Project Engineer

Project engineers and managers work behind the scenes to ensure each project comes together as it should. They manage the project schedule, resources, and spending to keep the job on schedule and budget. While they often visit the field, they spend much time in their pickup trucks and office taking care of permits, billings, and other crucial documents to allow all operators, laborers, and others in the field to build the job as needed.
