Established in 2018, Philip Morris International’s R&D center in Armenia is the third in the global network of R&D centers set up by PMI to reach its vision of smoke-free future.
PMI is engaged in the development and commercialization of Reduced-Risk Products (“RRPs”). RRPs is the term we use to refer to products that present, are likely to present, or have the potential to present less risk of harm to smokers who switch to these products versus continued smoking. Our aim is to decrease the impact smoking has on public health. This is why we are developing a portfolio of smoke-free products and are assessing their impact on individual and public health with rigorous scientific methods.
2022 is the forth year that Philip Morris Armenia is awarded with Top Employer certificate in Armenia.
We cooperate with a number of local research institutions and universities on joint projects. Our team is expanding dynamically and our professionals work in the following primary directions:

I am highly driven by PMI’s exposure and vision for a smoke-free world. As a professional, I am appealed by the variety of Data and the diversity of projects here: from Mathematical Modelling to the frontiers of Machine Learning. Also, the network of other Data Scientists globally is very inspiring. PMI cares for its people and invests in their advancement. Not a surprise we were recognized as a Top Employer third year in a row. I love the company culture here and enjoy my daily work.

PMI Science has changed my perspective about career. Working in an international team that empowers and invests in you, having company culture refined for decades, and being part of purposeful work impacting millions of lives are factors that drive me, and the whole team, for success. From the first day of employment, the onboarding process was so smooth that the integration with the team both in R&D in Armenia and Switzerland was seamless.

In fact, I was quite interested in the work of R&D centers overall. And when I received this job, I started noticing things that were well expressed in PMI Science. The first thing is the work environment and culture. Communication with the leader is direct, you know your goals and the ways how you can achieve those. The work environment is rewarding և helps to learn new things. One more thing is that our team is growing fast, thus has a great role in the development of the company.
