Job Description
At Westland, we are each driven by our own purposes and aspirations. We are encouraged to develop our own unique skills while also growing our business. For some, it's envisioning the lives of tribal ancestors as told by the artifacts uncovered on their lands. For others, there's no greater meaning than being in the field collecting data on flora or fauna. For our engineers and architects, it may be the pride in seeing a design come to life or solving a complex problem while navigating the complexities of environmental and permitting requirements. What unites us all, however, is our commitment to our clients and to each other.

As a100% employee-owned company with over 200 employees across 4 states, Westland is large enough to provide a wide range of opportunities for career growth yet nimble enough for you to forge a unique business and professional path.
