About Us

Come work with us

At Research Square, we do our best work when we can grow as individuals, enable the success of others, and work collectively toward important goals, while openly acknowledging gaps in knowledge. This ethic has allowed Research Square to grow rapidly and help thousands of researchers succeed.

We believe we can make research communication faster, fairer, and more useful, and we are always looking for new teammates who are purpose-driven and will thrive in our unique, results-focused workplace. We welcome academics, scientists, technophiles, and other talented professionals to join our dynamic and collegial community.

  • Results-Based Environment

    Work when, where, and how you’re most effective. You choose. From your location to hours to attire. If you’re getting the results, you have the autonomy to design your schedule and your environment.

  • Family Friendly

    We know that the best way to support our employees is to also support their family. We are a NC Breastfeeding Coalition Breastfeeding-Friendly Employer and have been featured as a family-friendly business by Family Forward NC. We offer competitive paid leave, flexible work schedules, a private, updated mother’s room at our Durham office, and family-friendly events that allow you to focus on your family.

  • Our "Hub" in Durham

    Our office in Durham is an open-concept, casual-dress, work environment that local employees can enjoy regularly. Our long-distance employees are also invited travel to Durham (all expenses paid) for one of our all-company meetings each year.

Multiple career tracks for different interests and abilities. Time (and a stipend) to pursue other professional goals.

  • Community Impact

    We believe in doing good and support employees who want to give back to the community. Every employee receives ½ a day paid time off each quarter for volunteer work or service in the community. Research Square also matches charitable donations when employees/teams participate in fundraising efforts for qualified non-profit organizations. Additionally, the company has a “do good” fund, which it uses to help financially-struggling researchers find success.
