 This is a continuous posting. This position will remain posted until filled and applications will be reviewed in the order received. For earliest consideration, apply now. A list of eligible candidates may be established to fill current and future vacancies. 

The County of Riverside Flood Control and Water Conservation District has multiple opportunities for a Junior Engineer/Assistant Engineer/Assistant Civil Engineer located in Riverside. The incumbent(s) will perform varied and difficult flood control engineering work in one or more of the District’s engineering divisions, which include the planning, design, construction, and operation and maintenance of Stormwater Management Facilities. The selected candidate will be tasked with assisting in the design and planning of public works improvement projects, designing simple hydraulic structures, performing hydrologic flow studies of flood control facilities, preparing hydro-logic studies on various structures, hydraulic analysis, plans, profiles, cross-sections, quantity estimates, and horizontal and vertical curve alignment computations.  



The Department is seeking candidates who possess the following:

  • Experience working with relevant programs or software, such as HEC-RAS, HEC-HMS, WSPG, Micro Station, Inroads, AutoCAD, CivilD, Flo-2D, or other Hydraulic, Hydrologic, Structural design software. 

  • Experience or coursework (such as hydrology, hydraulics, etc.) related to

    flood control engineering work.
  • Internship experience, preferably in a related area.

  • EIT License

  • Leadership skills demonstrated through membership to engineering boards, societies, or clubs.

The Junior Engineer and Assistant Engineer are part of the Entry-Level Engineering Series. The Junior Engineer is a natural progression underfill for Assistant Engineer. Incumbents are eligible to promote to next level in the series without a competitive recruitment upon successful completion of their probationary period, a satisfactory performance evaluation, acquisition of the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to progress, and meeting any additional qualification requirements. This non-competitive growth promotion occurs at the department’s initiation. Incumbents may also be eligible to promote to the Assistant Civil Engineer upon acquisition of the required licensure. The probationary period for these positions is one year.



The level at which the position will be filled is at the Department's discretion and is contingent on the candidate's experience and qualifications.
