  • Start to own all new construction projects in-region and significant ownership of active projects in-region

  • Managing the smooth progression of each construction project from the engineering and permitting phase to installation and commissioning of the stations
  • Driving the scope, schedule and budget for your projects with a growing awareness of cost implications and developing solutions which benefit the bottom line
  • Managing the financial plan by consistently evaluating the project budget; reviewing and approving construction bids and change orders throughout the construction process
  • Forecasting, scheduling deployment, and managing all components of highly complex installations
  • Providing support as needed to general contractors during all phases of construction
  • Evaluating new technology and helping decide how we continue to improve our charging stations and the overall customer experience
  • Exercising ownership of not just individual sites but the overall portfolio of projects within your region
  • Keeping all stakeholders aligned and aware on the progress of all station by submitting regular project reports

  • Organization skills and the ability to plan ahead and multitask in order to meet deadlines and keep projects under budget
  • Comfort with significant driving time (this is required in this role)
  • An appreciation for traveling regularly (50%-75%); you’ll be spending time on each site throughout the deployment and installation process
  • A meticulous eye for project details and a diligence in finding solutions: you can easily point to a track record of success in this area
  • Excitement for a work environment that requires changing pace, redirecting your thinking, and embracing new procedures
