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.

About Prosper Portland
We are the economic and urban development agency for the city of Portland. We focus on building an equitable economy by carrying out a comprehensive range of economic development programs that support small business, improve access to workforce training, and create jobs for Portland residents. We work with partners to drive public attention and resources to different areas of the city, which helps Portland realize capital projects – parks, streetscape improvements, community centers –that would not happen on their own, making it a better place to live for all Portlanders.
Our work is based on four cornerstones: growing family-wage jobs, advancing opportunities for prosperity, collaborating with partners for an equitable city, and creating vibrant neighborhoods and communities.
We support innovative civic solutions that promote mixed-income neighborhoods with both affordable and workforce housing, and that evolve in ways that honor cultural diversity. We prioritize property ownership and real estate projects with communities of color and in low-income neighborhoods to create assets that can be passed from one generation to the next.
