Coastal Engineer Job Opportunities at Environmental Science Associates, San Francisco

Environmental Science Associates (ESA) is seeking two Coastal Engineers to join our Coastal Zone Engineering and Management Group in our San Francisco office – one mid-level coastal engineer and one entry-level coastal engineer.

ESA is an environmental science, planning, and engineering consulting firm that is a leader in water resources management and ecosystem restoration. Our work integrates rigorous science with practical engineering solutions to address a range of problems affecting environments from the headwaters to the coast. Ranked as a Zweig White Top 10 Best Environmental Firms to Work For, ESA is a 100% employee-owned firm with a commitment to the principles of sustainability.

Primary responsibilities include quantitative analysis of physical processes and engineering in support of multi-objective shore and wetland enhancement designs and natural resource management. Both positions will work closely with our existing team of hydrologists, geomorphologists, biologists and engineers, and experienced coastal engineers to help restore, enhance and maintain our natural shores and wetlands.

Requirements for Mid-Level Coastal Engineer

* 5 years minimum relevant work experience and a Master of Science or higher degree

* Strong technical foundation in physical coastal processes such as wave theory or sediment transport analysis and modeling

* Possess a California Professional Engineers license or be working toward achieving this license

Requirements for Entry-Level Coastal Engineer

* Master of Science or higher degree in engineering

* Strong technical foundation in physical coastal processes such as wave theory or sediment transport analysis and modeling

* Possess an Engineer-In-Training license and be working toward achieving a Professional Engineers license.

For both positions, desirable but not required experience includes: coastal/civil engineering design (including a professional civil engineers license), wave transport of fine, cohesive sediment (e.g. San Francisco Bay mud), and prior consulting and/or project management experience. Must have strong verbal and written communication skills, and the ability to work effectively on teams with a variety of stakeholders and other professionals.

ESA works primarily in California, but has projects throughout the West. Current eligibility to work in the US is required.
