Overview: People, Passion, and Principles

Our people are the source of Swift Energy's success as one of the nation's top-60 oil and gas companies. We seek new employees—from recent college graduates to industry veterans—who share our passion for contributing to the nation's energy security while maintaining high principles.

Reasons to Join Our Team

People. Our focus is on individuals. We recognize that our company is at its best only when we enable our employees to be at their best. This mindset creates a work environment in which we value diversity, we appreciate fresh perspectives, we seriously consider new ideas, and we respect each person's unique talents and personality. If you join our team, our goal will be to help you reach your personal best within the framework of your unique attributes.

Passion. We are a learning and teaching organization. We help employees pursue their career passions by offering world-class training, challenging work projects, and cutting-edge tools and technology. Opportunities for professional development at Swift Energy include cross-training and mentoring from some of the industry's finest, formal education at established institutions, and opportunities for self-directed efforts to upgrade skills and knowledge.

Principles. We are values-based. Our company is centered on deeply ingrained principles built up over our history, creating a positive work environment of mutual respect. These principles include continuous improvement, good stewardship, top-tier performance, enthusiasm for our work, personal integrity, the building of trust, and effective teamwork. We believe that our values are one of the main reasons we've outlived over 90% of our competitors since the late 1980s. According to the Oil and Gas Journal’s annual surveys, out of more than 400 public oil and gas companies listed in the 1980s, less than 10% are still in business today in their original form.
