Sr. Technical Project Manager - Civil Engineering



IT, Operations
Austin, TX, USA
Posted on Saturday, November 11, 2023


Pipedream Labs is building the city infrastructure needed to make super fast delivery affordable & safe. Our goal is to make delivery so fast & effortless that almost anything you need can to be delivered in single digit minutes or less. To do this, we need to bring in the best talent in the world and provide them the tools & support they’ll need to do the best work of their careers. While we have extremely high hiring standards, a candidate’s past projects, drive, and humility supersedes their degree(s) & experience. Some of our first hires were previous founders who sold their respective companies, and some of them were/are still in college.


We are looking for a technical project manager to help oversee the detailed design and construction of underground infrastructure projects to enable autonomous deliveries. This role will require extensive travel (50%-65%) to job sites to manage subcontractors, act as the company’s representative to the local government and stakeholders, and to conduct surveying and measurements in order to validate installation to project specifications. This role will report directly to the COO, but will closely support the the engineering team focused on underground infrastructure design. This role will have the opportunity to evolve into a department head as the project implementation team grows. Daily work will include preparing & reviewing technical designs, implementing relevant design standards, filing utility construction permits, managing subcontractors & vendors, and participating in system validation testing.


At Pipedream we ask a lot of our employees, which is why we are willing to curate a work environment that respects your work-life balance needs and ultimately takes care of you on all ends. In addition to your competitive salary & medical/dental/vision/lifestyle plan, we’ll flood you with perks, including:

  • Schedule flexibility: you choose your hours, WFH as-needed
  • 4 weeks of PTO (mandatory), plus holidays
  • Stock Option Plan
  • Family Leave (maternity & paternity)
  • Our office is dog-friendly, located 10-mins away from Downtown Austin
    • additionally, a co-working office space in Downtown Austin


  • Bachelors or Masters in Civil Engineering
  • PE (Professional Engineer)
  • Experience in underground utilities design and installation
  • Experience managing projects with multiple stakeholders and subcontractors

Nice to haves:

  • Experience designing storm water infrastructure
  • Experience with concrete and cement structure design
  • Knowledge of utility permitting process
