Job Summary:

You’d join a team that, pure and simple, keeps the property humming so our Guests can have fun. Some of our engineers are in “sustaining” roles, 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 engineers are considered “back-of-house” and are more project-oriented; 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. 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 two roles and work on different projects; sometimes they’re even called to assist at Disney Parks and Resorts around the globe.
