Kiewit is currently looking for an onsite Environmental Manager who will lead and oversee the environmental management practices of a construction project. This is an exciting position where you will not only ensure compliance with legal and contractual environmental requirements for the project but also contributes to Kiewit’s enduring dedication to corporate social responsibility.

Our mission is to make a difference and we offer opportunities for you to make one too through our construction operations.

You bring your big ideas, commitment to top quality, and an unwavering work ethic. In return, we offer huge career and travel opportunities and the satisfaction of building the next big thing from the ground up. There’s a reason Kiewit attracts the best: we offer fast-paced excitement and fulfillment you won’t find anywhere else.


District Overview

Kiewit's South Central District is one of Kiewit's leading infrastructure districts specializing in heavy civil, transportation, and water resource markets. Projects you could be working on could include mass grading, drainage, paving, utility and more.  Although most of our work is regionally based in the south-central region of the United States, we also pursue various projects stretching across the United States. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about infrastructure and committed to the construction industry as opposed to design.
