  • Communicating with our team and clients
  • Participation and involvement in local and national professional associations (i.e. ACI, CRMCA, ICRI, ASTM, AASHTO)
  • Billing

The offered position will likely be Staff level but will depend on experience and ability.  Pay will be based on experience and assigned duties.  The ideal applicant will have (or soon have) a valid, Colorado professional license, a B.S. in civil engineering and about one to 5 years of experience with materials engineering and laboratory testing.  In addition to strong engineering skills, this individual must possess an understanding of construction methods.  The drive and ability to provide client-focused service is required.  Design and construction experience with concrete, aggregates, asphalt and structures is desirable, especially local experience.  Good writing and communication skills are essential.  Must be able to occasionally lift up to 50 lbs. 

Materials Staff Engineers are paid an annual salary between $45,000.00 and $80,000.00 plus discretionary bonuses.  Our full time employees enjoy paid vacation and paid sick time as well as a generous benefits package which includes medical, life and long term disability insurances.  Voluntary benefits options include dental, vision, critical illness, accident, supplemental life, short term disability, a flexible spending account and a health savings account.  Retirement benefits include a 401K and profit sharing plan.
