Since 1962 Ifland Engineers has been providing civil and structural design services to thousands of private and public clients and is providing an immediate opportunity for a highly skilled Civil Engineer who is comfortable in a client-driven environment.

But we need some help.

We have an opportunity to expand our services, but taking that on is no small task and demands focused attention to give it the best opportunity for success.

At present, our firm management staff is too immersed in “the weeds” to spend sufficient time on those long-range objectives that, while not urgent, we feel are critical to the future success of our firm.

In order to do that, we need to have someone who is capable of helping field inquiries for new work, develop scopes of services, and prepare profitable proposals.  We need someone who can help manage projects and take the lead on client communications.  We need someone who has experience overseeing and directing staff in designing projects that meet our clients’ goals while shielding us from liability.  And we need someone who doesn’t mind “getting their hands dirty” and designing projects themselves.

Having someone on board with these skills will free us to focus more of our efforts on the important, but not necessarily urgent, tasks that will drive our business in the future.

OK, so let’s get specific.  What exactly are the skills and experience we’re looking for?  What types of markets do we serve and what types of projects you would be responsible for managing and designing?  Here’s a look:

We provide feasibility, site planning, and design services for the following markets:

  • office/commercial
  • mixed-use
  • multi-family housing
  • civic
  • healthcare
  • education
  • subdivisions
  • wet utilities
  • roadways

Required Experience:

  • Proposal preparation
  • Project management
  • Client communications
  • Project design utilizing Civil 3D
  • Staff oversight and direction
  • Preparing technical specifications
  • Preparing stormwater reports and supporting calculations
  • Construction cost estimating
  • Construction support

Qualified applicants will possess a minimum of 5 years of experience in these areas with evidence of increasing responsibilities.  This is not a position we are looking to train someone into.  You must be prepared to make an immediate contribution with minimal supervision upon coming aboard.

If you feel you may have what we’re looking for, please reach out and introduce yourself by submitting a cover letter and resume to and we’ll follow up with more information about our firm and our standard application forms.

Thanks very much for your consideration.  We look forward to chatting with you soon

We prefer to hire a licensed Civil Engineer in California with 5 years of experience in Land Development. 5 years of experience in Project Design using Civil 3D is a must.
