Now Hiring: Senior Commissioning Agent

Career Description: Senior Commissioning Agent

Architects and Engineers have been designing high-performing buildings for a long time, but very few of these buildings are monitored to see how efficiently they operate.  Building commissioning has emerged over the past decade in response to Owners not being satisfied that the high-tech design they paid for is performing optimally.  Your curiosity and ability to facilitate will help buildings perform to the performance targets that the Owners demand.

Through quality, innovation and a personalized approach, Cyclone Energy Group has become the premier commissioning provider in the Chicagoland area.  Working on a vast variety of technically challenging projects, our dedication to performance sets us apart from other providers.  No project is too big and no small project is taken for granted.

You are a great communicator, strategist and you can execute time dependent tasks.  You are an engineer with five to ten years of experience with the design and construction of buildings.  You have experienced the commissioning process before and feel you can do it.  You are driven and persistent and intrigued with how buildings work.  You know the details, yet you can see the big picture of what is important.

As a Commissioning Project Manager with Cyclone Energy Group, you will work in a fun, fast-paced, innovative, entrepreneurial environment.  You’ll work directly with our world-class clients and will continue to balance our internal team of talented engineers and analysts.  You’ll be challenged by our projects and our relentless drive to improve our process and increase the value we provide to our clients.
