Curious and engaged minds thrive at McMaster-Carr. A career at McMaster-Carr offers talented and driven college graduates the opportunity to gain experience in software development, design, and technical project management. Regardless of your prior experience, you will develop skills in all of these areas, build software that will be used by our employees and customers, and be involved in major business decisions. Mentors will guide you, but development at McMaster-Carr is self-driven: embrace the opportunity to explore, ask questions, be challenged, and make an impact.

Who We Are

At McMaster-Carr we help customers build anything because we offer everything – we stock and distribute more than half a million products. We focus on creating visual and informative product merchandising, building our own systems and technology in-house, and improving operationally to create exceptional customer experiences around the globe. As we look to the future, we apply experimentation and innovation to the lessons learned since our start in 1901. Our success continues with the ideas and commitment of the bright and ambitious people that differentiate McMaster-Carr.

Be Curious

No two career paths at McMaster-Carr are the same. You will navigate your path at your own speed through hands-on experience in a stimulating and collaborative environment. Throughout your career your role will involve:

• Training – Technical orientation serves as an introduction to the company and teaches the basics of programming and our systems. You will learn about our development process and complete a capstone project with a group of your peers.
• Software Development – We work like a tech company and that means we build software. Don’t know how to do that? You’ll learn. Already an expert? We have plenty of work to keep you captivated.
• Design – From the ways we present information to our iPhone App’s user interface, we practice and expose people to design thinking.
• Research / Analysis – We drive our software development by understanding company and customer needs and vet our project decisions with hard data.
• Implementation – Once the software is built, watch your work come alive for customers.
