We are a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business with offices in the Pacific Northwest and the Southeast. Remote work is also an option for certain roles.

Our firm was rated the 172nd fastest-growing company on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list.

The Journeyman Electrician will be part of the dynamic A/E Design team within SDB's Design-Bid-Build operations. This team is primarily involved in design for various project types within the Veterans Affairs Medical Center systems throughout the United States. The position will support the electrical AE design, design document reviews, estimating and traveling as required to assist with electrical site surveys and installing load metering equipment as needed.

Job Qualifications:

  • High school diploma or equivalent.
  • Completion of an accredited electrician apprenticeship program.

  • Relevant certifications in electrical systems and energy management preferred.
  • 5-10 years of healthcare and/or industrial electrical experience required.
  • Proven experience with a focus on low and medium voltage power systems and renewable energy systems (e.g. photo-voltaic systems).

If this occurs, the electrical engineer and the journeyman electrician are responsible for resolving any issues or problems that may arise. They work quickly to revise the plans so there isn't an interruption or delay in construction.
  • Conducting System Tests - throughout the course of the job, the journeyman electrician will periodically perform system tests on electrical systems and devices. This ensures that everything is working optimally and allows for problems to be resolved before they become bigger issues. At the final inspection, the journeyman electrician will not only test individual components and the electrical system, but they will also ensure everything is up to local and national codes.
