Job Description

HKA Enterprises is unable to support C2C. 3rd party submissions and C2C requests will not be considered for any positions.

HKA is working on behalf of Jacobs and this role is to support Jacobs’ work through HKA.

Based out of one of our US offices (preferred location Reston, VA or WDC area), you’ll have the opportunity to work on exciting projects nationwide, participating in a variety of office and field tasks related to planning, evaluating, designing, and implementing the geotechnical aspects of environmental remedies. You’ll apply your technical experience with the support of our global geotechnical technology team. Your analytical skills will be called upon as you evaluate site conditions, determine geotechnical design data needs, assess remedial alternatives, perform engineering calculations, and develop designs. You’ll use your technical writing skills to prepare work plans, reports, and design documents, including design specifications. You’ll learn from other experienced staff who are ready to mentor you, and you’ll pass your knowledge on to others. As a junior/mid-level Engineer, you’ll be directed by Design Managers and discipline leads, but you will be called on to take ownership of assigned tasks. You’ll be juggling multiple tasks, so we’ll rely on you to prioritize effectively, keeping the big picture in mind. You may spend up to 25% to 50% of your time in the field supporting or overseeing the gathering of geotechnical and other design data. Safety will be your priority, as you contribute to “incident free” operations and maintain the highest standards of Health & Safety in everything you do.
