What we are looking for

Our workforce is diverse, but people who thrive at Elementis share some of the same qualities. These qualities help us to identify the kinds of people who will strengthen our culture and help us grow and succeed.  

  • Team players who trust, support, and rely on each other. Open-minded people with a positive, “can-do” attitude who are willing to help when and where they’re needed. They thrive on collaboration, respect and care about their colleagues, and want to create a safe and inclusive working environment for everyone. They can be counted on to take their work and responsibilities seriously — but to not take themselves too seriously.  
  • Creative, future-thinking people with an entrepreneurial spirit. Curious, energetic people who are passionate about their work and always ready for a new challenge. They seek out new and better ways of contributing and creating solutions, and they are willing to challenge the status quo. They are customer-focused and driven to help bring our company to the next level.  
  • Proactive, self-directed people who challenge themselves to learn and grow. People who can work and learn independently. They are continually looking for ways to improve the quality of their work, expand their skills, and develop their career, and they are able to accept and act on constructive feedback.  
  • Honest, ethical people who embrace our culture and are guided by our Values. People who genuinely, dependably, and passionately want to do the right thing — for our company, customers, communities, and colleagues.
