If you’re reading this, you already know what it means to be a Sr. Civil Engineer. But can you imagine using your skills at a place like Disney? At Walt Disney World Resorts, you’d work to support all the theme parks, waterparks, golf courses, destination shopping districts, resorts, and all the support facilities that are spread out across over 29,000 acres. The breadth of experiences and opportunities to learn are nearly limitless, and you would reap the satisfaction of knowing that your work has direct impact on keeping families safe while they’re having fun.

It’s a given that our Sr. Civil Engineers have the technical expertise to do their jobs well. We’re looking for professionals who are thirsty for diverse experiences, who are eager to learn and who are confident they can maintain the exacting standards for which The Walt Disney Company is revered. If this sounds like you, please apply today!

This position will report to the Manager, Programs-Infrastructure & Planning.


You’d join a team that, pure and simple, keeps the property humming so our Guests can have fun. Our engineers’ work satisfies multiple needs. One day they may be acting in a “sustaining” role, which means they are “first responders” when issues arise; they’re also tasked with supporting ongoing maintenance and control. They must possess the technical knowledge to recognize when a problem is developing and the confidence to initiate immediate action. Other days they may be more project-oriented, working on planned renovations identified as a part of the ongoing improvement; they often work with Disney’s famous Imagineers on designing civil engineering infrastructure or providing subject matter expertise through peer review for new or refurbished attractions. Other days they are developing strategies and programs for the ongoing maintenance and enhancement of the infrastructure assets. These professionals must be adept at creating new civil site, utility, and transportation infrastructure and at improving existing systems with operational and reliability enhancements.

All of our engineers are encouraged to move between the three roles and work on different projects; sometimes they’re even called to assist at Disney Parks and Resorts around the globe.
