    About us:

    Our employees describe us as very fast, very flexible and lots of fun.  We are a young, growing company, just shy of 1,200 employees in approximately 50 offices around the country. 

    In a nutshell, we provide environmental services – air, water and soil testing services, water treatment services, soil remediation services and waste-to-energy services.  Regulations and the public’s desire for sustainability drive the need for our services but our unique capabilities allow us to add value to clients beyond environmental compliance.  For our families and communities, we strive to protect the air they breathe, the water they drink and the soil on which they feed.

    The environmental services industry in which we operate is dynamic by definition but because we are acquiring companies and growing rapidly, our portfolio of services and capabilities are also rapidly evolving.  At the heart of our rapid evolution is our talent – our teams and our people – who are asking for better systems, processes and tools to help with communication, career development, training, transparency and trust between our geographically dispersed managers and team members.  We are looking for a dynamic, experienced Senior Vice President of our Human Resources who has an incredible attention to detail, who has experience with managing a rapidly growing and dispersed workforce (hired organically or through acquisitions), who thrives in a fast-paced environment and who is comfortable being a part of (and driving) change.  We believe the work we do, by definition, is incredibly meaningful and our team chemistry and cross-functional collaboration is a large part of our success to-date.  We are looking for a leader that fits naturally into our culture.

    Position Summary:

    Reporting to the CEO, the SVP of Human Resources (HR) is a core member of the corporate team and will be based out of Orange County, CA.  He/She will be responsible for all HR functions, for helping develop and retain our talent, and for establishing culture-defining programs.  The ideal candidate will have exquisite communication skills, senior leadership and management experience, a ‘roll-up-your-sleeves’ independence, and an affinity for fast-paced and rapidly growing environments.
