Title:  R&D Studies Scientist

R&D Studies Scientist

Transitions Optical has been pioneering and leading the photochromic industry for more than 25 years. We are part of the EssilorLuxottica Group and we are all about living Seamlessly. That’s what our products enable, whether it’s changing from light to dark without breaking stride. Or the freedom of using a product that’s so perfect for you that you forget you’re even wearing it. It’s what our company does. Whether that’s through innovating in both style and technology, together, seamlessly. Or through marrying the start-up spirit with the heavyweight power of the global leader.

There are people who can see the future. There are people who can build it. And there are people who can do both. We’re looking for the latter.
