Job Description

Utah Transit Authority
Salt Lake City, UT

Director of Capital Development
Annual salary range: $146,000 to $160,000
Application deadline: Open until filled.
First resume review: Monday, June 28, 2021.

Utah Transit Authority provides integrated mobility solutions to service life’s connection, improve public health, and enhance quality of life.

Utah Transit Authority seeks a Director of Capital Development who is responsible for cultivating projects that improve the connectivity, frequency, reliability, and quality of UTA’s transit offerings. This is a senior-level position reporting to the Chief Service Development Officer and manages corridor and facility projects through environmental analysis, grant funding, and design processes, then consults with peers in construction.

Because this position bridges the gap between long range planning and actual construction, the ideal candidate for the role will have a deep knowledge and appreciation for both planning and engineering. The Engineering Section currently reports to the Director of Capital Development, so an individual with a background in engineering would be useful but is not necessary. More importantly, the successful candidate will have demonstrable experience building coalitions of stakeholders at all levels of government: local city councils, county commissions, metropolitan planning organizations, state Departments of Transportation, the State Legislature, and the Federal Transit Administration.
