BRPH, a full service Architectural/Engineering Firm specializing in state of the art Facility design, is looking for an Electrical Engineer for our Huntsville, Alabama office. Huntsville, known as the “Rocket City” and home for defense and aerospace firms, is ranked by US News as the 7th best place to live out of 125 metro areas in the United States in 2018. Since the Saturn V took off, this former farming community has witnessed a major “high-tech growth spurt.” This futuristic city combines the best of both worlds, the awe-inspiring vistas of the Cumberland Plateau and Appalachian Range wait just beyond the digital and aeronautical structures of the city. The city is situated along the easternmost edges of the Tennessee River, with most of Huntsville’s perimeters falling to the slight south of Wheeler Lake. Over 40 Fortune 500 companies have offices in Huntsville, while global tech startups are becoming increasingly plentiful.
