Careers in Operations

Our three shipyards and our Marine division have been centres of high-quality transport, shipbuilding, and repair for decades—and now we are entering a 30-year period of even higher production and growth. We are looking for skilled people to join our Operations teams in Vancouver and Victoria, as well as our Marine and Ferry division outports around the southern West Coast.

Seaspan Shipyards, Seaspan Marine and Seaspan Ferries

At Vancouver Shipyards, Vancouver Drydock and Victoria Shipyards, you’ll find a fast-paced and project-oriented environment that is focused on efficiency, safety, and quality.

Our staff at these ports and outports enjoy a busy, high-energy work environment and our same commitment to safety, training, and infrastructure.
