In the Government and Public Safety Division at Motorola Solutions, we develop and provide industry leading radio communication systems for Police, Fire, Emergency services and other government agencies including transportation, energy, and more!

We help firefighters see around buildings and police officers see around street corners. We make supply chains visible to retailers and entire power grids visible to utility workers. We provide the situational awareness first responders need when a moment brings catastrophe. And we help companies deliver shipments at the moment they're promised.

We do this by connecting them to seamless communication networks, applications and services, by providing them with real-time information, and by arming them with intuitive, nearly indestructible handheld devices.

The Systems Engineering Group is the technical lifeblood of the Canadian Sales and Field Operations organization.  Our Engineers bring to life the innovative radio communications solutions that make a difference in the moments that matter.  As the solution architecture and technical consulting powerhouse for Canada, the Systems Engineering Group has end-to-end design, technology consultancy, and implementation responsibility for all pre and post sale engagements nationwide.
The group concentrates on the following mission-critical communications technologies at all levels of complexity (i.e. from small municipal systems to large metropolitan and province-wide solutions):
- Public safety grade mobile voice and data networks
- Public safety mobile broadband networks and devices (LTE)
- Integrated command and control (9-1-1 Dispatch Consoles, Advanced Video Surveillance)

The work we do is meaningful, impactful, and leading edge.

This is your chance to connect to a career that matters.

You will be part of a dynamic, cross-functional client-facing team including sales, system integrators, product engineers, third party vendors, program managers, and senior systems engineers - often on large highly-visible, multi-million dollar engagements.

Responsibilities for the group span the project lifecycle and typically include the following pre and post-sale elements:
- Customer requirements discovery
- Technology strategy development
- End-to-end system architecture design
- Competitive proposal development
- Contract negotiations
- Implementation engineering
- Professional design services

In particular, you may assist Senior Systems Engineers across the country with:
- Customer needs assessments
- End-to-end system designs including core infrastructure, tower sites, 9-1-1 dispatch centres, wireless backhaul, and advanced handsets, for example
- End-to-end system architecture descriptions
- Creating a competitive proposal to meet customer requirements
- Coverage predictions using state-of-the-art advanced tools
- Post-sale implementation
- Coverage and operational testing
- In-field site surveys for wireless backhaul designs
- RF radiation exposure analysis to meet health and safety requirements
- Meet with customer to plan timelines and form strategies to reach project milestones

At Motorola Solutions, ethics and uncompromising integrity are part of our DNA and influence everything we do.  All responsibilities will be performed with the highest integrity and in a way that instills confidence in our customers.

We are looking for creative people-oriented individuals who are passionate and results driven.

The ideal candidate has the following skills and capabilities:

- In the second or third year of a Bachelor’s degree program in Electrical, Computer, or Systems Engineering (or related discipline).  Specialization or electives in wireless communications is a definite plus.
- Excellent communication skills and ability to present complex topics to non-technical audiences
- Previous work experience with a leading player in the wireless telecom or mission-critical public safety communications space (e.g. wireless carrier, telecom consulting firm, large system integrator, or wireless equipment/solutions provider) is an asset
- Willingness to think out of the box and challenge the status quo
- Attention to detail and a flawless execution mindset
- Strong documentation skills and Engineering ethics
- General knowledge of wireless communications fundamentals, two-way radios, and voice/data architectures - both public and private (e.g. 3G/4G, LTE, APCO Project 25) is a plus
- General knowledge of IP networking protocols and security is a plus
- Previous experience with RF coverage predictions, traffic/capacity modeling, and related toolsets is a plus
- Expertise in the standard Microsoft applications required, Visio is a plus
- Fluency in French (spoken and written – high proficiency) is a plus.

This position is based in Markham, Ontario.
