Consultant/Engineering Technician: Brisbane, CA

Colin Gordon Associates is a small but internationally recognized vibration and noise control consulting firm. In addition to projects covering a full range of vibration and noise control, we specialize in the design of low-vibration and low-noise buildings for the microelectronics, nanotechnology, imaging, and research communities. This is a unique opportunity to participate in an area of expanding importance. We are seeking applicants for the following positions:


Applicants should have an MS degree or higher in civil/structural engineering, mechanical engineering, or physics. Coursework or experience in finite element analysis (FEA) of structural systems is required, and other computer modeling for vibration and acoustics analysis is preferred. The position requires some familiarity with the “built environment”, including steel and concrete structures, soils, and foundations. Familiarity with measurement instruments, DSP, general theory of acoustics, and 5+ years of consulting experience in vibration and noise control is also desirable.

Engineering Technician

This is an entry-level position for someone wishing to develop a career working in sound and vibration control. An engineer/technician is required to assist in collection and analysis of acoustic and vibration data and in maintenance and upgrade of measurement instrumentation. Experience with measurement instrumentation and DSP is important. Applicants should be familiar with basic computer hardware and operating systems, and popular software applications for spreadsheets and CAD systems. Applicant should have at least a Baccalaureate or equivalent in engineering or physics. Extra credit will be given for prior experience with instrumentation related to vibration and acoustic measurements.

For both positions, good written and oral communication skills are required. The applicant must be able to work in a team environment, but also independently, as travel and field measurement work is required.

We offer excellent salaries and benefits (health, 401(k)/profit sharing, etc.). CGA is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
