SUPPORT SERVICES SURVEY

ENGINEERING SERVICES JOB GROUP

Engineering Technician 1
Performs simple and routine tasks under close supervision or from detailed procedural guidelines. Gathers and maintains engineering data such as testing results, drawings, etc.; performs computations by substituting numbers in specified formulas; plots data and draws simple curves and graphs.

Engineering Technician 2
Performs standardized or prescribed assignments involving a sequence of related operations. Con- ducts a variety of standardized tests; may prepare test specimen; sets up and operates standard test equipment; records test data. Extracts engineering data from various prescribed sources; processes the data following well-defined methods; presents the data in prescribed form.

Engineering Technician 3
Performs non-routine assignments of substantial variety and complexity. Receives objectives and technical advice from supervisor or engineer. May be assisted by lower-level Technicians. Compiles and computes a variety of engineering data; may analyze test and design data; develops or prepares schematics, designs, specifications, parts lists; or makes recommendations regarding these items. May conduct tests or experiments requiring selection and adaptation or modifications of equipment or procedures; records data; analyzes data and prepares reports.

Engineering Technician 4
Performs non-routine and complex assignments with responsibility for planning and conducting a complete project of relatively limited scope or a portion of a larger and more-diverse project. Engineer outlines objectives, requirements, and design approaches. Maybe assisted by lower-level Technicians. Reviews and analyzes a variety of engineering data to determine requirements to meet engineering objectives; may calculate design data; prepares layouts, detailed specifications, parts lists, estimates, procedures, etc.

Product Designer 1
Performs entry-level product design, requiring a bachelor’s degree in engineering, industrial design or related discipline. Works under close supervision; receives specific and detailed instruction as to required tasks and results expected. Normally works on modifications and/or revisions to established products. Requires a basic understanding of design theory and ability to both read and prepare drawings (manual and CAD).

Product Designer 2
Intermediate/developmental level where routine design work requires the application of standard techniques, procedures and criterion carrying-out a sequence of related engineering tasks. Technical capabilities are developed that allow for limited exercise of judgment on design details, development, and presentation. Begins to handle more aspects of small to medium projects while developing independence in operation and, therefore, requiring less direct supervision. Assignments include some coordination of tasks with marketing and production. Typically will begin to work at a higher level of moderate complexity.

Staff Product Designer
Independently carries out moderately complex projects from start to finish, and is considered a fully competent designer in all conventional aspects of assigned functional area. Makes decisions regarding material selection, structural requirements, tolerances, aesthetics, and testing. May provide supervision to lower level designers, drafters, and technicians on specific assigned tasks.

Senior Product Designer
Responsible for interpreting, organizing, executing, and coordinating new product design projects and/or revisions to existing products of large scale and complexity. Serves as project liaison to marketing and production to ensure continuity, accuracy, cost-effectiveness and timeliness of project work for release to production. Normally supervises, coordinates and reviews work of a small staff (1 to 5) of designer, drafters and/or technicians.

Product Design Manager
Responsible for the managerial direction and control of a specific functional area within product development. Oversees both the administrative and technical operations of a group of designers, drafters and/or technicians by providing their assignments and performance reviews while ensuring efficient, cost-effective use of staff. Serves as technical advisor within a functional area and provides senior-level input and evaluation to projects. Demonstrates creativity, foresight, and mature engineering judgment when anticipating and solving problems.

Maintenance Manager
Provides daily oversight of all functional and operational activities in facilities maintenance, which includes troubleshooting, repairs, and supervision of all subordinate maintenance staff. Assigns work to maintenance staff and vendors (for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and/or HVAC repairs). Requires an operational knowledge of all equipment and machinery within the facility. Reviews and implements all mechanical specifications and manuals for current operations.

Maintenance Specialist
Performs daily maintenance tasks needed to ensure facilities and equipment are operational. Responsible for first-level repairs and general maintenance tasks. May have a technical specialty; however, this level will perform broad, general maintenance jobs and/or assist technical specialists on complex tasks.

Chain/Rod Technician
Stakes out and elevates survey points. Performs maintenance of certain equipment and maintains supplies for survey crew.

Instrument Technician
Maintains and operates all instruments and measuring devices needed to complete different types of surveying assignments. Has ability to operate the following equipment: transit, level, the odolites, hp distance meter, ranger, chain, electrotope, and tellurometer.

Party Chief
Organizes and maintains efficiency of field survey crew in completing specific jobs. Accurately calculates and records field data that are clear and understandable. Reviews job specifications and determines the best course for completing the fieldwork in an efficient and safe manner. (Is non-registered)

Land Surveyor
Responsible for initiating and completing both the preliminary and final land surveys and ensuring that accuracy of surveys reflects the integrity of design and meets all requirements. Is required to be a Registered Land Surveyor with a minimum of 5 years of broad survey experience and some technical-school training. May supervise the activities of survey crews and provide training to staff.
