  • Communication: our digital signage program is deeply cross-functional, and requires us to communicate with everyday riders, software teams within CTD, several MBTA departments, engineers, electricians, and vendors. Successfully interfacing with all of these groups requires the ability to communicate concisely and effectively
  • Attention to detail: this position will require someone with a relentless attention to detail, to map the details of a stop or station, manage feedback from a variety of stakeholders, and keep construction projects on track
  • Proactivity & a desire to learn: we're solving new problems in public transit and in transit technology, ones for which there is no playbook. This position requires someone who's curious, creative, and excited to dive into new areas of work
  • Although we're mostly interested in your ability to do the work, here are some guidelines on the capabilities and experience we think might be most suited for this role. Please keep in mind that the experience guidelines are advisory, and not required
  • Approximately 2-4 years of professional experience in project management
  • Experience managing projects that involve a combination of software, hardware, and physical infrastructure (e.g., construction, engineering, etc.) is preferred
  • Experience managing projects that involve both public and private parties is preferred

  • Identify optimal screen mounting locations at MBTA bus stops and stations. This will include diagramming and documenting locations across the MBTA system to understand rider flows, train/bus positioning, accessibility considerations, solar coverage, and more. You will take ownership of existing processes and push us to improve how we identify where screens would be most helpful to riders
  • Manage relationships with key stakeholders & vendors. This will include managing relationships with MBTA departments sponsoring our work, with all of the departments involved in reviewing & approving changes to stops or stations, with municipal partners, and being CTD's point-of-contact for construction teams of engineers and electricians
  • Work with MBTA construction teams to plan, schedule, & execute installations. This will include mocking-up low-fidelity construction drawings or reviewing/approving formal ones; managing construction and material delivery schedules; and being CTD's representative during screen installation activities
