We are an employee-owned environmental and engineering consulting firm where employees have a say in growing and shaping the company. Our people are passionate, engaged, and enjoy learning from one another while working together on unique and creative projects to stay challenged while constantly developing technical talent.

“One of the things I like about working at Kleinschmidt the most is getting the opportunity to develop innovative solutions for our clients. More often than not, these solutions are one of a kind and require custom written programs. I’m always getting the opportunity to work on something new and exciting across multiple disciplines. Work here is never boring.”

Kevin Nebiolo, PhD – Sr. Data Scientist

“Being an engineer at Kleinschmidt I have enjoyed the opportunity to be involved in a variety of meaningful projects that have had a positive benefit on our society and our environment. Working in the field of Hydropower Renewable Energy provides a sense of accomplishment knowing we are helping to provide the power needed for our communities to thrive while minimizing the impact we are having.”

Jesse Waldrip, P.E. – Sr. Structural Engineer

“I truly enjoy my work as a dam safety inspector as it affords me the opportunity to travel to many beautiful locations I wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to visit. From helicopter inspections in Newfoundland, Canada to irrigation reservoir inspections located between cinder cones on the Island of Hawaii, and everywhere in between, Kleinschmidt has provided work experiences I will never forget.”

Nicholas M. Ciomei, P.E. – Project Engineer

“I appreciate the approachability of senior management and their understanding of the hydropower industry. This understanding allows for productive conversations and creative approaches with input from every corner of the firm.”

Kim Hansen

“I appreciate the diverse areas of expertise of Kleinschmidt employees. If I ever have a question about anything, there is always someone who can help answer it.”

Kleinschmidt - What Makes Us Unique

What Makes Us Unique?

We provide niche services that allow us to work on intensely creative and unique projects, while developing practical solutions that save our clients’ money and minimize or enhance environmental impacts.

Our employees own Kleinschmidt. As owners, we invest wisely in our organization in ways that add long term value, such as bringing all employees together for company-wide retreats,  investing in our formal career or leadership development programs, our continual investments in strategic growth geographies, and growing new service areas.

Successful applicants will have an opportunity to work directly with our senior staff to pursue meaningful work that focuses on solving client problems, while growing our people and growing the firm’s that is measured by achieving strategic objectives over the longer term.

We also have ample opportunity for those who are interested in traveling and working in various locations throughout North America.

Our Work Environment

We enjoy a relaxed, professional atmosphere where employees consider each other family.  Kleinschmidt is consistently recognized as a Best Firms/Best Places to Work. We also offer:

Employees say that our flexible work environment is one of our most valuable benefits because it promotes an environment in which the clients’ needs are met while providing for quality of life for team members.

Employees have the freedom to prioritize family needs with flexible work hours and working remotely.

Our offices are in places you will be happy to call “home.” Our founder, Dr. R. Stevens Kleinschmidt, started our firm in Pittsfield, Maine, and although we want our employees to enjoy the benefits of living near larger cities, we prefer to work in more modest, family oriented locations like Lexington, South Carolina; Fitchburg, Wisconsin; and Peterborough, Ontario.

As a result, most project teams include employees from a variety of locations, and we interact and collaborate every day.
