Project Estimator

· Metairie, Louisiana
Employment Type Full time
Minimum Experience Experienced

If you are someone who desires to be challenged in the work that you do, who is looking for a career instead of a job, who has a positive upbeat attitude, and who has an interest in working on selective private negotiated projects, then our Estimator position may be the role for you.  Ryan Gootee General Contractors, LLC is seeking a person with these characteristics. We look for ambitious people who have a desire to learn and grow year after year.   

As our Estimator, you will be involved in all aspects of the construction process. You will learn from a seasoned team and work with some of the best professionals in the industry. You will work on a variety of projects from historic renovations and restorations to architecturally forward ground-up projects. Every project is different and offers new challenges. You will interact with owners, architects, subcontractors, suppliers, and the RGGC team to provide a best value proposal for our clients. 

As an Estimator, you will prepare construction budgets by studying plans, reviewing spécifications, and identifying all project costs for a variety of jobs. You will effectively communicate with design professionals, subcontractors, and suppliers in order to obtain bids while qualifying all subcontractors and negotiating price. 

Our Estimators are not pigeon holed but rather play an integral role in a collaborative team effort of the projects’ success. Our preconstruction services include involvement and input from the CEO, executive team, project managers and administrative staff.  The role is fun, challenging and provides you the opportunity to participate in the estimating process from beginning to end. As your skills advance, so will your opportunity for advancement.  

RGGC has five times been voted one of the best places to work in New Orleans. The culture here is one of collaboration, integrity, and fairness, always focusing on quality, on-time delivery, and getting the job done right.  You will work with supportive leaders willing to jump in and help you succeed. You will never be on an island without the support and tools you need to do your best. The leadership team is empowering, open to new ideas, takes great pride in the projects they work on, and strives to always do the right thing. We are committed to your success, because your success helps the company succeed. 

Our company takes great pride in providing our clients, subcontractors, and design professionals the highest standards in the industry. We have a collaborative, supportive, empowering culture. All of our employees sincerely enjoy working with each other and actively work to support the team and our overriding philosophy of "doing the right thing." 

If you are an energetic, self-starter with a positive attitude, you will fit well with the rest of the team. We offer our employees outstanding benefits and profit sharing (as we grow you grow), along with the opportunity to participate in helping your favorite charity.
