Our employees join Chemonics from all over the world. And while we may call different places home, together we form one team and one community. We’re united by our conviction to do development better, and we can only do that by learning, growing, and innovating—together. This is life at Chemonics.


Chemonics is a leading development partner for a reason: our people. We’re 5,000 experts in more than 100 countries, and 90% of us work in communities we call home. Our diversity and size are by design: solving the world’s challenges—from food insecurity to climate change—requires a spectrum of experiences and expertise. We tap our collective knowledge to create connections—local and global, human and technological—that allow us to share best practices and move quickly to solve real problems.

When employees join Chemonics, they join a community—a community that invests in them, supports them, and encourages them to bring their best and authentic selves to the work we do.

Our professional development programming offers Chemonics staff the change to sharpen their skills, build leadership acumen, and scale innovative solutions to challenges in their local communities or their technical fields. Staff have opportunities to contribute to bringing in new business, embarking on research trips to learn more about the challenges and goals of the communities we serve, and taking on “rotations” on projects or departments to learn about new side of Chemonics’ work.

Our diversity, equity, and inclusion programming offers professional development, community building, leadership and mentorship opportunities, cross-cultural learning, and a chance to build a more inclusive, equitable company and development sector.

Our benefits and policies, including a hybrid in-person and remote culture, support Chemonics staff and their families to live healthy, well-rounded lives and give our employees the flexibilities and resources to thrive both in and outside of work.
