Mid-Level Civil Engineer - Federal Projects

Princeton Hydro is seeking a mid-level Civil Engineer with expertise in water resources, civil engineering, and/or geotechnical/structural engineering with a solid overall understanding of civil and environmental engineering disciplines and a proven ability to manage multi-disciplinary projects. Founded in 1998 with the specific mission of providing integrated ecological and engineering consulting services, Princeton Hydro offers expertise in natural resource management, water resources engineering, geotechnical design & investigation and regulatory compliance. We take great pride in producing high-quality, value-added designs, which is a direct result of our highly skilled and talented team.  

Varied, significant, and direct U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other Federal agency experience is strongly preferred for this position.  Qualifications in several of the following disciplines is desired: water resources management, ecosystem restoration, flood risk management, coastal protection, navigation projects, dam safety, geotechnical/structural analysis and design, experience preparing design/project documentation reports, preparation of complex comprehensive federal agency design submissions (i.e., plans, specifications, basis of design documents, studies, etc.). Additionally, the ideal candidates will have routine experience managing projects with design fees upwards of $1 million, often serving as the direct point-of-contact with the client, and having overall or progressive responsibility for all aspects of the project. The position will be based in either Princeton Hydro's Ringoes or Sicklerville, NJ offices to support the growth of our firm’s growing business with Federal agencies.

The successful candidate must be passionate about ecosystem restoration of all kinds, and a love working on engineering solutions, regardless of the project type. A knack for understanding the nuances of natural systems when designing a project, as well as the strict disciplinary requirements of engineering theory, standards, regulation, and code is an essential, desired skill set. Project types will include dam restoration, dam removal, dredging, inland and coastal wetlands/marsh restoration, stormwater management, stream and floodplain restoration, and levee inspection and design, among other types of projects. The ideal candidate will  be a resourceful team player who enjoys collaboration across interdisciplinary teams with biologists, ecologists, fluvial geomorphologists, geologists, and engineers. This is an exciting and highly-rewarding career opportunity.

Qualified candidates must be willing to live our firm’s basic core values: integrity, creativity, endeavoring to be the best, fostering human potential, a positive working atmosphere, quality, and safety.
