The ideal candidate would be able to commit to an flexible on-call work schedule with availability to work with appropriate notice. It's important to have reliable transportation to and from the office, along with a clean driving record. All field work is conducted using a company vehicle. Depending on workload, skills, and willingness, this position could allow for traveling throughput the Great Lakes Region and to other areas of the country to assist with field work.  Generally these trips are limited to a week at a time and are fully paid for with a per diem setup for food expenses.

This position will require working in and around active roadways during varying hours, which may include early mornings, late nights, as well as in a wide range of weather conditions. Field Technicians must be safety conscious and will be thoroughly and trained in Work Zone Safety as both a preliminary and ongoing practice. Two primary tasks performed are:
1. Laying down traffic counting tubes across roadways, hammering nails into asphalt and/or concrete to install and then set up traffic counters.
2. Climbing ladders and hanging video equipment from a height that ranges from 15-20 ft.  The tech would also be responsible for uploading the video back at the office to send to our reduction center.

Compensation as an On-Call/Part time Field Technician starts at $15.00 an hour (Depending on Qualifications) with opportunity for increase as skills are developed and quality performance is maintained. This position is expected to be On-Call/Part time or an as needed basis and could range from 5-25+ hours per week.  This position would be ideal for someone that has another job with flexible scheduling, a full time college student that just needs a little extra spending money each month, or someone recently retired and looking to keep busy or pick up a handful of hours for extra income each month.
