The Ellison Institute of Technology values emotional intelligence and communication with empathy and respect for others. We seek to build a diverse group of people who are curious, have a deep sense of responsibility and the grit needed to achieve excellence.

We believe that an inclusive, collaborative team environment is just as important to our mission as stethoscopes and microscopes. We strive to always provide employees a supportive atmosphere so they feel confident taking creative risks toward innovation.
