Position: Intermediate Geological or Geotechnical Engineer
Closing Date April 27th, 2018

Madrone Environmental Services Ltd. is a multi-disciplinary consulting firm focusing on the environmental aspects of land management. Our services range from developing overall plans for managing the environmental effects of clients’ projects, to providing specific scientific expertise in agrology, archaeology, ecology, fisheries, geoscience, GIS, hydrology, geotechnical engineering, and wildlife. We have clients in every land and resource sector including forestry, mining, transportation, energy, agriculture, and land development.

We are seeking an experienced geological or geotechnical engineer (P.Eng.) for a position in our Abbotsford office. The position will involve primarily geo-hazard assessments in forestry and municipal contexts, as well as foundation engineering assessments and design of erosion protection measures. You may also be involved in site contamination assessments, and hydrologic assessments.

At minimum applicants will hold a bachelor’s degree in geotechnical or geological engineering, 4 to 7 years related post-graduate experience, and registered as a professional engineer (P.Eng.) in BC. Candidates need to be flexible regarding learning new skills related to geoscience, erosion and sediment control, and forest engineering. This position will involve autonomous management of small-scale projects, with minimal oversight.

The successful candidate will have experience in site investigations and geotechnical analysis (for either foundations or slope stability). Previous experience in design of geotechnical solutions is preferred. Knowledge of geomorphological processes is important and a background in hydrology and hydrogeology would be beneficial. Physical fitness is critical as the work frequently entails relatively arduous field traverses in remote locations. It also entails a substantial component of report writing, so the ability to communicate clearly and effectively is also critical.

Madrone offers a flexible, intellectually stimulating work environment. Professional development is strongly supported through training and leadership opportunities, as well as a high level of responsibility and independence with project management and client communications. We encourage our employees to continually improve job satisfaction through seeking out opportunities to expand our business into areas in which they are interested.

Preference will be given to candidates living in the central or eastern Fraser Valley, or who are willing to relocate.
