  • Preparation of quantity and cost estimates.
  • Analyze maps, reports, drawings, as-builts and test results for design projects.
  • Provide project- specific technical information to the Project Manager and team members for incorporation into the project specifications
  • Limited field observation on project sites before, during, and after construction.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering.
  • 3-6 years of civil engineering experience in land development or rail design
  • Experience using Microstation or Civil 3D.
  • Must be able to work both independently and in a team setting. Must also have the ability to work on fast-paced, dynamic projects
  • Ability to travel on a limited basis, up to 25% of the time at intervals during a project duration.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • EIT or PE Registration


  • Medical, Dental, Vision, and Life Insurance
