    • Knowledge of waterfall and agile methodologies and tools, and experience managing projects in both
    • Ability to identify and provide solutions for improving current practices

      Why Fisher Investments:

      Fisher Investments is a different kind of investment firm. We don't come from Wall Street, nor do we believe we fit in with most of the finance industry, and we're proud of that. We work for a bigger purpose: bettering the investment universe. From unmatched service to innovative perspectives on investing, it's the people that make the Fisher purpose possible. After all, it's our people that enable us to offer the level of service that we do. And we invest in them accordingly, offering exceptional benefits to our full-time employees like:

      • 100% coverage of premiums for health, vision and dental insurance
      • A 50% 401(k) match, up to the IRS maximum
      • 20 days of PTO*, plus 9 paid holidays
      • 8 week paid Primary Caregiver Parental Leave
      • And much, much more

        We also provide a cumulative, continuous learning and development framework customized for every employee. This emphasis on personal and professional growth has yielded an award-winning work environment; we're Great Place to Work Certified, and The Oregonian named us as a 2017 and 2018 Top Workplace.

        But in the end, it's not the perks that keep people here. They stay because they believe in our mission of service-our employees want to make a difference in an industry that can do better.

        * California employees accrue up to 17 days of PTO and 3 days of sick time per year.
