Job Description

Working as the Operations Manager is the culmination of fulling the customer’s requirements, coupled with ensuring signal devices are functional and on-site timely.  This position is responsible for the dynamic, ongoing coordination with jobs that need additional service work.  This kind of additional work might be getting replacement parts for signals that are hit by cars to engaging with the software operations team to fix internet connectivity issues.

  • Coordinating Field Service Technicians on delivery and deployment schedule
  • Troubleshooting and correcting on-site performance issues with the functionality of signal equipment on site
  • Work directly with the IT Development Operations staff and/or Control Center staff to immediately fix performance and connectivity issues related to software bugs, weather issues, damage/vandalism, and “traffic issues” (when traffic flow and behavior doesn’t materialize as expected).
