SSA offers competitive salaries, an excellent work environment and a high retention rate among our professional staff. We’re selective about the projects we take on, only working for the best and brightest, eschewing cheap and easy commissions in favor of projects of high stature for institutions of high acclaim. Our selective standards for excellence also apply to the engineers we hire, maintaining our reputation within industries where groundbreaking innovation is cost-of-entry.

SSA team members are also happy to share their own stories. From a 3rd-party, 2020 Employee Satisfaction Survey:

“The technical projects SSA has been a part of is exciting as an engineer that likes to be challenged. The people at SSA are the reason I stay."

“Everyone is willing to help others out, and it’s not a competitive environment. We’re working
to get the job done for the client in the best way possible.”

“The Shah Smith reputation holds a high standard in our industry and they’re respected by both clients and contractors. Contractors admit SSA is tough on them, but at the end of a project they have the least amount of problems making the design work.”

“I joined because of the respect and trust of the founding members. Stayed because of the respect and trust of new hires.”

“Technical expertise and mentorship, hard to find both at one firm.”

“Cutting edge projects within the state of Texas.”

“The work is challenging and the quality, a point of pride.”

SSA seeks team players with great interpersonal skills and excellent technical ability. As one of our professionals, you will have the opportunity to work on a wide array of projects in multiple markets, where your analytical skills and design expertise will be given the opportunity to shine.

We value our team and strive to offer an environment where our staff can grow and develop, both personally and professionally, while undertaking challenging MEP design projects.
