      Associate Project Manager

      Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates seeks a highly organized, independent and motivated Associate Project Manager for its San Francisco office. This is an outstanding opportunity for the right person to become involved in building Nelson\Nygaard's practice, which is focused on multi-modal transportation planning for livable communities. Nelson\Nygaard's work emphasizes creative, innovative transit/transportation planning and community involvement, often within a wider set of goals such as economic development and reduced dependence on the private automobile.

      An Associate Project Manager is expected to:
      Function as a project manager for small studies and as a lead planner for complex components of large projects
      Organize and supervise data collection activities in the office and the field
      Analyze public transit data (ridechecks, surveys and operations)
      Write sections of reports related to data collection activities
      Prepare Existing Conditions Reports (census, GIS, growth, current services, etc)
      Conduct research as needed to assist senior staff on projects
      Take the lead on small-budget business development proposals
      Assist with community outreach activities
      Though most of the work will come from projects on the West Coast, there will be numerous opportunities for the candidate to contribute to Nelson\Nygaard projects across the United States. Candidates must be willing to travel (on average 2 overnight stays per month plus numerous day trips) and must have a valid Driver's License.

      The ideal candidate should have at least two years of directly related transportation and urban planning experience. Experience working at public agencies or private consulting firms is preferred but not a requirement. At the very least the candidate must be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and issues in at least two of the following areas:
      Transportation master planning
      Transit/shuttle planning and operations
      Transit facility planning
      Transportation funding and finance
      Governmental and organizational development
      Quantitative analysis
      Bike/pedestrian planning
      Transit-oriented development
      Transportation demand management
      Candidates should have a Masters Degree in urban or transportation planning, or a related planning field, plus two years of directly related planning experience. Candidates who posses only a B.A./B.S. in urban or transportation planning will be considered provided they have at least three years of directly related planning experience.

      Potential candidates must demonstrate excellent skills in writing, data analysis, oral presentation and problem solving. The candidate must be able to demonstrate basic proficiency with Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word, and hopefully will have some experience with SPSS and/or Microsoft Access. Potential candidates may be asked to demonstrate their writing and oral presentation skills before a selection panel.

      Salary and Benefits
      All employees are paid an hourly rate. The annual salary range equivalent for the position is $50,000 to $60,000, depending on qualifications. Benefits include fully paid health and dental insurance, a 401K/profit-sharing program and Paid Time Off (PTO).
