CAREERS AT CESMII
The Program Manager is a senior technical manager responsible for overseeing a portfolio of technical projects of various sizes, spanning across a variety of companies and universities, comprising both Research & Development and technology initiatives for the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII).
CESMII’s technology mission is to collaboratively develop and proliferate the adoption of smart manufacturing technologies including sensing, control, modeling, analytics and platforms for small, medium and large manufacturers. This mission is executed through portfolios of small and large R&D, capability and application projects of varying sizes executed by teams composed of CESMII’s members across its Smart Manufacturing Innovation Centers (SMIC).
The Program Manager should be knowledgeable and have a broad range of experience in manufacturing systems and successfully managing multiple technical projects simultaneously. This role is one of two program managers responsible for overseeing and collaborating on a large scope of projects, each with its own project manager, from planning through execution.
The Program Manager coordinates the management of technical projects across project managers to ensure alignment with CESMII’s overall technology mission, as well as ensure consistent, standardized execution and reporting to CESMII HQ and the Department of Energy.
The Program Manager will collaborate with and guide project managers throughout the project life cycle, including proposal preparation, management of project documentation, project time lines and deliverables, preparation of all necessary communications, periodic progress reports, and coordination of project meetings and schedules. The Project Manager will be responsible for ensuring projects are completed on time, within budget and scope, and manages issues that need resolution at the portfolio level.
