The International Living Future Institute (ILFI), a dynamic and solutions-oriented non-profit, seeks an exceptional Manager focused on the Living Building Challenge (LBC) and Living Community Challenge (LCC) programs. ILFI’s mission is to lead and support the transformation toward communities that are socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative. The successful candidate must exhibit a strong passion for the environment and the organization’s mission. The Living Building Challenge is widely accepted as the most innovative green building standard in the world. It defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to diminish the gap between current limits and ideal solutions.
The primary duties of the Manager relate to project consulting and resource development. Secondary duties include contributing to education development, assisting with day-to-day customer support, and conducting occasional research tasks. The successful candidate will have experience with large, complex development projects and/or large master planned or community-scale projects.
This position requires strong experience and expertise in green building and an ability to manage multiple projects and partnerships simultaneously. The successful applicant must be a multi-tasking, self-starter with an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for the ILFI mission, knowledge of green building products and buildings, and strong interpersonal and organizational skills. Many aspects of this role will be public-facing and will require confident and professional public-speaking and meeting facilitation skills. All aspects of this role will require strong interpersonal skills and excellent written and verbal communication skills. High competency with Mac-based computers is a must, ability to read construction drawings and specifications, and a basic knowledge of the design and construction process is required. Some knowledge of Salesforce and Adobe InDesign is desired.
ILFI offers a fast-paced, collaborative, team-oriented workplace that is mission driven. This position will require periodic travel within the Pacific Northwest and occasionally beyond as well as attendance at after office hours meetings and events. Compensation is commensurate with experience and is supplemented by ILFI’s generous benefits package that includes health and dental insurance, employee life insurance, 403(b) retirement matching, three weeks of paid annual leave and twelve days of annual sick leave.
