- Experience with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
- Proficient verbal and written communication skills necessary to effectively collaborate in a team environment and present and explain technical information.
In Addition at the TSS.3 level:
- Advanced knowledge of and significant experience with fundamental concepts, techniques, practices and procedures for completing tasks or projects in structural engineering.
- Experience with the structural provisions of the latest building codes and standards such as California Building Code (CBC), International Building Code (IBC), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and Department of Energy (DOE-STD-1020).
- Significant experience in advanced design, alteration and construction of commercial, industrial and/or laboratory facilities.
- Membership in professional organizations such as ASCE/SEI.
- Experience designing nonstructural component bracing and anchorage.
- Ability to use AutoCAD and Revit to prepare design drawings.
Pre-Employment Drug Test: External applicant(s) selected for this position will be required to pass a post-offer, pre-employment drug test. This includes testing for use of marijuana as Federal Law applies to us as a Federal Contractor.
Security Clearance: This position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) Q-level clearance.
If you are selected, we will initiate a Federal background investigation to determine if you meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information or matter. In addition, all L or Q cleared employees are subject to random drug testing. Q-level clearance requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold multiple citizenships (U.S. and another country), you may be required to renounce your non-U.S. citizenship before a DOE L or Q clearance will be processed/granted.
