Do you love cities and sustainable community building? Are you a ‘plangineer’, change-maker, and problem solver? Do you want to work on sustainable transportation projects to help North American cities reduce their dependence on the automobile?

Mobycon seeks an enthusiastic Junior Integrated Mobility Consultant to support our efforts in North America and beyond. We are specifically looking for a new team member to join our team in Portland, Oregon, USA.

To be eligible for this position, you must be able to work in-person from our Portland office.

In this role, you’ll join our small but mighty team of innovative sustainable mobility planners and designers on projects that thoughtfully integrate global best practices into the local context.

This position is ideal if you are motivated to learn, passionate about sustainable mobility and a quick learner.

For this position, you’ll need:

  • Post-secondary education in urban planning, engineering, landscape architecture, urban design, or a related field.
  • 3+ years of relevant experience at a consulting firm. Experience from a local government or other relevant organizations will also be considered.
  • ‘Plangineering’ project experience in integrated mobility design, policy, and/or planning.
  • A proven track record in delivering project milestones while balancing needs for quality and timeline.
  • Exceptional English communication skills both verbal and written.
  • The ability to work both independently and as a member of a team.
  • Capacity to excel in a remote or hybrid working environment, collaborating with clients and partners spanning multiple states and time zones.

You will excel in this position if you are:

  • Knowledgeable about current transportation practices, policies and design standards in the US and have some understanding of methods in other jurisdictions (e.g., Canada, The Netherlands and beyond).
  • Motivated to support the delivery of winning bids and proposals.
  • Eager to support clients in meeting their goals for context-sensitive innovation.
  • Ready to support the delivery of workshops, interactive community engagement sessions as well as oral presentations for projects, conferences, and events.
  • Committed to growing and maintaining a network of trusted partners and collaborators.
  • Available and willing to travel when necessary.

It would be a bonus if you have:

  • Relevant professional accreditation in your field
  • Entrepreneurial skills
  • Experience using design and spatial analysis software
  • Proficiency in creating visually stimulating content (i.e., Adobe Suite).
  • Work experience on a national or international team
  • Other languages

What we offer you:

We offer you a unique opportunity to work with a highly motivated international team that wants to boost the development of sustainable mobility. Our North American and European teams work together daily.

Work/life balance is important to us, and our team is our most important asset, so we give you plenty of room for personal development and to grow within Mobycon. The job comes with a competitive salary, room to organize your time flexibly and an individual training approach.

Opportunity for an annual trip to the Netherlands to work alongside our Dutch team members.

20 vacation days a year in addition to state holidays.

Working hours are negotiable between 32 and 40 hours a week.

Office and working hours

Our team members have access to inspiring co-working space in downtown Portland. We work with each team member to define the working environment needed for you to thrive. Working from home part-time is encouraged if it maximizes productivity and supports work-life balance.

Space for all

Diversity is critical to our field as it brings further understanding into the different communities in which we work. Therefore, if you bring a different lens, or have a background that enables you to challenge and enrich our views, we welcome that and hope to hear from you.
