Survey Crew Chief ll

Hiring for: Woodinville

“Many companies offer surveying services, but there are a number of reasons why LDC stands above the rest.  We are self-motivated and take personal ownership in our work, we are detail oriented and we pride ourselves on the service we offer to our clients.

 All of our surveyors are either licensed or on the path to achieving their licensure, which is very rare in the industry. Our department structure is somewhat lateral, in that every employee is highly valued and their input is both solicited and taken seriously. We value teamwork very highly here at LDC.”  – LDC Survey Manager
