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 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.
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.

“As a Chemistry student with emphasis in Materials Science and Computer Science, I saw the value Citrine has to offer when I used Citrine’s APIs in my undergrad research. Working for Citrine has given me the opportunity to contribute to a product that furthers scientific advancement in a meaningful way while learning from incredible mentors. The best part of working at Citrine for me is the motivation I derive from collaborating with our dynamic, supportive, and insightful team.”
University of Maryland, MSc Chemistry
“I joined Citrine back in 2016 because of the opportunity to work with great people on difficult materials development problems. Providing tools that researchers use to develop cutting-edge materials has been extremely rewarding. One of the most exciting aspects of my work is being part of a diverse team that provides unique viewpoints to solve challenges researchers face in the lab.”
Senior Data Management Engineer
University of Rochester, PhD in Chemistry
“I joined Citrine to pursue a career that used both my formal education in material science and my 20+ years of coding experience. In my role, I get to learn about new material classes while simultaneously helping my customers transform their data management systems to be best-in-class using our platform and tooling.”
IE Business School, MBA, Villanova University, BSc Chemical Engineering
“I love seeing that lightbulb moment when someone discovers and unlocks a new capability — it excites me. I am passionate about helping people maximize their own potential using digital technologies. The reason I chose Citrine is because it is a start-up, with a smaller team enabling closer relationships with colleagues. I value the opportunity to be challenged and mentored by my colleagues and in return to do the same, so that we all get better together.”

Data Solutions engineer
Colorado School of Mines, PhD in Materials Science
“I was an experimentalist working in the lab and thinking — there must be a smarter way of doing this. I wanted to see computers design new materials and I decided the best way to make that happen was to contribute to a company trying to do that. The best thing about working for Citrine is that I know that the tech is sound. I feel happy that what I am working on is the best solution.”
