OUR CLIENT:

The company products bring an unprecedented level of performance and simplicity to the growing need for traffic monitoring on freeways, arterials and parking garages, and traffic signal controls at intersections.

A leader in ultra low-power wireless sensor networking, the company has developed a family of vehicle detection products. Wireless sensor networking is a breakthrough technology that combines sophisticated networking software with highly integrated radio and sensor chips to enable sensing applications on a scale - and at a cost- unthinkable until now.

With this product, it is now possible to deploy vehicle detection at a much higher density and at a fraction of the initial installation and maintenance costs of currently prevalent technologies such as inductive loops, video cameras, and radar.

The company seeks a Director of Product Support to manage the product support group and manage large product deployments.
