The balance between finding, winning and prosecuting will vary with experience and between projects. * You will plan your work, and on some projects, direct and coordinate the activities of engineers and technicians, to ensure that technical goals and/or objectives are accomplished, and budgets and schedules are met, all in a multidisciplinary environment. * You will gain clients' acceptance and earn their trust and confidence in your technical and project work. * You will be required to participate in business development activities, client interviews and presentations as applicable. * You will be encouraged to embrace industry participation per our values.

Your skills will likely already have led to contributions at leading conferences or in industry bodies or journals. * A base degree in mechanical or aeronautical (aerodynamic) engineering is required, as the thermodynamics, chemistry and fluid dynamics of ventilation and fires must be a core skill. * A master's degree or a PhD would be well regarded. * You need to have a Mechanical Professional Engineer (PE) license in at least one state. * You must be highly competent in the use of analytic tools which, in order of importance are: brain; pencil and paper; spreadsheet; and modelling software. * We highly regard expertise at 1-D packages (IDA Tunnel or perhaps SES), and CFD packages (FDS or Fluent). * The role requires strong communication (both oral and written), analytical and leadership skills. * Project management, staff management and client interaction experience are expected, commensurate with your level of technical experience.
