When you think about the next step after college, what sort of lifestyle sounds right? If you’re looking for something more laidback – without the long highway commute, read on!


As a smaller firm we can offer options – no pigeon-holing here! You’ll get the opportunity to work on a diverse set of engineering and surveying challenges – drinking water supply, wastewater treatment, roads, stormwater – just the sort of broad experience you need for that last important test – your P.E. exam! (We also offer flexible scheduling so you can have time for test prep.) And we’re not kidding about the coffeeshop!

Life’s not all work…

Did we mention that our office is right in the heart of one of America’s great small towns? Step out our front door and you’re within an easy walk of great restaurants, shopping, beaches, and more. The Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore is a short drive. (If you’d like to be car-free check out BATA!) But you don’t have to take our word for it, lots of other people agree – Traverse City is an amazing place!

The dollars and sense:

We offer competitive wages, benefits, a 401K program, and profit-sharing. Our company is owned by active, working employees. If your dream is to one day own part of a company, that’s something that can happen here. (No moving to move up with us!)

If this sounds good to you (and we hope it does!) – then we invite you to upload a resume and cover letter. Let’s talk about the future – our careers text line is always open at 231.492.0515!
