Green Building Job Opportunity: HVAC Designer, Energy Vanguard

Energy Vanguard is looking for an experienced HVAC designer.  If you have strong technical skills and are interested in working for a leader in the field of high performance residential buildings, this might be a great opportunity for you.  

To succeed in this role, you will have:

  • Desire to learn, ability to overcome obstacles, and positive attitude
  • Technical aptitude, including good math skills
  • Science, engineering, or design background
  • Good computer skills

You'll need these essential skills:

  • Reading plans and specifications
  • CAD, SketchUp, or similar drawing tools
  • Understanding of the principles of building science
  • Construction and HVAC knowledge
  • Familiarity with RightSuite Universal or other HVAC design software

In this position, you will:

  • Work with clients to deliver outstanding mechanical designs
  • Analyze building plans and specifications
  • Enter building data into HVAC design software
  • Provide support in other areas when needed
  • Work out of our Decatur, GA office

Energy Vanguard is growing and so is the demand for high performance buildings. 

If you want to be in the vanguard of the green building and energy efficiency movement, you must do two things: 

(1) Email your resume to Energy Vanguard at with “HVAC is the faucet” in the subject line, and (

2) in 100 words or fewer, finish this sentence: “Energy Vanguard should hire me because...”  (You must do both to make the shortlist, as the company is looking for someone who’s good with the details.)
