Stormwater facilities, culverts, fluvial processes, erosion control…are you knowledgeable of these conditions in northwest Oregon? We are recruiting for a hydraulic engineer to join our innovative Region 1 Geo/Hydro/Hazmat Unit! In this role, you will work closely with roadway designers, environmental staff and our team to develop designs for the conveyance and treatment of storm water runoff and erosion control.
The goal of this recruitment is to fill this position at a professional engineer 1 level. However, we encourage candidates who meet the minimum qualifications for an associate in engineering 2 ($4,272.00 - $6,309.00 monthly) to apply, as we may consider under-filling the position until the selected candidate acquires a professional engineer's license. Under-filling will not exceed six months.
We invite members of all diverse communities to join our workforce as we endeavor to best serve Oregonians from every background. ODOT values diversity and inclusion because they are good for Oregon. We believe that by welcoming differences, encouraging new ideas and views, listening to and learning from each other, and providing opportunities for professional enrichment we are better able to serve those around us. We thank you for considering this employment opportunity.
