Senior Project Architect/Manager


US Bank Stadium, One World Trade Center, the Louvre – you could have managed those in your sleep. You coined the phrase, “The buck stops here.” Your clients love you so much they take you on vacation. You thrive on detail, you crush deadlines, and you’re such a great multi-tasker that you’re reading this while tuning up your motorcycle.

You want to lead, and reap the profits of your efforts, and work with some of the most creative, fun and progressive people in our industry, and eat chocolate-covered potato chips. Guess what? We have the job for you.

JLG Architects is seeking a Senior Project Architect/Manager. Not just any Senior Project Architect/Manager, mind you.

A JLG Senior Project Architect/Manager:

- Is the backbone, the brain and the heart of a JLG’s most complex, large-scale projects. A JLG Senior Project Manager coordinates the entire project team, leads internal and external meetings, is the day-to-day contact for the client and keeps the budget and schedule online.
- Has an advanced understanding of materials and methods. Engineering? Check. Construction? Check. Codes, materials, latest building trends? Check, check, check.
- Delivers. Speaking of checks, a JLG Senior Project Manager is responsible for the execution of the JLG Project Checklist, our tried-and-true standards and processes guidelines.
- Leads. A JLG Senior Project Architect/Manager makes independent decisions and empowers his or her teammates while also managing difficult conversations (contract enforcement, contingency, etc).

A few more attributes of a future JLG-er:

- You are deeply experienced. You must be a registered architect and provide a minimum of two professional recommendations that speak to your ability to lead large-scale, complex projects.
- You must understand technology. You need to be proficient in both Revit and AutoCad, and proficient in building technology.
- You know what it means to be a self-motivated leader. JLG can trust you to serve as the main point of client contact from beginning to end, and then some. Your can-do outlook and willingness to do what it takes garners the respect and confidence of your peers and project team. You own budgets and schedules.
- You are engaged. You are an enthusiastic community steward and volunteer.
- You are ready to apply. Visit and suit up for the first day of the rest of your life.
