Full Time - Experienced
4 Year Degree
Have you dreamed about designing a bridge? What about engineering our roadways? Do you want to join a company who is passionate about our work, our clients, and our employees?
Then OBEC is the company for you!
We are looking for dynamic individuals to join both our Structural/Bridge Division as well as our Roadway Division. Check out our job postings on www.obec.com!
As licensed Professional Engineer with at least four years of experience, you’ll apply your understanding of civil/structural engineering fundamentals to help project teams solve unique technical problems and perform their best.
We will push you to hone not only your engineering skills, but also your ability to perform as part of a dynamic team that works with several clients on numerous projects. Working alongside technical staff and other engineers, you will report directly to a more senior engineer. You will perform design tasks with little or no guidance, so you must exercise strong engineering judgment with broad guidance from senior staff. You’ll also quickly learn and apply technical mathematical concepts and engineering design skills, helping others learn them as well.
When you get to work each day, you’ll take on tasks related to bridge/structure and/or roadway design, 3-dimensional modeling, quantity calculations, alternatives analysis, as well as independent design checks, construction support assignments, and drafting. You may even serve as engineer-of-record on smaller design projects. You will write technical specifications, reports, and other correspondence to a variety of audiences. Your understanding of design codes as well as project budgets and schedules will help you effectively collaborate within multi-disciplinary teams as well as with clients, contractors, suppliers, and teaming partners.
At OBEC, mentoring is a two-way street. You can rely on senior team members to be proactive mentors in helping you with your career goals and advising you on the work you do – giving you achievable assignments that push you to excel. Senior team members will rely on you to do impeccable, timely, and detailed work and to help think of ways to do things differently. Your flexibility to take on a range of assignments will mean that you’ll be comfortable with not only design and CAD software but also the range of critical project administration duties that includes attending meetings, writing correspondence, and compiling reports.
It takes a team to move a project from concept to final plans, specifications, and engineering estimates. In this role, you’ll take on increasingly complex parts of that process as you build the skills and experience you need to advance your career.
