At Jacobs, we're creating solutions to deliver a more connected, sustainable world. “Together, we are building a new Jacobs; inclusive of diverse people, capabilities and perspectives. We are winning in the marketplace, capturing attractive growth opportunities for complex work we are uniquely positioned to perform.”, Steve Demetriou, Chair and CEO.

Jacobs is a company like no other. The world needs innovators and problem solvers who turn challenges into greater opportunities. We have an insatiable curiosity about transformative trends challenging the status quo: Urbanization, Water scarcity, Climate change, Digital proliferation, Security. These issues inspire us to dig deeper and apply big data analytics to fully understand the interplay of multifaceted variables shaping the future, ensuring that we conceive and deliver solutions that connect people and places with the means to work smarter and live better, and make an enduring, positive difference in the world.

Robust infrastructure establishes the backbone of productive, economically strong communities as assets essential to commerce, trade, public safety and quality of life. What if...we told you that just to meet 2030 growth forecasts, we need to invest $3.3 trillion in infrastructure globally? That by 2035, Americans will spend an average of 160 hours a year stuck in traffic due to insufficient infrastructure? That if we continue what we’re doing today, there will not be enough water in the world to quench the thirst of the world population and keep current energy and power solutions going by 2040?

When it comes to designing investible infrastructure that addresses the big issues we face in the world—unprecedented urbanization, catastrophic climate threats and both human and natural resources constraints, there’s no partner more capable than us – after all, Engineering News-Record just named us the No. 1 Firm on their Top 500 Design Firms list for the second consecutive year.

Our Mission is to be the world's premier design, engineering, construction and technical services firm delivering end-to-end innovative solutions that provide superior value to our clients. Our values stand on a foundation of safety, integrity, inclusion and diversity. People are the heart of our business. Clients are our valued partners. Performance excellence is our commitment, and profitable growth is an imperative.

Jacobs is a strong supporter of WTS, locally (Boston), nationally, and internationally. Strategic Boston office hires were and will continue to be recruited because of their active WTS-Boston leadership roles. The firm is committed to the advancement of women, best exhibited by the percentage of female employees in leadership positions. In fact, Jacobs’ Boston office has significant numbers of women in every leadership category, atypical in our industry.

Jacobs participation in Catalyst CEO Champions for Change, underscores commitment, starting from the top to improve Jacobs’ record of advancing females up the ranks. The firm developed a formal Women’s Network to promote an inclusive culture, where women and men can thrive and feel valued.  Its mission is to accelerate a cultural shift by empowering women and promoting gender equality, aiming to balance representation, influence recruitment, development, retention and promotion of qualified women, and to champion women leaders. Jacobs also supports female employees by encouraging active participation in external professional organizations focusing on career advancement, structured around inclusion, diversity, and conscious inclusion programs.
