The City of Bellevue, Washington is rapidly maturing from a sleepy suburb into a tech centric, vibrant, and diverse metropolitan city within the Puget Sound Region. The city's planning team is looking for creative planners with the technical expertise to help us shape and catalyze positive change. This position requires you, the candidate to have a curious mind, technical prowess, research skills, an open, mature, and an inclusive view of prevailing social issues. We also need a demonstrated willingness to think beyond the usual or ordinary.

  • This position is part of our Comprehensive Planning Team.

You will be expected to have the ability to explain in simple terms complicated issues in highly charged public settings.
