Project Manager

Location: Seattle, WA

We are looking for a Project Manager to join our Seattle, WA office!

ACCO Engineered Systems has been annually recognized by a national industry magazine as one of the top-10 specialty contractors in the United States, and the leader in its mechanical contracting field for the Western United States. We have a diverse environment of skilled professionals - field construction workers, engineering, project managers, service technicians, and supporting staff - who collaborate together and make ACCO an engaging place to work.

In this role, you will manage and lead projects from "cradle to grave" for a broad range of facilities - from hotel, retail, and offices to schools, health care, arenas, and high tech manufacturing plants.  ACCO has a highly entrepreneurial environment; ACCO values and rewards creativity for those Project Managers who deliver results.

Relationships are a crucial part of our business model, as most of our new contracts come from existing, long-standing customers. Each year you can expect to contribute to multiple projects of varying scope, complexity, and duration. Each project is unique, and will present new challenges and opportunities for you to grow professionally.

ACCO pioneered a structure in which an assigned Project Manager (PM) is the client's primary contact from the inception of any project through completion and on-going warranty. The Project Manager role is a hybrid mix of sales engineering, project management and business management responsibilities. In a way, you will run your projects as if it were your own business, from project selection to engineering the solution to coordinating ACCO's resources to deliver the solution. Perhaps the most important aspect of the role is your ability to balance the sales aspects of the role with very strong technical engineering skills required for the project engineering and management stages.
