Bridge Engineer II

Michael Baker International Ontario, CA Full-Time

Michael Baker International addresses bridge design, construction, and preservation challenges with innovative and sustainable solutions.  Exemplifying its depth and versatility in the bridge space, Michael Baker International, ranked Number 5 by Engineering News-Record in its annual ranking of Bridge Design Firms in the United States, has partnered with clients on all phases of design and inspection across the full spectrum of bridge types - from design of cast-in-place or precast prestressed concrete girder freeway and river crossings, steel plate girder railroad grade separations, and seismic design and retrofits, to inspection, load rating, and repair of major steel truss, cable‑stayed, suspension, and tied-arch river crossings, to design-build project delivery contractor partnerships and construction support engineering, and everything in-between.  The Michael Baker Bridge Practice consists of over 300 engineering professionals dedicated to providing the highest quality solutions for our clients through teamwork and inter-office collaboration that leverages a deep bench of technical knowledge and experience.  Our local bridge team is growing!  We’re looking for engineers with vision and initiative to play an integral role in that growth.  We believe that we are stronger together and are on a mission to build an outstanding, supremely capable, and cohesive team.  Each of our engineers is critically valuable to our success and we support the development of unique, personally crafted careers.  You will have the freedom to work from the location of your choice throughout Southern California and beyond with opportunities to meet with local staff and management in-person as needed.  We’re shaking up the old paradigm and handing the reins to you to build your best career.  Come build with us!

As a part of the local Bridge Group and regional Bridge Practice, you will be responsible for preparing structural plans, specifications, cost estimates, calculations, reports, and general technical support for civil infrastructure projects including bridges, retaining walls, flood control structures, and other transportation related structures.  You will support local Southern California projects, regional projects throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Arizona, as well as projects throughout the country as needed.  You will have the opportunity to grow your technical competency focusing on the direction of your choice under the guidance and with the support of senior engineers and managers such that you can take on increasingly challenging tasks with commensurately increasing responsibility and autonomy. 

Anticipated responsibilities include the following:

  • Capital projects are often large and multi-disciplinary, involving all civil technical disciplines, often from multiple public and private organizations, as well as contract management and oversight professionals from multiple agencies.  For the consultant to provide the most effective service and phased deliverables, exceedingly talented communicators and collaborators are required.  It is our experience and firm belief that the most valuable skill for the long-term success of the bridge engineer is the ability to effectively communicate complex ideas, both written and spoken.  You will be required to communicate in all forms, regularly, with the understanding that your communication is a reflection of our local competency, our larger business, and our dedication to professionalism.
  • Preparation of construction/contract documents (PS&E), technical studies and reports, and supporting calculations and documentation.
  • Competency in the use of bridge specific finite element analysis, section analysis, design, post-processing, and related software. 
  • Application of bridge design safety code requirements, including AASHTO LRFD.
  • Application of Seismic Design concepts.
  • Ability to perform construction site visits and offer construction support engineering services, to include responding to contractor RFI’s and reviewing shop submittals.
  • Ability to coordinate with CAD technicians to ensure timely and accurate plan preparation.
  • Contribution at some level to proposals for new work, including assistance with developing scope, fee, presentations, interviewing, and relationship building with agencies and clients.
  • Ability to manage and track your time, with some assistance, amidst a multitude of deadlines.
  • Our bridge inspection, load rating, and bridge maintenance and preservation work is growing.  A willingness to learn bridge load rating techniques and associated software may be required.  An opportunity to become an NHI certified bridge inspector as a component of your overall responsibilities may be available in time.
  • Relocation is not required for this position.


  • B.S. Civil Engineering.  M.S. Structural Engineering highly preferred
  • Professional Engineer (P.E.) License (ability to obtain California P.E. within 1 year)
  • 7-12 years of progressive work experience in structural/bridge design


    The salary range for this position is $72,000-$151,000.   This will be dependent on the experience and expertise of the incoming candidate. 

    Workplace Flexibility: Whether you want to work in the office, at home, or in a hybrid model, we accommodate a variety of preferences. We recognize our employees face many factors when it comes to selecting the best work location, and we are passionate about providing options and flexibility.
