Culture and Values

Our mission: To create world-changing solutions that make people safer, healthier and more productive

At SRI, we push innovation to new levels, solve the impossible, and invent solutions that create long-lasting value for the world. We take pride in our long history of innovation, and we do everything we can to foster an environment that nurtures and rewards our employees’ passion to make a difference in the future.

We’re driven to take the boldest ideas and turn them into reality. SRI employees work in collaborative teams with people who share a commitment to tackling difficult challenges and important needs in society. Our culture is built on respect, curiosity, empowering champions, and a shared drive to excel.

SRI relies on having a diverse workplace that reflects the communities where our employees live and where our clients operate. Together, we deliver impressive results to clients every day, and together, we continue to push the boundaries of innovative thinking.

Our Values

We work with each other, our clients and partners to invent a better future together. We believe the greatest societal problems and opportunities require the most brilliant and pragmatic minds and a collective effort to really make a difference.

A rigorous research environment committed to professional growth

As an established, independent research center, SRI offers researchers a unique blend of resources, influence and professional opportunities.

Our experienced teams collaborate across technical and scientific disciplines to transform big ideas into reality. Researchers at SRI wear a number of hats from day one: Even our newest team members work side-by-side with clients and leading experts across different areas of focus. Everyone is encouraged to publish their research, and we give you the autonomy to pursue personal areas of interest and carve your own research path.

SRI recognizes researchers’ individual contributions with patents that help facilitate commercialization of their technology. When we spin out a new venture or license a technology, we reward employee contributions through our royalty and equity sharing program. Revenue generated by our R&D projects is continually reinvested to advance our mission and support further research activities.

SRI International is committed to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer, making decisions without regard to race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, national origin, age, veteran status, disability, or any other protected class.
