Job Description

The National Security Agency (NSA) currently has opportunities for highly motivated Civil Engineers who specialize in Stormwater, Traffic, or Structural engineering. Our Civil Engineers solve complex mission driven facilities issues and are responsible for engineering services in the planning, design, construction, sustainment, and decommissioning life cycle of NSA facilities worldwide as part of a multi-discipline team. As a Civil Engineer at NSA, responsibilities may include: - Developing civil designs, construction plans and specifications, including design analysis, calculations, and cost estimates - Conducting field investigations or studies and writing reports - Performing Design Quality Control of in-house and A-E civil designs - Conducting inspections of projects under construction, reviewing construction submittals, answering Contractor's RFIs, and validating as-constructed drawings - Performing routine and periodic inspections of facilities and making recommendations - Attending and leading project meetings while projects are in the design phase - Coordinating among Customer, Architect, other design disciplines, O&M, and other stakeholders - Preparing Architecture-Engineer(A-E) or Design-Build statements of works, performance requirements, and cost estimates - Managing and leading A-E contractors hired to perform engineering services - Responding to operating facilities emergences, when engineering support is needed NOTE: A copy of your unofficial transcript and resume is highly encouraged to be submitted with your application and may expedite processing.

As an Engineering and Physical Science professional, you will use your skills to create the systems and tools that will be used to enhance the operation of intelligence. You will advise, administer and perform scientific projects, such as planning, designing, and constructing specialized equipment, and ensuring adherence to sound engineering and scientific standards and principles. The NSA offers multiple areas of focus for facilities engineers, including computer, architectural, electrical, mechanical, and structural. In addition, we are seeking skills that include computer design, microelectronics, radio frequency design, and systems engineering. Apply your science and engineering skills to protect the nation.

The qualifications listed are the minimum acceptable to be considered for the position. Degree must be in Civil Engineering. If program is not ABET-EAC accredited, it must include specified coursework. A degree in Engineering Technology will also be considered if it includes specified coursework. Specified coursework includes courses in differential and integral calculus and 5 of the following 18 areas: (a) statics or dynamics, (b) strength of materials/stress-strain relationships, (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics, (d) thermodynamics, (e) electromagnetic fields, (f) nature and properties of materials/relating particle and aggregate structure to properties, (g) solid state electronics, (h) microprocessor applications, (i), computer systems, (j) signal processing, (k) digital design, (l) systems and control theory, (m) circuits or generalized circuits, (n) communication systems, (o) power systems, (p) computer networks, (q) software development, (r) Any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, or soil mechanics.

FULL PERFORMANCE With a degree in Civil Engineering, entry is a Bachelor's degree plus 3 years of relevant experience, or a Master's degree plus 1 year of relevant experience, or a Doctoral degree and no experience. Relevant experience must be working in a civil engineering capacity (e.g., storm water management, hydraulics, site development, transportation, geotechnical surveying, or structures), using Civil Engineering Design software and Auto CAD, and reading blue prints. Experience in project management, analyzing and troubleshooting civil engineering systems, sediment and erosion control measures and plans, and Engineering in Training (EIT) certification is preferred. SENIOR Entry is with a Bachelor's degree plus 6 years of relevant experience, or a Master's degree plus 4 years of relevant experience, or a Doctoral degree plus 2 years of relevant experience. Relevant experience must be working in a civil engineering capacity (e.g., storm water management, hydraulics, site development, transportation, geotechnical surveying, or structures), using Civil Engineering Design software and Auto CAD, and reading blue prints. Experience in project management, analyzing and troubleshooting civil engineering systems, sediment and erosion control measures and plans, and Engineering in Training (EIT) certification is preferred.

The candidate should demonstrate the following general skills: - Problem Solving - Interpersonal Skills - Partnering - Customer Service - Accountability - Continual Learning - Resilience - Effective Communication Knowledge and skill in one or more of the three civil engineering specialties (Stormwater, Traffic, or Structural engineering) is preferred. Each are described below: 1) Stormwater Engineer Civil Engineers with storm water expertise ensure NSA facilities comply with State storm water requirements and best practices. Civil engineers with storm water expertise commonly design unique or new storm water features and integrate storm water features into facilities projects. Civil Engineers with underground utility experience are also needed. Knowledge and experience in the following areas are desired: - Technical software packages (AutoCAD, Flowmaster, Civil 3D) - Maryland Department of the Environment Permitting - Storm water management - Sediment and Erosion Control measures and plans - Site Development and Utility Design - Technical standards (MDE, UFC, AWWA) 2) Traffic Engineer Civil Engineers with Traffic/Transportation expertise study the complex NSA campuses worldwide and design solutions to improve the NSA campuses for better flow of traffic and parking. The traffic focused civil engineers will be expected to work with master planners and project managers to plan and implement solutions. Knowledge and experience in the following areas are desired: - Technical software packages (e.g. AutoCAD, AutoTurn, Synchro) - Site development/transportation planning systems - Vehicle and pedestrian circulation, including access control points - Traffic signals and signage - Parking - Pavement design - Technical standards (e.g. UFC, AASHTO, MDOT) 3) Structural Engineer Civil Engineers with structural expertise ensure NSA facilities comply with building/structural code requirements and best practices. Civil engineers with structural focus are familiar with new building design, improvements to existing structures, building infrastructure support systems, material selection, construction inspection, loading analysis, and structural integrity of facilities. Knowledge and experience in the following areas are desired: - Technical software packages (e.g. AutoCAD, SAP 2000, ETABS, STAAD) - Structural analysis and design - Anti-Terrorism / Force Protection - Building renovation and restoration design - Foundation Analysis and Design - Technical Standards (e.g. UFC, IBC, ASCE, ACI, AISC, AISI, AWC)
