Knowledge of the geology of northeastern PA and surrounding areas is important. Experience with dam inspections, monitoring, rehab, and permitting is also desired. Past soils testing laboratory, construction inspection, and/or field testing experience (including nuclear density gauge, ACI certification, or GRI/GSI geosynthetics installation) preferred.
Qualified candidates must demonstrate proficient English verbal and written communication skills, excellent computer skills, strong work ethic, adaptability, and teamwork skills. The successful candidate will possess a positive attitude, an “ownership mentality”, an ability to establish client relationships, define client needs, develop winning strategies, prepare proposals and generate sales in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, as well as promote other ARM Group Inc. and GSET services.
