You found us! If you are pursuing a civil, transportation or traffic engineering career and you have been trained in the conventional aspects of site readiness, planning and design, we’ve got a desk waiting for you. Sebago Technics isn’t your standard flavor engineering firm, we’re the most creative collective of industry specialists in the region, and we’re on a mission of shaping together. You’re invited!
Skills are important, but who you are is even more important. We have a deep respect for people, and are most interested in working with great listeners who are excited to share fresh, new, hyper-creative ideas with people from every side of a project. Picture yourself around a table with other engineers, surveyors, and landscape architects and CAD designers who enjoy working together to design high-level projects within a dynamic and continuous conversation. No one works in a silo, everything we do is shaping, and we do it together with great intentionality. We respect this process internally, and we invite our clients to respect it too. We love to watch new team members’ faces as they realize how much we value what they know and have learned. Everyone contributes because we all own this company together, literally.
If you’re on board with the culture, then continue reading for a few of the high points and skills that will make this job a good fit for you and all of us.
We have our eye on engineers who are fully educated in the conventional aspects of site readiness, planning and design. You’ll be applying your knowledge of engineering principles and practices into extremely broad areas of assignments and related fields. Every project is different, and we are never rinsing and repeating anything. We work on a huge variety of project sizes and types. This work requires the use of design theories and practices and all design-related sciences and disciplines. We’re a creative collective, so you’ll have to be someone who comes up with new approaches to problems as they are encountered. The problem-solving part of our brains is always going. This position requires solid engineering and writing skills that will allow you to bring others along with your ideas and produce shareable work
We know people come to the table with differing skill sets and experiences. If you have all or just some of the following, we would love to chat with you.
This position can be fulfilled by either a highway design engineer or a traffic engineer that has the level of technical and managerial experience indicated. The ideal candidate will be skilled in business development, technical analysis and design, and project management/client relations.
If the candidate’s specialty is highway design, s/he shall have a demonstrated background in managing and designing state-level Department of Transportation projects in the highway and bridge field. This work shall include the following: roadway and intersection geometric design, closed and open drainage analysis and design, pavement design, pavement marking and signage design, ADA compliance, preparation of Maintenance of Traffic Plans, and multimodal facility design. Our staff is comprised of sellers/doers, so it is required that the candidate be proficient in Bentley’s In-Roads and Microstation (or Civil 3D and Autocad) for plan production. Proficiency in Microsoft’s Word and Excel are also a requirement. In addition, familiarity with design-bid-build, as well as alternative forms of project delivery, such as design/build and CMGC is desired. Some field experience is also a plus.
If the candidate’s specialty is traffic engineering, s/he shall have a demonstrated background in both traffic analysis and traffic signal, and signal system, design. Proficiency with Synchro/SimTraffic and/or Vissim is a requirement. Our traffic engineering staff is frequently required to write reports and make public presentations. As such, communication skills, both written and oral, must be polished. Our traffic engineering practice includes a subset of signal operations and management for a variety of communities and metropolitan planning organizations. As such, if a candidate has any experience with operating centralized traffic signal systems, that would be a plus.
Business development will be an integral aspect of this position regardless of their technical specialty. The candidate will be required to assist the Director of Transportation Services with proposal writing, presentations, and client development and management. Our project managers are the main focal points for all of our projects both internally and with clients. Being able to work independently in this regard, with support from the Director is the expectation.
While many of our assignments do not require large staffs, the candidate will be required to work with less experienced staff in a mentoring role and on some projects to get individual tasks accomplished. Assisting the Director, coaching younger staff in their development is included as an expectation of this position, as is assisting with quality assurance and quality control for the Team.
