Civil Engineers - Create better surroundings, work inside and outside

SHN is actively recruiting up to four mid/senior level civil engineers specializing in water, wastewater, public works, and environmental services.

What's great about these jobs?

  • Work inside and outside
  • See projects from designs on screen/paper to construction and operations
  • Build friendships with co-workers and clients, working is a team atmosphere
  • Know that projects improve and benefit public and environmental health and safety

Who is SHN?  SHN is a small business that incorporated in Eureka, California in 1979.  Weathering recessions and natural disasters, we have grown to support offices in Eureka, Arcata, Willits, and Redding, California, and in Coos Bay and Klamath Falls, Oregon.  SHN offers a competitive benefits plan, and the opportunity to lead interesting civil and environmental engineering projects that benefit our communities. 

Who are we looking for?  Three essential requirements for these jobs are:

  1. Ability to meet deadlines and work gracefully under time constraints
  2. Experience in technical duties as listed in specific job descriptions for civil engineers focusing on water, wastewater, public works, and environmental services (please click on links to read detailed job descriptions)
  3. Excellent communications skills and ability to work in teams as member or leader

Where is the work?  Work is in Northern California and Southern Oregon, with municipal work occurring in small towns and cities.  Work for commercial clients, special districts, and county and state agencies can take us out to beautiful and scenic coastal, forested, river, and valley project sites.  Some of our staff live within small cities (Eureka, Willits, Fort Bragg, Ukiah, Arcata, Fortuna, Redding, Coos Bay, Klamath Falls) but others live within short commuting distance on rural properties that allow for horses and livestock, large gardens, and open space.  Through working and living in our small communities, we directly experience the social, economic, and environmental benefits that our projects bring.
