Testimonial

I PLAY A PART IN BUILDING A BRIGHT FUTURE THAT CAN WEATHER ANY STORM.

Many times, the safety of entire communities is influenced by our work. On one project in Florida, I worked with a client to make sure a critical 911 communications facility would be operable during and after a Category 5 hurricane. Advising them on things like how to protect vital generator systems and helping them make costeffective design decisions, I had a hand in building something truly substantial. In the end, our client was happy to have a partner that understood and worked with them to meet their unique needs.

  • Conduct evaluations which include, but are not limited to, site water supplies, dust hazards, chemical storage, and rack storage arrangements for client products
  • Ensure that FM Global Engineering Standards are followed and, as necessary communicate the appropriate recommendations and/or engineering solutions to clients
  • Working from a home office and travel to clients' facilities daily (overnight travel is expected approximately 30% of the time). Travel to Natural Catastrophe sites will be required as needed.

Qualifications

Successful Consultant Engineer candidates have the following qualifications:

  • Minimum of a bachelor’s degree in engineering (various specialties considered)
  • 3-5 years of engineering experience is a plus.
  • Strong verbal and written English communications skills
  • Good analytical, organizational, problem solving, and interpersonal skills
  • Efficient time management ability with minimal supervision
  • Solid technical aptitude including diverse knowledge of engineering principles
  • Valid driver’s license
  • Physical ability to climb ladders, lift >25 lbs., balance, and heights
  • Proficient in MS Office products
