Built with Love. We'd Be Nothing without the Heart Our Employees Bring.

February 7, 2023

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and love is in the air! We believe an essential component of our success is employing the right people. We work hard to find A-players. Though recruiting and retaining employees who design, plan, and build with absolute care and precision [and love doing it!] is no small task, it’s one we’re committed to. We invest heavily in employee culture. This means we treat our employees well. We respect them as people and respect their personal time. We pay at or above the local industry standards, offer a substantial benefits package, and ensure employees feel supported to learn and grow in their crafts and have opportunities to grow with Highline.

We check-in with our employees to see how we’re doing and where we can improve. This happens formally through stay surveys and annual employee meetings, but it also happens informally during employee gatherings, twice monthly office-to-field lunch deliveries, and in the regular day-to-day conversations. In the spirit of St. Valentine, a number of our employees recently told us what they love about working at Highline and/or what they love about their craft. Here’s what they said:

“I love working in a field where I get to work with a team and am blessed to be surrounded by great people at this company.” ~Aaron | Carpenter


“I love working at Highline because we have so many talented and caring folks on our team. I enjoy working with clients in the design process, and, because of our great team, I always feel confident clients will be in good hands once the project breaks ground.” ~Allison | Architect

“I love being able to mentor the next generation of craftsmen, and working at Highline gives me the opportunity to do that.” ~ Brent | Production Manager


“I love making customers dreams come to reality by shaping the earth. It brings instant gratification to me and to the customer when the finished product is complete.” ~ Jason | Civil Site Superintendent


“I love civil construction because I get to be a big kid in a giant sandbox with real Tonka trucks. I also love the variety of projects, being outside, and the satisfaction of seeing what I’ve built. I love working at Highline because of the enthusiasm, the supportive culture, and the ‘let’s do this and figure out a way to do it better’ attitude.” ~ Levi | Civil Production Manager


“I love the freedom to be creative.” ~ Mike | Construction Site Superintendent


“I love working for Highline because everyone in the company is fun to work with and has respect for one another. We get to work on fun projects, challenge ourselves, and every day holds something new.” ~ Noah | Construction Site Superintendent


“I love that Highline respects differences and fosters belonging. Equally important, Highline is an incredibly family-friendly place to work.” ~ Tera | Office Manager


“I love working at Highline because I get to experience my creativity through my craft.” ~ Yuseph | Construction Site Superintendent/Finish Foreman


How’s that for warm fuzzies? We’re so glad to have the amazing team we do. They make Highline possible and we are so grateful.
