“We all play a vital role in SWCA’s success. The ESOP is one way the company encourages the tangible pride all employees take in their work.”

Senior Office Director

Kallin Snow

“Working with the leadership team, all of our discussions come back to whether this shows how much we care for our staff. I am deeply impressed by how our culture of caring is sincere and is truly the driving force and energy behind how our company operates.” 

Senior Accounts Payable Supervisor

Marty Salas

“I joined SWCA in 2019 and it has been so refreshing to be a part of a company that can only be described as bigger than that. It’s a community where we encounter our people living our values whether it’s during an employee going through something in their personal life, something challenging at work, or simply participating in a Gives Back event. We are a community and it’s felt.” 

Nate Wojcik

“SWCA has a very strong sense of community. I am happy to be a part of the SWCA family and surround myself with some of the brightest scientists in the industry.”

Senior Practices Technology Director

“SWCA is great! They provided me with tuition assistance when I received my GIS certification several years ago and then again when I decided to get my MBA in 2020. SWCA helped make both a reality to me!” 

Principal Planning Team Lead

Nuria Holmes

“SWCA’s insurance has made a huge impact on my family life. I was paying $6,000 per year for my diabetic medication prior to joining SWCA, but that cost has gone down to $100 a year under SWCA’s insurance plan. For the first time in 7 years, I can insure my entire family. This company has been a breath of fresh air.”

Notice to Third Party Agencies: SWCA has an internal recruiting department. SWCA may periodically supplement that internal function with the assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters (collectively referred to herein as “Agency”).

SWCA will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to SWCA, including unsolicited resumes sent to an SWCA mailing address, fax machine, or email address, directly to SWCA employees, or to SWCA’s resume database will be considered SWCA’s property. SWCA will not pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume. SWCA will consider any unsolicited candidate resumes submitted by an Agency to have been referred by the Agency free of any charges or fees.

Agency must obtain advance written approval from SWCA’s HR Recruiting Department to submit resumes. This approval must be in the form of a valid fully executed contract for service to respond to a specific job opening. SWCA will not pay a fee to any Agency that does not have such agreement in place.
