Are you a motivated and creative Electrical Engineer with a passion for innovation, sustainable design and environmental responsibility?  Join a leading design firm!  GRW Engineers, Inc. is an expanding, national, multi-disciplined firm listed in the ENR Top 500 for the 44th consecutive year!  GRW has a career opportunity available for an entry-level Electrical Engineer at our Lexington, KY headquarters. 

GRW is a full-service engineering, architectural, and geospatial consulting firm. The company was founded in 1964 by Mr. G. Reynolds Watkins to provide engineering services to federal, state, municipal, and private industry clients. Since that time, GRW has grown to become a national design firm with offices in Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and West Virginia. Watkins' insistence on technical excellence and personal service lives on as the guiding principle at GRW. This dedication to service has resulted in repeat clients providing 90 percent of GRW's current workload!  Principals and associates representing many disciplines work one-on-one with clients. Close, personal service is the hallmark of GRW's business philosophy.

As an electrical design engineer, you will work closely with architectural, mechanical and structural department colleagues on a variety of projects.  GRW offers a wide variety of engineering services for our clients' infrastructure and building design projects. Our multidiscipline personnel function as a cohesive design team to create local and regional utility systems, energy-efficient building components, environmentally-sensitive site developments, and safe, modern transportation facilities.  GRW provides comprehensive technical resources for all types of infrastructure designs.  GRW's assignments range in scope from planning studies to projects with construction costs in excess of $180 million.  GRW's teams have designed projects ranging from a few thousand square feet to campuses with gross building area over 600,000 SF.  Our building designs encompass the latest power and lighting systems for LED, telecommunications, audio/visual, electrical power distribution and other systems.  These high-performance projects frequently pursue Net Zero Energy and LEED certification.  Because of our in-house team, GRW has capability to successfully plan, design and deliver large, complex projects, as easily as smaller projects.

While our revenues have earned us an Engineering News-Record Top 500 ranking since 1972, what keeps us on top is our quality of service. Our approach is simple. Our corporate culture is one of close collaboration among our multidisciplinary project teams, combined with strong management leadership. Regardless of size or complexity, we use our diverse insights and perspectives to move projects forward in a timely and cost-effective manner, while using clear and open lines of communication. We are also proud of GRW's large amount of repeat business. For example, since 1964 GRW has provided services to one of our very first clients, Keeneland, a combination Thoroughbred race course and sales company located in the heart of Kentucky's famed Bluegrass Region. The quality of our work is demonstrated in the numerous awards our projects have won, both on national and state levels.

GRW offers a challenging work environment combining the latest in engineering concepts with career development to keep personnel up to date with the latest technologies and advancements.  Under the direction and guidance of experienced professional engineers, you will learn to design power distribution and controls projects, including field investigation, troubleshooting and testing.  Your personal capabilities, interest, aptitude, and motivation will determine your professional growth.
