The Office for Community Technology is seeking a Community Broadband Planning Manager (Analyst IV). 

The Office for Community Technology (OCT) is a diverse workplace that encourages collaboration, creativity, and innovation in solving problems. OCT strives to foster a positive work environment in which employees can grow professionally and contribute to the success of the organization. The Office for Community Technology is a small bureau of the City of Portland which also provides staff support to the Mt.

The role of the Community Broadband Planner is to lead broadband infrastructure planning and deployment strategies under the framework of the City’s Digital Equity Action Plan (DEAP) to ensure 100% of residents, particularly Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities, MWESBs, public agencies, and frontline-serving organizations have barrier free access to affordable, high-speed internet.  This position will work closely with the OCT’s Digital Equity Coordinator and regional stakeholders to research and recommend strategies that result in equitable, affordable deployment and access to broadband services. This work will result in a Broadband Strategic Plan for the City of Portland. The plan is expected to articulate and implement community-driven broadband policy objectives that:

  • Improve broadband affordability, speed, reliability, and adoption for unserved communities and populations
  • Drive job creation, promote innovation, improve economic vitality, and expand markets for local businesses
  • Respond to the ongoing and growing broadband needs of education systems, health care systems, public safety systems, industries and business, governmental operations, and residents

The ideal candidate has a passion for equitable broadband adoption solutions, knowledge of innovative telecommunications network design concepts, and a drive to support the community and public agencies working together to make meaningful change.
