TESTIMONIALS

"The creativity inherent in engineering separates the mediocre from the excellent."


Paul Faget, Principal

"I’m given the autonomy to do what I was hired to do: be an engineer and work with great colleagues and clients!"


Robert Henry, SSF Staff

"As a young engineer, SSF is a great place to grow and learn. It is also the definition of work-life balance."


Joanna Klimczak, SSF Staff

"SSF is equitable and truly values the happiness of their employees.  This is evident in the retention rate…people that work here stay here!  We get great bonuses, time and a half for overtime, 401k contributions and pay nothing for health care."


Brian Rittereiser, SSF Staff

"At SSF, the entire team is valued, from support staff to IT to CAD to technical staff. They provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere in which to excel. And almost as important ... who wouldn’t like a dog-friendly office?"


Heidi Maki, SSF Staff

"It is rare to find a company that doesn’t pigeon-hole employees into a certain project type for the sake of 'efficiency'.  SSF promotes diverse work experiences to help employees grow in their careers."


Zane Kanyer, Associate Principal

"SSF is unique in that we compete with both the big and small firms. We are your one-stop shop for structural engineering services. Not many firms can say that."


Brian Richter, SSF Staff

"We don't take the stuffed shirt approach to solving problems."


Rob Galus, Principal

"I like working here because of the great people, great leadership, fun projects, project variety, Tacoma location…great atmosphere. I keep working here for the same reasons. SSF is easy going, but super productive."


Tony Williamson, SSF Staff

"It’s a pleasure working with this clever bunch…"


Joe Dixon, SSF Staff

"SSF hits it out-of-the-park with communication and creative design."


Blaze Bresko, Principal

"Alternate Transportation Supported!  SSF has bike racks and a shower for bicycle commuters!"


Dan Morrow, Principal

"SSF Engineers have a high level of responsibility on projects and are empowered to make important decisions and come up with creative solutions. We are not just plugging and chugging through calculations we’ve done 100 times."


Brian Rittereiser, SSF Staff

"I get paid to do what I love to do, what I believe I have been made to do, for my friends and with my friends.  If that isn’t motivation, I don’t know what is…"


Ryan Reichman, Principal

“I love getting up in the morning to go to a place where I love the people I work with. I am fascinated with the young, smart minds that work here and feel that I learn as much from them as they learn from me; and at the same time privileged to work with those that have been with us for many years. I have often heard that we 'don’t seem like engineers,' well that is just fine with me.  We are 'engineers-for-the-people' - we can work with anyone.”


Dan Say, Principal

"We allow people to be themselves.  I’m proud of the people we have and the work that we do every day."


Chardie Byrne, Principal

"I appreciate the company's community involvement, not only through their radio sponsorships with KUOW and KEXP, but their commitment to AIA, Design In Public, Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, SMPS and more."


Heidi Maki, SSF Staff

"I like working here because I have the freedom to explore my ideas. I came here because the opportunities for growth are unparalleled, and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. I stay here because my coworkers are awesome, you can’t beat the perks and there’s a constant effort by SSF leadership to make things even better. Shareholders wholeheartedly support my volunteer efforts – and I get volunteer PTO!"


Sean King, Associate Principal

"When I was in grad school, I had a few classes with an SSF employee. He and I had similar personalities and he thought I would be a good fit. I love the work and the opportunity to design almost every project type you could imagine, from residential to retrofits to climbing gyms. I've been here since 2004, and am now fortunate enough to be a shareholder. I think he was right!"


Zane Kanyer, Associate Principal

"Here's a quote I saw recently. 'God made structural engineers so architects can have heroes too.' "


Tony Williamson, SSF Staff

"SSF Engineers all work on a variety of wood, steel, masonry and concrete projects.  It is pretty special to get that kind of breadth of experience."


Brian Rittereiser, SSF Staff

"I love the project variety and the people I get to work with. I also love the laid-back work environment and the satisfaction I get from finishing projects – I get to do that a lot here."


Brian Richter, SSF Staff

"I look forward to going to SSF every morning. Our efforts are targeted toward producing the best work product possible for our clients. To do that, we focus on creating a work environment that fosters creativity and happiness among employees. That may mean wearing shorts and a t-shirt to work or bringing your dog. Being as comfortable and happy as we can be allows us to produce the best work possible. I believe this shows in our product."


Brett Mozden, Associate Principal

"We challenge our staff to push their own limits as much as they can."


Gary Swenson, Principal
