Nestled on the southern coastal mountain slopes overlooking the lush Fraser River Valley, Mission is a rapidly growing and dynamic community of approximately 41,000 residents, 20 kilometers north of the US border and 70 kilometers east of Vancouver.

Job Description
The City of Mission is looking for a Senior Engineer to oversee the planning and implementation of traffic and transportation programs, transportation planning and design projects and initiatives of the City.  

In this role you will supervise and provide technical leadership to a team of transportation technologists ensuring the overall quality of work and achievement of business goals and objectives in the transportation area.

You will need your excellent interpersonal skills and communication skills as you represent the City to both internal and external stakeholders.  Your business sense and financial acumen will assist you in developing and monitoring budgets, contracts and business plans. Your knowledge of legislation and regulatory regimes will help you ensure the City’s compliance to these regulations.

As the ideal candidate, you will have a bachelor degree in civil engineering (or a related discipline) supplemented by education in transportation engineering specifically in the areas of traffic and transportation design, construction and operation of transportation systems and project management.
