Company Overview:

First and foremost, Zavanna seeks the right person to fit into our company culture. For the right, motivated candidate who is willing to make sacrifices and work outside of their comfort zone, we are willing to help train and develop them beyond the core competencies requested. We take the approach that the right person will be able to learn and achieve anything.

Zavanna is a unique organization with a culture that foregoes the normal implementation of policies and procedures from a human resources standpoint, and instead chooses to treat its employees like adults with respect, expecting that its employees will return that respect.

Zavanna does not believe in the authoritarian top-down structure that exists within many E&P companies, and is currently shifting its company culture to reflect that belief. We desire to work together as a team, with leaders who are chosen because of the example that they set, not because they are nominated by "executive management".

Zavanna employees need to be ready to receive open and honest feedback about themselves, and also to provide feedback in constructive, respectful ways to others. We desire to continue to build a company that does not function or operate in the same manner as most other E&P companies. You may be asked to perform duties which seem below your pay grade, however, the CEO of the company is likely to join you in completing that task.

Zavanna is not looking to build and flip. We desire to structure our company for continued long-term growth, so please do not even apply if your desire is to make a lifetime of wealth in the next 1-3 years. We fully believe that wealth can be generated for every employee no matter their title or position, but this will happen over time, not overnight. We are seeking employees who share this view.

The final quality, which is mandatory in any Zavanna employee, is the ability to grow both personally and professionally over time. We do not seek perfection, far from it. We seek individuals who have a desire to do the often difficult work of stepping out of their comfort zone to further develop not only themselves, but those around them.

Resumes should be sent to Zavanna’s Accounting Manager, Kevin Wright at kwright@zavanna.com.
