No bureaucracy.  Apex was founded on the principles of agility and employee empowerment, and we’ve worked hard over the past 25+ years to build a culture of collaboration, communication, and opportunity.   That’s our secret to success, plain and simple.

We get it.  You’re looking for growth opportunity in a high-energy environment.  You want to work with the best minds in the business and for a company that cares about your professional development.  And while you might be okay with some routine, you’d really like a role that includes new challenges, stretching you just enough to help you grow.

You get it.  As a Project Scientist, you’re a serious multi-tasker who lends your technical expertise and business savvy to the success of every project.  You work hard to exceed client expectations for quality and cost-effectiveness, and you coordinate project activities to complete every project on time and within budget.  At the end of the workday, you go home very satisfied knowing you’ve delivered solutions to clients that depend on you to resolve problems that range from very simple to very complex.

  • Contribute to development of proposals and budgets.
  • Write and review technical reports and proposals.
  • Assist with project management activities.
  • Mentor and train scientific staff and supervise work.
  • Provide peer review for colleagues.
  • Actively develop your own career growth
