Parsons seeks a Program Director to play a key role in growing our traditional transportation design services with TxDOT (and other agencies). This job has been identified as a top priority to drive organic growth in Texas. The successful candidate, working with our management team will drive this growth, increase our win rate, and increase our sales pipeline. The market is robust and accessible to Parsons with addition of a few key staff in the large metro areas in Texas.

This Program Director will immediately serve as the capture manager for pursuits in the Dallas, Fort Worth and other assigned districts. Depending on the results of the Design-Build Mega projects in Texas (NEX, Southeast Connector, and I35E Ph2), this PM may be assigned to support these projects. The successful candidate will serve a QA/QC role for current and pending TxDOT assignments being managed by others. Eventually serve as PM for captured projects.

This job can be based in our Dallas (Richardson), Houston or Austin offices.

Parsons has immediate projects with the Texas Department of Transportation and other large public agencies which will expose engineers to a large variety of tasks. Some field review activities may be associated with the assigned tasks, so engineers are expected to be able to travel for these assignments on an as-needed basis. Other upcoming work opportunities include large scale design-build proposals/projects located in Texas and in other states, plus civil engineering assignments associated with various transit projects in North America.

Below is just a sampling of recent projects that our Richardson, Texas staff have worked on including:

  • IH 35E managed lanes design-build reconstruction in Dallas/Denton Counties
  • SH 183 managed lanes design-build reconstruction in Dallas and Irving
