You will need strong communication and interpersonal skills as you work closely with your Structural Lead, other Structural Engineers and Designers, and other disciplines.

It is expected that you have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of Structural Engineering, knowledge of multiple subject areas, experience with US building codes including seismic provisions, understand how Structural design integrates with and impacts other disciplines, and are building understanding of business trends and industry issues and challenges.
This position may require you to serve as a Lead Structural Engineer for medium sized projects, or as a Sub-Lead for larger projects. You will be given as much responsibility as you are willing to take, and your opportunities for career growth will be limited only by your own motivation, capabilities, and attitude.

o Possess knowledge of principles and practices of seismic design, including ability to apply required provisions of the building code.
• Exhibit a high level of attention to detail and quality control:
o Committed to checking your own work, reaching out to peers and seniors for guidance when questions arise.
o Perform calculation checking of other engineers' work.
• Take responsibility for managing workload, make and keep commitments, and take full ownership of assigned work:
o Take complete ownership of your portion of the structural scope, reliably working to meet schedule, budget, and quality requirements.
o You may be given tasks with ill-defined conditions of satisfaction, in which case you will be expected to take the initiative to determine what is needed to meet the project and client needs.
o Clearly define you own scope and start to develop your ability to forecast level of effort needed to complete that scope.
o Be ready to identify scope change and escalate it to your Structural Lead or Project Manager.
o Recognize when help is needed, reaching out to peers and senior engineers for guidance.
o Work in a timely, accurate, and cost-effective manner with strong attention to detail
• Developing leadership skills:
o Provide technical guidance, coaching, and/or mentorship to designers/drafters and less experienced engineers.
o Be proactive in advancing workflows, systems, and tools within the structural discipline. Embrace emerging technologies.
• As a Lead Structural Engineer for an assigned project:
o Lead a team of Structural Engineers and Designers in the development of calculations, specifications, construction drawings, and the structural model.
o Fully understand all structural scope, recognize how that scope is both generated and impacted by other disciplines, and identify scope change.
o Develop and manage schedule, budget, and staffing forecasts for the structural scope.
o Attend project meetings and take an active role to help team resolve concerns and solve problems across all disciplines.
o May be asked to act as the stamping Engineer of Record (upon conversion to client).
o Take ultimate responsibility for all aspects of the deliverables, including calculations and all construction documents.
