Influence Transportation Design in California

We’re a company of entrepreneurial individuals empowered to collaborate, innovate, and develop creative solutions that improve communities. We’re looking for an individual who’s passionate about design and thrives in an environment that encourages initiative, vision, autonomy, and creativity. Working closely with our Engineering leadership, as well as individual office leaders and local engineering staff, we’re looking for someone to be engaged in a variety of design projects to help grow our design practice in California. Does that sound like you?


We're not Corporate driven.

We’re given autonomy to make our own name in the market, cultivate our own clients, and develop our own projects.


Collaboration is a core value.

Direct access to technical experts from around the company for advice and teaming makes for a fulfilling work environment.

This is a true leadership opportunity.

…with steep growth potential. You’ll be empowered to inspire and shape our design practice.

We put our money where our mouth is.

We invest our own money in R&D inspired initiatives to propel the state-of-the-practice.

Demand for our engineering design services continues to grow companywide. We need to grow our engineering team to meet this demand and our commitment to exceeding client expectations. Come help us grow!


Principal, Engineering Discipline Group Leader

I’m enjoying my involvement in a variety of design tasks with our SF Bay Area offices, and am excited to collaborate with others who are passionate about transportation design.


Transportation Engineer/Planner

We’re seeing new and exciting design growth in Southern California.  I would appreciate having someone with design experience that can support this growth on everything from conceptual design to construction documents in the Southern California region.
