Environmental Engineer/Scientist

Environmental Advisors and Engineers, Inc. (EAE) is seeking part-time and full-time mid to senior level environmental engineer or scientist with extensive commercial property environmental assessment and investigation experience combined with an interest in taking on more responsibility and diversifying his/her/their skillset. This position offers a diverse opportunity with a rapidly growing small business focused on high-quality technical services and excellent client care. EAE is looking for enthusiastic candidates who are ready to be challenged and help us grow, lead, and manage our business.

The environmental staff member will work closely with other professional staff to assist clients in developing environmental policies, providing environmental consulting, and conducting due diligence associated with property transactions nationwide. Although we perform Phase I and II ESAs, our preferred role is supporting clients in developing environmental policies and procedures and providing environmental risk management consulting that will protect them from potential liability. EAE offers the opportunity for future leadership and management roles and participation in engineering design and construction oversight of water and wastewater systems, facility assessments, and construction monitoring project work that EAE performs on a national basis.

Experience in environmental consulting, performing and reviewing Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) and in-depth knowledge of associated regulations and guidance documents are required. A professional civil or environmental engineering license is preferred.

EAE is a small, woman-owned, disadvantaged business enterprise (WBE/DBE) headquartered in the Kansas City metro area that was founded by two principals in 1998. Since our beginning, EAE has emphasized an employee-first environment with home offices, flexible work schedules, and competitive benefits. Our multidisciplinary team includes professional licensed engineers, professional licensed architects, construction specialists, environmental scientists, engineering data management and administrative support personnel. The diversity of services we offer, our expertise, and the high quality that has become the trademark of our firm are the reason our clients come back to us again and again. We take great pride in improving quality of life in the communities where we live and serve.

If you are a self-starter who enjoys working from home on a variety of project types, having an impact on the future direction of the company, having the opportunity to work both in office and field settings, and interacting with a group of dedicated and enthusiastic co-workers with a passion for excellence and the environment, this may be the job for you. We want your talent to help us make a difference in our community.
