What you’ll be doing...

The Transport Engineer (TE) team takes high-level architecture guidelines from the Planning organization, as well as standard deployment guidelines for the transport electronics, and develops market-level deployment plans for the transport network.

These deployment plans incorporate requirements that will support Verizon access enterprise customers, long distance traffic, and back-haul for wireless cell sites and hubs. After initial transport networks are deployed in various markets, the TE team will be responsible for:

  • Designing and initiating additional electronic deployments to continue to expand the footprint in these markets and to maintain healthy backbone capacity.
  • Determining where electronics are needed and for identifying what type of transport box is appropriate (small, medium, large).
  • Working closely with the Planning organization, the Inside Plant engineering organization, the Outside Plant engineering organization, the Power/Space/Cooling organization, and Operations.
  • Market plans will be the basis for developing multi-year annual capital budget plans, and must be detailed enough to justify the capital requests.
  • Creating individual capital funding requests (AFEs - Authorization for Expenditure) and issues Engineering Capacity Creation Requests (CCRs) to initiate US domestic network transport builds.
  • Projects will deploy new transport technology in major sales cities, but eventually, the new technology will tie into existing ultra-long-haul electronics, for a seamless Access and LD network.

You’ll need to have:

  • Bachelor’s degree or four or more years of work experience.
  • Four or more years of relevant work experience.
