Working at Insanitek R&D in any of it’s divisions is not like working at any other company. First of all, it’s an R&D company that is focused on three different aspects:

  1. Research and development for independent inventors and innovators. This is where the artists, creators and innovators comes in. Insanitek R&D is designed to make these individual’s dreams blossom into reality with a lot of hard work and mentors helping you along. There is another side to the R&D division as well. On this other side we plan to gather together engineers and innovators that can work on someone else’s ideas to make them come to life.
  2. Publication is part of research, and Insanitek is striving to make as much of the research as possible open source. We have a community that we can tap into for ideas, both in a virtual forums as well as in the offices. While we don’t want to ruin the confidentiality and allow their ideas to swept away from them, we do want to provide an atmosphere that is helpful. We do this by publishing research done in the labs and offering them up for peer review for anyone — including the public — to access, recreate, and discuss the experiments and results. Like the R&D department there is a flip side that is for others outside of the Insanitek community where we can offer our science publishing and PR work for others. To this end, there is a need for good science writers and journalists at all levels and all fields that can be available for both in house and out of house work.
  3. Educating the public about our research is not only good marketing according to modern standards, but it’s what we are passionate about. After all, we love our field, our work, and our lives. We want to share our passions with you, whatever they are. Soon to be active is the educational division of Insanitek where we put together lessons, lesson plans, activities, and videos to pass on our knowledge to anyone that wants to learn it.

No matter what division or role you take on at Insanitek, when you become part of the staff, you become part of a team that strives for excellence in both this company and your career.
