Synergy is committed to offering great careers to talented engineers and building science professionals. We offer competitive compensation including profit sharing, health & dental plans, and a RRSP-matching retirement savings plan.
We also provide you with opportunities to grow professionally and personally to help you reach your full potential. This includes promoting attendance at industry events, external professional development programs and mentoring sessions. Our owners are directly involved in the day-to-day project work, so you will be working directly with highly experienced members of our team with a vested interest in your success.
We are committed to offering ownership opportunities to those who demonstrate and provide ongoing excellence in service delivery, technical excellence, building our industry reputation, and client acquisition & maintenance.
We are unlike other engineering firms. Our market differentiators mean we can attract top talent in the industry. These differentiators set us apart:
We are owned and operated by senior engineers and building science professionals. We are not influenced by outside ownership groups or third-party investors. For this reason, we can take a long-term view of the marketplace and are not influenced by outside interests. We value the input of our employees because we are our employees.
When you end your career with Synergy, you will have very likely ended up in a completely different role than when you started. Roles will evolve with time based on the strengths of each team member as well as their specific technical and industry interests.
Our founders have been working together for almost two decades and remain heavily involved in each project. We also have a number of highly experienced and talented project managers, many of which have experience prior to the inception of Synergy.
The culture at Synergy includes an emphasis on building the best team that we can be. We know that a rewarding and enjoyable career means more than hard work. We also know how to have fun!
