Job Description:

Borrego is seeking a Civil Engineer II to join our team in Lowell, MA. We offer a hybrid work environment, allowing you to work remotely 2-3 days a week and from the office 2-3 days a week. The Civil Engineer II will work with a team of engineers, project developers, project managers, and engineering consultants to assist in reviewing, designing, and permitting community and utility-scale renewable energy projects (solar PV, energy storage, wind) ranging in size from 1MW to 25MW+.  

At Borrego, we don’t accept the status quo. We are driven by a culture of teamwork, fearless thinking, safety, and adaptability as we pursue our mission to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy.

After 40 years in business, Borrego is a trusted name in the solar industry and well-known for our strong employee culture. We combine the stability and wisdom gained by decades in business with an entrepreneurial spirit. Our employees are driven and animated by the Borrego System of Excellence, an operating framework detailing our mission, vision, strategy, and cultural principles and working systems.
