Project Manager - Warehouse Material Handling Systems

Location : Fairfield, NJ
Job Type : Direct
Start Date : 05/01/2018
Hours : Full Time
Travel : No
Relocation : No
Job Industry : Construction

Job Description :

We’re looking for a Project Manager with experience in Material Handling. If you know what Material Handling is, you also know that the industry is growing like crazy thanks to all those people buying things online like life-sized statues of Bigfoot or Afros for their pug. If you have an interest in applying for this position, here are the details that will help you put together a strong application.


You’ll need to be excellent at collaboration


Working as a Project Manager requires collaboration with department managers in Engineering, Controls and Software (anticipate riveting meetings with these guys), Installation and After Sales Support. You also need to be fantastic at building strong relationships. If you generally can’t get along with people or your ego prevents your swelled head from passing through standard doorframes, we unfortunately can’t accommodate you.


Do you have leadership and problem-solving skills?


You’re going to need to have leadership experience. As a Project Team Lead you will architect project plans and objectives. When obstacles spring up, you will use your prior experience and expert problem-solving abilities to eliminate them with the intensity of Batman from The Dark Knight (not Lego Batman, although a sense of humor would be an added bonus). 

Required Qualifications :

It would be good to know these things:


·      You possess a comprehensive understanding of the material handling industry, including the integration of equipment, individual components, rates, software and controls.

·      You understand how to manage the financial aspects of a project and have demonstrated an ability to balance project decisions against the budget.

·      You can create, update, and issue an overall project task list, risks and issues log, end of job punch list, and complete close-out documentation.


You absolutely must have these skills:


·      A two-year technical degree (or equivalent experience from the school of hard knocks)

·      A background in “Automated Distribution Material Handling Equipment”

·      Excellent time-management skills

·      A skilled and effective communicator

·      Experience using the MS Office suite, including MS Project. AutoCAD is a plus.

·      Ability to travel as needed.
