Reporting to the Director of Project Management, you will be responsible for the mechanical design and project management of our mechanical design/build jobs and serve as a key advisor to leadership.

You'll work closely with estimators and with field operations to assure seamless communication throughout the life of the project with no "gray areas" regarding who has which responsibilities. We'll look to you to create an environment that fosters a mindset focused on profitable growth through Lean Construction processes.

Your design engineering expertise will be essential, but just as important will be your leadership and interpersonal skills. You'll need to develop a solid, positive rapport with our outsourced partner -- you'll manage that relationship and ensure they deliver to expectations, but you also should ensure ongoing collaboration, even as you build the internal function. You also should establish relationships as with internal contacts in estimating, project management and other areas. For example, you'll interact regularly with our BIM Specialist.

We realize that there will be a learning curve as you come on board, but we'll also expect you to leverage your experience and expertise to start making contributions right away. The pace is fast and stress can run high at times. Those who thrive at AMSI are cool-headed and able to manage multiple tasks and shifting priorities. While you'll "own" and articulate the mechanical design engineering big picture, you also should pay attention to details.
