Insitu encourages employees to be leaders at all levels in order for us as a company to realize our vision: Decision-making superiority delivered. Our workforce is united by a common dedication to the development of industry-leading systems that collect, process and distribute information for existing and expanding customer markets. This is more than just a work environment and we create more than just products with wings. We are an integrated information and technology company offering a lifestyle that blends the pace and challenges of a growing global company with a love of exploring the best of what the Columbia River Gorge has to offer while also providing opportunities to work at one of our other exciting locations in California, Mississippi or Australia. Insitu invites candidates from all backgrounds and walks of life to explore our available opportunities and become part of our team as we lead the unmanned revolution.
Insitu interns are fully immersed in projects that make a difference within our business and mentored by an Insitu team member who shares their passion. We’re looking for interns who are currently enrolled in an accredited college or university with a GPA of at least 3.0 for the winter, summer, or fall terms.
At Insitu we strive to promote a fun and flexible work environment for our employees. To accomplish this, a majority of our company operates on a 9/80 schedule, meaning work hours are distributed to allow most of our employees to have every other Friday off. In addition to allowing for a better work/life balance, we aim to help our employees take advantage of the awesome places we call home on these off-Fridays through our 9/80 Active Friday Program, which provides various events for Insitu employees free of charge. Windsurfing, wine tasting, waterfall hikes, sternwheeler cruises on the Columbia River and sailing in the Bay Area are just a few examples of Active Fridays our employees have gotten to enjoy thus far.
Availability of the 9/80 schedule and Active Friday program is dependent on individual employee duties and responsibilities. Potential new hires should discuss participation in this program with Insitu Human Resources.
It’s hard to beat the benefits of working for such a diverse, inclusive team, but we always like to rise to a challenge. Our goal is to ensure a competitive total compensation package including wages, benefits, and incentives. Our benefits include:
Foundational to our company values and continued success as a high-performing, community-minded organization is our firm commitment to diversity and inclusion. For us, diversity is in the mix, and inclusion is in making the mix work. That means pioneering products and services through an eclectic workforce in partnership with our distinct communities through an array of business partners for our global customers.
We invite well-behaved dogs to accompany their parents to work in several of our facilities. Having Rambo, Marley, Biff, Jasper and the rest of our furry friends with us in the office not only leads to a more pleasant and productive work environment, but encourages our employees to get to know each other better through their pets. We believe that allowing our canine companions to visit with our employees once every week also boosts morale and lowers stress in the form of a happily wagging tail, a quick ear-scratch and lots of love to their owners and their colleagues.
Please consult Insitu Human Resources or the Insitu Employee Handbook to learn more about our dog-friendly workplace policy before bringing a dog to our facilities.
Insitu’s policy on equal employment opportunity prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, or veteran status. This policy applies to recruiting, hiring, transfers, promotions, terminations, compensation and benefits and also states that retaliation against any employee who files a complaint regarding possible violations of this policy will not be tolerated.
Insitu is committed to taking affirmative steps to promote the employment and advancement of minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans. Insitu develops affirmative action programs to support its commitment to equal employment opportunity, consistent with company policy and the company’s obligations as a contractor to the United States government.
Employment with Insitu may require or otherwise provide access to data and technology controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulation of 1979 (EAR). To ensure applicants will be able to carry out the duties associated with employment without requiring access to controlled information, Insitu may offer employment only to applicants who qualify as a “U.S. person” as that term is defined by those regulations.
Insitu has a policy of drug testing all prospective employees before hire or rehire. Candidates will be required to undergo pre-employment drug testing and receive a negative result for marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, opiates, and phencyclidine (PCP). Recalls and internal transfers may also have to take a drug test if required under Federal regulations or contracts for specific positions.
Insitu’s drug-free workplace policy is posted on the Insitu intranet. Employees could be subjected to drug and alcohol testing, training, and other drug and alcohol program requirements under certain circumstances. If you would like to review these policies prior to your start date, please contact Insitu Human Resources.
