Automation Engineer Manager (5 Yrs Experience Required)

Intelli-Building Control & Solutions - Chicago, IL

Employment Type : Full-Time

We are seeking a Senior Level Engineer Manager to join our team of 20+ members here at Intelli-Building Control & Solutions, LLC (IBCS). Originally a Chicago based start-up in 2009, we now serve the Midwest through several locations that include a sales office in the Chicago Green Exchange, a UL-508A certified panel shop in Lakemoor, IL, and our Indiana office based out of Indianapolis. In these markets, we act as dealers for Reliable Controls®, Delta Controls® and Lynxspring®.

Our team consists of some of the most knowledgeable and skilled industry veterans to learn from. The employees at IBCS are dedicated and this is proven through our reputation in the market. Engineering, installing, commissioning, and programming to meet the needs of our customers are our highest priorities. The work we do is unique every day.

As a controls contractor, IBCS provides turnkey Direct Digital Control (DDC) systems for commercial new construction and retrofits. We primarily work with Mechanical HVAC equipment but also provide solutions in Lighting, Door Access, and Video Surveillance systems.

While on construction sites we still bring a hard hat and lunch pail but are mainly identified as the guys with their laptops out. However, before our team is on-site, it’s the engineers putting together the game plan that lays the foundation for success.

IBCS engineers are primarily office based and can work from any of our locations depending on their level of experience. Although it’s not often required, you will occasionally need to go to job sites to view equipment and attend meetings. However, if you prefer spending more time getting eyes-on in the field, we only ask that you complete your jobs in-full and to the quality we are known for.

Intelli-Building Control & Solutions is recognized as a preferred building automation provider with excellence in engineering, programming, project management, commissioning, and execution of the project. The ability to effectively communicate on the phone, via e-mail, and in-person is a MUST as you will often be coordinating and submitting your work to engineers or mechanical companies.
