Position: Junior Project Manager: Real Estate, Design and Construction

Matter Real Estate is a growing, entrepreneurial real estate advisory and project management firm based in Manhattan. We are on a mission to build a multi-disciplinary team of exceptional professionals – including architects, engineers and construction managers – to help our clients execute complex real estate projects. We specialize in assisting mission-oriented organizations and property owners to successfully plan and effectively build space that is highly-functional and economical. As we grow our team, we plan to pursue our own real estate development projects in New York City.

We believe that real estate is not just in the pro forma but exists as a place and thing – therefore, having a passion for design and construction is essential to succeed at our firm. We are seeking a Junior Project Manager with an excellent track record of accomplishment, an exceptional work ethic and a desire to learn and grow. The ideal candidate is self-motivated to produce very high-quality work and is driven to take on “stretch” assignments.

Required Education and Experience

This position requires a bachelor’s degree in architecture, engineering, or construction management and at least one year of related work experience in New York City. Previous work experience should demonstrate your ability to successfully manage multiple projects simultaneously. The position requires strong written and verbal communication skills and mastery of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

We welcome candidates from the design and construction industries looking to broaden their real estate expertise. You will be asked to wear many hats and be given an opportunity to gain exposure to multiple aspects of real estate.  

Summary of Responsibilities

The Junior Project Manager will work closely with the firm’s principal on a variety of real estate

projects and transactions in New York City. Responsibilities include providing assistance with the management of design and construction, communications to clients, coordination with project team members, completion of financial analyses, management of project plans and budgets, and attending on-site meetings and walk-throughs to ensure projects are completed successfully.

Detailed Responsibilities

The selected candidate will work in a team environment to execute necessary tasks. We don’t expect the selected candidate to have experience in all facets of the role; instead, we expect you to have the relevant foundational skills, tenacity, and diligence to master these skills “on the job.” As the Junior  Project Manager establishes a track record of success, responsibilities will grow and evolve.
