    How We Hire
    _____

    We admit it, we’re selective about the Team Members we invite to join Dynamic Risk.

    Step 1: First Contact: You’ve reached out to us in response to an opening, or maybe you’ve heard about the work we do or the culture we’ve created. We might have gone looking for you or maybe you’ve been referred to us. However you land at our front door, we’re happy you are here.

    Step 2: Initial Review: We conduct a thorough review of your qualifications and experience to assess fit to our opportunities. For some, this means they proceed to Step 3, for others, we add them to our Talent Community and regularly review them against our hiring needs.

    Step 3: Getting to Know You: What are you looking for? What experience have you gained? What do you know about Dynamic Risk? These are a few questions we ask in our first screening interview as you share your story and your career aspirations.

    Step 4: Getting into the Details: This is often your first introduction to our hiring team. Now that we know a bit more about you, in this step we dig into your industry and discipline knowledge and technical skills. This touch point helps us determine if you meet the requirements of the role. For our junior roles, we make our decision at this stage.

    Step 5: Show us What you’ve Got: For some of our intermediate and all of our senior roles we ask you to prepare a short presentation for us. This helps us understand how you handle yourself when all eyes are on you.

    Step 6: The Offer: We begin with the end in mind with the presentation of a Term Sheet. This gives us a chance to make sure we are aligned on the big items – salary, start date, and responsibilities. We then speak with your references, conduct background screening and when we have the all clear, you are presented with employment documents.

    Step 7: On Boarding: A bespoke on-boarding plan is created for you. In addition to introducing you to the Company and how we do things, during the first month, we schedule touch points for you with key individuals and departments you’ll work most closely with.

    Amal Elsisi – Senior Integrity Engineer

    Amal Elsisi - Talent Spotlight

     

    Introduce yourself and tell us about your career path at Dynamic Risk 

    My name is Amal Elsisi, and I am a Senior Integrity Engineer at Dynamic Risk. I moved to Canada from Egypt in 2011.  

    I joined Dynamic Risk in 2013 as a GIS Analyst and my role involved creating maps for our field staff. Within six months, I received my P.Eng. designation from APEGA and was promoted to Integrity Engineer.  

    I worked in Dynamic Risk’s upstream division running a hydraulic simulation software called “GASMOD”, which considers the heat transfer between the gas in the pipeline and the surrounding medium to check the capabilities of existing pipelines. Then I moved to the Integrity Consultant team, where I gained knowledge and experience in all types of In-line Inspection (ILI). Earlier this year I got promoted to Senior Integrity Engineer. I learn something new every month and I also work on various projects that help me expand my knowledge and expertise. I enjoy sharing what I know with others.  

     

    What value do our clients gain from your contribution? 

    Each client has criteria through which they measure pipeline integrity. Those standards are highly dependent on where the pipeline is located. Our clients must also abide by laws in Canada and the United States, and I assist them in ensuring they comply with industry regulations. In addition, I apply and use IRAS ILIAnalyst as much as possible. My team and I utilize ILIAnalyst to perform inline inspection projects that include ILI data, growth rates, algorithm creation, and identifying pipeline sections requiring excavation and inspection. With our software’s visual display, we can see what is inside and outside pipelines. For clients that intend to return their pipelines to service, I provide recommendations, problem-solving, and analytical analysis regarding dig plans to maintain pipe safety and avoid environmental harm.  

     

    What is the best career advice you’ve ever been given? 

    In my first job after graduating from university in Egypt, my manager advised me to work as hard as possible, regardless of my compensation. He told me the money would come later as long as I maintained consistency and persistence in my everyday tasks. He also advised me to spread my knowledge and share my experience with others. Those words resonated with me at the time, and I continue applying them throughout my career and everyday life. 

     

    Which project are you most proud of and why? 

    I am proud of every project I have been involved in. For example, a client once recruited the upstream team that I was part of to create a connectivity diagram for thousands of pipelines to run a simulation model. We were employing a manual approach that used to be time-consuming, so I found a tool that helped us streamline our work. On another project, I found a calculation error in a macro calculator used for many years by a client which makes them value our quality-checking procedures. I am aware that my efforts are appreciated by the project managers with whom I work. Now I am involved in more projects and have more responsibilities. For instance, I recently demonstrated to a client how ILIAnalyst would provide the required information. This was a very rewarding experience, and the direct interaction with the client gave me a confidence boost in my expertise and my position within the company.  

     

    How do you help our clients innovate? 

    Our pipeline risk and integrity management software help our clients innovate. For example, when we assess any ILI to evaluate pipelines, all the required information comes from ILIAnalyst, which saves time. Our software also assists me in identifying pipeline features that require immediate or scheduled repair. When I find these, I can let our clients know, even if it is before a deadline or a report submission date. I quality-check my work by creating macros I learned as part of my computer science training.   

     

    What is something that others may not know about you? 

    I changed my career many times after graduating as an engineer. I graduated as a civil engineer in Egypt, and two years later, I became a database administrator and learned Geographic Information System (GIS) software and modules. From there, I moved to Saudi Arabia, where I taught programming languages at a university. When I moved to Canada, I began working in the energy industry. I am a successful middle eastern Muslim woman with a family and a career, and I want to show others that it is possible. I have overcome many obstacles, learned new skills and I find very rewarding to pass on my knowledge to others.
