We work in animal care and health, accounting, audience research, conservation, development, exhibit planning and design, facilities maintenance, guest experience, marketing, public relations, sustainable practices and many more areas.

But whatever we do, we all have a chance to make a difference every day — for the animals, for conservation and for our guests. We do it in a team-based culture, where partnership, collaboration and innovation are the standards. We love to spark compassion, curiosity and conservation for the aquatic animal world, by sharing a story about our favorite animal or pointing out our favorite exhibit. We want everyone who comes through our doors to have an inspiring experience.

Our passion for our work shows: Shedd is a respected leader in the museum and aquarium profession worldwide, and it’s the friendliest place in town. If you want to provide great service, make a difference and inspire others to make a difference, join our team!
