As a Structural Engineering Professional, you will be an integral member of the design team, counted on to perform a significant portion of Structural analysis and design for our projects. You will need strong communication and interpersonal skills as you work closely with your Structural Lead, other Structural Engineers and Designers, and other disciplines. As part of this team, you will help develop design concepts, complete the analysis and design, and work with our Designers to get the structural requirements communicated on paper and in the model.
It is expected that you have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of Structural Engineering, knowledge of multiple subject areas, experience with US building codes including seismic provisions, understand how Structural design integrates with and impacts other disciplines, and are building understanding of business trends and industry issues and challenges.
This position may require you to serve as a Lead Structural Engineer for medium sized projects, or as a Sub-Lead for larger projects. You will be given as much responsibility as you are willing to take, and your opportunities for career growth will be limited only by your own motivation, capabilities, and attitude.
Duties and Responsibilities
  • With little or no supervision, competently perform all conventional aspects of Structural Engineering analysis and design:
  • Plan and conduct work requiring judgement in the independent evaluation, selection, and adaptation of engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria
  • Exercise sound engineering judgement and problem-solving skills, not hesitating to reach out to others for guidance or confirmation when questions arise
  • Possess strong knowledge of principles and practices of lateral analysis and design (wind and seismic), including ability to apply required provisions of the building code
  • Exhibit a high level of attention to detail and quality control:
  • Committed to checking your own work, reaching out to peers and seniors for guidance when questions arise
  • Perform calculation checking of other engineers' work
  • Take responsibility for managing workload, make and keep commitments, and take full ownership of assigned work:
  • Take complete ownership of your portion of the structural scope, reliably working to meet schedule, budget, and quality requirements
  • You may be given tasks with ill-defined conditions of satisfaction; in which case you will be expected to take the initiative to determine what is needed to meet the project and client needs
  • Clearly define your own scope and forecast level of effort needed to complete that scope
  • Be ready to identify scope change and escalate it to your Structural Lead or Project Manager
  • Recognize when help is needed, reaching out to peers and senior engineers for guidance
  • Work in a timely, accurate, and cost-effective manner with strong attention to detail
Developing leadership skills:
  • Provide technical guidance, coaching, and/or mentorship to designers/drafters and less experienced engineers
  • Be proactive in advancing workflows, systems, and tools within the structural discipline; embrace emerging technologies
Working Conditions and Physical Requirements
  • Able to perform field walks unless mobility challenged; though not common, this may include climbing ladders, crawling under raised access floors, or walking/standing for extended periods of time
  • This position is considered project site/hybrid and may require you to work in the local office, at a project site, or from your home (within approximately 50 miles of site)
  • You may be asked to support work for/in other offices or client sites (possibly including Temporary Duty Assignments)
  • Employee to provide internet service as required at home to effectively meet project performance requirements
