KPFF was founded in Seattle in 1960 and is a collaborative and creative team of civil engineers, structural engineers, and surveyors that thrive on designing innovative solutions for projects of all scales. We are leaders in sustainable design, providing our clients with visionary, environmentally sensitive and technically advanced services. Our company is large (1,200+ employees in 20 offices), but nimble and operates day-to-day with the flexibility of a small firm. We have a great group of collaborative and dedicated engineers in a family-friendly, business casual environment.
The Portland Civil + Survey office consists of 97 employees, including 36 PE’s and 3 PLS’s with satellite offices in Eugene, OR and Washington, DC. Our core civil practice focuses on site development, public utility and roadway infrastructure, parks and trails, and innovative stormwater management. Our survey team focuses on boundary staking, topo surveying, construction layout, drone missions, and building inspections. We work on many different and exciting design projects including education and healthcare facilities, national parks, cultural centers, zoos and museums as well as government and international facilities. With projects around the globe, KPFF Portland offers the opportunity to travel and explore unique engineering and surveying opportunities.
KPFF Portland is more than just the work we do, we are the relationships we build, both with our clients and with our co-workers. To foster those relationships and build up our employees, KPFF offers a number of growth opportunities and social events. With monthly lunchtime learning opportunities, outside speakers, and structured growth programs, employees are constantly offered the opportunity to grow and expand their knowledge. We like to have fun too – join our summer co-ed softball team, Hood-to-Coast relay race team, annual ALA Stair Climb team, or participate in our annual golf tournament and get involved in numerous volunteer opportunities benefiting our community. We also have annual holiday parties and regular social happy hours to get to know each other.
We are passionate about developing great engineers and surveyors! We will provide a supportive and positive environment to start your engineering or surveying career.
