Career Growth and Development

Life at General Fusion – Why Work with Us?

At General Fusion, we encourage everyone to take ownership of their career growth and development in collaboration with their leader. A foundational component of employee career development is our performance management process which includes establishing individual goals related to development across technical, leadership, and business focus areas. Employees can explore and build a development plan through regular performance and development discussions that enable their career growth. In addition, we support our team members in reaching their full potential through several programs including:

  • Foundational training developing competencies in Effective Communication, Psychological Safety, Effective Leadership and Influence, Performance Management, and more!
  • Professional development support for engineers-in-training (EIT), professional engineers (P.Eng.), and other relevant certifications.
  • Lunch and Learn presentations facilitated by members of our team or external experts on diverse subjects, such as plasma physics, intellectual property, and project management.

Meet the Team

The GF Way!


Driving strategic innovation is critical to our success. Participating in innovation sessions such as Hackathons allows our teams to work collaboratively and provide solutions to real-world technical problems. These events provide our people the opportunity to engage in rapid and collaborative engineering in a focused and time-bound manner.   Presenting project ideas to the entire organization provides the forum to ensure all ideas are heard and promotes collaboration across all areas of the organization.

Work hard, play hard! 

Changing the world takes hard work and dedication. Sometimes it’s nice to break away and have some good old-fashioned fun! Our employee events include our winter holiday party, family open house, the Vancouver Sun Run, and Bike to Work Week.

Partnering in our communities and helping to build the next generation in STEM

We offer post-secondary internships and co-op opportunities in partnership with several universities. In 2022, we were proud to be recognized as a top co-op employer by the University of British Columbia’s Science Co-op Program.
