Wood Rodgers, Inc.
Sacramento, CA
Added: March 11, 2024
Wood Rodgers has an Assistant Surveyor position open for someone that is passionate about (or at least really likes) land surveying and mapping. You’ll be performing various tasks such as ALTA Surveys, Records of Survey, Parcel Maps, Final Maps, plats and exhibits, legal descriptions, easement documents, and Field Survey setup for a wide range of public and private projects and clients.

We bring new ways of solving old problems.

We take the traditional surveying and mapping approach of converting field data to documenting the earth’s surface to another level by applying innovative ideas and tools to give our maps more dimension. If you are serious, dedicated and driven to uncover new and exciting solutions, then Wood Rodgers is for you.

We are inventors, we ask ‘why not?’ and we challenge convention. Sound like you? Read on:
