Are you the subject matter expert when it comes to the ins and outs of all things Fire Sprinkler? If the answer is yes, you're in luck because we are looking for an experienced Design Engineer that doesn't only know how to use SprinkCAD but knows the parts and smarts behind the design and build of these systems.


As part of Encore's mission to be the best fire protection company the industry has ever seen, we have recently joined forces with Life Safety Fire Protection based out of Dublin, NH. This partnership not only allows us to expand our footprint and find top talent in the NH area, it also allows us to work with industry leaders who strive for same level of excellence as we do.


What You Will Be Doing:

  • Prepare fire protection design drawings using SprinkCAD with HydraCADD overlay
  • Perform field surveys on active construction sites
  • Attend project management meetings (off site if necessary) to facilitate project completion in consideration of timeline and budget
  • Develop 2- and 3-dimensional plans for fire alarm systems

What You Will Need to Do it:

  • Working knowledge of SprinkCAD
  • Ability to read and interpret architectural & mechanical engineering drawings/blueprints
  • Willingness to go to construction sites and complete surveys to identify possibly code issues and apply solutions
  • Strong desire to work in a team setting
  • Effective communication skills both written and verbal are required
  • 3-5 years of Fire sprinkler system design experience
  • Basic knowledge of HydraCad a plus but not required
  • Ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines


  • Experience and/or education in the construction industry is preferred but if you don’t have that, all we ask is for you to show up with a positive, "can-do" attitude, and genuine interest in learning our industry
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office is a non-negotiable must as well an overall aptitude for embracing new technology
  • Self-starter with the ability to work both independently and within a team environment
  • The position requires above average attention to details, concern for the exact correctness of work, and strong commitment to tasks completed on time.
  • Drivers license and access to reliable transportation. This position will regularly bring you out of the office, either to job sites or to building departments around the state


As a company, Encore is hyper-focused on developing a culture that thrives on success and is energized by the fact that we get to make peoples' lives better and safer each day. One of the ways we do this is by generously rewarding all those who contribute to our continued growth. But we also believe that not all rewards are monetary. Here are just a few a few perks that a successful individual in this role can expect:

  • Salary commensurate with experience with opportunity for a results-driven bonus based on personal output and effectiveness in role
  • Purpose and results driven work environment (work smarter not harder)
  • We dress for the objective which means most days we wear jeans but occasionally we wear suits. As long as you know which situations require which (or aren't afraid to ask), you'll be all set!
  • Speaking of attire, we offer all employees Encore gear when they join the team
  • Freedom to express ideas - a culture of willingness to test, try, modify, adopt, enhance, improve and CHANGE as needed
  • Access to leading edge web-based productivity tools
  • Participation in Fidelity 401(K) that includes employer match
  • Medical, Dental, and Vision benefits through Blue Cross
  • Company-paid life insurance policy of $50,000
