Join Our Team


The realities of the A/E/C industry can place high demands on people. At AKS Engineering & Forestry, LLC, we recognize this and go out of our way to create a career environment that is professional, supportive, flexible, and challenging.

We are committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our people are the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and our success. We know that a diverse workforce, not subject to bias, either implicit or explicit, fosters a climate of innovation, collaboration, and collegiality that makes us stronger and more responsive to our clients’ needs.

Work Environment

Our desire is to constantly evolve and respond dynamically to markets, employees, and client needs.

AKS was built on the philosophy that there is always something more to learn. We encourage the sharing of knowledge with each other, recognizing that we have industry leaders right here on staff and have a lot to learn from each other. Hands-on learning through site visits, informal tech talks, outside speakers, and other learning opportunities are designed to encourage growth at all levels.

Get Connected

The heart of AKS is based on getting to know each other. It is why we have lunch together every Wednesday. Like a family dinnertime, we sit together, share a meal, and talk about our lives. Wednesday lunches are one great example of how we get people connected. You’ll find lots of great opportunities to get to know both coworkers and clients.

I like the collaborative team environment and relaxed office culture.

AKS is a good fit for someone who likes to feel challenged, and wants to be part of a team that puts out an excellent product. Quality is our top priority and we know with this focus we will keep attracting the best clients and employees. The result is a unique place that produces exceptional work while maintaining a casual work environment where employees are challenged.
