So, here’s how we work. We all get together (and we mean everyone from every needed specialty) to shape an idea. You’ll have an engineer around the table with a landscape architect, a surveyor, maybe even a traffic engineer. From this invigorating first moment of creativity, we are shaping something. This is a chance to learn and advance your land surveying skills in a dynamic environment with some incredible peers who are there to teach and inspire and learn from you. We’re looking for someone who is advanced in their career, so if you have a two-year degree or comparable experience, practice in being a good listener, and the ability and desire to collaborate and learn inside the collective, you better just go ahead and submit an application. We can’t wait to meet you!
We currently are seeking candidates for Surveyors to work out of our Bridgton, Falmouth, and/or South Portland locations.
Typical Duties and Responsibilities:
This is our outline to provide points of clarity. While it’s not exhaustive, these are good specifics to be aware of. Not every single person meets every single one of these criteria, don’t let that stop you from applying. Together, we shape the new owner and teammate experience with thoughtful training and ever-present peer support.
