Website Town of Windsor
The award-winning Town of Windsor is located in Sonoma County and offers the highly acclaimed wine country experience, along with economic opportunity, temperate weather, safe and well-maintained streets and parks, and a beautiful location. The Town has a population of 28,565 and is situated 60 miles north of San Francisco, 20 miles east of the Pacific Ocean, and 8 miles northwest of the County Seat in Santa Rosa. Incorporated as a common law city in July 1992, Windsor provides a modern, relaxed lifestyle with a growing retail and industrial center for the North County. The Town is currently on a 4/10 work schedule from Monday through Thursday, and is closed on Friday, allowing employees more time to enjoy a work-life balance.
Under direct and general supervision, performs civil engineering work in the planning, design, technical investigation, inspection, and construction of projects in several areas of public works and civil engineering, and performs related work as required.
Engineer I/II/III is a flexibly-staffed class series in the engineering series. Advancement from the Engineer I level to the II level, or the Engineer II level or the Engineer II level to the III level is at the discretion of the appointing authority, provided that the following criteria are met: (1) the minimum qualifications and time-in-grade requirements, (2) demonstration of the ability to independently perform the full scope of the assigned duties. The Engineer I/II/III series is differentiated from the Engineering Technician classification in that the latter does not require a bachelor’s degree in engineering, math or science and does not perform professional engineering level work. This classification is differentiated from the Associate Civil Engineer position in that the latter requires California registration as a professional civil engineer.
Engineer I is the entry level engineer classification. Incumbents perform less complex office and field civil engineering work under direct supervision in preparation for advancement to the advanced level of Engineer II.
Engineer II is the advanced level class in the engineering series, not requiring registration. Positions in this class must meet the minimum qualifications for the Engineer I. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the lower class of Engineer I, or if filled from the outside, requires prior experience as a professional engineer or engineering technician and possession of an Engineer-in-Training Certificate. Incumbents in this class work under general direction and perform moderately difficult engineering work in civil engineering. Engineer IIs are normally considered to be of a continuing training status and as assigned responsibilities and breadth of knowledge increase with experience, may reasonably expect to be promoted to the next higher class of Engineer III.
Engineer III is the journey level class in the engineering series. Positions in the class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the lower class of Engineer II, or, when filled from the outside, require two years civil engineering work experience and possession of an Engineer-in-Training Certificate. An Engineer III works under general supervision and is expected to complete complex civil engineering assignments requiring the use of judgement and initiative in developing solutions to problems, interpreting general policies, and determining work assignments. Work in this class is distinguished from that of the Engineer II class by the greater complexity of the assignments received and by the greater independence with which an incumbent is expected to operate.
An eligibility list will be created from this recruitment and will be in effect for nine months.
