Job Description


**Possible Direct Hire Position for the right candidate**

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


We're looking for a Senior Telecommunications Systems Engineer who is excited about working on projects that enable the heart of our client's business. Join us and you’ll have the chance to work on projects including semiconductor manufacturing, data center facilities, and other state of the art manufacturing and research facilities (multiple U.S. remote office locations will be considered). Come be a part of a vibrant, dynamic team that delivers world class designs for well-known clients around the world. You’ll thrive as you provide telecommunications systems design documentation for our client’s advanced facilities which, in turn shape our world.

 This position will provide leadership opportunities within our group of telecom design staff. You will act as a telecom discipline lead working in conjunction with design staff to produce design packages for our client’s complex facilities. You will also have opportunities to mentor those around you as you perform internal design QA’s and seal construction document packages with your PE stamp. Additionally, you will interface directly with our client counterparts as necessary to coordinate the design for these purpose-built facilities. These designs will leverage all your experience in everything from Outside Plant (OSP) to inter / intra-building backbone distribution systems, communication room layouts, rack elevations, wired & wireless device infrastructure, detailing, cable scheduling and more.

 With our business group having all (9) primary disciplines (C,S,A,M,E,P,T,I,L) required for most of our projects under a single Jacobs virtual “roof”, you will find that cross-discipline coordination of all types becomes greatly streamlined. This helps facilitate projects to be issued in some of the most advanced 3D BIM delivery methods being used today. Coupling this advanced delivery with complex domestic and global projects, with team members from all over the world makes every day truly unique.

 Bring your experience, collaboration skills, talent for multi-tasking and extreme organizational skills and we’ll help you pursue and fulfill what drives you – so we can make big impacts on the world, together.
