Remote AV Engineering Manager
Are you seeking to lead a dynamic team of Audio-Visual experts from the comfort of your own location? Do you have a passion for crafting innovative AV solutions, collaborating in a creative environment, and advancing your career in the field of Audio-Visual technology? Are you ready to shape the future of the AV industry? If you answered "Yes!" to these questions, you might be the perfect fit for our team!
We are a nationally recognised leader in providing Consulting, Designing and Engineering. We specialise in delivering tailored solutions to our clients, and every project we undertake presents unique challenges. Our work impacts millions of individuals daily, with our systems found in International Airports, Stadiums, Universities, Fortune 500 companies, and even mission-critical facilities like those within the US Military. Our headquarters are in St. Louis, MO, and we maintain regional offices in major cities across the country, ensuring personalised service for our clients.
We're currently on the lookout for an experienced Audio-Visual Professional to join our team and lead our AV Consulting and Engineering Practice. This is not your typical AV role. Daily, you'll be tasked with creating inventive solutions for our clients, as our AV projects typically range from $5MM to over $50MM in value. This role demands a unique set of skills and qualities. Our ideal candidate possesses:
Proficiency in cutting-edge design technologies and approaches.
A track record of managing multimillion-dollar AV projects successfully.
Experience collaborating effectively with multi-discipline design and construction teams.
Forward-thinking with an eye on the future of AV.
Exceptional client management skills and an extroverted personality.
Familiarity with Bluebeam REVU.
Prior management experience, with a commitment to company collaboration and culture.
AV Project Management expertise.
You won't be an average consultant. You'll be continually challenged as you work on systems that impact the daily experiences of tens of thousands of people or are integral to mission-critical facilities.
Lead a growing AV discipline, ensuring alignment with the company's overall strategy and standards.
Mentor existing AV staff and help establish a shared knowledge base across the company.
Manage AV resources and project commitments effectively.
Contribute your technical expertise to Audio and Visual System Design and Deployment.
Assist clients through our design teams in developing complete AV systems as part of construction design planning, consulting, and overall project life-cycles.
Participate in various planning and design tasks, including the development of alternate solution architectures, cost-benefit analysis, basic infrastructure requirements, equipment specifications, and cost estimates.
Collaborate internally with team members possessing expertise in different IT and technical disciplines to ensure the production of modern, validated designs for clients.
Provide AV-focused expertise to non-AV colleagues within the company who also work in their own disciplines with clients (e.g., Security System, Mechanical, and Infrastructure-focused employees).
Occasional site surveys, meetings, and commissioning work at client sites.
Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential for reviewing and ensuring the quality of various formal client deliverables, including Technology Master Plans, High-Level Design (HLD) documents, Basis of Design (BoD) documentation, and more.
Ability to communicate concerns to leadership when they arise and use feedback and tools provided to consistently improve the final work products in all projects.

Education: Bachelor's degree in a related field.
