Hello, future! Here we come. CH2M is now Jacobs. Today is the day when everything about our industry changes.

As a Geotechnical Engineer, you will work as part of a team of geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists, providing support and advice to the wider Jacobs business and clients as well as acting as team leader on some of your own projects.
