When you ask anyone here to share their favourite thing about working here, the answer is always the same: “The people”.


You’re more than just a number

Our people are what truly sets us apart. We offer the opportunity to work with high-performing teams and collaborate with some of the industry's top minds. And no matter your position, our focus on a common purpose makes for a supportive environment and approachable management team. At Nanometrics, you’re much more than an employee number.

Not too big, not too small.

We think we’re just the right size.  


We’re small enough that you can easily see, feel and experience your impact on business outcomes. You’ll feel like part of a team from day one, and you can easily get to know everyone across the organization.


We’re large enough that we’re able to invest in our people and their ideas. The principles of science and technology are fundamental to our organization. Plus, we’re large enough (and growing!) that we can provide internal opportunities for career growth.

“I was attracted to Nanometrics because of the variety of software and hardware products.  There’s always something new to learn.

You have input into how things work right from the start, and everyone is really enthusiastic about what they do. It’s a great place to work!”

“What attracted me to Nanometrics was the opportunity to travel and meet new people. It’s my job to ensure seismic stations across the continent are performing normally.

The majority of the time spent in the field is in remote areas, often only accessible by off-road vehicles. Plus, the electronics I deploy are world-class,cutting-edge technology. Knowing that Nanometrics is a world leader in seismology keeps me showing up for work.”
