About Town of Truckee

Assistant Engineer ($7,543.60 – $10,183.86/month) / Associate Engineer ($8,316.83 – $11,227.70/month) – Town of Truckee, CA

The Town of Truckee is seeking a highly motivated team player with good communication skills and attention to detail to perform professional level engineering and project management tasks for the Town’s Engineering Division. The position includes the opportunity to work on all phases of project development (planning, design review, and construction) for both the Town’s Capital Improvement Program and private development projects.

The Engineering Division works on the implementation of a variety of projects including new trails, roundabouts, streetscape improvements, roadway infrastructure, and miscellaneous Council priorities, such as new parks or new Town facility infrastructure. On the private side, the Division oversees the design and construction of site improvements associated with private development, such as the recent Raley’s, High Altitude Fitness, Truckee Lumber Yard development, and affordable housing projects. The Assistant/Associate Engineer positions are also responsible for administering grant funds when applicable and responding to community requests related to the Engineering Division’s responsibilities, such as sign requests, drainage issues, or traffic concerns.

The ideal candidate has experience in various facets of engineering such as plan review, site design, construction inspection, stormwater management, and traffic engineering, as well as good communication skills for both one-on-one conversations and public presentations.

The Associate Engineer position requires registration as a professional engineer in the State of California and the ability to perform the full range of duties assigned with only occasional instruction or assistance as unusual or unique situations arise. The Assistant Engineer position is distinguished from the Associate level by the performance of less than the full range of duties involving less complex projects, additional oversight by the Senior Engineer on projects, and the absence of registration as a professional engineer in the State of California. The successful candidate will be hired into either position based on skills and experience.

Our Engineering team values teamwork, communication, service, fairness, and fun.  We look forward to welcoming a new member to the team!
