Who We Are:

Founded in 1964, TTL is an engineering design firm focused on delivering integrated infrastructure solutions for public and private clients. From site and corridor selection to due diligence, design, and construction services, TTL is your trusted partner providing single-sourced custom solutions for complex infrastructure development. With more than 400 team members across the Southern United States, TTL provides a wide range of services, including civil, transportation, and geotechnical engineering; environmental consulting and remediation; testing, inspection, and observation of construction materials; and surveying.

What We Want:

Nothing gets built without a good design, and nothing gets designed without good data. That’s why TTL is looking for capable and competent workers to join our team as a geotechnical field logger, a position that guides so much of what we do in our drive to satisfy clients. Being comfortable outdoors and a willingness to travel are helpful, as is a background in geology or other earth-based sciences. Our geotechnical field loggers work as the eyes and ears in the field for our design professionals, so while you’ll be tasked with collecting soil samples for safety analysis, you’ll also be asked to take a proactive and mindful approach to each individual job site. If you can see something, can you say something? Can you move easily between tasks while keeping detailed and accurate records? If so, then our doors are open to you.

At TTL, we are driven to serve our clients, our communities, and especially our people. TTL provides a great work/life balance as well as excellent employee benefits, including a robust health and dental plan, a vision plan, a 401(k) program with a company match, flexible spending accounts, and generous paid-time off (PTO) accrual.

Build your foundation. Build your future. Build your legacy.
