Established as a unique leader in the emerging stream restoration and stormwater field, SMC (formerly Stormwater Maintenance & Consulting) is seeking an enthusiastic degreed Engineer who has a passion for restoring the Chesapeake Bay.
The position will entail learning and being mentored on the design of challenging restoration projects for non-profit organizations, commercial landowners, and MS-4 municipalities. The position will also include field work doing inspections and sampling. As existing infrastructure specialists with leading edge projects, you will be challenged technically while enjoying a vibrant working environment. Become part of our enthusiastic group of professionals who have a passion for all things stream and stormwater while contributing to the growth of one of the Mid-Atlantic's leading stream restoration and stormwater focused firms.
Based in Hunt Valley, Maryland, your assignments will be located throughout the Baltimore/Washington corridor. You will be assisting the responsible engineer for final design and drawing preparation on unique projects that include repair and remediation of existing stormwater facilities, retrofit of existing facilities to meet current water quality requirements, new facilities that treat existing impervious areas, and other environmental improvement projects, such as stream restoration. All work will be under the supervision and mentoring of our amazing management team and technical mentors.
SMC is a unique organization. As in the case of many other design firms, we have comprehensive in-house capabilities that include engineering, inspection, and surveying. But that is where comparisons to other firms end for engineers who want to experience a real-world perspective that is at the core of the practice of engineering. SMC also provides construction, general contracting, and operations and maintenance services with in-house resources. We routinely do design/build with only in-house resources. This means that your professional judgement and design decisions will be informed by co-workers who, every day, actually build and maintain what you design. No more theories or guessing. We are a 100% digital workplace, so you must be comfortable with producing CAD work product and communicating via computer. You will be mentored and coached by some of the most qualified and experienced people in the stormwater profession.
This position requires:
- A degree in civil or agricultural/biological engineering or equivalent experience.
- Prefer successful passing of the Engineer-in-Training (EIT) exam.
- Good communication skills (respectful, friendly, outgoing when needed, courteous, etc)
- Capability to work in both office and field environments
- Prefer knowledge and/or interest in stream restoration and/or stormwater management including TR-55, TR-20, HEC-RAS, etc.
- Experience in AutoCAD and Civil 3D. We are a design/draft culture, so CAD is a must.
