working at Taitem

Taitem Engineering is a Living Wage Employer, certified by the Tompkins County Workers’ Center. Taitem provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws. Taitem Engineering complies with applicable state and local laws governing non-discrimination in employment in every location in which the company has facilities. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation, and training.

Taitem recognizes that some hiring practices, such as “knowing someone” at a company, result in discouraging diversity. Companies that hire from within the bubble of their circle of friends and acquaintances often tend to lack diversity. We specifically seek to counter this diversity-limiting practice. We seek a wide pool of applicants for any given job opening. Although there is no harm in contacting someone you know who works at Taitem about possible employment, please be aware that this will not give you any advantage or preference in our hiring decision.

staff positions include:

Full-time: 20 hours per week or more (eligible for benefits)

Part-time: Fewer than 20 hours per week (not eligible for benefits)


Internship opportunities are limited. We prefer students whose academic programs require completion of a career-related internship. We aim to make the assignments interesting, challenging, and meaningful. If you are interested in an internship at Taitem, please send a letter along with your resume to info@taitem.com and include “Internship” in the subject line. Make sure to indicate the period for which you are seeking an internship.
