organization. Every employee has a real opportunity to make important contributions that directly benefit our customers and drive our success. At AspenTech, you can develop your career in a global company that’s large enough to have good resources, but small enough so that you are noticed at the highest levels.


Career DevelopmentEmployees are encouraged to take an active role in shaping their careers and AspenTech is committed to helping with our “Get Ready” Career Development Program. Whether it be career talks where employees gain insight from successful colleagues or an openess for candid conversations with managers or mentors, employees have all the resources they need to grow. We strive to promote from within and grow our future leaders from the ground up.


Community Involvement — While we are a global company, we value our local communities and supporting charitable causes that our employees are passionate about. AspenTech’s Charitable Contributions Program helps employees give back to their favorite charities and make a difference towards improving the lives of others. We are geared towards organizations whose mission involve educational programs for the disadvantaged, human/social services, children in need and medical research.

    I have been working at AspenTech full-time (More than 5 years)


    1. Great salary and benefits, 2. A new CEO that has a passion for our customers and our employees, 3. A company that believes in developing their people and promoting from within, 4. A place where you can make a difference, 5. A long list of the best customers in the world, 6. Innovative, value-driven market-leading products


    Under the former CEO there was not enough empowerment for the employees or focus on our customers. That culture is absolutely changing under the new CEO with many initiatives in place. Cultures do not change overnight but it is clear that the CEO and Executive Team are absolutely committed to our customers and employees. There are many new initiatves in place that are being driven employees to look at improving the customer experience, new training initiatives for employees, etc. This is a very exciting time to be a part of AspenTech!

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AspenTech.


    A phone interview with HR followed by a phone interview with three people in marketing, an then an in-person interview with three people in marketing (I saw them one at a time). The questions were straight forward and related to the job. I received a couple of situation questions, i.e. describe a time you failed and how you handled it.
