Infrastructure Project Manager
Fully Remote Remote - DC Area Preferred
Job Type


Oftentimes, organizations and open roles are described as being entrepreneurial. But what does that mean at Essentia, Inc and how does it apply to our Infrastructure Project Manager role?

Being entrepreneurial means that you’ll have an opportunity to come in and immediately take the reins. It means that you’re in control of your day — and how successful it is. But that’s just the beginning. By leading customer engagements with confidence and demonstrating an aptitude for sales, you can also earn the opportunity to grow your business-within-a-business by hiring and managing like-minded entrepreneurial professionals.

In other words, this is more than a high-growth company; this is a high-growth role.
