Working at Nearfield Instruments 

Nearfield Instruments brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop a revolutionary high throughput atomic force microscopy (AFM) system, enabling atom-scale resolution 3D metrology at unrivaled throughput. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced metrology machines.

Those most creative minds in science and technology come from everywhere. Representing over 20 different cultures makes Nearfield Instruments a richly international, fun and diverse work environment where respect for the individual is key. Our people bring variety in their backgrounds, point of view and ideas. We encourage everyone to be their original, authentic and best selves.       

At NFI we rely on each other’s qualities, capabilities and we motivate one another to get the best out of ourselves and each other. We are here to support one another, and colleagues are there to help you. TEAM is very important, Together Everyone Achieves More. 

Our Core Values

These describe who we are and what we stand for. What binds us and how we treat one another:

  • Lead, not follow.
  • Open and honest.
  • Empowerment and trust.
  • Passion and determination.
  • Fun and open-minded.
  • “to boldly go”.



NFI – the ‘F’ is for fun: work hard play hard

Besides being a hard-working and ambitious company, we value your work-live balance and the time for some relaxation. Boost your energy by playing a match of table tennis or clear your mind during our weekly run with colleagues.

There are weekly lunches organized so you can catch up with those who you do not speak to daily. You are free to have your lunch outside on a sunny day, there are picknick tables where you can catch some sun!

Celebrations, big or small are very important to us. Milestones or just another weekend approaching, there is always a reason to raise a glass on our bi-weekly Friday Drinks!
