“We are on the brink of exponential growth – this is a chance to become part of our long-term and “core” team before then.”
This position is for an Outdoor Sales Project Manager. Every day, you will be scheduled several Sales appointments to visit new potential clients, and you will need to make time in the rest of your day to visit your own on-going projects.

1:00 PM – Visit on-going project sites, follow up with potential and existing clients

Please keep in mind this is only an example, and may change with the demands of the company.
In this position you will utilize your professional education and company-provided training to conduct residential and commercial drainage assessments, site visits, and outdoor sales appointments. Document your findings via photos, written reports and/or site visit summaries. Develop drainage solutions, provide client/customers with recommendations and estimates.
