The successful candidate will support Iconergy’s senior engineers in project development by gathering data from on-site audits, performing engineering calculations for efficiency and facility improvement measures, designing HVAC and plumbing systems in CAD, and performing energy modeling and reporting.

You will work on retrofit projects that improve facility operations, especially energy and/or water efficiency. Our projects also incorporate renewable energy whenever possible. The projects often address the following systems: HVAC, lighting, controls, water fixtures, ancillary systems and equipment (distributed generation, cooking kitchens, pools, etc.), and renewable energy (solar PV, solar thermal, etc.). These projects improve the occupancy conditions inside the facilities while reducing operating and maintenance costs and the use of natural resources.

Projects most often located in the Rocky Mountain region (especially Colorado and surrounding states) and, at times, elsewhere.


  • Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical or Architectural Engineering. Other degrees may be considered with appropriate work experience.
  • 2-5 years of work experience in HVAC design, energy engineering, or similar consulting engineering work.
  • Understanding of building systems (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, architectural, structural).
  • Hold an Engineer In Training (EIT) certificate or Certified Energy Manager (CEM) or have ability to pass FE test within a few years.
  • Demonstrated excellence in communication (written and oral) in English.
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office required


  • Prior energy audit and energy modeling experience is a plus.
  • Experience with Microsoft Excel VBA, AutoCAD/Revit, and energy modeling software (eQUEST, Trane Trace, Energy Plus) preferred.

The ideal candidate will also fulfill the following:

  • Pass NCIC background check (required).

  • Analyze efficiency measures for utility savings.
  • Perform energy modeling with energy plus software.
  • Perform design calculations for HVAC and plumbing systems.
  • Draft HVAC and plumbing systems in AutoCAD or Revit.
