General Job Description

The Field Engineer is responsible for supporting and assisting the Project Manager with administration and management of one of Casey Industrial’s construction projects.  The role is often flexible depending on the specific project’s requirements, and the makeup of the project management team and support staff.  On larger projects with a big team, the role may be more specific and specialized.  On smaller projects, a more general, jack-of-all-trades approach may be necessary. 

The Field Engineer should be evaluating the overall status of the project, searching for those things that have potential to negatively impact the project goals and objectives.  Time constraints dictate that there is an effective working relationship with the Project Manager, with clear understanding of how challenges and opportunities are to be handled.  Effective performance in this role requires a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the current project situation, as well as the project scope, purpose, and goals.  

The role requires interfacing with all areas affected by the project including the client(s), distributors, vendors, and the ongoing strategic communication with project management regarding the status of the project.
