- Review existing project data and requirements
- Prepare budgets, schedules, and reports needed to achieve project goals
- Conduct/supervise geologic investigations to characterize and evaluate geologic/geotechnical conditions, and to identify geologic factors that could impact the design, construction, and/or long-term performance of engineered structures
- Perform client coordination and attend client meetings
- Manage geosciences/engineering personnel to accomplish tasks
- Manage existing clients, develop new clients, and identify new business opportunities
- Overtime may be necessary as workload dictates. This may include weekdays, weekends and/or holiday time
