Salary: Depends on Experience

Location: Fort Yates, ND

Position Duties:

Build and maintain the infrastructure supporting wireless communication systems. Wireless communication systems encompassing broadband WiMAX systems, HSPA+/LTE systems, microwave backhaul systems, VoIP business systems, installation and maintenance of fiber connections, two-way radios, cellular phones, beepers, wireless Internet (WiFi) access, hand-held computers, vehicle location equipment, marine radios, satellite systems and related equipment, and other personal communications devices. Technicians are needed to maintain the complex networks relaying wireless signals as well as to maintain and repair personal communications devices themselves.

Wireless communications technicians must be familiar with electronics, high speed broadband technologies, digital radio technology, and cellular systems. Use of measuring and diagnostic tools to test, adjust and repair electronic equipment is required.
Technicians must be able to create work orders that describe equipment failures and they must be able to talk to equipment operators to determine what problems exist with the equipment. If the equipment has serious problems, technicians must be able to use schematic drawings and other written specifications to locate and repair problems.

Technicians also do regular maintenance work on personal communication devices used by corporate clients as well as periodic work to maintain the wireless networks. Will also work at repair facilities, in stores, or in service centers, where they repair wireless communication devices. Also will deal with consumers advising them when it make more sense to replace rather than repair a wireless communication device.
