Do you have the desire to expand your horizon and manage a successful traffic engineering business, and have the know how to provide permitting for private developments with municipal and State review agencies (Planning Boards/Zoning Boards, regional planning agencies/MEPA/MassDOT, Massachusetts Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs)? We currently have four full-time traffic engineers/analysts, and we are looking for an experienced and dynamic leader/manager with 15+ years of hands-on practical traffic/transportation experience with private clients.

You should also be able to perform business development, presentations, and interviews to obtain future work.

This position has great potential for expansion: financial gain through stock ownership at Nitsch; leadership growth; and annual compensation growth through performance increases and participation in the company bonus distribution program. A bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering is required. A master’s degree in transportation engineering, and/or certification in ENV SP or AICP will be considered a plus.
