The Colorado Department of Transportation is currently hiring across the state!  We advertise a wide variety of jobs, from entry-level to executives.  Most common are our Highway Maintenance Specialists that plow snow and maintain the roadways and our Civil Engineers that design roadways and oversee construction.  We also hire for a wide variety of other technical and professional jobs.  

We have an ongoing need for temporary and permanent Highway Maintenance  Specialists across the State.  These positions require a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), class A or B, a passion for public safety, and two years of heavy equipment operation and/or labor experience. The typical starting salary for our Permanent Highway Maintenance Workers is $3,266 a month, with extensive benefits, possible housing stipend (depending on location), and are eligible for a 5% increase after a year.

Temporary Highway Maintenance Specialists start at $23 an hour, or  $1,993 biweekly (based on 40 hours work week). Our Temporary positions work for CDOT for 9 months or less. 

In addition, we're hiring for a few entry-level Highway Maintenance Trainee positions focused on learning about CDOT's maintenance operations while pursuing a Class A or B CDL.
