Meet some of our team:

RYLEY
Operations Engineer

Hi, my name is Ryley and I’m an Operations Engineer. My role is always expanding, but generally I support the design and operation of water and wastewater treatment facilities. I’ve been providing technical engineering and design experience as part of the Envirosearch Operations Inc. team for three years. I graduated from the University of Guelph, specializing in Environmental Engineering with a background in municipal design, surveying and quality inspections.

Envirosearch is a small company with an amazing culture. I enjoy being able to work on a variety of different projects, which allows me to continually expand my knowledge and experience. I love the challenge of finding solutions to technical issues! Large companies would have pigeon holed me, putting in time doing the same thing over and over again, and limiting my growth potential. At Envirosearch, each day brings a new challenge, which is a perfect fit for me and my professional aspirations.

LYNDA
Information Systems Manager

Hello, my name is Lynda and I have over 25 years of experience in the water and wastewater industry. My background includes a degree in Chemistry, a diploma in Environmental Engineering and certification in microbiology. I’m an analytical thinker and I enjoy solving whatever problems come my way. Currently, I manage legislative compliance and licensing, as well as all training requirements.

I found my way into this business because of my passion for science, and I strongly believe clean, safe water is a human right. I also believe everyone needs to enjoy life, so for me that includes kayaking the river and sailing during the summer months, and quilting or spinning yarn in front of the fire during the winter.

We work closely with academic institutions to recruit student talent, which provide mutual benefit between employer and student: students gain valuable field experience while we have the opportunity to train and screen potential full-time candidates.
