Survey our people. Find out how many of them joined us because we created opportunities for them. Why? Because, first and foremost, we seek to hire great human beings – people who have resilient values, a robust work ethic, and the desire and potential to flourish within one or more of our consulting groups: Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Services, Building Materials, Pavements, Construction Materials Services, or Engineering Design. Your growth and opportunities are limited only by your ambition and imagination. Do you want to follow a technical career path that includes project management or team leadership? Want to mentor, develop and lead others? Perhaps you would enjoy the challenge of introducing new service areas or landing new projects and clients. Talk to us. We’ll help you build on your strengths so you remain excited about your work.

What’s important to you? Character? Learning? Ambition? Complexity? Creativity? Diversity? Compassion? Camaraderie? They are all important to us. To be an SME team member, you have to work hard, think fast, do more, and be there for your fellow team members and clients. If you measure up, we’ll train you and reward you with enriching career experiences. There’s no limit to what you and SME can accomplish – together.

Rewards beyond compensation

Your success and SME’s future are unquestionably linked. We’re small enough that you won’t get lost in the crowd, but big enough for you to explore a variety of career options within and between our major service groups. Many of our team members have built and “changed careers” while remaining at SME for 15 or more years.

We realize your needs extend beyond base pay. That’s why employee benefits are an important part of your total compensation package at SME. From group medical and prescription coverage, to life and disability, to long-term care insurance, we’ve got you covered. One more perk: performance bonuses. Yes, they’re discretionary, but we believe in rewarding exceptional ways you contribute to SME’s success. And, we are 100% employee-owned, providing committed members of our team the opportunity to share in our company’s success through SME shareholder programs.

We realize you can’t have a great life at work unless you have a satisfying life away from work. So, we give you ample time to recharge your batteries – to spend time with family and friends. And, while you’re off having fun, you won’t need to worry about your benefits:

  • Major Medical and Prescription Insurance (no Employee-paid premiums)
  • Traditional and Roth 401(k) Options and 401(k) Matching program
