About Us

Olsson Associates is a successful engineering and design firm that has been creating public and private projects throughout the United States since 1956. We offer comprehensive design and consulting services in water/wastewater, water resources, land development, landscape architecture, urban planning, environmental resources and compliance, transportation, technology, municipal, geotechnical, and mechanical and electrical.

As employees, how we work together makes the difference in the solutions we deliver. We're more than a company of individuals; we're a team of problem solvers. The process of finding the right answer is different for every client and every project.

We see problems as an opportunity for creativity, and we're looking for people who want to roll up their sleeves, get to work, and make a difference to the clients and communities we serve.

Imagine a place where responsibility is shared equally among all employees. Where information is open and rewards are shared. Where success is measured by people and their accomplishments.

Now imagine yourself working at Olsson Associates.


To keep our firm nimble and adaptable to change, we maintain a flat organizational structure. Our firm is built around a multi-team concept, with each team centered on a discipline within an office. Each team functions with a high level of autonomy and responsibility but the inter-team relationships are collaborative rather than competitive.

The firm as a whole functions on a bottom-up rather than a top-down information flow. The atmosphere is informal -- titles and office size are not status symbols here -- and all employees are encouraged to take initiative, anticipate change, and demonstrate leadership.

We've purposefully organized our firm into small teams, a formula that has kept us flexible enough to achieve great results. Being part of a small team gives our employees a strong sense of belonging and accountability--no one gets lost in the crowd, no one can hide. And because we are so results-oriented, there is little room for excuses. We have challenges in place of excuses--no cop-outs, just challenges that we problem-solve until we get results that make our clients happy.

Small Office Flavor
At Olsson, communication and collaboration are encouraged, dress is informal, the work environment is pleasant, the normal work week is 4.5 days, and flex time is an option.

Compensation and Benefits

Olsson believes our employees are our greatest asset and the key to our success. As such, we strive to create an environment in which all employees encounter many new challenges and rewards. Our compensation and benefits program is intended to provide for our employees, to recognize their contributions to the firm, and to reward outstanding performance.

Base Salary Structure
We offer competitive base salaries, which are evaluated annually to determine the market value for similar positions in our geographic area.

Performance-Based Bonus
Olsson Associates' bonus program is designed to reward performance on many levels company-wide and for teams and individuals. Our basic goal is to share profit with the teams and individuals who help generate it.

Insurance Benefits
Olsson Associates' insurance program provides comprehensive benefits to employees and their dependants, including health, dental, vision, life, and short- and long-term disability insurance.

Retirement Plan
Olsson offers a cash or deferred retirement and trust plan approved by the IRS, with many investment options through MassMutual. Employees can enroll immediately, provided they are 21 years of age. Employees may contribute up to 100 percent of their compensation, not to exceed the IRS annual limits, and are 100 percent vested immediately.

Employees have two options for withholding: a pre-tax deferral deposited into a 401(k) or an after-tax deferral deposited into the Roth 401(k). Rollovers from other qualified plans are allowed.

Employee Ownership
All employees have the opportunity to become owners in the firm through Olsson Associates' stock bonus program, which provides eligible employees with bonuses to purchase shares of company stock. The number of shares an individual can purchase depends primarily on his or her commitment to the firm and overall responsibilities.

Employees also may choose to participate in our Employee Stock Ownership Plan. This program enables employees to share in the growth and prosperity of Olsson Associates and to accumulate capital for retirement. Olsson Associates typically makes an annual contribution to the ESOP for each qualifying participant; this contribution is a percentage of the firm's gross salary. This plan will function during times of ownership transition and may or may not be a part of the firm's benefits program in the future.

Paid Time Off
We understand that employees need to spend time away from work for a variety of individual reasons--holidays, family time, illnesses, and vacations are just a few. Our Paid Time Off (PTO) program allows employees the flexibility to take time off with pay. Employees earn PTO according to length of service with the firm.

Continuing Education
The firm provides tuition reimbursement or cost sharing upon approval immediately following employment, with the exception of new graduates who will be eligible after one year of continuous employment. The percentage of reimbursement is based on the course content and the value of the course of study to the firm.

Employee Wellness Program
The firm has a corporate wellness program designed to promote the benefits of exercise and healthy lifestyles. The program centers upon a point system, which rewards healthful behavior with incentives when given point levels are achieved.

The firm provides parking for regular full-time and permanent part-time employees.

We're always on the lookout for motivated, talented people who want to make a difference with the work they do. If you're eager to join a dynamic team of diverse leaders -- whether you're a seasoned professional or a recent graduate -- we'd like to hear from you.

If you would enjoy working in a dynamic environment and are looking for an opportunity to become part of a stellar team of professionals, we invite you to apply online today.

We are an equal opportunity employer. Employment selection and related decisions are made without regard to sex, race, age, disability, religion, national origin, color or any other protected class.
