This posting is for two full-time positions in the City of Boulder's Public Works Department providing project management and civil engineering services in the Utilities Engineering work group. The City of Boulder has 15 major drainageways and an extensive stormwater collection system. The focus of these two positions is managing the full lifecycle of capital improvement projects and ongoing programs within the flood and stormwater utility.
One position is at the Civil Engineer II or Senior Civil Engineer level, depending on qualifications, and the second position is an Engineering Project Manager. Civil Engineers II and Senior Civil Engineers typically provide technical engineering services, lead the implementation of routine capital projects and ongoing programs, and assist with the implementation of larger and more complex projects as part of a team lead by Engineering Project Managers. Engineering Project Managers serve as an expert in their respective fields and are responsible for long term planning of utilities efforts, managing more complex or controversial projects, and providing oversight and collaboration on other projects affecting their field of expertise.
This section provides the minimum requirements applicable to both positions. The following 'Desired Qualifications' section provides additional qualifications that typically distinguish the Engineering Project Manager position.
Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering or related field and a minimum of five (5) years of experience, or equivalent experience in other career fields. Thorough knowledge of current engineering principles, practices, procedures, materials, and equipment as they apply to flood management, stream restoration, stormwater, and water quality programs and projects. Knowledge of federal, state and regional programs, regulations and policies dealing with stormwater, flood management, water quality, and wetlands. Excellent written and verbal communication skills including the ability to prepare clear and concise written correspondence, reports, and recommendations; and make clear and concise oral presentations. Current registration as a Professional Engineer or other relevant credentials such as registration as a Certified Floodplain Manager. Valid driver's license.
