You are an engaging communicator

It takes clarity of mind to communicate as well as you do. You realize that each person under your management thinks and processes information differently, and so you ask good questions and are an empathetic listener. The rapport you establish empowers your leadership, which is one reason why your team functions so well. Please connect with us!

The Senior Program Director will support and manage the design of large-scale transportation projects in the New York/New Jersey region. Working with major transportation infrastructure agencies in the region, our Program Director will assist in winning new projects and work on existing projects in both the Mobility Solutions Market Line and the Connected Communities Market Line.

The Senior Program Director will provide direction and management for every phase of design on significant projects or programs to assure on-schedule completion within or below budget and in accordance with contractual obligations. You must be capable of managing a project or program valued up to $1 billion in total installed cost.

You feel most job satisfaction when you're helping others

Your focus on the needs, preferences, and values of others will make you a very valuable manager to us. You believe that your job is not finished until you're absolutely sure that you and your team have done everything necessary to satisfy those needs. You are respectful and responsive, both to those you serve and those you manage, in your quest to develop trusting long-term relationships. We are eager to meet you.


  • 4-year degree in Engineering or related technical/business field and at least 20+ years of related work experience is required.
  • Incumbent should have a broad general technical and business background, as well as previous project management experience on similar or related large-scope project types.

Proven ability to perform in a management capacity, excellent written and oral communications skills, and a thorough knowledge of industry practices and regulations are also required. In addition, must be knowledgeable of current technology and how it can be effectively utilized on the project.

We'll appreciate your talent for 'brainstorming' on ways to excel

Many heads are better than one, which is why we're such enthusiastic collaborators, and so successful at it. You'll find a supportive, safe environment here to encourage you and your managerial team to participate fully in discussions aimed at adding fresh thinking to our processes, products, and every other aspect of our success. When we work together, we all come out winners, and that includes every member of our dynamic, diverse staff. It's no wonder we're committed to bringing diversity all the way to the top. Inspired?
