Our culture is as unique as our workforce. We know diverse perspectives and life experiences are what fuels innovation. And, since innovation is core to what we do, we’re dedicated to creating an accepting and collaborative environment where everyone can bring their best selves to work.
We thrive on new ideas, so we offer continuous opportunities to exchange insights and build relationships with leading experts. We host our own summits, conferences and professional society meetings, which attract some of the best brains across numerous scientific disciplines.
While we operate globally, we’re locally minded. Our social responsibility efforts see PARC contributing funding and time off for our employees to volunteer at their choice of non-profits. We also sponsor organizations such as Teens in Tech and the Computer History Museum.
Since being established in 1970, PARC (then called Palo Alto Research Center) has been central to many of the most important technological breakthroughs of our time. Now we’re a strong team of scientists and support staff who are working across a series of Focus Areas that we believe are integral to the future of innovation. These are AI and Human-Machine Collaboration, Digital Design and Manufacturing, Novel Printing, Smart Devices, IoT and Machine Intelligence, and the Digital Workplace.
PARC is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, which means we’re surrounded by the buzz of some of the best global enterprises, startups, VCs, universities and industrial design firms in the world. We operate globally, providing custom R&D services, technology, guidance and intellectual property to Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies, startups, government agencies and partners.
