Job Description

Senior Engineer


Santa Rosa, CA

ZFA Structural Engineers is a mid-sized structural engineering firm founded in 1974 with five offices throughout Northern California, including Santa Rosa, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Sacramento, and Napa. We pride ourselves on our geographic, employee, and project type diversity, as well as our technical expertise and high level of client service.

The office sizes and connectivity are specifically designed to provide both the resources and project experience opportunities of a large firm, but with the nimbleness and mentoring of a smaller firm.

We have continued to grow—deliberately and sustainably—over the last decade and now employ a staff of nearly 85 people. We work hard to provide a positive and inclusive work environment that values all contributions, promotes professional development and growth, and acknowledges that ZFA is only one part of the lives of our employees. We value dedicated work, but also wish to provide flexibility and encourage personal growth to empower the realization of our employees as well-rounded people and well-rounded engineers. We are fully owned by 25 employee-owners and provide a transparent and supportive path to leadership within our firm.

Our Santa Rosa office, founded in 1974, is over 30 strong and is currently searching for a Senior Engineer who can help us continue to expand within Northern California’s robust construction market spanning from San Luis Obispo to Lake Tahoe to the Oregon border and all that lies between including urban Bay Area sites. We are also licensed and deliver projects in 20 other states primarily but not limited to the Western United States.

The ideal candidate will enjoy an inclusive social office culture, have a strong desire to collaborate with peers and clients, and a choice of project types. The Santa Rosa office, like all ZFA’s offices, delivers a wide variety of project types, including education, public safety and civic, downtown redevelopment, historic rehabilitation, custom residential, hospitality, winery, industrial/energy, and healthcare projects. With companywide practices for communication, knowledge sharing, and operational procedures and standards, the Santa Rosa office is ingrained within a robust company that maintains the individual feel of a smaller firm.

ZFA is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity and are committed to creating an environment for all employees free of discrimination and harassment. ZFA is dedicated to growth and excellence in engineering with opportunities for motivated individuals. We offer:

  • A dynamic and challenging work environment with a strong emphasis on collaborative office culture
