LiDar Surveyor Job Opportunity

Special Operations Team

Do you have solid As-Built Surveying experience, AutoCAD/Revit drafting skills, a dedicated understanding of building construction, and want to work for a growing As-Built company with a 2025 mission of strategic expansion across the country?

We are looking for a full-time LiDAR Surveyor to strengthen our Special Operations Team! With 20 years in business, PPM is one of the largest and most successful As-Built surveying companies in America, delivering around 2,000 projects per year to our clients in the AEC industry. Are you ready to make your mark in an industry leading As-Built company?


You’re an expert. You’ve been working in the AEC industry for a while and are familiar with the workflows and challenges of renovation projects. You’ve seen firsthand how As-Built surveys are created and understand their importance to remodel projects. You have “in the field” building measurement experience and a strong working knowledge of AutoCAD and Revit.

You’re a connector. You have an ability to easily connect with others, including clients, vendors, and employees. You have great networking, and communication skills. You can clearly and concisely articulate your thoughts through email, and you don’t hesitate to make a phone call when you think a real conversation will yield a better result. You find immense value in listening to others – especially clients and your team.

You speak Architecture! You are able to speak the language of our clients, and almost as importantly, the language of your team to ensure you have everything you need in terms of materials and workflow for a project to be successful.

You’re service oriented. You have a strong passion for producing quality work and for providing great service to others. Getting the job done right, on-time and being proud of your team’s excellent work is your motivation!

You’re a problem solver. When situations come up, you act quickly and focus on solutions instead of blame. You see all points of view and make confident decisions that are fair to all involved.

You’re organized. You utilize time management skills and processes to balance a heavy workload both in the field and off. You enjoy creating order out of chaos and making sensible plans for yourself and your team. You can easily adapt and prioritize to keep your focus on the most important items.

You’re energetic! You thrive in a fast-paced, professional environment. Your energy and positive attitude uplifts and motivates others around you
