SE Group is seeking a Mountain Planning CAD Tech to join our Salt Lake City office.  This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a team of industry leaders that sets the standard for the design and planning of ski areas and mountain resorts around the world. One week you may be drafting chair lift designs for a resort in Alaska, the next the trail layout for an expansion in Utah, and another the specs for a base area in Vermont. Our job sites are the places most people save for vacation!

This position provides a lot of room for growth and developing design skills, and a unique opportunity to be mentored in a specialized field that continues to grow rapidly.  If you love the mountains and shine in fast-moving and highly collaborative environments, we want to hear from you!

About SE Group

At SE Group, our work is grounded in the belief that outdoor recreational experiences are a powerful foundation for thriving communities. This belief is the driving force behind our passion for uncovering the unique potential of every place and space we serve.

SE Group has been the industry leader in the planning and design of mountain resorts since 1958. Over the years, our team has grown to include landscape architects, engineers, community planners, environmental experts, and economic advisors that are pioneering how communities across the country think about recreation, tourism, and outdoor spaces. Whether it’s a multi-season mountain resort or a schoolyard playground, our clients trust us to lead them from the first spark of inspiration to the final phase of implementation.

With hubs in Utah, Colorado, and Vermont, we are lucky to live in the heart of some of the amazing recreational communities we serve.  We all share a passion for getting outside (in its many diverse forms) and SE Group is committed to offering an exceptional employee experience that honors this, as well as one that promotes collaboration, mentorship, growth – and laughter!

Position Priorities

This position is designed for applicants who are new or continuing to develop in the field of planning and engineering (0-3 years experience).

Candidates must demonstrate AutoCAD proficiency, an interest in design, and the ability to effectively communicate design ideas graphically.  Experience with design tools such as Adobe Creative Cloud suite, 3d modeling platforms, Global Mapper, Infraworks, and GPS software is desirable.

Responsibilities for this position include developing concept plans, site plans, grading plans, profiles and section drawings, manipulating surfaces (typically LiDAR point cloud based), 3D modelling, and preparation of various graphics for environmental analysis and master plan documents. Creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking are a must!  We are looking for someone who is self-motivated, communicative, and eager to make a difference.

We are currently operating in a combined remote and in-office work environment, and being able to meet and socialize in the same space is important to our team dynamic. Candidates that live (or can relocate) within reasonable driving distance of our Salt Lake City, UT office will be preferred. Being a passionate skier or snowboarder isn’t required, but certainly helps in understanding the complexities of designing mountain resorts.
