Now Seeking Project Managers!

READ MORE

D9 currently has outstanding opportunities for new Project Managers! The right candidate will have a background in Construction, Distribution or Materials Management. Construction Management Graduate, or equivalent experience, is strongly preferred.

Why this job exists:

Project Management is technically defined as “the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria”.  In essence, this is administration and management of a project for its complete life cycle.  Division 9 Flooring’s business is Projects.

At D9, our Project Managers are the frontline – our PMs demonstrate excellence from initial pricing to procurement to final warranty walk, from bid instructions through contract requirements at all phases of a project, whether it’s an entry mat or a 40-story mixed use tower in the Emerald City.  We conduct ourselves according to the D9 Core Values of Project Management.  Take a glance — it’s a serious commitment that means we need seriously committed people!

The Nuts and Bolts:

* PMs become a primary point of administrative, technical and management contact for internal and external project needs. A PM is ultimately responsible for successful execution of assigned projects.

* PMs perform job-related functions in MS Dynamics management system, Excel, Word and Outlook.

* PMs evaluate client needs and propose services throughout a project lifecycle, and proactively as a long-term client partner.

* PMs communicate key job information amongst teams as necessary to ensure deadlines for bidding, executing and closing a project are met.

* PMs review scope with designated estimating team to flag issues and opportunities. Review pricing and build detailed final budget to assure accuracy in line item detail. Submit complete proposal packages to clients including pricing, lead times, layout drawings, clarifications, deposit terms, etc.

* PMs develop and maintain job execution plans for each project – attending jobsite meetings, communicating schedules and other requirements to internal and external resources for efficient kickoff, progress, and finish.

* PMs requisition job materials and supplies based on line item budgets and approved submittals.

* PMs also source installation labor – negotiating subcontracts, confirming terms and timing as well as qualification status.  PMs have a crucial role in maintaining and developing subcontractor relationships.

* PMs oversee job progress billings, obtaining customer deposits and progress payments as required.  The PM is primarily responsible for reviewing and approving cost adds, communicating change logs to our clients, and obtaining contract modifications.

* PMs analyze job profitability-in-progress, and verify their final job costs.

* PMs are responsible for all final as-built documentation of projects, responsible for scheduling and performing a final warranty walk with each client, and are the reason clients return to D9 for repeat business – need we say more?

* Our Project Managers work in teams to ensure the successful delivery of our projects, and long-term relationships with our clients. All Division 9 Flooring team members embrace lean principles and participate in building efficiencies throughout the organization.

Who on earth is qualified for this?

These things help:

*An internal desire to be the best at what you do. Period.

*Strong leadership and team-building skills go a long way – you’re responsible for coordinating the efforts of many others to produce a high-quality result.

*The ability to thrive under pressure.  Our job requirements change constantly; we don’t complain or make excuses, we adapt & deliver on time.

*Prior construction experience on commercial projects is strongly preferred.  Some things you can’t learn in school.

*Prior experience and/or formal education in Project Management or a related discipline is also a big help in meeting our high expectations of PM work.

*Advanced to expert software skills are also needed to be successful in this position, and will be tested pre-hire.  The computer is your friend in project management!
