NVIDIA is recognized throughout the industry as an exciting and rewarding place to work. We were rated by Business Insider as one of the top 25 tech companies to work for, coming in at No. 12.

Our employees are some of the technology industry’s most talented and passionate individuals. Their commitment and drive are behind everything we do, whether it’s powering breakthroughs in medicine and research, setting new bars in high-performance computing, creating next-generation mobile devices, or bringing digital effects to life in immersive gaming worlds or the world’s most exciting movies. We pride ourselves on having a dynamic, high-performance culture where individual contributions are recognized and employees are motivated to achieve.
