Level Description: Project Manager 2


The City of Austin D/B/A Austin Energy
requires the services of one Project Manager hereafter referred to as Worker,
who meet the general qualification Project Manager 2 and the specifications
outlined in this document for Austin Energy.


Energy is the 8th largest community-owned electric utility in the
country. We serve more than 480,000

Travis County, and a small portion of Williamson County. Our annual revenues total $1.2 billion. The
Utility has a diverse generation portfolio of more than 2,600 megawatts of
traditional generation and more than 450 megawatts of renewable energy. Austin
Energy has led the nation in sales of renewable energy by a utility-sponsored
program for the last seven years in a row. The Utility also offers some of the
most comprehensive rebates in the country for residential and commercial
customers to make energy-efficiency improvements to their homes and buildings.


Austin Energy is recruiting for a highly
experienced and effective project manager to manage projects related to
grant-funded research and the utility s strategic initiatives related to
distributed energy resources (DER). This position will report to the Program Manager
of DER Integration and will be responsible for end-to-end project oversight and
coordination. Austin Energy's DER Integration Program is part of the utility s Advanced
Grid Technologies group, focused on emerging utility technology. The successful
candidate will have exceptional skills in project management and change
management with experience managing project scope, schedule and budget;
documentation and status reporting; risk and issue tracking; workgroup
coordination; business process recommendations; and project deliverables. The

As the utility partner for SOLACE,
Austin Energy has several work streams to plan, coordinate, and implement

Austin Energy s effort is essentially a project within a larger project,
and it requires robust project management. Austin Energy s SOLACE work includes
engineering analysis and design, equipment procurement and installation,
technology change control, a real-world demonstration of the designed solution,
and documenting results. While the
technical work will be handled by Austin Energy employees and project partners,
