About the Role

We are seeking a Project Manager to join our Fabrication team starting immediately. The primary role of the position is to manage custom fabrication projects from the project onboarding phase through installation by coordinating with clients, suppliers, contractors, designers, fabricators, and other staff to successfully fulfill project deliverables according to time-sensitive milestones and deadlines. Depending on the project size and staffing, candidates might also be responsible for 3D modeling and drafting of shop drawings and production drawings as well as delegating these tasks to others. Additional duties include researching products/materials, general team management, client management and fabrication oversight. Prior experience in a custom fabrication or construction environment is required.

Day-to-day, the person in this role will manage and delegate tasks to the project team, as well as coordinate with the client and external parties. Note that this is not an architectural designer job. 

Skills You’ll Need to Bring

  • Bachelor’s degree in Architecture or related field.

  • 5–7 years of experience in Fabrication, Construction (AEC), Architecture, Engineering or related fields.

  • Demonstrated leadership qualities (e.g. communication skills, ability to delegate, etc.); prior experience leading teams preferred.

  • Ability to understand construction and shop drawings.

  • Proficiency with the following software and applications:

    • Google Workspace, Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Mail

    • Adobe Creative Cloud Suite

  • Advanced proficiency in Rhino 3D and other CAD software preferred.

  • Proficiency in Grasshopper is a plus

  • Knowledge of shop math and ability to work with shop tools preferred.

SITU offers competitive benefits, and the opportunity to support creative, thoughtful projects in a shop / studio environment. Benefits include employer health (including two fully funded options), dental, vision, life, long term disability insurance plans, four weeks of paid time off, paid holiday time, and winter break. In addition, we offer transportation benefits such as subsidized CitiBike memberships, pre-tax commuter benefits, and highly reduced parking passes through the Brooklyn Navy Yard. After a year of work, you are eligible to contribute to a 401(k) plan through the business, and SITU will match your contributions, dollar for dollar, up to 4% of your annual pay.

Compensation commensurate with experience. 

About You

We imagine that you have a broad set of interests and skills, and that you wouldn’t be happy focusing on just one of them. At your core, you are a creative problem solver who knows how to apply your wide-ranging knowledge and skills to new challenges. You have a passion for making and materials, so you enjoy ideating and experimenting on the fly, but you also strive to systematize workflows whenever appropriate. You are a team player who can fluidly re-prioritize work, delegate where necessary, and know how to work independently while knowing when to ask for help. If you’re a maker at heart, share our company values, and enthusiastic about materializing ideas, we want to hear from you.

About Us

SITU is an unconventional design practice. We use architecture, research and fabrication for positive creative, environmental and social impact. The company was founded in 2005, in Brooklyn, New York, by four friends studying architecture at The Cooper Union. We’ve shaped our practice out of the multi-disciplinary style of our education, and have grown through working with clients who value a progressive approach to problem-solving. Our process is client-specific, adaptive and driven by a diversity of deep knowledge, untethered from any stylistic or formal agenda. This allows us to work out-of-bounds, using new tools of architecture to generate unique outcomes. This keeps prototyping, research and development, and hands-on craft elemental to our creative process.
