ARPA-E encourages highly-qualified candidates to join the country’s first federal government agency devoted to transformational energy technology research and development.
Since we opened our doors in 2009, ARPA-E has been fortunate to attract many of the country’s brightest minds to guide the agency. Thanks to these experienced scientists, engineers, students, young researchers, and entrepreneurs, we’ve made an impressive start fulfilling ARPA-E’s ambitious mission of running programs to enhance energy security, reduce energy-related emissions, and promote our country's technological lead in the world.
ARPA-E is proud to have a unique organizational culture that is distinct from most government agencies. Our agency is a place of few formalities that cultivates teamwork, innovation, and fresh ideas. Our dedicated staff enjoy a results-focused culture of frank debate and discussion, collaborative planning, and fast action. Within this environment, ARPA-E has quickly become known for impressive performance and rapid results.
