Tree-lined streets and a small village atmosphere characterize Los Altos, which is located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Just 40 miles south of San Francisco and 17 miles north of San Jose, Los Altos is an upscale residential community which blends a distinctive community-oriented character with the proximity and influence of the Bay Area’s cultural, recreational, and business attractions. Many Silicon Valley executives, managers and engineers choose to live in this City of over 30,700 because of its attractive climate, outstanding school districts, lovely neighborhoods and charming downtown.
The Engineering Services Director (ESD) is an at will position and a member of the City's Executive Team. The ESD will oversee the City’s engineering programs including: Capital Improvement Program (CIP), Transportation Services, Construction Inspection, Real Property Management and Land Development.
