Junior Hydraulic Engineer

Description

Junior hydraulic engineer will work on a variety hydrologic, hydraulic, and geomorphic analysis and design projects.  Our work includes large river hydraulic modeling, in-water design, and urban stormwater basin analysis.  Develop engineering designs for scour and bank protection, river restoration, relocated channels, and other in-stream work.  The junior engineer will work closely with experienced engineers on a wide variety of H&H projects and be involved from the analysis through design and construction phases.  Most of our clients are public (Counties, Cities, etc) or large private infrastructure.

Typical Tasks

  • Hydrologic Analysis: Gaged flow frequency analysis, basin modeling, flow calculations

  • Hydraulic Analysis: 1d or 2d modeling, normal depth calculations, hydraulic controls

  • Geomorphic Analysis: Scour evaluations, sediment transport studies, bank erosion analysis

  • Urban Stormwater: Basin hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, site specific modeling for design

  • In-stream Design: bed and bank protection, channel relocation, large woody debris, habitat

Minimum Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering (or closely related field) from ABET accredited program

  • EIT license

  • Basic understanding of hydraulics and hydrology

Desired Qualifications

 

  • Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering w/ Hydraulic or Hydrologic Thesis

  • Hydraulic Modeling experience: Open Channel (HEC-RAS, HY8), 2-D depth-averaged, SWMM stormwater/combined basins, HSPF or WWHM Hydrology, HEC-HMS

  • Flow frequency analysis

  • GIS (qgis) and Civil3D/Autocad experience

  • 1-2 years of consulting or engineering experience

  • Sediment Transport understanding, analysis, modeling

  • Surveying (Total Station, GPS-RTK) and stream gaging

  • Some experience working in a professional engineering or consulting setting

  • Python Coding (or other languages)

 

Other Notes:

Indicator Engineering PLLC is an equal opportunity employer. We are a small firm specializing in hydraulics, hydrology and geomorphology in Washington.  Position includes the occasional field work, long days, travel is typically within WA, typical work week is 40 hours.  This is a salaried position, with competitive benefits and laid-back small office work environment.  All submitted information is assumed to be private and will not be shared with any other employers.

Mid-Level Hydraulic Engineer

Description

Mid-level hydraulic engineer will work on a variety hydrologic, hydraulic, and geomorphic analysis and design projects.  Our work includes large river hydraulic modeling, in-water design, and urban stormwater basin analysis.  Develop engineering designs for scour and bank protection, river restoration, relocated channels, and other in-stream work.  Perform a wide range of analyses using various hydraulic model packages and hydrologic modeling and analysis.  The hydraulic engineer will work closely with experienced engineers on a wide variety of H&H projects and be involved from the analysis through design and construction phases.  Most of our clients are local public agencies (Counties, Cities, etc) in Washington or large private infrastructure.  The engineer should have experience with hydraulic/riverine engineering analysis and design, and be looking to develop additional analytical and design skills. Should be comfortable performing many aspects of a project such as: data collection, mapping, analysis, design and reporting. 

Typical Tasks

  • Hydrologic Analysis: Gaged flow frequency analysis, basin modeling, flow calculations
