Energize your career and community with us.

Bring your expertise to NW Natural.

At NW Natural, we offer rewarding career opportunities and a vibrant work culture. We invite you to join us in providing safe and reliable utility services and renewable energy to better the lives of the communities we serve.

Our vision is to be the leader in service excellence, innovation and environmental stewardship for our customers, while building on our strengths as a trusted energy provider and environmental leader for our industry.

In addition to environmental stewardship, we’re deeply committed to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Our DEI Council started 21 years ago, and today we continue to foster a culture where all employees can experience a sense of belonging, shared purpose and possibility. We continue to broaden that work through a growing fleet of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), which offer employees the opportunity to connect and influence our workplace culture:

  • African American ERG
  • Asian American Network
  • Somos Unidos, LatinX ERG
  • Rainbow Alliance, LGBTQ+ ERG
  • Women's Network
  • Veterans ERG
  • Neurodiversity Network

It’s special to work for a company with such strong core values. The one I identify most with is caring. I immediately felt at home here, and it’s because the people here truly care. They care about each other, and they care about our community. It’s wonderful to be a part of that and to be able to extend that care to our partners and customers.

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.

We are an Equal Employment Opportunity employer.
