Who are you?
Whether in production drafting or in data operations, you’re dedicated to your course of study and look forward to a career that develops with your understanding. You value progression and are eager to advance your skills. Being familiar with design and digitizing standards, you’re excited to start building out our innovative and cost-effective broadband systems. You’re comfortable thinking in multiple dimensions to create accurate engineering schematics and design drawings to facilitate data transfer. Whether on independent projects or interdepartmental and cross-functional collaborations, your careful deliberation and attention to detail are essential.
What is the HFC Designer role?
We maintain detailed engineering and design drawing files and schematics using Computer Aided Design (CAD) and other spatial or Geographic Information System (GIS) software platforms (Bentley, Spatial, AutoCAD, Smallworld). We’re building HFC broadband plant to support existing and new customers both commercial and residential. Your technical understanding helps ensure submissions are complete, accurate within functional specifications and standards frameworks, and properly documented while maintaining design standards and timelines based on SOWs. Maintaining records and reports, processing invoices, documenting and digitizing construction as-builds for project reconciliation: it’s all in your wheelhouse. This includes assignment scheduling, workflow, and weekly production reports in addition to maintaining the digital plotter, engineering copier/scanner, and other departmental equipment. You’ll source strand and design maps, BOMs, charts, graphs, and sketches of vertical details. These are the tools of your trade, and you use them to simplify, enhance, and support a quality user experience.
It’s about learning and growing
Our drafters come from diverse industries and skills levels, but the common denominator is CAD. We focus on the systems and programs. Our online learning modules provide you a foundation in the cable industry. You’ll learn in the context of the company framework and industry specs and standards. There’s classroom learning on platforms and procedures in addition to partnerships with more experienced designers who understand and can explain region-specific challenges. We want you to have everything you need to succeed.
With a deliberate path to success
Promotion is a very real and achievable goal. If your background is drafting or technical school training, this is an opportunity to expand your knowledge in a progressive career path. There’s a clear career progression for designers, starting with coaxial design, then progressing into fiber design and drafting. Grow your knowledge of industry standards and company-specific infrastructure while, applying different complexities of design. Hone your craft and watch your drafts come to life as part of our expansive network.
What’s required to get started?
The minimum requirements for the Designer in the drafting role are:
Basic knowledge of CAD/Spatial applications such as MicroStation/BentleyComms, Spatial, AutoCAD and/or Smallworld design and digitizing software programs
Ability to handle and prioritize multiple projects at one time with accuracy
Working knowledge of MS Office, including Excel, Word, and PowerPoint
