Close Date: 01/31/2019

Job description
If you’re a certified Engineer in Training with a year or more of professional experience and looking to advance your career, then OBEC is a good fit for you. Join our team in either Eugene, Medford or Lake Oswego to put yourself among a group of passionate and skilled colleagues as you work toward earning your PE stamp.
This position is ideal for an early career engineering professional with an Engineering in Training certification and a strong understanding of roadway, stormwater, and hydraulics fundamentals.
Ideally you will have one year or more of experience as a junior designer and a high aptitude for working effectively with others. Your Intermediate level of proficiency with roadway design programs such as Civil 3D, InRoads and other related software will allow you to accurately complete engineering calculations with limited oversight. Your technical abilities need to be rounded out by strong communication and organization skills as well as an intermediate level proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite programs (Outlook, Word, Excel).
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 under the supervision of a licensed Civil Engineer, you will report directly to a more senior staff member. You will exercise strong engineering judgment and 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 roadway design, 3-dimensional modeling, quantity calculations, route layout, alternatives analysis, as well as independent design checks, construction support, and drafting. 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.
