Job Summary:

The Automotive Project Manager works within the Production and engineering team to bring new products to market. The Automotive Project Manager will be responsible for ensuring projects are completed within the target schedule, meets company quality/performance standards and meets project budgets. The Automotive Project Manager will report directly to the Production Manager.

Scope of Responsibility:

This position works primarily independently but will utilize members of the production team and other departments as resources.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Develop and maintain a detailed roadmap to ensure on-time delivery of your product within budget. On-time, on-budget, great.  Early, and under-budget, boss!
  • Orchestrate the entire product life-cycle team (R&D, Testing, Marketing, Production, Sourcing & Logistics) to get your product to market.
  • Coordinate with affiliates, domestic suppliers and international suppliers to ensure product quality and on-time delivery.
  • The files are in the computer. Maintain and update all databases, accounting records, and on-line tools related to make sure our rads are in a row.
  • Provide weekly updates to the Product Team on your product status. Are you on-track or off-track (and how will you get back in gear?).   
  • Use stellar networking skills to find the perfect test vehicle available during the production schedule. Sometimes you have to pound the pavement and expertly schmooze to find and convince a vehicle owner to part with their baby.
  • Regularly report to management on project status. Surprises and project management don’t go hand-in-hand.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a business-related discipline is preferred.
  • 1-2 years’ experience in a related field, such as Project Management is preferred.
  • 1-2 years’ prior experience in an engineering-related environment, such as manufacturing, automotive or industrial.
  • Basic understanding of automotive cooling systems and performance parts preferred.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

  • Industrial Design: If T6-6061 Aluminum is a material in your mental toolbox, this position is for you.
  • Collaborating, communicating, negotiating, and teaming with people. It’s not only about product management, but people management too.  It takes a team to get the product right and ready on time. 
  • Listening to all stakeholders and accepting constructive feedback to make the best product possible.
  • Impeccable organization and schedule management, juggling multiple projects simultaneously. You’re our project manager.
  • Problem solving. Sometimes your donor vehicle crashes at the track the weekend before shop time. The show must go on. 
  • Fine-tuning small details without losing sight of the big picture. One missed key punch in a SKU could delay your project.  One missed component could throw a wrench in quality.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills. You interact with customers, vendors, and suppliers. Your professional skills are critical for keeping projects rolling. 

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Reading Engineering Drawings.
  • International Project Experience.
