You’re a civil engineering grad looking for your perfect entry-level role.
You want an exciting, hands-on job in the dynamic telecommunications industry. You’re driven to prove yourself and want to put your knowledge to the test in the field.
You’re also a thrill-seeker – heights don’t scare you, and neither does working outdoors in the elements.
Join us, and soar to the top of your engineering career at Teletek Structures! We’re an engineering firm that builds and maintains the telecommunications infrastructure that supports major networks like Bell, Rogers and Telus.
We’re growing, and looking for entry-level engineers to join our close-knit team - could this be you?
Engineer (Entry Level)
As our new entry level engineer, you will work as part of an experienced field inspection team to complete inspections on cell tower structures. You’ll travel to different sites daily, mainly across Ontario, and sometimes to western Canada.
You’ll be responsible for two types of inspections: audit inspections and post inspections. You’ll complete inspections from the ground, and from the towers themselves (by climbing up between 100 to 1000 feet). For audits, you’ll perform structural analysis, and for post inspections, you’ll ensure everything is installed per engineering drawings.
Then, you’ll take your findings to assemble inspection reports. You’ll use your AutoCAD skills to create basic CAD drawings to illustrate your measured findings.
Your civil engineering education has prepared you for this job, but you’re the right person for this role if:
You’re comfortable working at heights: a big part of your job involves tethered climbing, from 100 feet to maximum of 1000 feet. Heights don’t scare you – you’re an adrenaline junkie who will love the daily adventure.
You enjoy working outdoors: you’ll be working outside, in all types of weather conditions. You’ll enjoy the fresh air, and not being stuck in an office. Ideally, you’ve had some experience working outdoors before.
You’re safety-conscious: working safely matters to you. You’ll take care to follow proper health and safety procedures to ensure your safety.
You’re ambitious: this is an entry-level role where you’ll put in the work to gain as much knowledge as you can about our industry and structures. As you gain experience, you’ll progress to a more senior role. This excites you, because you want to grow your career with us.

In addition to your 2 weeks’ vacation, you’ll receive 5 paid sick days, the week off between Christmas and New Year’s, benefits, and you’ll have potential to earn profit sharing bonuses.
You’re made for this role if you have the following qualifications:
A bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from an accredited university
Experience working with AutoCAD, professionally or academically
Valid driver’s license for travel to field inspection sites
Experience working with Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook) at an intermediate level
Desire and ability to obtain working at heights certificate and/or completion of a working at heights certification
And you’ll be even better prepared if you have the following:
Experience in the engineering or construction industry
