Job Description

Job Purpose: We are looking for Civil Engineers to help support our FEMA client in Puerto Rico in response to the Hurricane Recovery efforts. Due to the nature of this specific FEMA disaster work in Puerto Rico, we are seeking local candidates in Puerto Rico.

Jacobs has a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contract (PA TAC) to provide technical assistance support for FEMA disaster related operations in Puerto Rico.
Our Program Management Team is building a roster of individuals in Puerto Rico, who would be interested in supporting our Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contract (PA TAC).


FEMA uses the PA TAC to obtain architects–engineers, consultants, and other related professional services to assist state and local municipalities in developing grant applications for Federal Public Assistance funding for the repair of their infrastructure damaged by natural or man-made disasters (buildings, power, roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, water treatment facilities, etc.).



In these roles, you may have the following general responsibilities:

• Conduct site assessments, and write damage descriptions, scopes of work to repair/replace damaged public infrastructure, and develop cost estimates for the Federal funding of the projects.
• Write Project Worksheets (PWs) for the purposes of determining project eligibility, scopes of work and estimating costs to repair or replace a facility/structure to restore it to its pre-disaster design.
• Provide technical, cost estimating, and disaster recovery and/or management services while supporting technical professionals.
• Interpret construction work to ensure compliance with contract drawings and specifications as well as FEMA Public Assistance policy and procedure.
• Conduct preliminary damage assessments (PDAs) in the field with Federal, State and local officials.

We are looking for Civil Engineers interested in working on the PA TAC. Please note, qualified candidates for the FEMA Flex positions must be U.S. citizens, able to pass a FBI background check, be able to mobilize within 48 hours of contracts awarded, and open to working 8-12 hours per day, 6-7 days per week in remote, disaster conditions.

  • Bilingual and fluent in English and Spanish, both verbal and written.
  • Must be a U.S. citizen and be able to pass a FBI background check prior to becoming eligible to deploy. This background check process is extremely time sensitive and qualified candidates must be willing to complete within 7 days.

  • Proficient with Microsoft Office product suite.
The ideal candidate will possess the following skills and experience:
