    THE REQUIREMENTS

    To be a good fit for this opportunity you will have:

    • Journeyman level experience in mission critical facilities operating / engineering, including experience with mission critical infrastructure (UPS, HVAC, generators, fire/life safety systems).
    • Expert, hands-on electrical or mechanical skill and competence in the area of non-expertise (for example, electrical expertise with mechanical competence, or vice-versa).
    • The ability to:
      • Comprehend, analyze and interpret complex project documents, including AutoCAD, Visio and PDF documents.
      • Manage projects effectively.
      • Develop installation standards and project tracking / management documents.
      • Respond effectively, verbally and in writing, to sensitive issues, complex inquiries or complaints.
      • Interact effectively with managers, clients, customers and the general public.

    • Experience with incident reporting.

    Shift flexibility will be required. Training may last three to six months.

    THE ROLE

    You will join the Shift Facilities Engineering team at this site. This role involves making rounds and responding to issues that arise, but also contributing to all aspects of the oversight and monitoring of building operations including adjustments to the HVAC, electrical, BMS, emergency generators and fire/life safety systems. You'll maintain chilled water, air conditioning, ventilating and other mechanical and electrical equipment. Pivotal to your success will be your ability to troubleshoot and repair equipment and systems independently. Your specific activities will include:

    • Monitoring and maintaining all building systems and mission critical facilities equipment and other equipment associated with the raised floor environment including mechanical, electrical, emergency generators, fire/life safety systems and associated equipment.
    • Conducting routine, ongoing assessment of the building systems operations.
    • Performing tests and rounds, and analyzing data to assure the proper functioning of equipment.
    • Performing preventive maintenance on all building equipment.
    • Working on building management programs for a mission critical facilities environment.
    • Ensuring efficient operation of all building systems.
    • Assisting, as necessary, with scheduling of preventive maintenance, contracted maintenance and general maintenance with minimum disruption of building services.
    • Coordinating maintenance efforts, as needed, with outside contractors, tenant finish personnel and engineers.
    • Maintaining lighting in all areas of the building.
    • Ensuring compliance with all safety procedures as well as utilization of protective equipment.
    • Maintaining ongoing communication with tenants, owners, property management and vendors.
    • Assisting in updating and / or maintaining as-built drawings.
    • Responding quickly to emergency situations (fire, evacuation, equipment failure etc.) and customer concerns.
    • Assisting with maintaining inventory control programs / purchasing parts and supplies.
    • Ensuring compliance with applicable codes, requisitions, government agencies and DLR directives as relates to building operations.

    Note: this description is intended to give you a general overview of the position and is not an exhaustive listing of duties and responsibilities.

    KEYS TO SUCCESS

    It should be clear by now that this is a hands-on role; you'll need much more in your background than experience with rounds and readings. In addition, to be an outstanding Shift Facilities Engineer, you will:

    • Achieve goals independently, but also know when to ask for help.
    • Remain open to learning new things, including the Digital Realty way of doing business.
    • Be willing to dig in to discover the cause of issues, and be creative in solving them.
    • Demonstrate a strong sense of ownership and pride in your work.
    • Bring a commitment to teamwork.
