Development Specialist II

B.Tech. in Chemical Engineering and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering

At Praxair you are challenged every day. In my role as a Development Specialist in R&D, I enjoy the freedom to express my intellectual creativity and generate new approaches to solving problems. I work with talented colleagues across the organization to help take my projects from concept to commercialization — helping us win more business as a result. From helping our own plants consume less energy to improving productivity and sustainability for our customers in the glass, chemicals, metals and wastewater treatment industries — I feel my work has a positive impact on the world around me and I play a part in making our planet more productive.

Praxair is filled with talented people who are experts in their field. I am constantly learning and growing from their knowledge and insight. The commercial application of what I do means I have to build effective relationships and be credible with engineering, operations and business colleagues. This is a valuable component for my future development.

Praxair is an environment where you drive your own learning and shape your career progression. You’ll get all the support you need, but how much you grow depends on how much you push yourself. I have the opportunity to develop in a technical capacity as an individual contributor or broaden my influence in a management role. At the end of the day it’s my career and I own it.

I feel my work has a positive impact on the world around me and I play a part in making our planet more productive.
