Project 100, the ambitious multimodal transportation system beginning in Downtown Las Vegas, is seeking several people to fill a variety of new jobs.
These nine job listings were found online today: head of technology & product; operations & logistics manager; station development & operations manager; fleet manager; alternative transportation manager; general manager; members happiness manager; head of finance & risk; and chief of staff.
Job descriptions summarize how Downtown Project is trying to reach its professed goal of providing enough transportation options, including electric vehicles, bicycles and helicopters, to allow people to give up their personal vehicles and “be more connected to your neighborhood.”
“We are building the largest collaborative consumption transportation system ever conceived,” it says. “The majority of our system relies on a fleet of 150+ vehicles including 100 Tesla Model Ss, a collection of short-range electric vehicles and shuttle buses. As you can imagine, there are a lot of legal, financial and operational challenges that need to be solved and managed on an ongoing basis.”
Earlier this year, the estimated cost for membership in the system was put at $400.
For more information about requirements for the listed jobs listed and how to apply, go to Project 100's website.
