Company Description

Olin College of Engineering seeks employees who are passionate about working collaboratively within and outside of the Olin community to support the College’s mission and vision for the future.
At Olin, we are educating the next generation of engineering innovators and shifting the definition of engineering.
Not only do our students ask, “Who are we designing this for, and what are their values?” They also ask questions about the impact of their work on society.

As Olin evolves under the leadership of our president, Dr.
Gilda Barabino, we seek to become a more diverse and aware community, a place where everyone is a learner and where everyone is an educator.
Olin will become a place where experimentation—including making and learning from mistakes—will be embraced across the institution, not just in the classroom.
Collaboration is key to Olin’s curriculum and culture, and we will work intentionally to reinforce the values and culture to which we aspire.
We are a community that thrives on being together; we value trust.
The College supports teams to collaboratively decide how they can best do their work, and display a commitment to the community, all while providing individuals with overall work-life flexibility.

Olin College is situated on 75 acres in Needham, Massachusetts.
We are approximately ten miles from Boston, one mile from the MBTA Commuter Rail train station, and approximately four miles from the Woodland Station for the MBTA Green Line.
We have plenty of free parking on campus.
You can find more details on our Visiting Campus page.

  • Take a Virtual Campus Tour: From the moment you step on campus at Olin, you feel a buzz of energy and activity—and once you experience it, you want to be a part of it.

Olin College is committed to supporting an innovative, integrated learning and working environment.
As a small campus, the in-person experience and cross-team collaboration is what helps build a strong, dynamic community for our students, faculty and staff.
Typically, most roles at Olin College are intended to be in-person and on-campus.
Certain paid positions may be eligible for flexible working arrangements, at the College’s sole discretion.
