LOCATION:  San Francisco, CA (office in North Beach) - Our job sites are across the Bay area, and we welcome candidates for most positions from any location where they can reach the Bay area.


OUR CLIENT: Krekow Jennings Inc.
Website: https://www.krekowjennings.com/

Since 1978, Krekow Jennings (KJ) has been fulfilling dreams, by building works of art that our customers live in and around. We are well connected to the elite residential design and construction sector in the Seattle area, and we continue to expand in the San Francisco Bay area. We have been successfully building in the Bay Area for over eight years and our North Beach office has a full calendar of projects. We invite you to join our growing team to do the most exciting projects of your career.

We have had the unparalleled opportunity and extreme pleasure of building some of the most spectacular pieces of residential architecture on the west coast. Our online portfolio showcases some of our projects:

Please note that our most special projects are subject to NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) and do not appear there. It should nevertheless convey that we generally work in a very special niche within the construction industry.

As a General Contractor, we deliver value through transparency, accountability, fairness, and an eagerness to take on assignments that others cannot approach. This is made possible by our staff that lead with high expectations for craftsmanship, integrity, engineering and creative problem solving. We promote from within whenever possible, and we create an environment for our team members to thrive, grow their skills and be rewarded for their talents.


Our Project Managers (PMs) serve a key role in transforming our customers’ visions and design intent into reality. PMs work with the design team during design development. Being an effective listener and communicator is essential! Your empathy helps you recognize what matters most to our customer and their designer. The PMs provide overall management of the disciplines of budget and schedule and quality of the project. They are able to develop a project from preconstruction through project startup, construction and final completion. They work with their on-site crews throughout the project ,while ensuring the highest level of quality.

Our Site Superintendents are passionate, solution-oriented leaders who thrive on unique building challenges that range from design ambiguities, material storage to neighbor relations. They are problem solvers who have the ability to professionally drive schedules and crews, while maintaining respect, safety and achieving the highest possible quality. This role is best served with positive, humble leaders who demonstrate precise communication and a willingness to go above and beyond, ensuring that the design intent and project goals are met. Their days are spent supervising, collaborating, scheduling and mentoring. Computer skills are valuable in this role – MS Excel and MS Project.

Our Project Engineers (PEs) are problem solvers! Since the PEs are so involved in all aspects of the project, they often spend most of their time on the construction site. PEs are often the technical liaison between the client, our Project Manager, the architect and subcontractors to ensure a construction project proceeds safely, accurately and smoothly. PEs help tradespeople interpret the job's designs and design intent, ensure the job is constructed according to the project plans, and assist project controls, including budgeting, scheduling, and planning.

Candidates for all roles should be forward thinking, creative, organized and self-directed. We are seeking proven leaders with prior experience in residential construction, managing employees and subcontractors, interacting with homeowners and working in a team environment – while meeting deadlines!

  • All relevant education and training is appreciated; Bachelor’s degree is preferred.
  • Demonstrated experience in general construction, with emphasis on high-end residential or boutique projects preferred.
  • Complete understanding of residential construction procedures including general shell, interior and exterior finishes, and the ability to thoroughly understand architectural, structural, landscape, mechanical and electrical drawings.
  • Although these are “bags-off” roles, strong knowledge of carpentry with complex projects is valued.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Ability to read and understand construction documents, schedules, and cost reports.
  • Ability to convey details and information through hand drawing/sketching.
  • Proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and Project.
  • Experience with BlueBeam or other PDF based markup software.
  • Process oriented. Methodical.
  • Agility and willingness to walk a project site in all weather conditions.
