GeoEngineers – Why Work For Us?


Our Company

More than 30 years ago, GeoEngineers’ founders envisioned an employee-owned company of technical experts known for their integrity and strong client relationships. We have made good on our founders’ vision, earning a reputation as creative thinkers and trusted advisors who work in partnership with our clients on their most challenging projects.

Thanks to these enduring client bonds, GeoEngineers has grown from a small consulting partnership to a talented, multidisciplinary team of more than 360 people who work in 14 offices nationwide. Our record of success is evident in the more than 40,000 projects we’ve completed worldwide for a broad range of public and private clients. 


Our Expertise

Where your business needs are connected to the natural or built environment, we have unmatched expertise to support your projects. Our unique approach combines traditional earth science and engineering consulting services with state of the art technology solutions that help manage data and reduce risk.

Throughout our history, we have continually adapted to changing client needs by expanding our technical expertise. This includes initiatives such as GeoEngineers’ technology development team, which works closely with scientists and other subject-matter experts to build software solutions that help clients efficiently manage environmental data, meet reporting requirements and streamline their business processes.


Our People

Our staff is deeply committed to making a positive impact in the client organizations and communities we serve. Each employee has a highly developed specialty, whether they are an engineer, scientist, software developer or one of our other business professionals. This talent, combined with broad employee ownership and deeply held values of respect and trust, result in a remarkable team. We think you’ll agree.


Our Principles

As a firm, GeoEngineers is driven by a set of core principles. These principles are foundational to our long-term strategy, our daily work and even our personal lives. Collectively and individually, our success depends on:

  • Empathy: thinking about clients’ challenges from their point of view, and asking them about their needs with curiosity and compassion.
  • Grit: the courage, passion, and tenacity to achieve our goals—even when it’s not easy.
  • Mastery: a dedication to strive for mastery of ourselves through self-examination and continuous improvement, personally and professionally.

Watch the video below to learn more about GeoEngineers and the principles that define us.

Community Outreach

More than half of our staff actively engage in philanthropy, and many more volunteer their time to help various professional, business and environmental pursuits. GeoEngineers supports employees’ individual causes through an active charitable giving program.

Sustainability

We specialize in protecting our clients’ interests and the environment in a sustainable way. For more information about our sustainable services and projects

Conserving resources — including water, energy, land, habitat, minerals or materials — is imperative in today’s competitive environment and is the focus of many of our clients’ sustainability initiatives. Our biologists, geologists, engineers and technology specialists work every day with clients looking to make the most of their resources and build for the future.

At GeoEngineers, we believe that, in addition to conservation, sustainability can also mean optimizing existing systems, as with our work maximizing ground source heat pump performance, or returning land to more beneficial use, as in our brownfields initiatives like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Headquarters project. All of these approaches can help make the best use of resources, reduce lifecycle costs and provide long-term benefits to the community.

GeoEngineers’ expertise in earth systems makes us the ideal team to help clients explore these paths to sustainability. Here are just a few examples of how our science and technology expertise has yielded cost-effective, innovative and sustainable solutions for our clients:

Used our specialized skills to design new marshes and shoreline protection features along the Louisiana Gulf Coast

Helped a consortium of utility companies, university scientists and a state agency determine where to site a geologic carbon sequestration facility

Worked with a city municipality to maximize stormwater storage and infiltration using a natural aquifer
Rejuvenated a contaminated industrial site to enable a new, sustainable commercial development
Designed an in-stream irrigation diversion that benefits both people and fish
Helped design the first Living Building in Washington state

How We’re Different

We're dedicated to cultivating our most important resource — you. Take on new challenges side-by-side with team members devoted to our clients, each other, and improving the world we share. Here's what matters to us.

Career Development

We never stop learning. Receive both formal and on-the-job training from experienced professionals in your field. Get tuition assistance for career-related courses and embrace opportunities for leadership as your career advances. Join us and let’s grow together.

GeoUniversity

Our comprehensive professional growth program, GeoUniversity, provides learning opportunities through live sessions, webinars, and online courses. Train on leadership, project management and a range of technical topics that will enrich your skills no matter where you are in your career.

Work-Life Balance

Life is more than work. We believe that quality time spent out of the office can enrich your professional as well as your personal life. We promote balance in the lives of our employees by:

Providing our staff with a suportive and flexible work environment that enables them to fulfill obligations on and off the job.

Organizing group activities such as hiking, camping, biking, rafting and snowshoeing.

Supporting our employees in their individual pursuits — from races and other competitions to personal causes.
