StormSensor – Customer Experience - Field Technician 

StormSensor, a climate technology startup, is expanding our team! StormSensor works with cities across the U.S. to track how water moves through their storm, sewer, and coastal infrastructure. Our high-resolution sensor networks monitor flow and temperature every 5 minutes, while our proprietary algorithms and intuitive software provide cities with simple, practical insights to help them adapt to climate-driven risks from flooding, sea level rise, tidal surges, and storms.

We are searching for a Field Technician to join the Customer Experience (CX) team. At StormSensor, our customers are our reason for being. Our objective as the CX team is to do whatever it takes to help our customers accomplish their goals with the help of StormSensor. This means that life in CX brings something different each day—whether it is deep diving into the technical aspects of flow modeling or sensor network design; talking product with our hardware or data science teams; helping our cities understand and act on the data we provide; or working in the field with installation crews to get our sensor networks into the ground. Internally, the CX team represents the voice of the customer to our colleagues and are an important part of the sales and marketing process.

About You 

You love talking to people about water and are passionate about helping cities adapt and thrive in an uncertain climate future. Communication skills are paramount as your job is to work directly with public works employees, engineers, contractors, analysts, scientists, and even the public. You are great at reaching out and following up with customers, partners, and contractors. Most of all, you want to delight our customers through both their product experience and their working relationship with StormSensor, and you enjoy seeing people succeed – with your help, of course!

You thrive in the field and in front of customers, contractors, and crews. You are excited to get your hands dirty while leading and managing field efforts. We work with built infrastructure and physical sensor networks, so there is no substitute for getting out there and doing things.

As a growing startup, we are also looking for high-growth candidates. In your application, tell us about what drives you, your career goals, and how we can help you get there!

In addition, you are:

  • Naturally inquisitive. Curiosity is a strength!

  • An excellent communicator with strong written and verbal communication skills.

  • Able to solve any problem you put your mind to, or at the very least you can figure out the best person to solve that problem.

  • Convinced that anything is possible! It’s just a matter of figuring out how.

  • Comfortable being uncomfortable. You have the courage to get through tough situations and tough times.

  • A mentor. You can communicate collaboratively with everyone, both team members and customers.

  • Able to ask for and accept feedback gracefully and effectively.

  • Able to bounce back from failure and realize you’re not in this alone.

  • Egoless (or at least as much as is reasonable for a human to be). You’ll make mistakes, you’ll fix mistakes, you won’t judge others’ mistakes, and you’ll grow from each experience.

Roles / Responsibilities 

You will be on the front lines implementing StormSensor networks and will work closely with the Customer Experience Managers responsible for the customer relationship. You will spend 75% of your time in the field, working directly with our customers. You will also work closely with contractors and local crews. Tasks include scouting out local issue areas, designing sensor networks, overseeing installations and maintenance work, and helping our customers integrate and embrace StormSensor’s data and analytics into their daily workflows. Your local presence is an incredibly powerful way to understand the unique problems in stormwater and urban flooding management that each city faces. Your end goal is to make sure our sensor networks are in top condition, and that customers’ critical data is being delivered.

You will develop a working understanding of a variety of topics, including urban infrastructure, stormwater and sewer management, flooding, flow modeling, coastal and climate behavior, and water quality protection. You have experience in one or more of these topics already. You will also learn how StormSensor can help cities tackle challenges in any of these areas and will help them design and implement sensor networks to address those issues. You will be able to troubleshoot issues and clearly explain how cities can best use StormSensor’s solutions. You will learn the StormSensor hardware, networking, and data processing stacks in detail in order to diagnose and troubleshoot issues. As a frontline user of all of StormSensor’s products, external and internal, your feedback is crucial to our product development process.

Specific tasks include:

  • Work closely with Sales team to ensure smooth transition to customer onboarding. Guide them through the installation and setup process, ensuring adoption and ongoing engagement throughout the customer’s lifetime.
