Your Opportunity

Our Water sector, which brings together many of the world’s top engineers and scientists, sees water a bit differently—as a single holistic system rather than as unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. We use this perspective to help communities tap into water’s potential. Throughout the life cycle of capture, use, reuse, and discharge, our team optimizes every facet of a water system. Whether a project calls for planners, designers, construction managers, or facility operators, we have the right experts to provide creative, yet practical, water solutions. Through our cost-effective strategies, we’re helping communities increase their water efficiency and protect their water resources for future generations. Join our team as we create new ways to tap into water’s vast potential. 


Stantec’s Nevada City and/or Rocklin, CA office is seeking a Senior Wastewater Engineer to join our Water group.

Your Duties

As the successful candidate, you will use your technical abilities to plan and design all aspects of wastewater infrastructure systems in a design team setting. You are an excellent communicator, both oral and written, with strong organizational and leadership skills.  This is a work environment where your abilities will strengthen and grow through a diverse range of projects focused on the delivery and management of water, wastewater and stormwater solutions.


Primary responsibilities include:

  • Work individually or with a team to undertake the design of wastewater infrastructure (e.g., pipelines, pump stations, lift stations).

  • Experience in AutoCAD Civil 3D (version 2014).
  • Respond to Requests for Proposal (RFP) by interviewing the perspective client, preparing Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) and Proposals, and participating in selection interviews.
  • Prepare scopes of work, fee estimates, and schedules for design and construction phases of projects.

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Civil Engineering from an accredited university.
  • Minimum of 15 years water planning, modeling, and design related experience in an engineering consulting environment.
  • Currently registered as a Professional Engineer (P.E.) in California or able to obtain a California P.E. License within six (6) months from the date of hire.
