Start your Jacobs career with a company that inspires and empowers you to deliver your best work so you can evolve, grow and succeed – today and into tomorrow.

Your Impact:

A goal without a plan is just a wish. Which is why we take time to think through every step of the process in hopes of sustaining our world and creating a brighter future together.

Your Impact:

Globally, vehicle fleet owners and operators are under significant pressure to decarbonize their operations. Converting large fleets from fossil fuel to zero-emission alternatives such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel cell will be critical to a sustainable future. However, these will be revolutionary changes with major impacts on all aspects of an organization: fleet, operations, facilities, utilities, staff, and more.

Large-scale adoption of zero-emissions technology is still in its early stages, and presents significant technical, organizational, and logistical challenges. Zero-emissions fleet adoption will require detailed planning, multi-disciplinary collaboration, significant financial resources, and motivated staff to support successful execution.

Jacobs is expanding our team to tackle the complexities of transportation decarbonization for some of the largest fleet operators in the world.

The Senior Project Manager is an integral position within Jacobs’ People & Places Solutions delivery organization, focusing on acquiring and delivering major transportation decarbonization programs across North America and beyond.

By joining Jacobs, you’ll commit to supporting and engaging with these teams, as we work to build a company like no other.

If you are excited by the possibilities of a zero-emissions future, motivated by a challenge, and enjoy working with a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team to develop innovative solutions, Jacobs is the place for you. Come join our growing team to face the future of transportation head on!
