We provide data, statistics, and support to transportation engineers using innovative approaches and industry leading technology. We are looking for a dependable but extremely on-call Field Technician to service the Bend area, as well as handling field work across Central and Eastern Oregon.  This job would not be office based and would be working directly in the field and in your home.

The ideal candidate would be able to commit to an extremely flexible on-call work schedule with availability to work with appropriate notice. It's important to have reliable transportation to and from the job sites, along with a clean driving record. All field work is conducted using your vehicle with mileage reimbursement. Depending on workload, skills, and willingness, this position could allow for traveling 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.

As a field technician you would be responsible for setting up various types of survey equipment designed to count vehicles and collect traffic data. The work involves climbing ladders and hanging equipment from a height that ranges from 15-20 ft, retrieving said equipment, and using a computer to upload the video data to our reduction center.  Internet access would be required.  In large jobs where tube deployments are involved, the technician may also be expected to assist with retrieval of traffic tube counters, which involves pulling up nails and tubes on an active roadway.

Compensation as an On-Call Field Technician starts at $19.00+ an hour (Depending on Qualifications) with opportunity for increase as skills are developed and quality performance is maintained. This position is expected to be EXTREMELY On-call on an as needed basis and is expected to receive one to two jobs a month.  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 pick up a handful of hours for extra income each month.
