Seeking Construction Manager in the Portland, Oregon Area

Interested in starting a career with purpose? It’s easy to wake up every day and work hard for something that you believe in.

Here at Power Northwest we’re firm believers in providing our customers with access to clean energy provided by the Sun. We’re looking for like-minded individuals that are willing to work hard, dedicate themselves to the cause, and be proud of the work that we do.

The Construction Manager will support our installers and electricians on installations from start to finish, ensuring a quality installation. The process will start by conducting a site visit, then reviewing drawings created by the drafters, assembling project specific parts lists, supporting the installers throughout the installation, and finally doing what it takes to ensure that we pass the inspection. Throughout this entire process, the Construction Manager would work with our Project Managers, Installers, and Electricians to make sure that we can provide a product that we can all be proud of.
