Acoustical Engineer / Consultant

Sequence has been exclusively retained and is currently seeking a talented Acoustical Engineer or Acoustical Consultant to manage small to mid-sized projects and work as part of a team on larger scale acoustical endeavors. This is currently the highest profile position of its type within the niche acoustical market in Chicago and the greater regional area.

Our client is one of the industries oldest and most respected local organizations within the Acoustics & Vibration field in the mid-west. They have a history and reputation finding practical, innovative, and cost-effective solutions to real life design problems. They are also known for being passionate about their people, clients, and projects. From a corporate culture perspective, they are an empowering organization with great opportunity for advancement.

That tradition carries over to the firm's corporate culture. The firm is a learning organization that is focused on being experts in the field, understanding clients' needs and goals for their projects, as well as staying current on the latest technologies which, combined with lessons learned, allows personnel to the leverage to develop practical, buildable solutions.

Key focus of their efforts for this role is on building acoustics, including high rise multi-family residential, educational facilities, hotels, hospitals, offices and power plants. The firm is known for specialization of projects efforts, many of which are constructed in noise-impacted areas.

The firm believes that design success is a two-way street. They strive to work closely with the entire project team to understand everyone’s point of view and be considerate of their role on the project to ensure a collegial experience that ultimately results in a successful project. Their clients number among world-class developers, top architects and engineers, and Fortune 100 companies. This is range from ensuring reliable, robust technology for a multi-million square foot financial headquarters to making sure students can hear their teachers in a fifteen thousand square foot primary school, and everything in-between.

Today we are specifically seeking a talented mid- to senior level professional to join their acoustical practice. The role requires technical proficiency, client relationship management, project management and project delivery.

Key duties include:

- Project management of smaller to mid-sized projects and participation in larger scale endeavors as part of a project team.

- Carrying out technical work meeting company and professional standards - ensuring quality and timely deliverables.

- Conducting site visits, collecting data, performing calculating and modeling.

- Project communication and authoring reports.

- Maintaining client relationships and fostering repeat business or cross-selling services.

- Proposal Development with Senior Staff.

The position is a result of expansion efforts. The organization often doesn't hire and works to avoid the up and down nature of feast and famine of work which can lead to a cycle of hiring and layoffs of personnel. So this is a stable and long-term addition to the acoustical team. It is also one that has potential to grow within the firm or get on a future principal track.

The ideal candidate would have at least 2 - 5+ years or more of acoustical / mechanical / and/or related experience with ability to apply to building, transportation or related noise engagements.

A degree in acoustics, mechanical engineering, acoustics, architecture or domain related field is desired, but hands-on experience and abilities will take precedence over class room education. Proficiency with sound and vibration measurement equipment and techniques, acoustical modeling software and analysis. Key here is domain knowledge of building systems and construction methods and interpret drawings/blueprints with the ability to communicate with architects, engineers and contractors.

This could be the perfect role for a mid-level individual looking to find a long-term home with a growing and stable organization. It could also possibly be an opportunity for a talented senior-level professional looking to gain extensive experience or who could potentially merge their small practice into a reputable and stable firm.

This full-time direct hire position offers a competitive salary, bonuses based on performance, profit sharing and strong benefits plan, including fully paid medical/dental/vision as well as 401k, life insurance, bonus, profit sharing, vacation and sick leave, etc. The roles require occasional travel to varied client sites and facilities for project management and data collection (primarily regional near company headquarters or on the east coast/south-east).

Relocation assistance is available for the right individual.
