We are recruiting for a traffic investigations engineer to provide analysis for the development of transportation improvements at our Region 1 Headquarters in historic downtown Portland. Showcase your expertise as you apply technical expertise to solve complex problems and further grow your skillset as you help lead and coordinate the region’s Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).
The goal of this recruitment is to fill this position at a professional engineer 1 level. However, we encourage candidates who meet the minimum qualifications for an associate in engineering 2 ($4,272 - $6,309 monthly) to apply, as we may consider under-filling the position until the selected candidate acquires a professional engineer's license. Under-filling will not exceed 24 months.
We invite members of all diverse communities to join our workforce as we endeavor to best serve Oregonians from every background. ODOT values diversity and inclusion because they are good for Oregon. We believe that by welcoming differences, encouraging new ideas and views, listening to and learning from each other, and providing opportunities for professional enrichment we are better able to serve those around us. We thank you for considering this employment opportunity.

Additionally, driving is an essential function of this position. A valid driver license and an acceptable driving record are required for this position, including the under-fill option.
What we need for the associate in engineering 2 under-fill option:
