Careers with Dunn
Dunn Associates, Inc. is growing strategically and looking for the best people. As a leading structural engineering firm in the intermountain area for over 20 years, Dunn Associates continues to be involved with some of the best projects in the region. Exclusively focused on structures, we innovate, create, and optimize unique structural solutions for our loyal public and private clients. Our seismic design criteria is equal that of California, so a command of high-end seismic analysis and design is a must.
The successful candidate(s) will first and foremost be required to have high personal skills while interacting with our clients. We are professional consultants and our attitudes and manors are of high importance. Interaction with other design professionals within our office is expected.
Our reason for growing is not project specific but rather a sound business decision.
Compensation is very competitive and varies with experience. Dunn pays full medical for the employee and their dependents, covers full dental for the employee, life insurance policies, engages in 401k matching, contributes $2,000 annually to Health Savings Account (HSA), and gives generous PTO (including holiday and vacation days). Other perks to be discussed as the dialog progresses.
Can you believe that we get paid well to come up with cool ideas? Our office environment fosters it, our culture expects it, our recruiters look for it and our clients appreciate it.
Our services are not for everybody. We charge more because we deliver more. We expect just as much from our clients as they do from us. We love this challenge and want to earn our keep with every project. Never will we take a job or client for granted.
“Have laptop, will travel.” Our greatest value is with our clients, whether it be in front of a video conference call or face to face. Nobody incorporates more technology and ways to stay connected with our own team and our clients.
We are consultants and as such, it is our duty to be responsive to changes in both time and substance. We chose this role and understand our best path to success is through our clients’ success.
We don’t hire nerds! Talk to us about current affairs, sports, and politics. We have opinions and will engage in fun and stimulating conversations. Meetings can be long and boring, we don’t care to contribute to the boring part.
We are built on a very solid foundation. For twenty years we have been patient and deliberate in our growth and client base. We know clearly what our strengths are and how to scale each of them. We are now poised to grow and become the force in the profession that we have envisioned for so many years. We will now spread into surrounding markets both nationally and internationally. We clearly see ourselves as a prominent figure in the industry with highly skilled professionals in each satellite office. This vision drives our desire. This will happen.
We have always believed that our clients pay the bills but our relationships make us rich! We strive to associate ourselves with those whom we trust. Trust is the product of a successful relationship. Our constant goal is to be worthy of our clients’ trust. Then magic happens!
We believe that architects and engineers should be equally vested. Technology should enhance our abilities and be beneficial to all our clients. Sometimes it is needlessly overwhelming and unprofitable. We want to create a profitable business not a professional practice.
We have always embraced the idea that one $10/hour employee is worth far more than two $5/hour employees. We don’t make money off our employees but rather because of them. We don’t believe in a job by job compensation program. This stifles creativity and inspires selfishness. We want to be creative without the temptation of personal gain. We want the next generation at Dunn Associates to be better than the last.

Calling Salt Lake City Home
Forbes rated Utah as the #1 state with the biggest GDP growth in 2021. Additionally, US News and World Report ranked Utah as having the third best economy. Due to what is called the Lake Effect, Utah has “the greatest snow on Earth”, resulting in fourteen resorts – ten of which are within one hour of Salt Lake City. Despite the many ski resorts, Utah is also a desert that hosts five major national parks. Calling Utah home means there is always something to do, no matter the season.
