Civil Design Engineer

Civil Design Engineer

Job Description

Work with us, not for us. Let’s partner together to create our future built environment!

You will work within a fun, dynamic, and diverse team and will have the opportunity to engage on projects from the beginning planning stages through construction documents, and support clients during design and construction. Project types vary from site development to utility infrastructure to regional stormwater facilities in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

The option for a hybrid work from home/office environment provides the best of both worlds. Our welcoming and newly renovated office offers collaboration space where you can brainstorm with your team and mentors, an individual workspace where you can dive deep into your design, and large kitchens where you can escape for some lively lunchtime conversation. Two years in a pandemic taught us the value of a flexible work environment and the importance of our time together. We will work with you to establish a home/office balance that addresses your individual scheduling needs. Use your KPFF subsidized ORCA pass to have light rail deliver you directly to our building, or for a sustainable Metro bus commute to our downtown office. To incorporate some exercise into your commute, join the many cyclists in our office and take advantage of bicycle storage and lockers on each floor.

In your resume and/or cover letter please indicate how and where you obtained the qualifications we have outlined below. We look forward to getting to know you!
