Avenue is a full-service multidisciplinary firm with 150 employees and over 15 years of success serving clients throughout the U.S.

Responsibilities: We are passionate about serving our clients, naturally collaborative, genuinely interested in new ideas, and constantly learning. It is this approach to our work that allows us to deliver the strongest environmental documents, analysis, and solutions in the industry, as well as provide new opportunities for our employees. You will have the opportunity to:

  • Lead and support environmental planning projects, either as a project manager, environmental lead, or analyst.
  • Develop, analyze, and create environmental documents.
  • Write, edit, and develop images to graphically illustrate information.

Requirements: The right person is project-driven, client focused, and a life-long-learner. We have a diverse set of environmental and project management skills on our team so any mix of environmental specialties is great, but someone with experience or interest in air quality, biological species, and/or historic preservation would find this position fulfilling.

  • Ten plus years of environmental related experience, or a minimum of seven years of environmental planning in a professional services company or department of transportation.
  • A degree in environmental sciences or planning (regional, urban, ecological, recreational, etc.) is always good but we value diversity so a degree in any field related to environmental planning works well for our team.
  • Comprehensive understanding of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), implementing regulations, and other relevant federal environmental laws (e.g., Endangered Species Act, National Historic Preservation Act, Clean Water Act, etc.)
  • Strong written communication skills are critical in this position—we are looking for demonstrated success “telling a story,” presenting information in a logical progression, and conveying complete thoughts effectively. We’ll want to see writing samples.
