Position Overview

Join a recognized leader in Construction!  If stability and career growth are important to you apply today!  We had a record year in 2021, and our business in Arizona and Nevada is growing.  We have an even bigger backlog of work going into 2022.  Our mission is to make a difference and we offer opportunities for you to make one too through our construction operations. Whether we’re boring tunnels through mountains, turning rivers into energy or building bridges that connect communities, we depend on our passionate, skilled, and safety-obsessed construction professionals to get it done right. You bring your big ideas, commitment to top quality, and an unwavering work ethic. In return, we offer huge career and travel opportunities and the satisfaction of building the next big thing from the ground up.

We are adding Construction Field Engineers to our team in our Southwest district.  If you have a passion for mentoring others, as a Field Engineer II, you will be the primary and lead engineer on the Project, and report directly to the Project Manager.  This means more visibility and growth for your career and development to move up into a Superintendent role or into project engineering/project management.   As a Field Engineer II, you will be expected to be a job-site leader in health and safety, ensuring quality of reporting and workmanship, and that all engineering work is completed in a professional and ethical manner. Your main functions will include contract administration, project planning and scheduling, and project reporting, and you will play an advisory role to Project Management for contractual, legal, and other project issues.



District Overview

Kiewit Southwest District specializes in heavy civil, transportation, water/wastewater and power projects, and we typically self-perform most of the work.  We self-perform work such as mass grading, drainage, PCCP paving, utilities and more. We are looking for people committed to the construction industry with safety, quality, costs and schedule in mind. This district includes projects in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and New Mexico.  On our team, you’ll have the opportunity to see more, touch more, and do more than you ever imagined. Working hard will not only bring you satisfaction from a job well done, but it will help propel your career forward faster than you might expect. We will train you, develop your skills, and allow you to take on projects that impact millions across North America. With top-notch health benefits, a wealth-building 401k plan, and unbeatable growth opportunities, by joining Kiewit, you’re ensuring a lifetime of success.
