Proposal Coordinator – Central

Position Overview:
Kiewit’s Central District is looking for a Proposal Writer/Coordinator with a strong writing background, who can integrate with our team and write/manage proposals for some of the most challenging civil infrastructure projects across the United States. 

If you are looking for a career that is both challenging and rewarding, a position where you can work independently but also collaborate with teams, and assignments that provide variety and opportunity, this might be the perfect opportunity for you. 

On a daily basis you will support Kiewit’s technical and managerial staff in the development of effective written qualifications, proposals and other marketing collateral. This position demands a strong work ethic, initiative, and commitment to quality. You will work both individually and in a team environment, and you must have an interest in learning the ins and outs of building large infrastructure projects (highway, dams, roadways, bridges, etc.). 

Kiewit Central District specializes in heavy civil, transportation projects and self performs much of the work done including mass excavation, structures, paving and utilities as a part of often challenging and one of a kind projects for our clients.

This opportunity will support Kiewit infrastructure projects throughout the United States, out of our Denver, CO (Englewood, CO) office.
