Toole Design Group in Austin, TX is looking to hire a passionate and talented full-time Engineer I/II to join our team as part of the City of Austin’s Active Transportation and Street Design Division (ATSD). Do you have a strong background in civil engineering with roadway/bikeway design or site development experience?

Do you enjoy seeing your projects get built and want to take part in big changes happening in Austin? If so, please consider joining our Austin team.

This Engineer I/II position with a focus on multimodal roadway design and active transportation earns a competitive salary and great benefits, including medical, dental, vision, life insurance, disability, a health savings account (HSA), and a flexible spending account (FSA).

About Toole Design

Toole Design is the leading engineering, planning, and landscape architecture firm specializing in multimodal transportation.

Our talented team of planners, landscape architects and engineers are committed to delivering quality work that meets the needs of all people, regardless of age, ability, race or gender. We have been named a “best firm to work for” and have one of the lowest staff turnover rates in the industry.

Every project our employees deliver directly and positively affects our communities. We are industry-leading experts, and we work hard to encourage a collaborative and team-oriented environment.

A Day in the Life of an Engineer I/II

You are at the forefront of brainstorming creative solutions for challenging quick-build projects. Like larger capital projects, which are predominantly constructed with asphalt and concrete materials, quick-build projects are meant to be built quickly using a variety of materials, flexible delivery processes, and funding mechanisms that are developing rapidly. As a member of the augmented staff team, you will support an interdisciplinary team to deliver quick-build multimodal transportation infrastructure projects in a wide range of contexts, from roadway reconfigurations in highly urban settings to full intersection reconstructions to better serve all users. You will share your knowledge with a diverse team to develop project scopes, concept plans, and ultimately deliver final construction plan documents. You will use drafting programs such as MicroStation to fulfill project deliverables, while ensuring that our projects are consistently of the highest quality. You will also have access to key department leaders within the City of Austin’s transportation department, who will help to set clear project goals and outcomes.

Rapid implementation is exciting and fast-paced, but you get to work with a close-knit, motivated team that is passionate about the work they do. You will get to see your projects evolve from paper to pavement, transforming the City of Austin and getting to use the facilities you helped design.

Qualifications of a Senior Civil Engineer/Roadway Engineer:

A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in civil/transportation engineering
0+ years (Engineer I), 2+ years (Engineer II) of transportation facility design experience, with a demonstrated interest in developing construction documents
Experience with Computer Automated Design (MicroStation/AutoCad)
Interest in multimodal and active transportation issues and design (specifically for bicycle, pedestrian, Safe Routes to School, and/or transit integration) for all ages and abilities
Excellent task and time management skills
Excellent communication skills
Experience with the Microsoft Office suite of applications
You’ll be great here if:

You enjoy participating in multi-disciplinary teams
You are passionate about sustainability and the opportunity to work on challenging multimodal projects that make communities more livable
You enjoy producing high-quality work products and seeing your projects get built
You have strong communication skills, whether written, verbal, or graphically
