Join a growing engineering firm as we find creative ways to help bring great architecture to life.
The Company: Fast + Epp is a 50-person structural engineering firm headquartered in Vancouver, Canada; we work with all materials but are well known for our timber and timber-hybrid projects. We love working on creative and architecturally expressive structures, on every scale from single-family homes to large institutional buildings. We are moving into new markets, and our organization is expanding.
The Position: We are looking for an intermediate to senior-level engineer to be the second employee in our growing New York office.
Your primary role will be as a project manager in all phases of design and construction, handling everything from finite element models to answering RFI’s. You will be the primary contact with clients, fellow design team consultants, and contractors. The projects will cover a wide range in terms of size, complexity, and structural materials, and you’ll be asked to manage multiple projects at once. You’ll also supervise junior engineers and drafting technicians, remotely with head office employees at first, and then in the New York office as our branch grows. Writing articles and giving technical presentations will also be part of this role.
This job has the potential to grow to include general management and business development responsibilities.
Salary and Benefits: The salary range for this position is $70,000 - $80,000, depending on experience and qualifications. We believe in measuring results, not counting hours, which means your schedule is flexible. Other benefits include comprehensive health coverage and a retirement savings plan.
How to Apply: If you’re interested, please email careersATfastepp.com. Do not send us your resume or a cover letter; we will reply with a brief exercise for you to complete and send back to us within 48 hours. (We estimate the exercise should take between 1 and 1-1/2 hours.) Your name and any biographical data will be stripped from your response before we read it.
You must be currently authorized to work lawfully in the United States. We regret we cannot provide sponsorship for employment-based visas at this time.
