We have projects all across the United States, so our people must be willing to go where the work is. Job assignment location will be determined closer to your start date.

Who We Are:

Kiewit’s roots can be traced back to 1884, where two brothers took a dream, some bricks and a little bit of mortar to build the foundation for what would become one of the largest and most respected construction, mining, and engineering companies in North America.

Mass Electric Construction Co. is a subsidiary of Kiewit Corporation, based in Irving, TX with projects stretched across all of North America.

Our operations:

• Signal systems

• Overhead contact systems

• Traction power and communication systems

• And more

Are you able to master and execute all aspects of administrative and technical project controls? Do you have an unyielding desire to build work at the lowest cost while elevating our safety and quality programs? If so, then our team is looking for you.

We’d like someone with a particular passion for building best-in-class construction projects. This position will initially be located in the US; however, the position requires the ability to relocate to Canada. As we keep working hard, we have plenty of fun along the way and stay focused executing our long term strategic goals. Are you ready?
