ikeGPS is a technology company that operates in the North American utility poles market. One of our products, PoleForeman, is a Structural Analysis Engineering software application used to determine pole length and class in the design of overhead utility lines. The core responsibility for this position is instructing PoleForeman software training classes. To be successful in this role, a candidate must understand the fundamentals of overhead line design, pertinent aspects of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and General Order 95 (GO95).
As an IKE Training Instructor, you will develop and instruct training curriculums on the use of the PoleForeman software as well as provide training for Overhead Distribution Line Design and Joint Use Make Ready Engineering. Your teaching skills, industry knowledge, and subject matter expertise will be used to train personnel who design, construct, and maintain overhead utility lines at electric utilities, engineering firms, and communication companies. In addition, you will host internal training for new hires or other employees who seek to learn.
In this role, you will instruct both virtual and in person training sessions. You will be responsible for updating training content as needed to reflect updates in the software as well as updates in safety codes (NESC / GO95).
While preferably this position will be in Chelsea, Alabama, ikeGPS has a “Work Anywhere” policy that is an option for this position. Work Anywhere would require reliable high-speed internet as well as access to a major airport for travel.
Training is an opportunity to demonstrate our knowledge and industry expertise, both of which build credibility and future business opportunities for our company.
