Associate or Assistant Engineer - Town of Truckee, CA (Assistant Engineer $6,530.41 to $8,816.05 per month or Associate Engineer $$7,199.77 to $9,719.70 per month) The Town of Truckee is seeking a highly-motivated team player with good communication skills and attention to detail to perform professional level engineering tasks for the Town’s Engineering Division. The position includes the opportunity to work on all phases of project development (planning, design review, and construction) for both the Town’s Capital Improvement Program and private development projects. The Engineering Division works on the implementation of a variety of projects including new trails, roundabouts, streetscape improvements, roadway infrastructure, and miscellaneous Council priorities, such as new parks or new Town facility infrastructure. On the private side, the Division oversees the design and construction of site improvements associated with private development, such as the recent Raley’s, Grocery Outlet, Truckee Lumber Yard development, and affordable housing projects.

The Associate/Assistant Engineer positions are also responsible for administering grant funds when applicable, and responding to citizen requests related to the Engineering Division’s responsibilities, such as sign requests, drainage issues, or traffic concerns. The ideal candidate has experience in various facets of engineering such as plan review, site design, construction inspection, and traffic engineering, as well as good communication skills (for both one-on-one conversations and formal presentations).

The Associate Engineer position requires registration as a professional engineer and the ability to perform the full range of duties assigned with only occasional instruction or assistance as unusual or unique situations arise.

The Assistant Engineer position is distinguished from the Associate level by the performance of less than the full range of duties involving less complex projects, additional oversight by the Engineering Manager on projects, and the absence of registration as a professional engineer in the State of California. Our division values teamwork, communication, service, fairness, and fun. We look forward to welcoming a new member to the team!
