Senior Hydrogeologist

We are looking for a Senior Hydrogeologist to join our team in our London office.

This is an incredible opportunity for someone looking for an opportunity to advance their career and collaborate on multidisciplinary teams.

Why do others who work in this position like the role?

Our hydrogeologists enjoy collaborating, not only with experts in their field, but also with engineering professionals on complex projects. Our clients have observed that our team strives to be heavily involved with all aspects of projects to ensure we can provide our clients with quality performance, excellent customer service and diverse expertise.

“The projects I work on are unique and challenging. I’m always learning new things and applying my skills in each different project.”

What will be the best part of your day?

Working side by side with some of the best co-workers, collaborating on projects big and small. We like working together and we support each other in meeting deadlines, finding innovative solutions and answering questions.

What types of projects will you be working on?

As a multi-disciplinary firm, the work you will be doing will be varied. MTE’s client base includes various industries in both the private and public sectors, such as developers, municipalities, contractors and aggregate suppliers. One day you may be working on a Hydrogeology Study for a subdivision development in London. And on another day you’ll be collaborating with our geotechnical engineering team on a study to support a high-rise building in Toronto.

Who do we work for?

Working with the best clients and consulting teams means we also get to work on the best projects! Our London office has long-term relationships with many developers, stakeholders and contractors. MTE also has a solid reputation in the civil, structural and environmental engineering fields, which leads to many opportunities to collaborate with new clients and build new relationships.

    • McMaster University Campus Master Plan

    • Hamilton Road Residential Subdivision, Dorchester

Where will I be working?

Our office is in downtown London, where you’ll have plenty of options for lunch and have the opportunity to enjoy the events and excitement of the area.

MTE’s London office opened in 2016, and has quickly grown to over 85 people since then. You will work next to civil, structural, environmental and geotechnical engineering professionals, as well as a team of surveyors. With so many different professionals working in the same office, collaboration is customary!

The office is also social and community-minded. They enjoy working together and have a history of supporting organizations such as Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario, Green Economy London and the London Food Bank.

Who will I be working with?

You will be a valued member of the London environmental team, which is comprised of over 15 professionals, including two hydrogeologists, five environmental engineering professionals, and 10 ecology and natural environment professionals.

You will also have access to the expertise of over 80 hydrogeological, and environmental and geotechnical engineering professionals, located in MTE’s other offices. This group includes professionals who have been working in the industry for over 35 years, and are just a call away whenever you need advice or input on a project, client or process.

We also have a team of 10 Professional Hydrogeologists. They will help you as you navigate this role, advocating for your success and your projects. They regularly collaborate on management and technical to ensure overall success of the project.
