This is a key position in our office and requires particular attention to detail, a thorough understanding of engineering design principles, and the ability to effectively work within a team and independently. Employees that exhibit exception skill, ability to interact directly with clients, and work ethic at Water Works Engineers can rapidly rise into Project Management and potentially Ownership with no limits on what you can achieve.

What we offer:
- We have a relaxed culture. No dress code (within reason and if not meeting with a client). People can speak openly and frankly and we have a very flat organizational feel where you can just walk into one of the original owner’s office and ask questions, etc. Not a corporate feel at all. We are still only 100 people company wide. Roseville office has 10 employees right now.
- Our standard is “get the work done, and do it well”, not “work 8-5”. We are flexible on work schedule.
- We are open to hybrid work. We have several employees that work 1 or more days a week from home.
- We have awesome benefits. Our healthcare has top notch plans with essentially little-to-no employee contribution.
- As a “small company”, we do a huge range of types of work within civil engineering. Water treatment, wastewater treatment, water distribution, sewer, design, planning, modeling, and even construction inspection. If someone is pigeon-holed at a larger company, that won’t happen here. We do too many things and have a small enough team for that to happen. We also do cutting edge stuff that larger companies in the area do, and we regularly beat those companies out on projects because of our reputation as being nimble, responsive, creative-thinking, more cost efficient, and risk-taking.
- Compensation approach is pretty significantly different than most of the larger firms:
- Bonus Program: we have moved from an end-of-year approach to up front monthly additional bonus payments, which are adjustable based on performance, so you are not waiting until Christmas to get it in a larger lump sum
- Although salaried, we pay overtime. This is in addition to bonus. So if you work 45 hours in a week, you get 5 hours of either PTO added to your bank, or you can pay it out every couple of months. If you get stuck working a 60 hour week, you will be immediately compensated for that.
- A superstar can quickly rise into project management and possibly ownership. Some of our leaders that have joined the firm 7-10+ years ago have became an owners. The standard is self-sufficiency. If you can win work, and profitably execute work under your own supervision without the support of another owner, you can become one. Its almost like starting your own business without starting completely from scratch.
