Quality people, quality work

Integrity, excellence, and exceptional service in the national interest.

At Sandia, creativity, multidisciplinary thought, and diverse ideas are encouraged. Our unique work requires the collective minds of the nation’s top scientists, engineers, and support staff. Each year, Sandians are recognized for developing a range of breakthrough technologies with commercial applications of global importance.

Sandia embraces diversity, inclusion, and respect as part of our organizational culture. We value individual differences, and we believe that our success depends on the collaborative efforts of a diverse workforce. We also strive to meet the highest standards in workforce fulfillment, safety, security, fiscal accountability, and environmental responsibility.

Our core values
  • Serve the nation. We continually render “exceptional service in the national interest” by fulfilling our government’s requests, anticipating its future needs, and benefitting the nation and the world.
  • Deliver with excellence. We deliver superior technical and managerial performance that meets our nation’s needs and advances the frontiers of science, engineering, and technology.
  • Respect each other. We applaud and nurture the intellect, skills, diversity, and can-do attitude of each individual member of our workforce.
  • Act with integrity. We are honest in times of disagreement and fully discharge our trust rather than compromise for the sake of temporary expedience.
  • Team for great results. We join together on flexible, multidisciplinary teams and value each member’s expert contribution toward our overall success.
