Sublimely Different: R&D with purpose in mind

Riverside Research is a nonprofit research and development organization delivering solutions for some of our country’s most challenging technical problems. 

Riverside Research provides R&D, high-end technical services and prototype solutions for national security and public interests. We collaborate widely with university researchers. 

We're competitive. In the best way.

Our compensation and benefits are competitive because it’s what we do with our profits that makes us special. Since we don’t pay dividends to shareholders and we’re a nonprofit, our profits are re-invested in independent R&D projects, our employees, community outreach initiatives, and industry-leading employee benefits.
