Currently, we have a remote opportunity for Electric Distribution Design Engineering Manager for electric utility distribution design engineering in Seattle, Washington.

Your team of approximately ten engineering professionals is eagerly awaiting your expertise and guidance. Your client is a major electric utility serving more than 460,000 customers. Your job is to work directly with the client to make sure your staff is serving their ever-evolving distribution engineering needs. How you develop your team and grow your client relationship is up to you.

Up to 25% of your staff’s time can be out in the field surveying distribution infrastructure, and they will need your direct training and support while they are there. The rest of your time will be focused on your team’s performance, the quality of your team’s designs, and meeting the changing needs of the client.
