Project Manager I (Klamath)

RES is currently accepting applications for the position of Project Manager based out of the Yreka, CA or Ashland, OR area.
The mission: be part of an epic project!
RES is leading a massive restoration effort integral to the largest dam removal and river renewal project in US history – a task vital to the future of several imperiled salmon populations on the West Coast. The Klamath River and its tributaries were once home to the third-largest salmon population in the West, but those numbers have crashed to an alarming level. A major ecological restoration project will follow the removal of four aging dams that have cut off access to more than 400 stream miles of historical salmon and steelhead habitat. The world is watching, with major media outlets like the BBC and National Geographic already covering this critical project.
If you want to be part of this truly historic effort, we want to meet you. 
You will be supporting new and existing projects, in all project phases. You will be developing project scopes, schedules, and costs, based on your evaluation of the financial feasibility and regulatory and technical requirements.

You will be part of a highly cohesive team that values commitment to quality management, continuous improvement, initiative and problem-solving skills, and client satisfaction. The ability to communicate and coordinate within multi-disciplinary teams will ensure your success.

This position will report daily to the Klamath Field Office or Lower Klamath Project. Around 50% of your time, you will be in the field, working closely with the Health and Safety team, addressing issues indicated by the APMs, and reviewing timesheets.
10% of your time, you will be working with subcontractors, including drafting for bids, estimating, and evaluating them, drafting, reviewing subcontractor proposals, and tracking subcontractor performance.
