Our Culture

Our Team

Our Team

At SCJ we strive to create an environment where coworkers become friends, sharing hopes and dreams, struggles and challenges. As a 100% employee-owned company, there is trust amongst us and confidence that we are pulling for each other, no matter how different our backgrounds or interests.

We encourage social gatherings and the firm sponsors summer picnics, holiday parties and other opportunities to spend time together outside the pressures and responsibilities of the office. We take time to play together, celebrate together and cheer each other on.

Favorite Project of All Time
Designing the expansion of SR 305 from two lanes to four with bike lanes through the town of Poulsbo, Washington, for the Washington State Department of Transportation. It included 12 structural earth walls, 5 fish passages, and a stream realignment as well as utilities, complete road rebuild, limited right of way, new driveways for all the businesses—all within 1.2 miles. It was intense, fast, and made a huge difference to daily commuters and the environment. Fish returned almost immediately to parts of the river they hadn’t been seen in for 50 years!
