Bose is a research company dedicated to developing breakthrough technologies and quality products that enrich people's lives. To do so, we take a different approach than most companies. The result is a longstanding reputation for innovation and quality.
Our company's founder, who remains our chairman and technical director, is well known in academic and business circles as an acclaimed inventor. He and our leadership team remain fully engaged in the ongoing work and future direction of the company.
Reaching our goals requires uniquely talented individuals with a strong desire to grow and achieve. Individuals who share the values of passion, innovation, excellence, respect and integrity that are embedded throughout our organization today.
You may think of Bose as an audio products company. The 901® Direct/Reflecting® speaker, the Wave® radio and QuietComfort® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones are indeed part of a distinguished research history that sets Bose apart.
But our research has also extended into the following areas:
- A revolutionary automobile suspension system that delivers both the smooth ride of a luxury sedan and the responsive control of a sports car
- Medical testing equipment and durability simulation instruments that can reduce test time and improve product reliability
- Proprietary software that easily adapts sound system performance to the specific acoustics of a room
Because Bose is privately held and puts all of its profits back into the company, such long-term research is not only possible, it is essential. Here, research is a department unto itself, independent of product divisions. That allows it to address a wide variety of projects, including ones having nothing to do with audio.
This multi-disciplinary approach requires broad, systems-level thinkers. Ideas are evaluated primarily on their technical merit and expected benefit to the end consumer. Many of the best ideas are championed from research to development by a small team of dedicated individuals.
We continue to fund and pursue a vast number of projects, both audio and non-audio related. And they need the support of talented engineers like you.
Bose Corporation is committed to being a good neighbor and corporate citizen. The company upholds a longstanding belief that we have a responsibility to give back to the communities where our facilities—and many employees—are located.
We focus our corporate charitable giving in six major nonprofit areas: human services, health, cultural institutions and events, educational programs and projects, civic organizations and environmental programs. Bose also recognizes that volunteer support is an equally important resource for many organizations and encourages its employees to take an active role in community affairs.
