Entry Level Civil EIT Opportunity in Coos Bay

SHN is seeking an Entry Level Civil Engineer-in-Training for our Coos Bay, Oregon regional office.  Our projects’ goals are many, such as improving water quality (an example is our work on the new wastewater treatment plant in Coos Bay), reducing seismic risks and improving aesthetic qualities of our built environment (such as under-grounding overhead utilities in Lincoln City), and assisting in economic development and recovery of our small rural communities (numerous projects in the energy and commercial development sectors). SHN values education and training, and supports staff as they work towards licensing and other certifications. 

Professional Licensed Surveyor Opportunity

SHN is actively searching for a mid/senior level surveyor, preferably holding PLS certification in California.  If you have reached our website through the professional land surveyor associations of California, Oregon, or Nevada, thanks for reading the discussion board thread, and you may want to skip to the job advertisement or go straight to the job description

If you’re interested based on our Facebook or other social media posts, here is some additional information.  Our surveying group is lead by Tom Herman, PLS, who is our Principal Surveyor and also the Regional Manager of our Willits office.  Three others who hold PLS certifications are based in Willits and Redding.  Walter White, PLS, is our senior surveyor based in our Coos Bay, OR office.  Tom and Walter are supported by a team of experienced survey technicians.  This PLS opportunity is based in our Eureka office.

Recruitment success but not done yet!

We are pleased to welcome six (6!) professionals to SHN.  Competition for outstanding people is keen, with the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting an 8% increase in civil engineering employment to 2024.  Attracting experienced and enthusiastic people in turn attracts more of the same, and SHN is all the better for it.  We are still accepting applications for civil engineers, a surveyor, and a survey technician.  Our most recent staff additions are:  Dale Roper, PE, PLS (Redding), Justin Wilson, PE (Coos Bay), Jennifer Figueroa-Golder (Arcata), Roger Klakken (Eureka), Richard Poole, EIT (Coos Bay), and Gary Slawson (Coos Bay).  Zack Carter will be completing his intership with us, and returning to Oregon State University in September.  To read short bios, please "read more".

US EPA Excellence in Site Reuse Award

The Wiyot Tribe has been selected as the first recipient of the US EPA’s Region 9 Excellence in Site Reuse Award, for the environmental cleanup of the Tuluwat Village, and resumption of the World Renewal Ceremony.   The Tribe contacted Mike Foget, Principal of Civil Engineering and the cleanup’s project manager, to acknowledge SHN’s role in making “this project a reality and success.”  The Tribe also asked if Mike could be interviewed, to share insights and lessons learned that could assist other Brownfield projects.  This project also won the American Council of Engineering Companies Engineering Excellence Award in 2013. 

Be part of our team!

SHN is actively recruiting mid/senior level civil engineers specializing in water, wastewater, public works, and environmental services; a professional licensed surveyor, and a survey technician.  We offer the advantages of working at a small company (you’ll “wear lots of hats”), but we are large enough to support research and application of new technologies such as horizontal directional drilling, cast in place pipe, ElectroScan™ leak detection, and multispectral analyses via unmanned aerial vehicles.  Our current planning projects include developing university student housing, analyzing impacts and creating mitigations for dam removals, and monitoring mitigation projects relating to highway construction.  The work we do benefits our communities and environment, which is a primary motivator for us!  The work is also generally demanding and often on a tight deadline so we work in teams that foster camaraderie, friendships, respect, and leadership.  It’s not for everyone, but it might be for you!  Check out our Currently Open Positions page for detailed job descriptions.
