    FMC is a globally diverse organization that offers its employees exciting opportunities to work on challenging projects that are important to the achievement of our strategic objectives. Your education and professional experience are valued and put to use from day one. Your success at completing key initiatives can result in a varied, progressive and fulfilling career with FMC.

We are looking for people to join us in creating, developing, and improving our products, our processes, and our markets.  If you are ready to make a difference every day, FMC is ready to talk to you.


    For over twenty years, FMC Lithium has been innovating, manufacturing and delivering products and technologies to power a cleaner, healthier and more mobile world. We have grown as a leader in the industry through partnership with our customers, thriving in a marketplace full of challenges and opportunities. The success we’ve achieved follows a simple but critical promise to our customers: provide consistent, high quality products, ensure security of supply, and anticipate solutions for future needs; all backed by a deep expertise in material science.

    This expertise and the unprecedented growth in the market made it clear that FMC Lithium is ready to separate into an independently traded company by the end of 2018. This decision was announced in March 2017, and more information can be found here on FMC’s website. The FMC Lithium business is poised to stand on its own with leaders and talent that will drive the organization to greater opportunities and accomplishments. We are investing in our future and our customers’ future, and our best is yet to come.
