The Survey Technician will work with the Survey Department Manager as well as all other pertinent team members to collect field data and perform monument recovery in order to generate a detailed visual representation of a surveyed location for a survey order or engineering project. If qualified, they may use computer design programs to sketch site designs, when needed, and collect relevant details from the field such as materials, dimensions, and industry appropriate standards. Accurate field data must be obtained and kept in order to complete survey orders to the highest standards.
