Start your Jacobs career with a company that inspires and empowers you to deliver your best work so you can evolve, grow and succeed – today and into tomorrow.

Your Impact:

The energy industry is undergoing rapid and dramatic changes, moving away from fossil fuels to alternative energy sources. At the same time, the risks posed by climate change and aging infrastructure requires an array of dynamic and innovative solutions to deliver resilient utility services.

This great energy transition is still in its early stages, and presents significant technical, logistical, and market challenges. Decarbonization will require detailed planning, multi-disciplinary collaboration, significant financial resources, and motivated staff to support successful implementation. Jacobs is expanding our team to tackle the complexities of decarbonization to deliver a cleaner and more secure energy future. This is a senior leadership position and the successful candidate will be responsible for growing the business and maintaining a positive culture.

By joining our team, we’ll harness your expertise as an innovator and business leader to develop strategies to solve our client’s challenging energy needs. As a Geographic Manager, you’ll work closely across operations, sales, and technology functions providing leadership as we expand our energy transitions portfolio. You can be based anywhere in North America.

Your primary responsibilities will focus upon 1) growth of delivery capability, both in North America and leveraging global resources, for electrical transmission and distribution engineering design projects for utility, industrial and municipal clients, 2) development and execution of market strategy to support Jacobs’s growth in the Energy Transitions market specific to transmission and distribution, and 3) collaborating with Client Account Managers and sales professionals on pursuits of strategic importance to the firm. This will include extensive client dialogue, team building, and development of differentiating strategies.

Other responsibilities will include client-facing delivery in leadership roles to develop implementation strategies for large programs, responsible for overall work progress, technical performance and client and stakeholder satisfaction. You’ll be expected to possess highly collaborative and sophisticated communication and problem-solving skills and finesse. Successful candidates will have a demonstrated ability to anticipate challenges and manage “up and out” while supporting large teams responsible for the daily details of project delivery.

You will have held roles of increasing responsibility in supporting electrical and utility infrastructure engineering, construction, and operations including management of single projects to delivery of complex programs. This is not a development position, but a role considered by Jacobs to represent the peak of an advanced professional career.

If you are excited by the possibilities of a carbon-free energy future, motivated by a challenge, and enjoy working with a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team to develop innovative solutions, Jacobs is the place for you. Come join our growing team to realize the future of energy.
