Site Operations Department
The Site Operations Department is responsible for the overall health of all mechanical and electrical systems, building maintenance, and performance of all data modules in our data centers. The team is staffed 24 x 7 onsite with Critical Facility Technicians (CFTs) on each shift. This team is the face of Vantage to our customers and the first line of defense regarding the uptime of our campus as well as the performance of our customer installations. Using a Critical Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to plan and track work needed, the Site Operations department performs all preventative and corrective maintenance. Our culture expects and rewards team performance that engages directly with the customers and the facility infrastructure. This is a team that does most of the actual work versus calling upon vendors.
The Manager, Chief Engineer will manage a team of CFTs with direction from the Director of Operations. This position will oversee workflow/work order management, training plans, event management, customer communications, hiring and performance management of their assigned CFT team. Our CFTs are respected, well-trained, customer-focused and some of the best facilities engineers you will find in the industry. This position will leverage your extensive experience to help guide the team in some of the more challenging aspects of maintenance in areas such as: critical MOP development, testing plans, sparing approaches, capital planning, end-of-life replacement and expansion of existing facilities while eliminating risk to our customers and their businesses.
While this position is leadership-focused, the intent is to be a Chief Engineer first and a people manager second. And while this role is not a ‘regular’ Critical Facilities Engineer position, it will suit someone who could pick up the tools and do the job, if needed.
