Job Posting: FIGG Bridge Engineers, Inc.

Bridges designed by FIGG are purposeful works of art, functional sculptures within the landscape, that are created through a careful analysis of the site, contextual and environmental sensitivity, and a regional approach that encompasses a community’s particular needs, as well as the realities of funding and maintenance. FIGG’s exclusive focus on bridge design and construction engineering inspection enables us to provide state of the art technology,
innovative aesthetics and materials, and a unique capacity to partner for research. By capturing the powers of imagination, function, and technology, we build bridges that improve the nation’s infrastructure, while enhancing the appearance of communities across America and the quality of life for the people who live in them.

Our Dallas, TX Office is seeking a Bridge Designer to support the design of its signature bridge projects. A successful candidate will have knowledge of LRFD bridge design criteria and concrete design practices. In this role you will perform structural analyses and develop design calculations using AASHTO and other design codes for different bridge structural systems. Additionally, a successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in Construction Engineering and Inspections services on some of the most significant bridge projects in the United States of America. Typical projects will include signature segmental concrete bridges and cable stayed bridges.
