WE SOLVe Global MATERIALS SCIENCE CHALLENGES using the power of data
From green plastics to lighter more efficient cars, to better batteries, to less toxic dyes for clothing – the future of our planet hinges on how we create the next generation of materials and chemicals. We work directly with the innovative companies making the development tradeoffs that will impact our planet for generations to come. We provide the platform they use to develop materials with sustainability in mind, faster than ever before.
WE ARE A DIVERSE TEAM
The Citrine team hails from all over the world and many different backgrounds. We all share a true passion for enabling society to be more productive, efficient, and sustainable. From the founding of Citrine, we knew that to be successful in the future, we had to bring in the best people and welcome their perspectives. We are very lucky to have strong leaders across the company that represent many affinity groups, and we want to grow that number so that every member of our team can find role models of their choosing as we push forward. Come add your perspective to our conversation.
WE PROMOTE PERSONAL GROWTH
We are grooming the next generation of leaders in materials, business, platform engineering, and so many other areas. We take this responsibility seriously. We invest in the growth of our team with educational opportunities, mentorship, and a focus on giving our colleagues just a little more than they think they can handle. Rather than treating it as sink-or-swim, we support them and help them succeed. Whether it is growth in title, responsibility, skills, influence, or confidence, we want every person who works with us to look back and say that Citrine was an incredible career choice on a personal level.
WE WORK FROM WHEREVER WE ARE
We want to find the best person for the job, and we know that not everyone can or wants to live in the Bay Area. That doesn’t stop us. For many roles, we welcome remote members to our team. We make sure to bring the team together geographically on a very regular basis. We invest in technology to make sure people are as connected to one another as possible, and we actively invest in popular geographies so colleagues who live near one another can interact, even if they work in different areas of the company. Today, we have members of our team in 3 countries and 12 states in the US with plans for local office and remote work expansion in the coming year.
DIRECTOR, SCIENTIFIC SOFTWARE ENGINEERING
University of California at Santa Barbara, PhD in Chemical Engineering
“Startups are all about timing and Citrine was founded at exactly the right time. I joined because I saw the company was clearly positioned to ride the wave of informatics awareness and database/machine learning technology, and has a real shot at changing the materials industry. If you care about supercharging materials research with informatics, there is no better place in the world to apply your talents.”
Stanford University, MS in Materials Science and Engineering
“At Citrine, investment in our people and providing a supportive work environment is a priority. It’s no wonder Citrine’s diverse team includes a high number of women in both technical and non-technical positions. This is a unique characteristic in the Silicon Valley tech scene.”
University of California, Santa Barbara – BS in Physics
“Working in the materials industry prior to joining Citrine, I had a first-hand account of the difficulties involved in properly managing materials data, getting a holistic view of the entire data landscape and leveraging that data to its full potential. I joined Citrine to help build the systems and infrastructure to face those challenges directly, which will propel the fundamental advancement of materials science. Citrine is a unique opportunity to get involved in paradigm-shifting technology that has far-reaching effects in the materials science and engineering space. Everyone at Citrine appreciates this fully and it is a great feeling working alongside people who share the same drive to help advance materials science at a fundamental level.”
Stanford University, MS in Materials Science and Engineering
“Citrine’s collective enthusiasm for sharing expertise has improved my software development, data science, technical communication, and project management skill sets. Learning from my managers, peers, and even people from entirely different departments has helped me grow from working as an intern to leading key data science customer engagements and mentoring others.”
Sardar Patel University, BEng in Computer Engineering
“Citrine is unique in many ways. There is genuine support for diverse points of view and backgrounds. Professional growth is one of the most important values. I appreciate the remote friendly culture, the focus on project ownership and autonomy, and the high bar for excellence. However, what really sets Citrine apart is this brilliant team pioneering the future of materials informatics.”
Northwestern University, PhD in Materials Science and Engineering
“Citrine provides strong support for our remote employees. I work from our Chicago office with a tight-knit team located around the world. We utilize tools and technology such as video-conferencing and online communication channels for everything from formal meetings to inside jokes. Our strong remote culture enables a global perspective that meets the needs of both our domestic and international customers and partners. The ability to find the right person for the right position, no matter where they are located, is one of the most important inputs to our materials informatics leadership.”
