CAI is a 100% employee-owned company established in 1996, that has grown year over year to almost 500 people worldwide. We provide commissioning, qualification, validation, start-up, project management and other consulting services to FDA regulated and other mission critical industries.
 
CAI is seeking motivated Project Managers to support biotech and pharmaceutical projects across the country.

As consultants to the entire industry, our employee owners are driven by the challenge and constant diversity of assignments, while having the stability of a company that has never had a lay off.
On any given day we could be responsible for a myriad of things involved in starting a facility, equipment or process up including protocol writing and execution, FAT's SAT's, walk downs and development of summary reports at the client site. 
 
To get to those diverse projects our people can experience heavy travel. Although some people rarely travel, it is the exception to the rule. It’s not unusual for our employee owners to travel locally M-F to client sites. If the distance is greater, or spans more time zones, we sometimes travel to the site for 10 days then come back for 4. We don’t want to spend our free time in airports or doing laundry to pack again, and we don’t expect our employees to.
