Join Our World-Class Team!

Two things differentiate the majority of computing jobs—especially in the Silicon Valley—from Computing at LLNL: We take on epic projects that private industry cannot imagine, and we do so in service to the nation. These differences have been the magnet that have kept great people hard at work for the future, for the country, and for humankind.

Computing is a unique organization with a rich 65-year history steeped in supercomputing successes and scientific discoveries. We offer flexibility to move between projects, opportunities to pursue new research, access to some of the most advanced computing facilities in the world, and, most importantly, the thrill of knowing you’re contributing to pioneering science.

In Computing, creative technology, advanced research, multidisciplinary collaboration, and big projects converge, creating one of the most stable, stimulating work environments anywhere. Furthermore, LLNL is ranked in the top 40 of Glassdoor's Best Places to Work.

From software developers and applied math researchers to hardware architects and networking experts, computing at LLNL requires a top-flight workforce with a broad skill set. Check out our internships page or visit LLNL’s careers site to see how you can be a part of the future.
