  • Be involved with designs of new or refurbishment of overall hydroelectric plants
  • Work on facility wide or major component refurbishments for hydroelectric plants, cranes and pumping systems
  • Travel within Canada and internationally




  • Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering
  • Minimum of 10 years of related design experience

  • Ability to technically review the work of others
  • Ability to project manage for a variety of engineering projects.
  • Effective verbal and written English communication skills, with demonstrated report writing skills
  • Ability to travel domestically and internationally



The salary for this position is $105,000 to $180,000 per year. Salary is based on applicable experience, education, and skill level. In addition to salary total rewards includes:


  • Hybrid work opportunities
  • Annual performance and salary review
  • PSMJ’s supported track record of profitability, leading to above average bonus payouts
  • Vacation policy that aligns to your experience
  • Paid OT, and wellness days
  • Flexible benefits, including RSP, social, and mental well-being initiatives
