Our project managers are technical leads first, with a strong background in CQV strategy, development, and field execution. We look for culture fit above all – our people are our most important asset, and great people make great teams! Our ideal project manager will have experience managing projects of $1m or more, and have managed teams of at least 6-8 engineers and consultants on defined scopes of work.
A successful CAI PM will need to show direct responsibility for scope/schedule/budget for project experience. We love experienced generalists, but if you’re a CQV SME in facilities, clean utilities, upstream and downstream biotech equipment, single use disposable, or aseptic fill finish manufacturing, we’d like to talk to you! A PMP is great, but you’ll need the experience if you want to run with a CAI team. On any given day, you might be leading a budget review meeting, leading a daily huddle with your team, reviewing a summary report, writing a protocol, or supporting your team executing in the field. CAI PMs are active, multifaceted roles - desktop PMs need not apply! The CAI project manager typically reports to either a client manager or an area manager.
