Engineer II / III / Senior Civil Engineer

City of American Canyon

The position will be responsible for Development Engineering.  The selected candidate will work with developers and their engineers reviewing proposed development plans, issuing “will-serve” letters, determining development conditions and creating development agreements on all development projects within the City.  The engineer will insure that public improvements meet all City standards.  Experience either as a municipal development engineer or as a consultant working on development projects is desirable.  The position will be filled at one of the following levels:
Engineer II
A journey level class in the professional engineering series not requiring registration. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the lower class of Engineer I, or if filled from the outside, require prior professional level experience and possession of an Engineer-in-Training Certificate. Incumbents in this class work under general direction and perform moderately   difficult professional engineering work in engineering. Engineer IIs are normally considered to be the a continuing training status and as assigned responsibilities and breadth of knowledge increase with experience, and registration is received, may reasonably expect to be promoted to the next higher class of Engineer II.
Engineer III
An advance journey level class in the engineering series requiring registration. Positions in the class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the lower class of Engineer II, or, when filled from the out-side require prior advanced professional engineering work experience. A Engineer III works under general super-vision and is expected to complete complex engineering assignments requiring the use of judgement and initiative in developing solutions to problems, interpreting general policies, and determining work assignments.  Work in this class is distinguished from that of the Engineer II class by the greater complexity of the assignments received and by the greater independence with which an incumbent is expected to operate.
