National Mobile Network Field Tester


We are seeking a technically-minded driver/data collector, responsible for executing our testing strategy. Responsibilities include traveling to cities throughout the U.S. to conduct extensive drive and indoor/outdoor walking tests for our performance benchmarking products. A startup mentality is critical for success in this position: a passionate can-do attitude is required as are good communication skills, with a work style that is collaborative.

RootMetrics, an IHS Markit company, is driven by one fundamental goal: to provide insights that help improve the end-user mobile experience. Everything we do is designed to advance that goal and accurately show how consumers experience mobile performance. We provide our information free to the public and offer deeper cuts of our data to the mobile industry so that they can make improvements that benefit the consumer's daily mobile life. We've changed the game and set a new standard for mobile performance measurement, but we're not new to the technology space. As part of the IHS Markit family of integrated, global solutions, RootMetrics brings a management team with deep expertise in technology, mobile, data systems, and brand marketing.
