About Valley Geotechnical Engineering Services Ltd.

Founded in 1995, Valley Geotechnical is a company that strives to provide the best work possible to its clients. We're a close-knit team made up of technologists, technicians, and engineers. Our team works outside of the standard top-down management style and our combined expertise allows us to support our customers with cost-effective engineering solutions while always maintaining a high level of service.

At Valley Geotechnical we know that our success can be attributed to the fact that our team has the initiative, commitment, and willingness to challenge ourselves and commit to continued learning and mentoring. We like to reward our hardworking team by creating a culture of open communication where everyone can be heard and given the support they need to achieve. We also love to get together as a group and in the times before COVID we would often have social events including team lunches, river rafting, fishing trips, and barbeques. If this sounds like an environment you could succeed within then we want to hear from you.

Currently, Valley Geotechnical has an exciting opportunity available for an experienced and assertive AutoCAD Drafter Civil 3D/Civil Technologist to join our team in Langley, BC on a full-time basis.

As our new AutoCAD Drafter/Civil Technologist, you'll work alongside a diverse team of engineers, designers, drafters, and contractors from conceptual design through to final design and construction.

As our ideal candidate, you'll join us with excellent communication skills in both written and verbal form. Your organization and time management skills along with your assertive nature will ensure your success in this role as you work with many different people in order to meet competing demands and deadlines. You'll also be a team player and have an enjoyment for working outdoors in varying weather conditions.

Above all, you'll have a passion for the work that you do and be eager to learn and build your skillset.
