Work with us

Our engineer philosophy

Engineers learn through doing.

At Ascend, we give you immediate, real-world experience and expect you to be a leader on your first day. You won’t sit in a conference room training for six months, three months or even a day. You will report to work on your first day to—you guessed it—work for Ascend. As an Ascend engineer, you’ll get your feet wet immediately, and you will have influence over your job description. If something can be done better, make a case and do it. We offer the opportunity to work on many projects across disciplines in our world-scale manufacturing facilities.

We pair up our experiential-learning culture with an Engineer Development Program that puts you in the driver’s seat. The program gives real-world information and a team-mentoring approach that allows you to tailor the training and support you need.


Co-op and interns

Co-ops and interns apply engineering and safety principles in a chemical and/or polymer manufacturing environment.
