If so, Gomez and Sullivan Engineers would like to hear from you. We are a small, growing water resources consulting firm with a national reputation for excellence. We are seeking motivated individuals committed to continuing this tradition. Our company has an immediate opening for a Civil/Water Resources Engineer with experience in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling for watershed, river, reservoir, and dam studies at our Utica, NY office.

Utica offers reasonable costs of living, affordable housing (approximately $150K for a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home), a variety of restaurants and shops, excellent schools and colleges, many cultural events, as well as great outdoor recreational opportunities nearby in the Adirondacks, Finger Lakes, Catskills, and beyond. In addition to local recreation, several PGA golf courses as well as prominent downhill ski areas are located within a two-hour drive from Utica.
