Would you like to join our team?

Would you like to join our team? We are always interested in hard-working individuals with a variety of skill sets and backgrounds for full- and part-time positions. We may not always be hiring, but we do always accept resumes. Email your resume to or below is an explanation of the roles you might fulfill here.

Field Personnel

James Surveying Company runs multiple field crews of one to three people depending on the equipment in use and the requirements of the job sites for the day. A typical day might take you to several parts of the greater metropolitan area, allowing you to explore our beautiful cities, towns and countrysides like few jobs do. If you enjoy walking and the great outdoors, our field crews provide a unique and healthy line of work.

The roles may be described as Party Crew Chief, Instrument Technician, and/or Field Technician, with some overlap due to particular skill sets. We are especially interested in those who have or are seeking to gain experience working with GNSS receivers, total stations (robotic and conventional) or even those who have good handwriting and drawing skills or a good head for numbers.

CAD Drafters

Our office employs a number of in-house Project Drafters who prepare our survey drawings from the notes and data collected by the field crews. They work under the direct supervision of the Professional Land Surveyor and get exposure to a variety of maps, plats, deeds and public records research. We are interested in people who are familiar with drafting using modern AutoCAD products. If you have knowledge of or are seeking to learn about land surveying, from calculations of boundaries to the nuances required for different types of survey plats, our office will provide you with a rich learning environment that is especially useful for those seeking to become a Professional Land Surveyor themselves.
