Prosper Portland seeks two experienced project managers who will plan and implement a variety of development initiatives for the City of Portland. This opportunity offers an intimate role in making the city a better place to live for all as you collaborate with public, private and community-based partners to realize growth and resiliency that is inclusive and community driven, financially sound and advances equitable prosperity.

The ideal candidates will possess comprehensive project management capabilities and a passion for equity-based development, along with the flexibility and talent to manage complex, fluid and sometimes politically charged projects. Significant training or experience in real estate development, finance or community planning is also desirable. Candidates will have strong self-awareness, the ability to work collaboratively and an intuitive ease with broad and inclusive community engagement.

One position will concentrate on commercial and industrial initiatives in and around Portland’s Central Eastside. In this quickly changing landscape, issues such as Portland’s role as a technology hub, the evolution of manufacturing and warehousing industries in close-in locations and the extent and proliferation of non-commercial and industrial uses will all be important. Experience in economic development and a passion for working with a wide range of businesses will be valuable in this position.

The other position will initially focus on southwest Portland. This area includes several development catalysts including the planned extension of the MAX light rail, significant changes to other transportation infrastructure like the Ross Island Bridge and community redevelopment in the West Portland Town Center area. Skill and experience working with grass-roots, community led development efforts in the context of regional scale public infrastructure investments will serve this position well.

Monthly Salary Range: $6,970 - $9,178

One position is full time. The other opportunity is a limited term position expiring three years from hire date.
