Job Description

When you’re part of the team at Thermo Fisher Scientific, you’ll do important work, like helping customers in finding cures for cancer, protecting the environment or making sure our food is safe. Your work will have real-world impact, and you’ll be supported in achieving your career goals.



At Thermo Fisher, our mission is to serve science and improve lives. The Emerging Technologies team is tasked with applying industry best practices to the design, development, and deployment of world-class hardware and software products built to leverage the power and scalability of the cloud, social, mobile, and the internet of things (IoT).

This will require you to confidently learn the basics of the workflows in Life Sciences domains and pair that with your existing technology expertise to help businesses craft functional and technical roadmaps for their products. As initiatives enter in to their requirements gathering and execution phases, you will help projects succeed by coordinating interactions between the business teams, project managers, and the Emerging Technologies group to make sure that the right things get done at the right time.

You are comfortable in a multi-tasking environment frequently interspersed with travel and meetings with a wide variety of groups, yet you also manage to find the time to dive in deep on requirements and solution definition. Most of all, you are excited about the solutions and the dramatic influence they have on all of us.
