New to Danaher? Start here!

Imagine you’re just starting your career. You take a position at a company that’s new to you, thinking you’ll be there for a year or two. Fast forward two decades: You’re at the same parent company—or maybe you’ve gone somewhere else great—and taken on several different roles, including leadership positions. You’ve had inspiring mentors, and you’ve been a mentor to others, across diverse industries and geographies. You’ve received the structure, focus, and support you need to not only achieve your goals but far exceed what you originally envisioned for yourself.

These possibilities are all realities at Danaher. Because of Danaher’s unique ecosystem, there’s always an opportunity to develop new skills, shift to a new role, and lead. 

Danaher is our corporate parent company that provides vision, strategy, and support to our people around the world. We’re made up of three platforms: Life Sciences, Diagnostics and Biotechnology. 

  • Life Sciences: We make cutting-edge R&D possible for leading Life Science companies around the world, accelerating innovation that helps people lead longer, healthier lives. We have a proud record of partnering with academic, clinical and government scientists, applying our scientific and operational expertise to help them understand diseases and infections, pioneer more effective treatments and develop more efficient workflows. Across the Life Sciences, we work collaboratively to drive advancements towards real-life impact.
  • Diagnostics: We strengthen the effectiveness of diagnostics wherever health care happens. Our diverse family of Diagnostics businesses tailor proven methodology, advanced tools and integrated solutions to solve our customers’ most pressing challenges. We focus on quality, productivity, automation and scale, with global reach that ensures we’re able to deliver superior diagnostic capabilities wherever and whenever they are needed.
  • Biotechnology: Our Biotechnology segment brings together dedicated technical expertise and talent to help our customers commercialize the next generation of therapeutics. Our broad and deep portfolio of tools and technologies, global scale, and best-in-class service provides critical support from discovery to delivery, for customers spanning researchers, emerging biotechnology, large-scale biopharmaceutical, and contract manufacturers.

Our platforms share critical missions and expertise, and together they enable Danaher’s global reach and power to help save lives. Across the platforms are more than 15 independent businesses. Each has its own leadership, culture, associates, and bottom line, and all are driven by the larger purpose of helping realize life’s potential. 

What does the Danaher family, as we sometimes call it, mean for you? In a word: opportunity. When you join us, you’ll become part of a proven global corporation and have the chance to make an impact at your OpCo. And because we’re united by the same set of resources, tools and processes—with the Danaher Business System as our foundation—you can move between OpCos to grow your career or collaborate with your counterparts across OpCos. Whatever your career goals, you can achieve them within Danaher.
