FREMONT - A CITY ON THE MOVE!

Recently ranked second on the “Best Run City in America” list by 24/7 Wall St. and America’s third “Sharpest, Smartest City” by Reader’s Digest, the City of Fremont is a City continuing to move forward! Located in the heart of the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, this strategically urban city prides itself on innovation, green technology, a low crime rate, great schools, a low unemployment rate, and an incredibly diverse population of over 215,000 residents. As a full service City, Fremont employs over 830 regular employees and has an annual operating budget of $149.3 million dollars. Fremont is an employer that values its people, creativity, quality service, integrity, open communication, mutual respect, and diversity.

THE DEPARTMENT

The Public Works Department is poised to play a key role in shaping the community and its future, as Fremont has several transformative land use and transportation projects underway and in planning to allow us to achieve the city’s vision of being “strategically urban”. Public Works is responsible for engineering, transportation, civic facilities, inspections, and maintenance for the City. The Engineering Division reviews proposed land development projects, executes the design and construction of public projects, and maintains and enhances the City’s transportation network. Employees find their work challenging, yet rewarding, and most importantly, enjoy the chance to make a difference through public service.

These projects include new livable and complete streets projects focused on moving and connecting people safely and effectively, reconnecting the grid streets downtown, connecting people and businesses with our BART stations in our Warm Springs/Innovation District & downtown, and improving, replacing, and maintaining vital infrastructure throughout the City. The current opening is in the Design section of the Engineering Division. However, work in the position may allow for experience in the Transportation or Development Review sections of Public Works.

  • Prepare project scope and cost estimates for the Capital Budget (CIP) and seek funding for projects.
  • Select, manage and review the work of consultant teams to deliver all or parts of capital projects.
  • Prepare engineering designs and reports and sign them as a Professional Engineer.
  • Other duties as assigned including flexibility to work on stretch assignments to foster professional growth.

  • Excited to work for a diverse community preparing for an exciting boom of urban growth with corresponding infrastructure needs.
  • A dynamic leader and project manager who quickly becomes a champion for his/her projects, our department and our community.
  • Knowledgeable and experienced in professional engineering practices AND flexible, progressive and innovative in seeking solutions.
  • Detail-oriented, from plans and specs preparation and review to managing project budgets and funding, yet has the ability to see the big picture vision and guide the project based on that vision.
  • Passionate about the service they provide, purposeful in delivering a high quality work product, and perseveres to achieve their goals.
  • Seek collaborative opportunities to learn from talented co-workers and grow professionally.
  • A strong communicator both written and verbal.
