Why OWN?

A people-centric culture powered by equitable employee ownership. A company built by its people, for its people. It’s more than words on a page. It’s our way of life. So much so that we made it our name.

We are OWN. Engineering beyond.

See Yourself at OWN.

Civil and Structural Engineers. Land Surveyors. Technicians. Inspectors and Geologists. We got those.

Thinkers. Strategists. Wood-workers. Gardeners. Musicians. Dreamers. Yeah, we got those, too.

A culture where professional experience is super charged by personal passions, empowerment, teamwork, and a fierce belief that when our clients win, we all win. If this sounds like you, we want to talk.

Calling All Engipreneurs.

If you’ve got the engineering chops and an entrepreneurial spirit, we’ve been looking for you. At OWN, your career is in your hands, where you can paint a blue sky full of possibilities while taking a step toward building your future, and the future of the company.

The OWN Difference

Not all employee ownership is created equal; ours is.

“At OWN, you have the ability to advance your career as far as you want. The sky’s the limit. You can design anything you want here and you’ll be surrounded by the best type of people in the industry. People who care about the work they do, want to provide world class engineering and have fun doing it.”

Ownership is more than a slice of the pie at OWN – it’s the whole thing. Our core belief is that owners do it better and that permeates everything we do. When you want something done, call the owner. Have a problem? Call the owner. At OWN, we just happen to have a couple hundred of them.

When you join us, you can find your own way through:

Giving of time, treasures, and talents to fulfill personal passions and show up in your community.
Our employees are given full reign and the trust to make decisions in the best interest of their clients and teams.
The freedom to be a professional. The freedom to be a person.
Our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is owned 100% by employees – equitably, a fact most employee-owned firms can’t claim.
Having fun
Laughing, jokes, high fives, celebrations – we take our work seriously but not ourselves.
A sense of belonging, learning from those around you, and feeling like you’re on the winning team.

Who are YOU?

It all starts with you. You aren’t a number in a machine. You have a vision and a value and together, we can build a great future that’s centered around your growth and potential.
