ORCID is a mission-driven, member-supported, community-governed non-profit organization. Our vision is a world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, borders, and time.
Every one of ORCID’s employees is committed to that vision as well.
We believe in and operate by our three main values [read our Dignity at Work statement]. ORCID strives to be:
- Inclusive: We work hard to create a diverse working environment with a global focus.
- Trusted: We are open and transparent in our work, with our members, and with our colleagues.
- Persistent: We are committed to the work of ensuring integrations spread across regions and throughout different institutions.
As a global, 100% remote organization, ORCID is able to find the best and brightest minds in the industry. Our team includes individuals with broad and diverse backgrounds who are globally distributed. We are fluent in many languages, and we all have an innate tech savviness which helps guide our product development, support, and customer experience.
We recently formed a committee of dedicated team members who meet regularly to ensure our global diversity, equity, and inclusion needs are being met, addressed, and amplified. As a fully remote organization, we also have an active committee dedicated to making our individual remote experiences as positive and productive as possible.
Although we are geographically diverse, we are a small, cohesive community of thinkers and doers committed to excellence and to each other.
Working with ORCID, you will experience:
- A talented and friendly team serving a mission-driven, community-governed non-profit
- Competitive compensation and benefits, plus an ORCID-wide closure the first Friday of each month
- A continuous learning environment with opportunities for training and professional development
- Flexible work hours and tools to support our virtual office environment
“I’ve been inspired by the staff commitment and I get to meet diverse people from various backgrounds which has been very enriching for me.“
ANA PATRICIA CARDOZA, ENGAGEMENT TEAM LEAD (MEXICO)
When I joined ORCID five years ago (2015), I had no idea what an amazing journey I was about to experience and that I was going to learn way more than I expected. ORCID was one of the early pioneers of a completely virtual office, with staff all over the world. I’ve been inspired by the staff commitment and I get to meet diverse people from various backgrounds which has been very enriching for me. ORCID hires the best people from anywhere in the world. Working at a nonprofit organization makes me feel that my work really matters, and to be a part of something that profoundly impacts society makes me love my job! ~Ana Patricia Cardozo, Engagement Team Lead (Mexico)
ORCID has an unwavering commitment to supporting staff and families. ~Sarah Hershberger, Director of Operations (United States)
Working at ORCID is fun and challenging. Here you will be involved in different projects that give you the chance of trying and experimenting with new technologies and propose your solutions. Flexible schedule and remote work are a great combination and give us the opportunity of having a good balance of work and life. I really enjoy the long breaks to play with my child or to watch the UEFA Champions League. ~Angel Montenegro; Tech Lead, Registry (Costa Rica)
