Posted on: January 15, 2023

Job Description:

Sambatek, Inc. is a professional services firm that specializes in engineering, planning, surveying, and environmental services. We serve public and private clients throughout Minnesota, Texas, and across the country. We embrace challenging projects and work hard to help our clients find success. As a people-first employer, we offer flexible work schedules and the opportunity to choose your work location- remote or in-office- as your work allows.

The Opportunity

Our Land Development team is hiring! Our Residential team works on a variety of projects with local and national homebuilders and developers, while our Commercial team works on under 1-acre to 100s of acres - industrial, retail, multifamily, and more. Our staff also receives training in all facets of project design: site design, grading, stormwater management, utility design, etc.

The Associate Project Manager position is an opportunity to work directly with clients and the other project disciplines by assisting an experienced Project Manager. The Associate Project Manager role also receives mentoring on management tasks: navigating entitlements, client interactions, marketing/business development, scheduling, invoicing, development of budgets, and more.

You will have an opportunity to continue to strengthen your design experience while gaining new management experience. You'll work on challenging projects - learning to navigate the entitlement and design processes on large-scale multiphase developments. This role serves as a transition from Project Engineer to Project Manager. This is a tremendous opportunity for the right person to help continue the expansion of our Land Development team.
