A diverse business community supports the region’s ongoing growth as well as its famous entrepreneurial vigor. Innovative corporations including Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Expedia, and Costco are the anchors of the local economy. Fast-moving high-tech firms and the fact that the region is a center of trade with Asia and the Pacific Rim add a unique edge.

We also contribute to our local community through our company-wide “Caring, Serving, Giving” program, which includes:

  • Day of Caring – Each year the firm shuts down for one day so that we can participate in an all-firm volunteer day that benefits a local charity.  Organizations we have worked with in the past include Northwest Harvest, EarthCorps, and Jubilee Reach.
  • United Way Campaigns – Each year we coordinate a United Way campaign. We raise funds through the annual campaign and a chili cook-off.
  • The Big Climb – We sponsor a team of employees and their friends/families to participate in The Big Climb, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Washington/Alaska chapter’s largest fundraiser.
  • Food Lifeline’s Food Frenzy – We compete against other local businesses to raise funds and food for hungry children in our community during the summer months.
  • Treehouse Pajama Drive – Every December Clark Nuber PS partners with Treehouse to provide pajamas to foster kids.
  • Holiday Giving Trees – Each year we work with an organization to adopt several families. We decorate trees representing each family with tags listing wishes from each family member. Our folks then take a tag and fulfill the wish, leaving the gift-wrapped present under the tree.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clark Nuber (Bellevue, WA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Easy, laid back. I felt at ease the whole time, the culture is truly wonderful and you know they care about their employees. I am so glad that I was able to land a job here! the rumors are not true, the Big four is great
