Job Description

MSA specializes in the sustainable development of communities. Yet, what we do is more than just a portfolio of projects. We are committed to going beyond the project – to building honest, open relationships and becoming a source of expertise and support in order to help make our communities stronger.

Founded in the 1930s as a rural land surveying business, MSA has grown into an employee-owned, multidisciplinary consulting firm employing more than 350 engineers, architects, planners, funding experts, surveyors, GIS experts, landscape architects and environmental scientists. We have 16 offices across six states (Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Texas and Wisconsin) and collaborate to pioneer projects in communities throughout the United States.

MSA has earned a variety of notable industry accolades. We have been named by the Zweig Group as one of the 2017 “Best Firms to Work For” and continue to climb the Engineering News Record’s Top 500 Design Firms list, ranking No. 310 in 2018—a 17-position rise from the previous year. MSA was also honored to be named Company of the Year for 2018 by the Wisconsin chapter of the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) Association, an award that recognizes our commitment to being a team-led, employee-focused, engaging and balanced place of work.
