NV5's Philadelphia office includes a diverse and talented team of civil engineers, landscape architects, urban designers, and planners, and we have a unique studio environment that allows for frequent collaboration between disciplines. Our employees are passionate about improving the quality of life for communities through planning and design. Only qualified candidates with a strong interest and enthusiasm for collaborative design within the public realm will be considered.


Our Green Infrastructure and Resiliency Team is growing! This position offers a terrific opportunity for career growth, client interaction, and working with a progressive team of professionals who continually seek to improve public spaces with the most current best practices.

  • Collaboration with landscape architects, transportation engineers, and other technical experts in surveying, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, and environmental sciences.
  • The position will require coordination with internal project team members within the Philadelphia office and possibly across several regional NV5 offices, as well as subconsultants, public agencies, clients, participation in project meetings, and assisting other teams in the office as needed.
  • The ideal candidate would possess the skills and desire to lead business development, including professional networking, meeting with potential clients, and proposal writing, and generally enjoy helping us continue growing a team alongside other dynamic leaders passionate about improving our communities through planning and design.


  • P.E. License
  • BS or MS in Civil Engineering
  • At least 8 years with relevant design experience
  • Project management experience
  • Proficient in the necessary software and modeling programs
