The successful candidate will work to design and assist in the implementation of safety critical telecommunications and messaging systems.  They will orchestrate the end to end process of telecommunication and messaging designs starting from defining technical requirements, selecting of products, producing engineering drawings, developing commissioning procedures to install telecommunications and messaging systems, assessing quality of vendor installed systems, and finally as-building engineering drawings and documentation.  They will collaborate with other teams on training, testing, troubleshooting, and rolling out robust and efficient messaging solutions that integrate well with our other systems.  This coordination takes place not just within the messaging team, but across organizational boundaries up to the Interoperability Technical Committees (ITC) level.

Position Accountabilities

- Feeds back comments and concerns to the Interoperability Technical Committees (ITC) (i.e. ITC Messaging, ITC Radio, ITC Federation, etc.) regarding interoperable design requirements, implementation feasibility, and issues discovered during the implementation  and testing phases.
- Develops telecommunications and messaging system engineering design drawings outlining  equipment interconnection details.  Details that allow telecommunications system installation vendors or internal team members to construct systems that comply with the  technical specifications
- Design and configuration of ITCR 220 MHz radio and operation

- Assists Supply Services in the selection of telecommunications and messaging systems products and installation service providers that comply with technical specifications.
- Conducts testing of pilot telecommunication and messaging systems to validate system designs.  Where appropriate, feeds back issues uncovered to the vendors or the ITC, or develop workarounds when no vendor solution is forthcoming.
