Data Center Commissioning Mechanical Lead (Any US City, EU and Asia)

Dallas, Texas  /  Building Commissioning  /  Full Time

CAI is a 100% employee-owned company established in 1996, that has grown year over year to nearly 550 people worldwide. We provide commissioning, qualification, validation, start-up, project management and other consulting services to FDA regulated and other mission critical industries such as Data Centers.
CAI is seeking motivated Building Commissioning Project Managers and Mechanical Leads to support data center projects across the world. These are full-time opportunities with competitive compensation and benefits which if US based include: up to 15% retirement contribution, 24 days PTO and 5 sick days per year, health insurance at extremely low cost to employee, financial support for both internal and external professional education as well as 70% long term disability paid for by the company.
As consultants to the entire industry, our employee owners are driven by the challenge and constant diversity of assignments, while having the stability of a company that has never had a lay off. On any given day we could be responsible for a myriad of things involved in starting a facility, equipment or process up including protocol and test script writing and execution, SAT's, walk downs, FATs, burn in tests and development of summary reports at the client site.  
To get to those diverse projects our people can experience heavy travel. Although some people rarely travel, it is the exception to the rule. It’s not unusual for our employee owners to travel locally M-F to client sites. If the distance is greater, or spans more time zones, we sometimes travel to the site for 10 days then come back for 4. We don’t want to spend our free time in airports or doing laundry to pack again, and we don’t expect our employees to. Having 4 days to recoup lets our people enjoy a better quality of life..
This position requires extensive to full time international travel.
