    Background and Philosophy

    BDI is a very dynamic, growing company that thrives on the creativity and ideas of its employees. As a BDI engineer, you will be asked to not only work on existing projects, but also help obtain new projects by creating, maintaining, and utilizing a professional network. Along the way, we will provide a variety of safety training including ropes access, structure inspection, and just about any other type of professional development opportunities that you would be interested in pursuing.
    Within several years of being employed at BDI, our engineers tend to be well-rounded and well-traveled. We take on an amazingly wide spectrum of projects ranging from evaluating the performance of a radial lift-gate on the Snake River to installing a monitoring system on a historic fort on an island in the Gulf of Mexico, to running a building floor test in Saudi Arabia, not to mention testing and training for customers all over the world in between projects.

    We are looking for someone who is self-motivated and interested in developing their own career in structural testing, monitoring, and evaluation. Depending on the project, long hours will be necessary at times and as a team member, you may be called to assist a crew (both onsite and remotely) with short notice. BDI does not just to provide you a job, but rather an opportunity and a challenge to see where you can take your career.

    No need to apply if you are looking for a comfortable, predictable, 9-to-5 engineering position. However, if you have a taste for adventure, enjoy traveling, and like challenging yet sometimes difficult work, then this position is right for you.
