About Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility

Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF) is filling entry level engineering and business administration positions for interested and qualified civilian students with majors in: Business Administration, Engineering, Naval Architecture and the Physical Sciences.

PSNS & IMF is located near Seattle, Washington and is operated by the United Sates Navy to overhaul, modernize, and maintain naval vessels such as aircraft carriers and submarines. The majority of the employees, including approximately 2,000 engineers, are civilian. Engineers at PSNS & IMF work on projects involving testing, vibration analysis, maintenance, overhaul, repair, and modernization of combat systems, communication equipment, navigation systems, propulsion systems, ship structures, and nuclear reactor plants. The Shipyard accomplishes over 2 million man-days of work at a cost of over $2 billion dollars a year in maintenance and repair of the Navy’s submarine force and carrier fleet. Our Business and Strategic Planning Department are responsible for planning, scheduling, workload forecasting, financial projections and fiscal accounting of all the work to be accomplished at the shipyard.

A portion of the work requires travel to many places around the world with the majority of the travel being in San Diego California and Yokosuka Japan. A uniquely rewarding experience. We offer competitive pay, generous vacation benefits, an excellent retirement system, federal health benefits, and ten paid holidays each year. Candidates should look forward to further development of their leadership, teamwork, and communication skills while working in the pristine Puget Sound area.

Shipyard facilities include over 355 buildings, eight piers, a 250-ton capacity hammerhead crane, and a five-acre inside machine shop. One of the Shipyard's six dry-docks is the Navy's largest. These facilities give the Shipyard the capacity of performing industrial activities ranging from delicate instrument repair to aircraft carrier construction. As Washington State's second largest industrial facility, PSNS & IMF has over 10,000 employees.
