    10-20% of the time you will be performing data site visits, site recon/assessment & construction oversight - occasional travel is required!
    We would love to talk to you if you have any of the following:

    • Advanced knowledge of basic civil site design fundamentals.

    • Strong written and oral communication skills. Ability to not only produce accurate construction documents, but also explain to a variety of audiences with varying technical understanding why particular design approaches were chosen

      What will make you stand out?

      • PE License in the states of Tennessee and Georgia.

      • Exposure to surveying techniques, stream natural channel design, and wetland restoration design.

      • Experience preparing floodplain analyses, hydraulic and hydrology (H/H) investigation, groundwater hydrology, as well as stream and wetland biological functionality
