Ideally, you will be confident in overseeing a small team of draftsmen.


About the Company:

You’ll be joining a growing company with 3 draftsmen, a senior engineer with a broad range of experience, and the founder & director. The company is expanding, hence the reason for this new opening.

This brings with it exciting opportunities for growth within the business and the role. You’ll work 3 days from home with 2 days in the office and with the flexibility to work out of either the New Jersey or New York office, respectively.

  • Are proficient with AutoCAD and other design software.
  • Have strong communication skills.
  • Are detail-oriented.
  • Will be confident in overseeing the work of a small team of draftsmen.
  • Possess strong written communication skills with a good command of English.
  • Are proficient with building and zoning codes.


The Role & What You’ll Do:

  • Oversee the draftsmen’s designs and ensure they meet code requirements.
  • Work with clients to understand their needs for each project.
  • Work in line with deadlines and timeframes on projects.
  • Use AutoCAD to complete functional, readable designs.
  • Collaborate closely with the senior engineer who has a wide range of experience.
  • Perform other duties as required.


Why This Role:
