The Northern CA Transportation Project Manager will work closely with senior staff in ESA’s Northern California Region to expand our growing transportation environmental practice. Primary responsibilities involve preparing/managing transportation related CEQA/NEPA and other environmental documents and studies; supporting the preparation of proposals responding to RFPs/RFQs; managing ESA analysts and sub consultants to prepare environmental documents and related technical studies. The position will also involve mentoring/supervising 1-2 Associate staff; working directly with public and private-sector clients and stakeholders; and assisting with overall Group administration. The role involves direct client interaction, proactive business development, involvement with professional development organizations, and preparing competitive proposals in response to RFPs/RFQs.
The position involves managing existing task order contracts, taking on existing work on multi-modal projects, and providing continuity with existing clients and building from that base.
The Transportation Project Manager will support the sustainability and climate change mitigation and resiliency parts of the practice as well.
ESA pursues and works on a diverse set of transportation projects, from complete streets and active transportation and trails, to complex transit, highway and bridge projects. In addition, ESA has a robust climate change practice that supports projects addressing climate adaptation and resiliency for transportation assets. ESA also provides sustainability services to communities and transportation agencies in the forms of sustainability plans, GHG emission reduction strategies, and Envision certification for projects. ESA holds several on calls with transportation agencies in the bay area and in Sacramento and has strong relationships with other firms to provide environmental services for engineering projects. We also provide environmental mitigation monitoring services to some of the largest transportation constructions projects in Northern California.
Project opportunities for the successful candidate would span all facets of ESA’s Transportation practice, but would focus on interdisciplinary, multi-modal transportation projects and evaluating their environmental impacts and benefits across the Northern California region.
As a result of ESA’s strategic growth, our northern California Transportation Practice is seeking to add an experienced project manager to our team. This position will be a key leader in our expanding Northern California transportation practice, based out of ESA’s Oakland or San Francisco office and reporting to the Transportation Director for the Northern California region.
