Location: Austin, TX preferred – The preference is for candidates to live in Austin to be near the headquarters; however, because this is a high travel role, candidates do have the opportunity to live anywhere near a major U.S. metro and an airport to facilitate travel.

Travel: 75% travel. Typical travel in this role is MON-THURS or MON-FRI. An exciting aspect to the travel is that FTC Solar will continue to develop more and more international projects and there will be the potential of international travel. This is a high travel role so you will have to be open to that level of travel to be considered for the Field Construction Manager role.
