SME employees working together

SME is committed to helping team members professionally grow.

SME seeks 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. We provide a career environment that fosters professional growth and development, opportunity, and collegiality. We encourage anyone interested in pursuing a consulting career in our areas of expertise to connect with us. Your growth and opportunities are limited only by your ambition and imagination.

SME Groups include: Building Materials, Construction Engineering Inspection, Construction Materials, Environmental, Geotechnical, Pavement, Steel/Coatings/Nondestructive Testing, and Survey.

What We are Looking for in Our Team Members
Character, authenticity, ambition, creativity, knowledge-seeking, inquisitiveness, compassion, diversity of thought, and camaraderie. To be successful at SME, you will work hard, think fast, do more, and be there for your team and clients. There’s no limit to what you and SME can accomplish – together.

Leadership Development Opportunities at SME
Many of our team members desire a career path that includes project management and leadership. If this is something you would like to pursue or learn more about, we encourage you to let us know. We’ll help you build on your strengths so you continue to pursue your interests and remain excited about your work. We offer a dynamic leadership development program to help you explore your potential.

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, life and disability insurance, to long-term care insurance, we take care of our team members. Additionally, we offer discretionary performance bonuses. We believe in rewarding the exceptional ways you contribute to SMEs success. As a 100% employee-owned, company, we provide committed members of our team the opportunity to share in our success through SME shareholder programs. Finally, we realize you can’t have a great life at work unless you have a satisfying life away from work. We provide ample time to recharge your batteries and spend time with family and friends.
