Research & Development Career Path

Your career track within R&D can involve product development, new technology implementation or coatings formulation. It may also develop along one of two paths: technical management or technical research.

Our laboratories provide opportunities to participate in long-term coatings research and polymer development initiatives that support our company's innovative products across divisions within the company. Sherwin-Williams' R&D offers challenging, varied assignments: developing processes and delivering products that raise the bar in durability and performance, bringing greater satisfaction to our customers and employees.
