Director, Production Engineering
One reason I love my job is it's never boring. We move fast and for me it’s so satisfying to fight, learn, and win together! Plus, everyone is very open minded and straight forward; we are all in the same team and operate as one. Because Teledyne FLIR operates across the globe, we have to make sure dialogue works efficiently through different time zones and different cultures. This helps build a feeling of trust that makes it possible for everyone to participate in decisions and continuously improve. We work hard to reach stretch targets, ensuring we remain in a market-leading position even when the world around us offers both difficult challenges and thrilling opportunities.
Country Manager, Sales
For me, the best part of my job is introducing cutting-edge technologies to the market and then seeing those technologies support our customers. I even enjoy seeing FLIR thermal cameras in action at the stadium where I take my family to watch baseball.
The culture here at Teledyne FLIR is welcoming to new challenges and new ideas, which is perfectly suited to self-motivated people who like innovation and challenges. I like to think my team works as “One Team,” supporting each other across different functions and countries to achieve the same goal.
Director of Science & Technology
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Teledyne FLIR's Detection business works in Chemical Agent Detection using enzymes. So, when my company was acquired by FLIR, I had the chance to apply my personal skills in novel and innovative ways, which really appealed to me.
Now as a director of science and technology for Detection, I'm responsible for innovation in sensors, biotechnology platforms, and novel materials. It's so rewarding to take a product from invention to commercial sale, and this really is a unique opportunity to do cutting edge work and make a genuine impact.
FLIR has matched and exceeded my expectations and I am proud to say that my team works very hard and is deeply engaged with our projects.

Global VP of Strategic BD and Marketing
Pasadena, California, USA
Throughout my career, Teledyne FLIR has supported my professional development, providing opportunities to expand into new roles and develop new skillsets.
I began my career in Field Sales, where after a few years of success I was promoted to Director of Sales. Along the way, I was given stretch assignments that gave me exposure into Marketing, Product Management, and Supply Chain. It also allowed me to work with other countries and cultures globally, which prepared me for my current role. When pursuing my MBA, Teledyne FLIR both helped offset portions of my tuition costs and helped balance my workload.
After 17 years with the company, I still love working with our highly motivated teams and cool technology to help our customers solve some of their most challenging applications. Whether it’s improving productivity and quality, improving safety, or literally saving lives, our Teledyne FLIR team has a measurable impact on the lives of our customers and our partners.

A great thing about Teledyne FLIR is the opportunity to learn and grow. It’s a fast-paced and exciting environment that celebrates different opinions, cultures, and people with different backgrounds and experiences. It’s a place where curiosity is encouraged and learning is prioritized. I love the variety, and that I get to work with so many different teams and talented people. It’s a cliché, but no one day is the same, which keeps things fresh and interesting. The company offers constant learning opportunities and is open and supportive of career advancement within the company. I wouldn’t have progressed in my career at the pace that I have without the great support that I receive from my peers and my managers.
In my time with the company, I’ve had the chance to attend external trainings and further my education in marketing strategy. The support doesn’t stop at training or courses. We have a really strong leadership team who is willing and prepared to help in your on-the-job learning, and they offer different types of training (like the FLIR University courses) to aid in your career progression.
When I started at Teledyne FLIR, I had just graduated with my master’s degree in design and engineering, and my goal was to become a product manager. Teledyne FLIR has supported me in every step of the journey by giving me suitable challenges, allowing me to transition between roles that gradually grew my responsibility while also giving me great freedom to explore paths that have been of interest to me. The first four years at Teledyne FLIR has passed so quickly, and I am now product manager for several products that are key to our business. I love to be out in the field with users to understand their needs, see our products in action, and explore ideas for how we can improve our solutions. I also enjoy working closely with the development teams in R&D and seeing ideas progressing into real products.
Director of Engineering and Site Manager
I was offered the opportunity to work at Teledyne FLIR more than 11 years ago, and I didn’t hesitate. When I go anywhere and see cameras or software that my team have taken part to develop, or when I see our products in movies or documentaries, I feel proud to think that I contributed to make them possible — to see the transcendence of my job, and that it contributes to improve people’s lives, and saving lives and livelihoods.

Team Leader, Sales
Nashua, New Hampshire, USA
I stepped away from the work force several years ago to raise my children. When I was looking for a full-time professional role again, it was not easy finding the right fit at first. Teledyne FLIR checked all the boxes for me. This company encourages growth and invests in its employees. My managers have always been supportive whenever I have expressed the desire to take on new, challenging projects or attend classes to further develop my professional skill set.
When people ask me what company I work for I proudly tell them Teledyne FLIR. I love that we offer so many products that keep people safe – from our thermal cameras for firefighters, to our thermal security line, and our premium handheld cameras that provided elevated skin temperature screening to businesses during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a wonderful feeling to know you work for a company that is making a difference in the world.

Manager, Cooled Detector Fabrication

My opportunity and career growth at Teledyne FLIR has been as dynamic and rewarding as the day-to-day job itself. This collaborative, problem-solving environment allows me to have my hands on many different pieces of the puzzle, providing me a continuous stream of new skills and knowledge in both in Engineering and Operations. During my nine years with the company, I’ve had the opportunity to work in Systems Engineering, collaborate with teams around the globe, return to school to get my Masters’ degree in Business Excellence—which was offset by the company—and I now manage our Cooled FPA Operations team.
Today, I consider myself a bridge between the Research and Development and Operations side of the business. It is exciting to further perpetuate this inclusive and innovative culture through activities like the mentorship program, a flexible work environment, and demo day that allows our teams to showcase the ever-improving capabilities of our products and technology.
