Geotechnical Engineer, Denmark (30985)
Application deadline: 11/08/2019 - Denmark - Location: Lyngby/København - Bridge, Tunnel and Marine

Do you aspire to be working with a leading group of engineering specialists holding a key position in the Marine and Geotechnical sector? If your answer is yes, COWI is here with an opportunity to join our team of more than 30 geotechnical engineers based out of Denmark.

COWI is a leading consultant group within engineering, economics and environmental science with 6,600 employees in offices across the world. Since the 1930's, COWI has pushed the boundaries of bridge, tunnel and marine design through our involvement in some of the world's largest, most iconic and complex projects.

Our civil, structural and geotechnical engineering specialists are internationally renowned for their work. In projects we always aim to incorporate innovative and sustainable solutions and push the boundaries of what is technically possible, such as designing the world’s deepest and longest subsea tunnel, engineering the world's longest suspension bridges in highly seismic regions, and creating resiliency by preparing our waterfronts and communities for ongoing climate change.

Owing to increased workload and development within our Marine and Geotechnical sector, we now seek to recruit an engineer to join our team of more than 30 geotechnical engineers at our head office in Lyngby and get an opportunity to work on challenging and complex projects, gaining hands on experience in both technical and commercial aspects.

COWI's group of geotechnical engineers around the world counts more than 200 staff supporting infrastructure projects all over the world.

As a Geotechnical Engineer, you will be based at our office in Lyngby and will be responsible for our minor Danish geotechnical projects, where you will act as a point of contact for a number of internal and external clients, who will need geotechnical support on everything from planning of geotechnical investigation campaigns and supervision jobs to design tasks and reporting. Some of the requests you will take care of yourself, others you will hand over to colleagues. However, common for all requests is that they will be anchored with you.

We are looking for a candidate having experience with supervision and design of geotechnical structures, such as direct foundations, slopes and retaining walls. Professionally you should have high standards for the design and consultancy you provide with the ability to have many balls in the air.

Additionally, your responsibilities would include but not limited to:-

  • Coordination of drilling and laboratory campaigns
  • Coordination of supervision jobs
  • Geotechnical supervision
  • Preparation of data reports, interpretation reports and desk studies
  • Interpreting geotechnical site and laboratory tests
  • Completing small and medium design tasks
  • Providing technical input to geotechnical tasks like earthworks, direct foundations, pile foundations, slopes, groundwater control, retaining structures, settlements and similar.

We are looking for a candidate holding a B.Sc. or M.Sc. degree in geotechnical engineering with at least 3 years of relevant post-graduation experience within geotechnical engineering.

This position accordingly requires a candidate who has experience with geotechnical supervision and holds strong theoretical and practical knowledge of geotechnical design in the fields of foundation and retaining structures. In addition, you should have a good insight in construction methods as well as contractor’s capabilities and restrictions.

Furthermore, you can recognize yourself in the following statements:

  • You have a structured work approach and are able to develop practical solutions
  • You are able to handle customer relations and participate in technical meeting
  • You are outgoing and have good communication skills.
  • You are proficient in Danish language, both written and verbal.
  • You are self-motivated, open and engaged.
  • You thrive in a busy and challenging environment.

At COWI, we offer exciting careers and emphasise personal development, accountability and independence in everything we do.

We maintain a great social environment and provide many opportunities to influence your own development through targeted training, coaching and knowledge sharing
