Well established in the emerging stormwater field, Stormwater Maintenance & Consulting (SMC) is seeking an enthusiastic leader who has a passion for restoring the Chesapeake Bay. The position will entail managing the design of challenging restoration projects for non-profit organizations, commercial landowners, and MS-4 municipalities. As existing infrastructure specialists with leading edge projects, you will be challenged technically while enjoying a vibrant working environment. You will lead our enthusiastic group of professionals who have a passion for all things stormwater while contributing to the growth of one of the Mid-Atlantic's leading stormwater focused firms.
Based in Hunt Valley, Maryland, our design assignments are located throughout the Baltimore/Washington corridor. You will oversee final design and drawing preparation on unique projects that include repair and remediation of existing stormwater facilities, retrofit of existing facilities to meet current water quality requirements, new facilities that treat existing impervious areas, and other environmental improvement projects, such as stream restoration. SMC is a unique organization. As in the case of many other design firms, we have comprehensive in-house capabilities that include engineering, natural resource management, landscape architecture, and surveying. But that is where comparisons to other firms end for engineers who want to experience a real-world perspective that is at the core of the practice of engineering. SMC also provides construction, general contracting, and operations and maintenance services with in-house resources. We routinely do design/build with only in-house resources – the way it should be. This means that your professional judgement and design decisions will be informed by co-workers who, every day, actually build and maintain what you design. No more theories or guessing.
The Director of Design is responsible for all aspects of our engineering and inspection effort including marketing, proposal preparation, scheduling, resource allocation, personnel management, technical oversight, and quality control. This is a senior management position and also involves working with the Owners and other Directors on corporate leadership issues including strategic planning. This reports directly to the Owners and has the potential for participating in an ownership transition in the future.
Licensed Professional Engineer or Professional Land Surveyor in Maryland or qualified for reciprocity.
At least 10 years on-hands experience designing stormwater management or stream restoration.
At least 3 years experience managing professional services staff.
Positive and motivating can-do outlook.
A degree in civil or agricultural/biological engineering or equivalent experience.
Good communication skills (respectful, friendly, outgoing, courteous, etc)
Capability to work in both office and field environments.
Experience with stormwater and erosion & sediment control design, preferably in Maryland, is absolutely required.
Experience, a clear understanding, and technical interest in hydrology and hydraulics, including TR-55, TR-20, HEC-RAS, etc.
Experience and proficiency in AutoCAD and Civil 3D. We are a design/draft culture, so CAD is a must.
Experience with preparation of permit and construction drawings and specification.
Experience in the details of obtaining stormwater approvals from counties, Soil Conservation Districts, and/or the Maryland Department of the Environment.
We are a 100% digital workplace, so you must be comfortable with producing work product and communicating via computer.
Additional Salary Information: Salary commensurate with experience and client base.
