Why Work for UrsaNav?

What is Bear Culture?

Bears in the wild have good vision and a keen sense of smell. UrsaNav “bears” (employees) smell the success earned from hard work and certainly have a vision for the future. Though the company is growing rapidly, it maintains a small-business atmosphere of mutual respect and support among employees at all levels. When the company was started in 2004, the founders vowed to never sacrifice culture for growth and they haven’t yet. Employees are taken care of and they in turn take care of and support their clients and the community.


UrsaNav strives to empower employees to do the right things right.

For three years, UrsaNav has been ranked on Inside Business magazine’s list of the “Top 25 Places to Work” in Hampton Roads. Additionally, Inc. magazine ranked us as the 8th fastest-growing Engineering Company and the 807th fastest growing privately held company in 2009 for its Inc. 500/5000 list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in America. In 2010, we made it to the same list again with a ranking at #1253. Additionally, the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce has identified UrsaNav as one of the “Top Ten Businesses to Watch”. These and other endorsements illustrate that this is a place where employees are inspired by their jobs and happy to devote their time and expertise to further the company’s mission—an equation for success.
