LJA is a known leader in flood control and drainage. If it involves H2O, we have the experts to collect, control, convey, channel, and construct it.
Our engineers provide comprehensive planning, design, and modeling technology that drives transportation and keeps people on the move where they live, work, and play.
We are committed to providing real value at every step of the construction process on communication, timelines, schedules, milestones, and budgets.
An internship with LJA is a minimum of eight weeks, beginning in mid-late May. During your time with LJA, you will learn about the sectors within LJA – Land Development, Transportation, Central Texas Infrastructure, Public Works, Energy, Environmental, Surveying, and Rail. In addition to these robust sectors, we also have an in-house Corporate Division that includes Marketing, Accounting, Human Resources, Facilities and Real Estate Management, and Information Technology opportunities.
Over the course of my internship at LJA, I was able to work with so many incredible people and on several eye-opening projects. From project managers to graduate engineers, everyone was down-to-earth and helpful. Being my first internship, the group I worked with really set the standard for what a healthy office environment looks like. And I can truly say that this internship has been an incredible experience.

The LJA ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) is an employee-owner program that can help you generate wealth and provides employees with a stake in LJA’s success. Based on the success of LJA’s prior year, a contribution is made to the employee-owner’s ESOP account.
ach year, employees may have an increase in their ESOP account due to a change in value of LJA stock. Additionally, LJA’s ESOP plan vests at 20% each year, meaning after each year of service 20% of the funds are the employees and after five years of employment 100% of the funds are the employees. Months worked during an internship can count toward the ESOP vesting period.
A 401k match is an employer’s contribution, matching a portion of the funds the employee contributes. An ESOP contribution is 100% provided by LJA. LJA employee-owners do not need to contribute funds to the ESOP to get an employer contribution.
