We are proud to have been named a Morning Call Top Work Place numerous times, Corporate Citizen of the Year (by the Lehigh Valley Business Journal) and recipient of the Societas Award for Responsible Corporate Conduct (for Ethics).

Our associates provide civil, structural, municipal, environmental, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering, surveying, landscape architecture, code enforcement, plan review, construction management, construction inspections and material testing, and grant writing services to a diverse client base.

But, enough about us. We want to hear from YOU, if you are a Professional Engineer or Licensed Architect with approximately eight or more years of experience in building envelope engineering who enjoys a variety of field and office assignments. For this position, a background in building envelope design is an essential prerequisite along with a technical knowledge of waterproofing, curtain walls, window systems, and cladding and roofing systems. HAAG certification and building envelope certifications are preferred.

Our Forensic Engineering Department focuses on the investigation of buildings and structures that are failing or aging. The primary areas of competence and responsibility will be field work, such as assessments of buildings (performing detailed inspections, taking notes and photographs); preparing written reports; and preparing designs and drawings for repairs.

The following skills would also be helpful: litigation experience; experience with structural analysis software; probable costing and/or reserve studies; and familiarity with AutoCAD/Revit.

This position will require you to work independently and as part of a team, so we need very good communicators who are able to multi-task and work well with others.

Isett offers a great potential for personal and professional growth. Our comprehensive benefits package includes medical, dental, vision, life and disability insurances, 401k, Employee Stock Ownership Plan, vacation/holiday/sick pay, supplemental insurances, and flexible working schedules in a professional, yet relaxed environment.
