City of Vancouver

The City of Vancouver looks for people who are passionate about service and want to support the City’s ambition to become a more exceptional community. We value employees who are adaptable, innovative and collaborative and hold themselves to the highest standard of excellence. Here, talented people from diverse backgrounds and expertise come together to create positive solutions and outcomes for the community we serve. We value diversity in every form. From engineers and police officers, to urban planners and swim instructors, and all races, gender identities, ethnicities and belief systems. This is what makes Vancouver an exceptional place to work and grow.


Vancouver, Washington, is a beautiful city that sits on the north bank of the Columbia River directly across from Portland, Oregon. The Pacific Coast is less than 90 miles to the west. The Cascade Mountain Range rises on the east. Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and Mt. Hood are less than two hours away. The spectacular Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area lies 30 minutes to the east. Vancouver combines the excitement of a major metropolitan area with small-town charm and abundant recreational opportunities.
