About the region
As part of the upstate high tech corridor, the Rochester area is a hotbed for new technologies and innovation—where a wealth of talented, bright people thrive. You’ll find a culture of discovery and ingenuity that’s supported by well-known area colleges and universities, making this a fertile region for new ideas, products and businesses.
Rochester and New York’s Finger Lake region are full of amenities and attributes that will enrich your life, including majestic waterways and other natural beauty, wineries, museums, sports and recreation, a diversity of restaurants and much, much more.

About the role
Working in the New Product Development (NPD) Engineering department of our Labware and Specialty Plastics Business unit, you’ll help select the manufacturing equipment and develop the process settings to produce our blow molded containers. On our team, you can help us bring new technology and engineering methods to a growing business.
One of the unique aspects of our blow mold design and development in our engineering department is that we provide a wide range of plastic materials, sizes and container types. That means as an engineer here, you’ll have the opportunity to learn a wide range of technologies. And the cross-functional nature of NPD teams makes for a collaborative environment.
Here, you’ll be able to focus on the most interesting engineering tasks. Unlike many other plastic manufacturing companies where the NPD group is also responsible for day-to-day manufacturing operations, we have a separate manufacturing engineering group that takes on these daily functions. We want you to be able to focus on what you love to do and do best.
We offer both a technical career ladder and management career ladder in engineering, so you can build your career by taking on progressively more challenging technical roles, or move into areas like project management or functional management without leaving engineering.
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s ranking in the Fortune 500 grew from 215 to 181 this year, Forbes rated us one of America’s Best Employers, and we are #4 on the Barron’s 500.VIEW ALL ROCHESTER JOBS
