A career is an individual’s journey of learning and work.


Whether SHN is a quick side-trip or a long and rewarding segment of your journey depends on the similarities of our future paths. Based on almost 40 years in business and our Vision Statement, SHN's path is one that values enhancing our communities and creating a rewarding environment for employees and shareholders. Enhancing our communities means that much of our work is geographically located in southern Oregon and northern California. We perform work for many kinds of clients (see Clients Served), with a special emphasis on local governments and special districts, and on small and medium-sized businesses.

  • Ability and even preference for working in teams
  • High value on life-long learning
  • Striving for a balance between work, family life, and health
