Careers
Energize your career and community with us.

Bring your expertise to NW Natural.

At NW Natural, we offer more than rewarding career opportunities and a vibrant work culture; we invite you to join us in making a difference in the biggest challenge the world faces today: climate change.
Today we are working with communities on their climate action plans and demonstrating the important role our system plays in reducing the effects of climate change. NW Natural embraces the change that’s needed. Our vision is to champion new technologies and innovative policies that enable a carbon-neutral energy system by 2050. When you come to work at NW Natural, you join a company that's actively working to leave our planet cleaner and healthier for future generations.
We’re also deeply committed to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at NW Natural. Our DEI Council started 20 years ago, and today we continue to foster a culture where all employees can experience a sense of belonging, shared purpose and possibility. We’re committed to doing our part to fight racism, and providing a workplace where every employee has an equal opportunity to grow and thrive.

Over the years, I've had the pleasure to work with some of the kindest, funniest and most generous people in the universe. NW Natural feels more like a community than a company, and it's this quality of culture that has kept me here longer than any other organization I've ever worked for. I am always amazed at the opportunities and experiences the company allows me to explore and participate in both professionally and socially.

One of the things I love about NW Natural is our size, and how it shapes our culture. We’re big enough to be influential in our community and make a real impact in the climate change conversation, but we’re small enough that everyone can make a personal impact.

NW Natural is committed to its employees and their community and cultural values

At NW Natural, our Employee Resource Groups offer employees opportunities to connect, grow and be heard. Cultural celebrations, training sessions and ongoing projects invite all of our employees into an ongoing diversity-and-inclusion conversation. At NW Natural, your perspective will be valued and your voice will count.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council

Through the development of various diversity programs, NW Natural is focused on embracing community and cultural values.
