Engineering Project Manager

The Role

The Engineering Project Manager will manage all aspects of the installation and construction planning and build-out of Bowery’s high-tech vertical farms and critical subsystems.  This role will work day to day with Bowery’s systems engineering team as well as an ecosystem of subcontractors and installation teams to define the scope, budget and timeline of each installation, and then manage it through to completion. Between installations you’ll also help to manage major farm subsystem redesigns as we continually improve our farm designs.  This opportunity will be based in the NYC area.

What you’ll do at Bowery

  • Be responsible for the on-time and on-budget installation of Bowery farms, including compiling and maintaining each installation’s scope, timeline, budgets, vendor/contractor list, and bill of materials
  • Project manage systems engineering redesigns of important farm subsystems (lighting, irrigation, HVAC, etc), ensuring that design requirements are clearly defined and progress stays on track
  • Coordinate the day to day efforts of the Bowery team and all external subcontractors and vendors during each installation or redesign process, pushing through roadblocks and ensuring tight coordination
  • Manage subcontractor bidding and negotiations processes and build positive relationships with the external parties involved in each installation
  • Understand the intricacies and interdependent elements for each installation and use this knowledge to accurately estimate and publish project costs and labor hours
  • Ensure that appropriate documentation, permitting and regulatory inspections are obtained and kept up to date
  • Provide regular progress and budget updates to the senior Bowery leadership team, and work with the systems engineering team to find creative ways to shorten timelines and lower installation budgets
  • Work with the head of farm development to scope and build out timelines for subsystem improvement projects

Who you are

  • You have a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Construction Management, or Operations, or equivalent experience
  • You have 6-8+ years of experience in technical project management, including experience with construction and/or retrofit of manufacturing or logistics facilities, and you have managed projects from requirements definition and scoping through design, build, and commissioning
  • You are familiar with construction and manufacturing documentation and permitting requirements (bonus if you are also familiar with food safety regulations)
  • You have exceptional attention to detail, and can recommend and fluently use tools for managing project scope, schedule and budget
  • You are able to consolidate inputs from a variety of engineering and non-engineering sources to produce clearly communicated project scope documents
  • You have extensive experience maximizing the efficiency and output of subcontractors, consulting engineers, and installation GCs and teams
  • You have a proactive, hands-on personality, are comfortable in highly dynamic environments and can react calmly and effectively in an emergency
  • You’re an excellent oral and written communicator
  • You believe that teams succeed and fail together and take responsibility for ensuring the success and satisfaction of your teammates
