ABOUT THE POSITION
Cascade Energy continues to experience steady growth, and our Northern California office is expanding to meet demand. We have an opportunity to manage natural gas savings programs for one or more California utilities. The delivery team will be composed of a program manager, one or more project engineers, a program specialist, and outreach personnel. It could potentially include subcontractors and matrixed personnel from other departments. We are currently accepting applicants for one or more Project Engineers to provide technical support for this team.
We are seeking an individual with deep experience in industrial energy efficiency, particularly with natural gas systems, and a familiarity with the industrial segment in California. This individual will be responsible for serving existing clients and helping to increase natural gas energy efficiency in the territory through delivery of project engineering services. Additional responsibilities will include strategic energy management (SEM) and program management services. This position requires a specific skillset to be effective – a combination of analytical ability, communicative personality, willingness to handle administrative details, and innate desire to be of service.
Our project engineers take a consultative approach, gathering data, installing logging equipment, creating optimization models of industrial systems, and writing feasibility reports for energy efficiency projects, while leading overall management of projects. They work closely with our utility Demand Side Management (DSM) programs and consideration is given to candidates with a familiarity of these programs.
This full-time, exempt position is located in our San Ramon office. The position requires approximately 30% travel, most of which is local. This could be a half day trip to a site or to a vendor, a full day trip to multiple sites, or an occasional overnight trip to a more distant area.
Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions of the job.
Successful candidates will possess a combination of both technical and interpersonal skills. First and foremost, we seek someone who exhibits all the characteristics of a “people person.” Additional qualifications needed for this role include:
