AASHTOWare Project Task Force Recruitment

 

What We Do:
The AASHTOWare Project Task Force (PTF) provides oversight and direction for the support, maintenance, and enhancement of the AASHTOWare Project software suite.

 

Who We Need:
The PTF is currently seeking individuals interested in volunteering to serve on this vital product task force.  Based on the current AASHTOWare Project strategic initiatives, the ideal candidate would have some design, estimating, and/or GIS related experience.  With that said, the PTF is always willing to consider any interested candidates.

 

Department Benefits:

  • Influence the growth, direction, and improvement of the AASHTOWare Project product suite
  • Proactively incorporate product changes into your department’s operations
  • Acquire valuable contacts with other member departments and benefit from their experience

 

PTF Candidate Overview:
Good software development requires direction from users with business knowledge.  Dedication is important to make sure AASHTOWare Project meets customer expectations and remains technologically sustainable well into the future.   That’s why the PTF is asking that interested candidates must have the support of their agency management to travel and commit the time necessary to serve on the PTF prior to submitting their application.

PTF members are selected from agencies licensing AASHTOWare Project and each agency may have only one representative on the PTF at a time.
