In this role you will design, bid and manage projects from start to finish and have the opportunity to be well-rounded in all aspects of engineering and construction management. A specialty or interest in a specific branch of Civil Engineering with a high degree of skill in that branch is desired. As an engineer in this group, you will be encouraged and supported to achieve department, professional and personal goals. As an engineer in this department, you may be climbing on a spillway gate on a dam inspecting welds one day, and designing a substation structure or water system another. If you are highly developed in one or two engineering specialties (hydrology/hydraulics, structural, heavy civil, fisheries engineering, geotechnical), you are encouraged to apply. This office takes a systems approach to solving project problems, including supplementing design needs with outside consultants to deliver projects in an efficient manner. Curiosity, and the desire to learn and grow as employees is essential, and this office provides the variety of work and settings to do so. The work diversity as an owner's engineer at Tacoma Power is exciting!
