This position will act as Assistant Program Manager for Perimeter Connects, helping to lead a team of 6+ contributors and act as a chief individual contributor to the program’s goals. This includes leading commuter transportation projects and/or tasks, from the development of strategy to the delivery of high-impact, in-depth projects.

The core functions of the role include:

  • Helping shape strategy and implementation for Perimeter Connects
  • Leveraging partnerships and project management practices to support change in transportation options and how people get around.
  • Implementing employer-facing outreach, sales, and partnerships for employers like UPS, IHG, State Farm, and thousands of others.

If you want a job that directly and meaningfully improves communities, tackles climate change, and is refreshingly different every day, then you’re in the right place.
