At Waters we have two sites in the UK:

In Newcastle, we focus on developing software that is an integral part of our scientific systems. This software is helping scientists all over the world to develop and produce novel solutions to real-world problems, like finding a vaccine for COVID-19. Waters, Newcastle, is a small group (~30) that works as part of a much bigger technical team (~350).

In Wilmslow, our focus is on the development and delivery of mass spectrometry systems and software in a collaborative and dynamic team environment. Our mass spectrometers deliver benefit to customers in many industries and make a meaningful impact to our lives. Our Wilmslow site has ~700 people specialising in everything from Software Development to Hardware and Lab/Scientific based development roles.

Both our Newcastle and Wilmslow sites are home to collaborative and close-knit software development teams. We care about making good software with a good user experience. We give our developers time and resources to learn new skills and languages. We value team communication and collaboration. We have testers integrated into the team. We automate things when it makes sense to do so. We use agile development practices and try to learn from our mistakes.

Diversity & Inclusion

Waters is committed to fostering an inclusive workplace where diversity in all forms can thrive. We believe that celebrating differences and new ideas is not only our responsibility in delivering benefit, but it will also help us reach our full potential by harnessing the totality of the perspectives, beliefs, and backgrounds of all our employees.

We actively partner with organisations such as STEM Women and Stonewall to build our inclusive work culture and ensure that we are reflective of the communities we represent.
