CEI Engineering Associates in Dallas, TX is looking to hire a full-time Project Engineer to use technical expertise to plan, design, and produce quality construction documents. Are you looking to grow your career as an engineering intern (EI), engineer-in-training (EIT), or professional engineer (PE)? Do you have excellent skills in AutoCAD? Would you like a job with an experienced civil engineering company that promotes a healthy work-life balance? If so, please read on!

This civil engineering position earns competitive compensation. We provide excellent benefits and perks, including comprehensive health offerings, a 401(k) with a company match, an employee stock ownership plan, a quarterly incentive bonus program, continuing education opportunities, and a health and wellness reimbursement program. If this sounds like the right civil engineering opportunity for you, apply today!


Established in 1973, we became a leader in civil engineering, land surveying, and landscape architecture by approaching each project with the same objectives: to help our clients streamline their processes, create efficiencies, avoid costly mistakes, and drive revenue to their bottom line. With offices from coast to coast and a dedicated team of more than 100 professionals, we are a diverse, deeply experienced, and inclusive firm ready to help our clients take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way.

We employ hard-working people who want to develop and grow along with our company. We also want to help our employees and their families lead healthy, balanced lives. Therefore, we provide affordable coverage that promotes wellness beyond basic healthcare. By offering competitive pay, excellent benefits, and ongoing training, we foster a supportive environment where our team can excel. Most importantly, we aim to give our employees the opportunity to do what they do best every single day.


As a Project Engineer, you are essential to our ability to provide complete and accurate construction documents to our clients. Each day, you arrive at work ready to tackle a variety of civil engineering projects. Drawing on data from reports, maps, aerial photographs, soil composition tests, and more, you develop a clear understanding of the scope of the project, which you then use to create plans. Using AutoCAD as your primary tool, you develop project designs that drafters then use to create drawings. Working with the drafters gives you the chance to serve as a mentor for our less experienced team members, and you enjoy helping others increase their skills in AutoCAD as well as learn and grow in their careers.

As part of your responsibilities, you work with utility companies, governmental entities, and sub-consultants to coordinate everyone's roles in the planning and development of each project. You also monitor the budget and ensure that the labor and expense costs stay within their forecasted range. Preparing reports is another of your important tasks as you ensure transparency and accuracy in our construction schedules, environmental impact studies, legal documentation, and more. From time to time, you meet with clients to discuss changes and resolve their questions or concerns. You know how important our clients' input is at every stage of the process and are happy to ensure their satisfaction. As our projects progress, you take great satisfaction in knowing you play such an important role in their success!

  • EI or EIT
  • Bachelor's degree in civil engineering
  • 2+ years of related experience or training
  • Experience with AutoCAD
  • Strong proficiency with spreadsheet, word processing, and project management software
  • Driver's license, acceptable driving record, and the willingness to occasionally travel overnight

Licensure as a professional engineer (PE) is preferred but not required. Do you have excellent verbal and written communication skills? Are you a team player who relates well with others? Can you prioritize your tasks and manage your time accordingly? Are you attentive to detail? If yes, you might just be perfect for this civil engineering position!


This civil engineering position works a full-time schedule that includes some overnight travel.
