If you thrive in a fast-paced environment and like to see engineering designs translated into constructed work in real time, a career at JMT may be right for you.  Working at JMT has given me the opportunity to work on a diverse array of interesting projects that range from small bridge replacement projects to some of the largest, most complex and challenging design-build projects in the industry.  Early in my career at JMT, I worked on the Paper Mill Road Bridge project in Baltimore County Maryland.  I was part of a team responsible for preliminary and final design for this steel box arch with a span of 495 feet that rises to a height of 99 feet above the Gunpowder Falls, an environmentally sensitive watershed for Baltimore City.  This is the longest steel through arch span in Maryland.   This project was challenging from a design standpoint but also due to the environmental concerns and the historical and aesthetic elements of the existing bridge, which was undisturbed by the construction.  The project received multiple national and regional awards for excellence during design and construction.

I have also had the opportunity to work on some mega projects such as the Inter County Connector Contract 'C' Design-Build Project in Maryland and the 11th Street Corridor Design-Build Project in Washington, DC.  The Design-build approach takes collaboration to a new level.  Designers and contractors work side by side every day.  This is essential to delivering the most cost-effective project possible, and challenges us, as professionals, to embrace new methods for delivering traditional engineering services.  These challenges and more are what make JMT such an engaging place to work.
