Oklahoma Leidos locations look to hire 65

As a flagship for the company's engineering business, the Oklahoma City office is looking to fill architecture, engineering and design-build positions along with project management and technical positions for its oil-and-gas team.

One of the openings in Oklahoma City is for a BIM manager. SAIC, Helms said, is the third largest firm in the country in BIM, which is building information modeling, which creates three-dimensional databases of construction projects.

The future Leidos also is hiring for a $300 million, 82-acre development near Charlotte, N.C.; most of the preliminary design work has come out of the Oklahoma City office.

Closer to home, the office is providing engineering, procurement and construction services under a $118 million contract to design and construct an ammonia plant and associated facilities for Oklahoma City-based LSB Industries in El Dorado, Ark.; and engineering, procurement and construction of a Holly Refining and Marketing gas oil loading system in a $2.1 million project in Tulsa.
