  • Work closely with Business Development and the BD Support team to evaluate new opportunities, and plan for any necessary resource changes. This includes participating in client-facing calls and contributing to the development and delivery of proposals.
  • Support the Engineering team through departmental activities, process improvements, and internal projects, in collaboration with other Engineering Managers and the Director of Engineering.
