Vector Team Spotlight – Rabin Poudel

We are thrilled to spotlight a valued member of the Vector team – Rabin Poudel! Currently he is working as a Project Manager and Client Manager in the Orem, UT Office. Rabin is originally from Kathmandu, Nepal. He received his Masters of Science in Civil Engineering from University of Houston.

Rabin began his civil engineering with Undergrad studies from NIT in Durgapur, India. His early experience included a remarkable opportunity: contributing to the expansion of Nepal’s only international airport. Seeking further knowledge, Rabin pursued a Master’s degree in Structural Engineering at the University of Houston in the US. Following his studies, he gained diverse design experience, working on projects ranging from canopies and signs to wastewater structures. In late 2021, Rabin moved to Utah. Upon arrival, he interviewed with Vector and recognized in the first interview that this was a company he wanted to work for. He recently celebrated his two-year anniversary with Vector Engineering!

Rabin joined the Vector team in February 2022 and specializes in steel design. Recently, he was involved with a project that he is most proud of in his career. Rabin assisted in the design for an elevated walkway system inside a tank farm near Orlando, FL. Originally he was responsible for only the super-structure, but the external team responsible for the foundation had fallen short. The client was in a time crunch and asked Vector to step in. Rabin said, “we took it as a challenge, put our heads together and came up with a creative approach. We designed a system of outrigger beams and new shallow pour foundations and finally designed a system that worked for the client within the tight deadline.”

Rabin is enthusiastic about food, both eating and cooking. He has an equal passion for music and plays guitar in a band. They play regularly at a local restaurant and also at other programs and music festivals. Rabin is also a public relations officer in a non-profit called the Nepalese Association of Utah, which does a lot of community events to help preserve Nepali culture. In his free time, he loves to watch movies, read, and travel as well.

“Within minutes of my first interview, I knew this was a company I wanted to work for.”
