Clevest – Why Work With Us?


Clevest is well established as a technology leader for energy utilities.

We design and develop workforce automation software that connects the mobile workforce to office operations. Built specifically for electric, gas and water utilities, our solutions rapidly automate and optimize any field work activity or process, improving outage response times and worker effectiveness. The results are improved reliability and responsiveness, increased worker safety and productivity, and a reduced environmental impact on traditional utility operations.

Customers all over the world rely on us anytime, anywhere to keep consumers safe with our mission-critical software.  When things go wrong in this industry, the impact can be disastrous for communities.

For example, when electricity or gas goes out, people can freeze to death up north or have heatstroke in the deep south. The effects are even more acute when a major event like Hurricane Irma hits. The Clevest team came to the rescue-we quickly deployed one of our solutions to assist with rescue and recovery efforts, effectively saving lives. 

Our diverse team ranges from 22 to 70 years old and collectively speaks over 28 languages, allowing us to service customers across the globe.

A work environment that balances focused, quiet time with energetic, collaborative spaces

Our team is made up of professionals and we treat each other as such. You have the flexibility and autonomy to manage your time and your work day.

From our reading corner, to our many meeting areas and rooms, and through to our napping corner, we’ve designed an office that allows you the freedom to find the type of workspace to suit the task at hand.

Work in a space where you feel comfortable

At our head office in a suburb of Vancouver, the physical space is open and bright, with 360 degrees of windows. Our facilities are clean and modern. Our kitchen is stocked with complimentary goodies, beverages, and fresh fruit. Treat yourself to freshly ground coffee (or an espresso shot) every morning, or a cup of freshly steeped tea from our tea bar.

At Clevest, we believe health and fitness are important. We have secure onsite bicycle storage, as well as onsite showers and change rooms, and we rent a nearby indoor gym where people from different teams get together every Friday over the noon hour to play soccer.

Next to our office, you’ll find a walking trail, a fitness facility, and two licensed daycare campuses. We have plenty of parking and are easily accessible by transit, including a complimentary shuttle bus taking passengers to and from the Canada Line Skytrain station.

Clevest has been certified as a Great Place to Work after an independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Institute Canada. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.

We foster a collaborative work environment and a positive, supportive culture. We’ve been recognized by BC Business Magazine as one of the top companies to work for in digital technology and tech services, and as the fastest growing company in BC, among our other awards.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Clevest (Richmond, BC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the recruiter, then with the hiring manager, and finally the CEO. Took me on a tour of the office as part of the interview, which helped me understand a bit about their work environment and culture. Everyone I met was very friendly.
