Posted Date 8/04/2017


As a multidisciplinary engineering firm, SME provides comprehensive planning, design and construction oversight services for residential, commercial, industrial, and governmental clients.  The Civil Engineer participates in a diverse and dynamic portfolio of projects varying in size from residential development, commercial, and medical buildings, to large industrial complexes.  Many of our projects involve innovative designs for environmentally sensitive areas.

The Civil Engineer at SME is responsible for range of duties, including site planning, civil engineering and design, bid and construction services, permitting, document preparation, and public presentations.  Because there is no “typical” project at SME, the Civil Engineer has an exceptional opportunity to work on a wide variety of assignments for buildings, roadways, stormwater systems, solid waste facilities, dams, solar power arrays, and water and sewerage systems.

The ideal candidate will possess a high level of organizational skills that are well suited to project management to keep tasks on schedule and on budget.  Experience in creating realistic delivery schedules and accurate budgeting are key assets.  This individual is an integral team member and problem solver who is adept at developing practical, cost-effective solutions that serve our clients well.

Because the Civil Engineer works closely with SME’s multidisciplinary staff and frequently interacts directly with clients, agencies, and members of the general public, strong interpersonal and communications skills will also be important.  At SME, we pride ourselves on building and maintaining very positive long-term relationships with all parties with whom we interact.


  • B.S. degree in Civil Engineering, with 5 to 10 years of experience,
  • Professional Engineer’s license,
  • Solid civil engineering design experience, including site development, grading plans, stormwater analysis and design, roadway design, utility analysis and design, code research, drafting of technical reports and specifications,
