A Career with Vard Electro Canada

We are marine electrical design experts, helping government and other organizations navigate the oceans knowing they have the right systems on-board their vessels to take them further.

We take pride in our electrical system designs and integration work for vessels, and in our team and the collaborative dynamic we foster at our workplace. We strive to provide custom and innovative solutions that work best for our clients, and we’re always looking for like-minded people to join us. Our core values of craftsmanship, fellowship, and salesmanship are at the heart of everything we do.

We are Passionate About What We Do

We treat our clients as partners, and we are passionate about the work we are doing for them and as part of Vard Electro Canada. Together as a team, we are on the same mission. We continuously recognize and celebrate each others’ achievements and cultivate an atmosphere of learning and knowledge sharing.

We Value Diversity & Inclusion

We respect and value the diversity of our people. We encourage openness, problems solving, and creative thinking. We empower individuals to reach their full potential. Our office space is open concept for open communication.

We Value Work/Life Balance

We recognize that our team of talented people work hard. We offer a flexible environment that includes a generous vacation package, flexible start and leave times, flex days, and wellness benefits.

We Value Social Engagement

At Vard Electro Canada, we understand we are all human. We have a social committee that plans events such as birthday celebrations, board game gatherings, and after-work social nights. We like to think we’re a fun group of people, but you can be the judge of that.

My co-op term with Vard Electro Canada was an excellent introduction to the immense amount of work that goes into building complex systems for ships. After returning to UBC to finish my final year of studies, I was thrilled to be offered an opportunity to return and start my career as an Electrical Engineer-in-Training.

The work I am doing challenges the limits of my knowledge daily, and as a result I have grown immensely as an engineer in the relatively short time that I have been working here. I love the people that I work with and believe that Vard Electro Canada is an excellent company to join for establishing a career in the marine industry, and for working with a team of passionate people who really care about each others’ professional and personal growth.
