Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Do you excel in an environment that values exploration and discovery? We have a universe of opportunities waiting for you!
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is NASA's lead center for robotic exploration of the solar system. Our core competency is the end-to-end implementation of unprecedented robotic space missions to study Earth, the Solar System, and the Universe.JPL, located in Pasadena, California, has a casual, campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.
We are proud to be part of NASA and Caltech, as we explore the universe and make history through new discoveries.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is the world's leader in deep space exploration. Everyday JPL inspires millions of people with our daring missions to unexplored reaches of the universe. JPL employees exemplify hard work, creativity, and a desire to achieve the impossible. Each day we strive to continue what JPL has been known to successfully do best: explore our vast universe and teach countless individuals about space! If you are capable of committing yourself to this extraordinary and awe-inspiring environment, then JPL is the place for you.
As an Energy Manager in Facilities Maintenance and Operations Section. You will be responsible for the collection and validation of information and data from multiple sources. In addition, you will perform mechanical and root cause analysis on utility and mechanical applications related to energy consumption. You will be responsible for analyzing data to determine strategies and report these findings to management. The selected candidate will have the responsibility of analyzing and managing all utilities for input into various reporting tools for both JPL and NASA. You will develop and conduct sustainability measures, and report to NASA regarding energy consumption measures, etc.
You will also be committed to evaluating the quality of work performed by Maintenance and Operations (subcontractors). Identify a representative random sample of PMs, PT&I and other work, cleanliness of equipment rooms and related work areas, etc. Recognize deficiencies in work performed and reference contract clauses in any case where the subcontractor is non-compliant. Maintaining and generating reports to verify subcontractor performance. Responsible for identifying energy conservation projects beyond the scope of the subcontractor's area of responsibility and submit the projects to Engineering and Construction for implementation. Analyze the Facilities Condition Assessment program, Deferred Maintenance studies, and support numerous miscellaneous audits as required. Also perform design reviews and plan checks for new construction and reconstruction projects. In addition, you'll be participating in punch walks and report your findings.
In addition, annual utility forecasting, energy conservation project development and reporting to NASA are requirements for this position. Participation on team assignments with other NASA Centers and engineers to review, update, and develop facilities procedures, guidelines, standards, and practices. Leadership of Energy Management working groups and the creation of Energy Budgets and Forecasting models.

Do not go where the path may lead," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. "Go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail." That could be the motto of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Trailblazing has been the business of JPL since it was established by the California Institute of Technology in the 1930s. America's first satellite, Explorer 1 which launched in 1958, was created at JPL. In the decades that followed, we sent the first robotic craft to the moon and out across the solar system, reconnoitering all of the planets. Pushing the outer edge of exploration, in fact, is the reason JPL exists as a NASA laboratory.
