Innovyze – Why Work With Us?

Innovyze empowers water professionals around the world to create, manage, and maintain water services. We are the global leader in water infrastructure data analytics software, providing enduring support for customer success.

Working at Innovyze

Our world-leading software helps people make the right decisions about their water infrastructure, every day, all around the globe. Join us to develop and build software, support or train our customers, sell, or support Innovyze in another way. We need really talented people, and we’ll support you in achieving your career goals.

We combine:

  • Expertise in water modeling, engineering, and management
  • Deep understanding of our customers’ needs
  • Neat, powerful, and creative application development

…to make world-leading software that our customers depend on.

Our customers include municipalities, utilities, public works, universities, governmental agencies, research organizations, and consulting engineering firms, worldwide.

Our employees are clever, dedicated and open to the best new ideas, and many of them have advanced degrees in environmental engineering and related fields.

You’ll find a warm, supportive atmosphere where we aim to nurture talent and make the most of each person’s skills and aptitudes.

We are a passionate team. We care about our customers, our employees, the software products we build, and the communities we serve.

We’re looking for people who are driven to make water work better for our customers and the communities they serve all around the world.

Most employees work in our larger offices in the US (Portland, OR, Broomfield, CO, and Monrovia, CA), Australia (Brisbane and Tweed Heads) and UK (Wallingford and Newbury). We have some smaller offices and home-based employees too.


Sales and Engineering

We have a history of creating cutting-edge water software for more than 40 years. XP Solutions was founded in 1974, to improve the use and understanding of water resources. Since then there have been several mergers with other companies, most recently to form the current Innovyze in 2017.

Our heritage stretches back even further than that. In 1947 the UK Government set up the Hydraulics Research Station in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, to investigate flooding, rivers, harbours and coastal erosion. It's now known as HR Wallingford. Wallingford Software was spun off in 1987.

MWH Soft began life in 1996 to focus on water supply. It acquired Wallingford Software in 2009 and changed its name to Innovyze in 2011.

The 2017 merger brought two market leaders together. We can now help our customers address the broadest range of challenges that face them across water supply; storm, sewer and floodwater; design for drainage; managing vast inventories of assets from pumps to entire pipe networks; and making good decisions based on data and analytics.

Innovyze has a lovely mix of small and large company characteristics. We're small enough to know the names of most of our colleagues, and large enough to have big-company benefits.

There's lots of variety – some teams are energetic and loud, others are quieter and more formal – but a consistent theme is courtesy and respect for one another, and a focus on doing the best for our customers.

We have an incredibly international team who bring different backgrounds, languages, cultures and experiences into our offices. We are open and honest, and trust each other.

Our internal values are:

  • Customer Centric
  • Trustworthy
  • Innovative
  • Exceptional

We have a quarterly awards scheme aligned to these values.

    Great history of innovation and cutting edge tech for the water industry. Dedicated teammates and attentive executive management. Opportunity to interact with customers around the world - really helping the global water industry meet current challenges. New technology for smart utility management (cloud platform) is exciting - going beyond the historical modeling/designing focus of the company. It's great to be in a company that is moving forward!


    Challenging to work across so many timezones - teams are often made up of internationally located people so someone is often working outside of normal hours. Changing from an engineering software company to an enterprise level technology company has been challenging - expectations and work load have increased. Mergers/acquisitions make culture hard to maintain - it's constant work to keep on target with our mission.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that everyone is working really hard to deliver. Your support and positive energy is really needed - keep in touch daily!

    Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edgewood, NM
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Innovyze (Edgewood, NM) in May 2015.


    Kind of a non standard interview for me. I have known members in management most of my career. When the time came to need a new position due to an unexpected layoff due to the economy, management staff suggested I apply for this position. Having known several coworkers who worked here, the interview process was mostly working through the details of what my role and salary/benefits would be.
