Overview

RES is accepting applications for a Surveying Technician in our Warrenton, VA or Richmond VA offices.

 

The mission: to provide survey support to all RES operations in the region.

What your day-to-day might look like?

90% of your time, you will be in the field, collecting data and surveying, through all the stages of the project development. The data you’d be collecting is related to topography, site features, property boundaries, construction stakeout and post construction as-builts.

Note that our projects are scattered around the Mid-Atlantic region, mostly within VA and MD, so you’d be travelling throughout these regions. Also, we perform our work rain or shine, so be ready to work in all kinds of challenging and rugged field conditions and in all types of weather. You will also be carrying some equipment of at least 50 pounds on the back and walk up to 4 miles a day. You will also need a valid driver license to get to the job sites.

 

10% of your time, you will be transferring data, communicating with Survey, Design, and Construction Leads. You may need to provide sketches or write brief reports regarding your work. So excellent written and verbal communication skills are required.
