Structural Design Engineer for Port and Infrastructure projects

Do you have what it takes to tackle engineering challenges for the world’s largest port developments?

With a bulging portfolio of port and marine projects, we are looking for an ambitious structural engineer to expand and strengthen our team. You will join our group of dedicated experts as an experienced engineer responsible for project delivery of structural concrete disciplines on port and marine projects. Further, you will collaborate across the organisation on heavy infrastructure and off-shore energy projects.

Your responsibilities

You are expected to:

  • Take an active role on port and marine projects to deliver state-of-art structural concrete design
  • Ensure that structural design is practical, buildable and fits the client’s design brief
  • Structure and produce clear and elaborate design documentation
  • Organise and give input to graphic deliverables
  • Collaborate with geotechnical teams to ensure optimal design
  • Take part in development of in-house best practice materials and knowledge sharing across the structural network 

Your profile and competencies

You are a confident and driven structural engineer with strong academic background primarily in structural concrete. Ideally, you have:

  • 4-6 years of experience in design of heavy concrete structures such as capping beams and slabs, piled decks, caissons, buttress walls, diaphragm walls, etc.
  • Keen understanding of building industry codes (Eurocode, BS 6349, Pianc, DNV)
  • Advanced knowledge of one or more FEM programs (Lusas – advantage)
  • Strong analytical skills and structural understanding
  • Ability to effectively communicate your ideas through precise technical sketches
  • Basic understanding of geotechnics, soil-structure interaction and typical modes of failure in soil retaining structures
  • Basic knowledge of marine disciplines associated with port projects (quay equipment, scour protection, elements of navigation and port planning)
  • Technical creativity and good verbal and written communication skills
  • Team spirit and ability to go beyond client’s expectations

Danish language skills at professional level are not necessary but are considered as an advantage.

Join the Ports and Geo Structures department

The Ports and Geo Structures department is part of Ramboll’s ports and marine service line spread across several countries. Our current projects include client consultant role for one of the world’s largest blue-field port developments – Port of Cherchell (Algeria), Port of Nador (Morocco), new terminals for CMP in Nordhavn (DK), wharf in Alotau (PNG) and several detailed design port projects in Bangladesh.

We nurture a distinct inter-disciplinary approach and emphasize cohesion between structural and geotechnical disciplines to ensure that all members of the team can bring tangible value to some of the most complex projects in Ramboll’s portfolio, both in Denmark and internationally.

You will be part of a highly engaged and ambitious group where you will find sufficient expert guidance from some of the best structural and geotechnical experts but also be able to exert leadership towards junior staff.
