$6,413 - $10,617 / Month
The Public Works Department of the County of San Mateo is seeking candidates for the position of Assistant/Associate/Associate Civil Engineer to join our skilled and dedicated team.
ASSISTANT ENGINEER is the entry- and trainee-level in the professional civil engineering series. Under immediate supervision, employees perform first-level professional civil engineering field and office work while acting in a trainee capacity in connection with the planning, design, construction and maintenance of a wide variety of civil engineering projects.
ASSOCIATE ENGINEER is the journey-level job classification and ASSOCIATE CIVIL ENGINEER is the registered journey level classification in the engineering series. At both levels, a high degree of technical expertise and some periodic lead responsibilities are required. Under general supervision, incumbents may perform a variety of professional engineering services in such areas as planning, design and construction inspection of roads, park trails, bridges, drainage, sanitary sewer systems, water supply, and other public works projects. Associate Civil Engineers may provide lead direction to other staff in completing projects of greater difficulty and complexity. Incumbents will be required to perform field work in support of the planning, the design and/or construction inspection of public works projects.
