MPR Associates, Inc. (MPR), a thriving multi-discipline, specialty engineering services and consulting firm founded in 1964, is seeking talented electrical engineers to join our dynamic team. If you have a strong academic background, desire to grow professionally, seek a rewarding career, and want to be engaged in important and technically challenging projects which benefit society, MPR may be the right company for you.


General Job Description

MPR has a wide and growing client base in the fields of power and energy, federal services, and health and life sciences, in the United States as well as internationally. Headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, we also have offices in East Lyme, Connecticut and Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

Candidates should be interested in electrical power systems and equipment, power systems analysis techniques, rotating electric machines, power electronics, metering, relaying, and control systems or designing hardware and software for various embedded platforms. Typical projects at MPR last from 2-12 months and are completed by project teams of 2-10 engineers. At any one point in time, a typical MPR engineer will be working on 2-3 projects simultaneously.

MPR regularly provides training opportunities – many of which occur on-the-job with senior engineers who are recognized industry-wide as experts in their fields. Some of MPR’s most interesting projects provide the opportunity to travel to client sites, test facilities or supplier’s facilities. Although employees are based out of one of our several offices, they should expect a moderate amount of travel based on the specific requirements of their projects. Expected career progression includes developing technical expertise as well as increasing responsibility for project management, supervision, client relations, and business development.

  • Strong analytical skills including the ability to problem solve
  • Aptitude to work outside of engineering discipline and quickly learn new concepts
  • Advanced computer skills preferred, including analysis programs such as MATLAB-Simulink®, ETAP, and EMTP

  • Ability to establish and maintain effective relationships with all levels of an organization
  • Persistent, questioning attitude and ability to accept that in others
