We’re hiring a General Manager


Chuckanut Builders is a Bellingham-based general contractor that specializes in custom, high performance residential and commercial building projects within Bellingham’s core neighborhoods.
We are part of the growing network of Bellingham businesses that embrace the triple bottom line and believe that work should be fun and rewarding. Since founding our business, we have developed a crew who is committed to sustainable building and enjoys the challenge of helping our clients reduce their carbon footprint. Our hope is that our crew looks forward to coming to work (at least most days!) and that our employees can grow professionally within the business.
Weekends and vacations often find us in the mountains, on the water, and spending time with family and friends. Our excitement for these endeavors carries over into our professional lives and the work environment we have created together…and we’re looking for an individual who wants to join in this work with us.




The General Manager is responsible for the management and daily operations of Chuckanut Builders and is the chief of morale. They will divide their time between financial management, human resources, and directing the global project schedule. Key tasks include supervising Project Managers and Site Leads, risk management, oversight of budgets, meeting company-wide profitability goals, creating and implementing strategic plans and more.


Over the past 10 years, Chuckanut Builders has worked hard to build a solid foundation for the business by defining our company values; establishing and documenting key systems and processes (handbooks, checklists, safety program, etc.); and developing a robust employee benefits package which includes health insurance, retirement savings and profit sharing. We are eager to collaborate with the General Manager to innovate and improve upon those systems.

The Chuckanut Builders crew is dedicated to building (and remodeling) better buildings; wholeheartedly engaging in the community and having fun while we’re at it. The General Manager will support the crew by ensuring the business is financially stable, the pipeline is full, employees are supported, and projects run smoothly.
