The City of Lompoc is seeking a Senior Civil Engineer in its Public Works Department to join the capital improvement project staff team of engineers and engineering technicians.  The engineering staff works closely with the rest of the public works team, as well as the other City departments to benefit the entire community in solving a wide range of problems and guiding solutions to successful completion.  We identify needs; scope and budget improvements; design, manage construction, and evaluate performance of all kinds of infrastructure projects including pavement rehabilitation, utility upgrades, traffic control devices, new City building facilities and major rehabilitations, drainage improvements, and many more. 


The Senior Civil Engineers are the City’s primary project managers, problem solvers, and designers.  They investigate, evaluate, recommend solutions, apply for and administer funding grants, and bring ideas to reality to improve life in Lompoc.  The Senior Civil Engineers typically take their projects from concept through completion of construction in order to optimize project outcomes and maximize professional growth.  Additionally, the City encourages its engineering staff to complete at least 40 hours of training suited to the specific needs of individual staff members’ professional service, provided by the City each year.  Senior Civil Engineers gain communication and leadership work experience, regularly coordinating with many stakeholders, representing the City, and supporting the engineering team and the rest of the organization, reporting to the Principal Civil Engineer.


Growing increasingly effective, trusting, and collaborative relationships is critical for every member of the City’s engineering team.  We are dedicated to serving in the best interest of the public, meeting the needs of the City, supporting each other, and growing professionally.  We are committed to finding the right solutions; efficiently designing, constructing, and implementing them to a high standard; working with and following the direction of elected officials and City management; and positively leading our teams and projects to success.  Bring your technical skills and “can do” attitude and join us in serving Lompoc with excellence.
