Environmental Scientist (Data Analysis)
You want to become an environmental scientist because you care about the planet, and you enjoy tackling the tough, important challenges.
You’re looking for a firm with a purpose that engages you, and a culture that energizes you.
We’re Floyd|Snider and we’ve been looking for you.
We’re an employee-owned environmental consulting firm offering strategy, science, and engineering solutions in the private and public sectors. Founded in 1996, Floyd|Snider has consistently been recognized as one of the premier firms in the Northwest and a top place to work. Our people love it here because we don’t do cookie-cutter work; we work collaboratively on complex, fascinating projects.
Now we’re looking to add a new Environmental Scientist to our collaborative team that is accomplishing high-profile remediation and sediment allocation projects in the Pacific Northwest. We’re looking for someone who exemplifies our commitment to technical excellence, environmental responsibility, and customer service.
That’s where you come in.
As our new Environmental Scientist, your priority will be to lead our data entry and analysis. You’ll review of historical and modern documents to gather, evaluate, and compile data relevant to the task at hand. You’ll input data to, and perform sensitivity analysis on, environmental models simulating contaminant release. Then you’ll analyze the data and model results to answer the questions pertinent to those projects.
This role involves a great deal of collaboration, as every project we work on requires reliable data and strong analysis. You’ll work with project managers and other team members, bringing your analytical mind to overarching project strategy discussions and targeted research questions. Your ability to prioritize and easily adapt to changing circumstances will help you manage smaller tasks within the context of larger project goals.
You can count on growing here, as you work regularly with a diverse range of sites and data sets. We’ll be relying on you to see things others don’t, from gaps in data to larger implications. You’ll also become adept at finding your place on different teams, speaking up with your ideas and discovering how you can add your unique contribution to each project you touch.
Beyond your relevant knowledge and expertise, we’re looking for someone with the following qualities:
- Detail-oriented – you understand the data-driven nature of environmental decision-making and are dedicated to maintaining high-quality standards for data entry and QC.
- Organized – having an eye for detail doesn’t prevent you from seeing the big picture. You’re able to juggle competing priorities without dropping the ball.
- An excellent communicator – you’re a master at translating the complicated insights in your head into words your audience will understand. You know how to achieve clarity in every medium. You’re also comfortable speaking in groups, enjoy sharing your thoughts, and brainstorming with a team.
This is a full-time, permanent position with typical hours from Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm. There will be some overtime based on your projects, and you’ll get that back in extra time off. Regional travel may be a part of this role. You won’t typically go more than 3 hours away, and we’ll cover all your expenses. Usually you’ll return home every night, but for longer trips, we’ll make sure to get you home for weekends.
We offer an excellent compensation package, which includes a competitive salary, commensurate with experience. We offer a bonus structure, equity and ownership options, 401K, a full benefits package, and life insurance.
Your professional growth is a priority to us. You’ll have our support to further your development and participate in conferences.
Working with Us:
We’re a socially responsible business that considers all our stakeholders – environment, planet, community, and supply chain. We’re serious about doing business better. These values led us to become a B Corporation. That’s why we are always finding ways to give back: and so will you, with one week of paid volunteer time each year.
We’ve got a spectacular group, and if you enjoy teaming up with some very smart people in a variety of fields solving real, complex, and important problems, then this is the place for you.
Here’s our list of must-haves:
- Degree in the sciences (chemistry, toxicology, oceanography, biology, etc.), Masters preferred but not required
- 1-2+ years of experience in environmental consulting, analytical testing, or comparable experience
- Previous environmental modelling or data management experience
Anything on this list would be an asset:
- Experience with environmental research or study design
- Experience with evaluation of environmental data, including statistical evaluation and quality assurance checks
- Experience presenting data in a graphic/visual medium
- Experience evaluating chemical fate and transport processes in the environment
- Experience performing environmental audits or compliance
How to Apply:
Our online application will give you the option to apply to this role as a complete person – not just a resume. The application will assess your qualifications, personality traits and workplace preferences, and should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. After submitting, you'll receive an email inviting you to log in and view your assessment results.
We strive to build a team that reflects the diversity of the community we work in and encourage applications from traditionally underrepresented groups such as women, visible minorities, Indigenous peoples, people identifying as LGBTQ2SI, veterans, and people with disabilities.
We will review applications as they are received, with priority given to those who complete the full assessment. We look forward to hearing from you.
