Stantec Senior Civil (CAD) Technologist in DARTMOUTH, Nova Scotia

Senior Civil (CAD) Technologist - ( 220003ZV )


Many of the world’s top engineers and scientists come together in our Water business because they view a community’s interaction with water a bit differently—as a single holistic system, rather than unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. Working throughout the hydrologic cycle, we are delivering sustainable solutions to make sure water is where it should be and available when needed. Our experts guide our work with scientific rigor, an innovative spirit, and a vision for growth. Every day, we help communities improve, reuse, and protect this precious resource for future generations. By 2025 we’re hiring 2,000 people (like you) to join our team. Grow with us, H2O+U.

Your Opportunity

Stantec is a dynamic, people-centered environment that has been recognized by Forbes as one of the world’s best employers.
