• CAREERS AT SEQUOIA

Life is short-you should love your work! We believe our employees are our greatest strength, and we work hard to ensure that all members of our staff feel fulfilled and valued. We invest considerable time and effort in preparing our staff to constantly take on new and expanded roles and responsibilities. The people who thrive at Sequoia are hungry for knowledge, thirsty for new experiences, and eager to go outside their comfort zone.

Sequoia’s biologists are trained to work across all of our services and markets, from utilities to private clients, and from construction environmental compliance to restoration planning and implementation. We train all levels of staff in all areas of consulting as well. They learn how to develop cost estimates, the scopes of work, and full, complete proposals. They learn the financial aspects of consulting as well as the applied aspects. In the field, our biologists are trained across many disciplines, so although they may be wildlife biologists, they will learn to identify rare plants as well as understand and apply stormwater best management practices, for example.

Sequoia offers a unique team-based culture with a corporate commitment to maintaining a positive work-life experience and creating a diverse “ecosystem” that fosters the exchange of ideas from all perspectives. In 2021, our staff launched our Sequoia Coalition for Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity (SCEID) initiative to ensure our company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is carried throughout our services and culture.

Sequoia provides excellent compensation and a comprehensive benefits package, including career advancement opportunities, training, and professional growth opportunities, and health and dental insurance, matching 401k, paid training time off, mental wellness, as well as vision and dental reimbursable accounts, and corporate pet insurance.

Our Walnut Creek office is pet-friendly, and you’ll be welcomed by a multitude of Sequoia’s pet ambassadors if you decide to visit us.

“I’ve worked with the Sequoia team on dozens of projects covering a wide variety of scales, complexities, and biological resource issues throughout California. They’ve always maintained high technical standards and integrity, are easy to work with, and are extremely professional in their approach. Trust is an important quality in any professional collaboration, and it’s been an important factor in my work with the Sequoia team.
