Civil CAD Designer Technician (Intermediate)

Your Opportunity: An opportunity exists for a highly organized and flexible Technician to become part of our dynamic team. Our Water sector, which brings together many of the world's top engineers and scientists, sees water a bit differently-as a single holistic system rather than as unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. We use this perspective to help communities tap into water's potential. Throughout the life cycle of capture, use, reuse, and discharge, our team optimizes every facet of a water system. Whether a project calls for planners, designers, construction managers, or facility operators, we have the right experts to provide creative, yet practical, water solutions. Through our cost-effective strategies, we're helping communities increase their water efficiency and protect their water resources for future generations. Join our team as we create new ways to tap into water's vast potential.

The Water group provides client-focused solutions in planning, design, bidding, and construction administration with treatment plants and linear utility projects. We also provide engineering electrical and instrumentation, mechanical process, equipment, and materials specification. Within our positive team environment, our employees enjoy great career advancement opportunities and the chance to work on a variety of projects including Wastewater Treatment Plant, Water Treatment Plant, water transmission, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, planning, and Buildings development projects.
