Who we are and what we are looking for

Whether its reducing methane emissions at agricultural facilities and landfills, repurposing contaminated properties, producing alternative energy, or sequestering carbon, weve been focused on finding smart climate solutions and improving the natural environment since our inception over 50 years ago. Join our 100% employee-owned firm and start creating your own legacy.

We are looking for a temporary Environmental Technician that will work in the field with a team at various sites throughout Iowa over the summer. The position will involve travel each week to the different sites. This is an exciting opportunity for someone that wants to get their foot in the door in the environmental industry and make a positive impact on the environment. This is a paid summer job and you will be compensated for travel.

How you can make an impact

You will support our Sustainable Materials Management practice by doing waste characterization studies at multiple sites over the summer. These studies help Iowa integrated solid waste planners design waste reduction initiatives, set up recycling programs, and conserve money and resources. Added to the excitement is the use of this data to help Iowa change its focus from end of life material management to more sustainable approaches and identification and use of alternative materials. You will need a desire to learn and will get hands on experience over the summer. You will be 100% out in the field at project sites.


  • Ability to travel Sunday night through Friday throughout Iowa for the months of June and July required. If you are available to start the week of May 8th, even better!
  • Experience with environmental fieldwork preferred.
  • Valid drivers license with a driving record in good standing required.
