Why Work With Us?

Battelle is solving the world's most pressing challenges.

We deliver when others can’t. We conduct research and development, manage laboratories, design and manufacture products, and deliver critical services for our clients – whether you are a multi-national corporation, a small start-up organization or a government agency. We are valued for our independence and ability to innovate.

Our Vision, Mission & Values

Battelle's vision is to be a major force in science and technology discovery and in the translation of knowledge into innovative applications that have significant societal and economic impacts. Steel industrialist Gordon Battelle provided for the Battelle Memorial Institute in his 1923 last will and testament after a career devoted to the idea that science and research can solve problems in business and society as a whole. His vision became our mission when we opened our doors six years later.

Our Solvers

At Battelle, we consider ourselves very fortunate to have some of the brightest and most creative minds walking our hallways and working in our labs. Our employees – called “Solvers” for the solutions they provide to difficult challenges – are the glue that holds our company together and why we’re still here after more than 85 years.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Battelle (United States)


    The interview consisted of a panel interview with 3 scientists, each 30 minutes long. The second round was a 6 hour long day with a presentation (~30min) of past research and then interviews with many different people in the department.
