Job Seekers

Your needs are different. Big job boards serve many people, but when looking for a job in optics and photonics we offer a much more targeted audience.

  1. Companies have their own systems, so they don’t need ours. That’s right, we pass you directly to the company. We don’t force you to fill out forms, we put you directly in touch with the employer.

  2. An account is not necessary. While we’d love to have you create an SPIE account for a host of other reasons, it’s not necessary when searching for jobs. We want you to find a job and we want our partners to find employees, and if that happens it’s a win-win for everyone.

Your next job is just a click away!
