The Program Manager for Technical Assistance and Implementation will manage and lead the team responsible for providing technical assistance for over $18 billion in transportation electrification programs. The Joint Office's technical assistance and implementation team will tap the best and brightest to help states, cities, transit providers, and school districts electrify transportation by providing a combination of subject matter expertise and regional liaisons to ensure an effective and coordinated approach to generational investments in U.S. transportation and energy infrastructure.
The Deployment Manager for Community Charging Technical Assistance will lead development and delivery of technical assistance to local government and other entities that are installing and operating community EV charging infrastructure to ensure that charging is multi-functional, conveniently located, supports local travel, and meets the needs of all members of communities regardless of whether they ride or drive.
The Deployment Manager for Corridor Electrification Technical Assistance will lead the development and delivery of technical assistance to state governments and other entities that are installing and operating high-power EV charging along highways and major corridors. This position will support implementation of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program.
The Deployment Manager for School and Transit Bus Electrification will lead technical assistance to transit operators and school districts that are seeking to electrify their fleets, maintenance facilities, infrastructure, and workforce. This position will be the Joint Office’s key interface with these stakeholders and the primary interface with DOT’s Federal Transit Administration and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administering over $10.6 billion of investment to reduce emissions in our transit and school bus fleet.
The Program Manager for Standards and Reliability will manage and lead the team that is tasked with improving the overall EV charging experience and to specifically ensure that investments made through the BIL result in a convenient, affordable, reliable, and equitable charging network. The Standards and Reliability team works with DOE national labs, DOT Volpe Center, and external stakeholders including the private sector to improve reliability, security, and interoperability of our nation's EV charging infrastructure.
The Deployment Manager for Standards and Reliability will lead the Joint Office's portfolio of activities related to the development and enhancement of standards related to EV chargers and their interactions with vehicles and the grid. Key areas of emphasis for this role are increased interoperability and cybersecurity and decreased friction for users of the system.
The Deployment Manager for EV Charging Reliability will formulate and lead projects and activities that will enhance the overall uptime of EV chargers at levels greater than 97% and ensure that all federal performance requirements are being met.
The Program Manager for Data and Analysis will manage and lead the team responsible for analytics, modeling/forecasting, market, policy, and technology assessments, as well as the effective stewardship of large amounts of data collected as part of transportation electrification programs in the BIL. The Data and Analysis team serves as an independent reviewer of the performance of key BIL investments related to EV charging and supports program and project review within DOE and DOT as appropriate.
The Deployment Manager for EV Charging Analysis will ensure that the Joint Office has strong insights into the performance of the U.S. EV charging and zero emissions fueling network, foresight into future needs of this infrastructure, and a keen understanding of interactions and implications on the electric grid. This position will also identify needs and solutions that enhance availability, equity, and accessibility of the EV charging network towards greater mobility outcomes.
The Deployment Manager for Transportation Electrification Data will lead the development, maintenance, and operations for a detailed and diverse publicly administered EV charging database. This position will be responsible for the architecture, security, open data standards, and functionality of all EV charging data collected through the Joint Office and will work closely with the Deployment Manager for EV Charging Analysis to leverage this data for modeling and analysis that will identify network performance, future needs, and federal program refinement.
The Program Manager for Communications and Education will manage and lead a team that is responsible for externally facing educational activities of the Joint Office. This team will strive for strategic, creative, and impactful engagement that enhance the delivery of the Joint Office mission. This will include communications through a variety of media, facilitating key stakeholder engagement, supporting the EV Working Group that will advise the Joint Office Executive Director and the Secretaries of Energy and Transportation on electric vehicle policies and programs, and lead efforts to develop and upskill the American workforce to enable an electrified transportation future.
