Join Our Team: Mechanical HVAC Engineer

Mar 13, 2020DMA Engineering

Are you passionate about energy efficiency and seeking to make a difference in the built environment? At DMA Engineering, we are committed to environmental stewardship by providing creative and efficient solutions for residential and commercial buildings. We are a small firm with plans to grow in our three verticals of Energy Modeling, Design and Commissioning. Our projects vary from custom homes, new building net-zero design and commercial building retro-commissioning, to industrial heating & cooling for occupant comfort and processes. We utilize many different designs and design techniques.

While we are fast-paced and work hard to ensure we deliver outstanding results for our clients, we also value our time to play in the outdoors and have structured our working hours and location to accommodate an active lifestyle. Work-life harmony is important, and we will work with you to achieve a plan that is mutually beneficial. Our office is set up to be physical or virtual, so if you want to ski in the morning and work late, not a problem; want to coach little league and need to leave early, not a problem; want to speed more than two weeks abroad, not a problem. Quality and reproducible work are our objectives.

If this sounds like an environment you would thrive in, we have an exciting opportunity for a Mechanical HVAC Engineer to join our team.
