Our professional certification bonuses and tuition reimbursement program reward you for reaching new heights.

Community Involvement & Company Values: We live and play in the communities we serve. Beyond our engineering solutions, we volunteer our time and participate in community events.

Begin Your Journey

You are hungry for success, and we want to meet you. HR Green values ambitious minds – that is why we work with several universities to offer scholarships for civil engineering students. We also place a high value on internships, as well as helping our developing employees grow throughout their career.

Internship Program: We provide a robust internship program throughout our business lines and multiple office locations. Our interns are challenged and provided the opportunity to learn and grow as they experience a professional work environment. The consistent feedback we receive from our interns is that they never expected to get the chance to do this level of work during their internship. In addition to day-to-day mentorship, there is exposure to myriad projects that allow an intern to see all aspects of the engineering environment. Our ultimate goal is to have these interns become HR Green employees that can continue our bright legacy into the future.

Entry Level Opportunities: To wow our clients, we know we need the best new graduates in the country. We offer entry-level opportunities throughout our footprint each year to ensure the next generation is ready to make the next 100 years as successful as our first.

Young Professional Groups: Charting a path inside a new organization can be challenging. HR Green has more than 75 employees who participate in Young Professional (YP) Groups in each office. Exceptional peer group support combines with direct access to company leaders to create a way for young professionals to not only understand their career path but to share and grow with their contemporaries.

Scholarships & Campus Relationships: We partner with multiple schools to offer scholarship opportunities to support the Civil Engineering programs and students. We currently partner with schools such as University of Iowa, Iowa State University, South Dakota State University, and University of Illinois – Champaign. We also work and partner with multiple other universities as we focus on the future to give students and new grads the chance to learn and join a great organization.

Staff Engineer -HR Green

Jeremy Horwitz, EIT – Staff Engineer – Transportation
McHenry, IL

What do you enjoy most about working for HR Green?
At HR Green, I’ve enjoyed working on a wide range of projects and with several different project managers. HR Green gives me the opportunity to grow as an engineer by allowing me to grow my technical skills on various projects and interpersonal skills working with different project managers.

What was a few of your favorite projects?
Two of my favorite projects are quite different in scale, but both were equally challenging and fun to design. On the larger end of the spectrum, I worked on a drainage and erosion control design for the new I-57 interchange at I-294. This project required coordinating between IDOT and Illinois Tollway standards and planning around the complexities of a multi-year, multi-contract project. It was also great just to be a part of a team involved in connecting the second to last Interstate crossing in this country.

Toward the other end of the spectrum I worked on a neighborhood reconstruction and infrastructure project for the Village of Mundelein. While the project only encompassed a handful of residential streets, it had the complexities and challenges of a much larger project. The existing streets on this project had a rural cross section (shoulder and ditches at the edge of pavement). The Village wanted to improve upon these old streets with new curb and gutter. With adding new curb and gutter we needed to add new storm sewer to collect the flow of water. In addition to improving the aging roadways, the scope of the project also included replacing the existing 6” water main with new 8” water main and performing spot replacement of the aging sanitary sewer system.

What made you decide to join HR Green?
When I interviewed with HR Green, I saw that they were quite unique compared to similar firms in the industry. HR Green focuses on creating a great environment for their employees to grow and chart their own path. This then translates into creating cohesive and successful teams that are able to provide exceptional client service.

I also liked that HR Green has the ability to grow its employees through cross-department collaboration and cross-office work sharing. I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with our structural, water/wastewater, water resources, and land development departments. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with our South Dakota office on an Iowa project.

What has you excited about the future here at HR Green?
I’m most excited about growing my skills here at HR Green. This will allow me to have an ever increasing positive impact on my community and will help to build upon the success of our company. The incredibly talented and dedicated people I work with have become my work family. I think this environment that HR Green has fostered puts HR Green in a perfect position to deliver exceptional internal and external client service. This will be one of the biggest factors that will continue to drive our success for miles down the road.
