R&D

Industry Overview:
 

Sophisticated innovation and breakthroughs add value to a company, enabling it to grow products, expand its portfolio and succeed long-term in the competitive marketplace. R&D requires smart spending of resources and an understanding of the market, so business, sales, marketing or design experience often help.

A passionate curiosity and an ability to develop new solutions will power R&D to undergo the many trials needed to make breakthroughs that will work in the market. The Three Es of R&D are Explore, Evaluate and Execute.

R&D often works with people from many other disciplines, so an ability to communicate and enjoy teamwork is important. Most of all, R&D calls for self-discipline and persistence to work within the bounds of cost, feasibility, government regulations and the customer’s desires. Ropella understands that R&D people often are motivated by more than money and titles, and we can find the right personnel for your company.
