    • The Office of Transportation Planning (the Office) needs team members who can draw
      connections between planning concepts, ideas, existing projects and organizational strategies.
      For example, when scoping a new project or study, the ideal candidate would consider
      contemporary planning practices, incorporate innovative planning strategies all while relating
      the new project to existing planning projects and the strategic direction of the Office of
      Transportation Planning. Candidates should also be familiar with current transportation specific
      software and planning tools.
    • Team members are expected to have strong problem solving skills that include the use of
      research, quantitative analysis, reasoning and judgment.
  • Ensure good customer service
    • Each team member of the Office is expected to represent the Office internally and externally
      and good customer service is expected. As an Enterprise Service it is critical that the rest of
      MassDOT, as internal customers, can rely on the Office for on‐time, on‐budget, accurate,
      creative and highquality deliverables. Externally, our customers are the residents, businesses
      and visitors to the Commonwealth. The Office is privileged to work on behalf of the
      Commonwealth to plan and study transportation issues and investments.
  • Communicate clearly and transparently
    • The candidate should have exceptional verbal and written communication skills whether
      drafting original documents or reviewing, revising and editing deliverable documents from
      others. The Office relies on good communication to fulfill its mission and operate efficiently and
      effectively. This includes rapid production of memos, slide decks and ability to succinctly provide
      verbal briefings. One of the most essential elements of this role is being able to communicate
      information between different partners and stakeholders. For example, explaining technical
      analysis produced by engineering consultants to senior leadership or a community stakeholder
      in plain language that is easy to understand and respond to. The diversity of information and
      audiences relevant to this position make the ideal candidate one who can both understand and
      communicate across a range of topic areas, but also learn and appreciate the perspectives of
      these varied audiences.
  • Manage to budget and schedule
    • The Office uses public resources to complete transportation planning studies and reports, and
      also often employs private consultants in these efforts. It is imperative that the candidate know
      how to manage a budget and schedule ontime and within budget. Additionally, candidates will
      be expected to be able to develop and negotiate scopes and budgets; direct and manage

      initiatives.
  • Develop and maintain strong professional relationships
    • The Office is considered an Enterprise Service for all of MassDOT with the modal divisions as our
      clients. This means that the team members in the Office are expected to work well with
      individuals and departments across the agency and with external stakeholders including federal
      partners, and positively represent the Office through their professional conduct.
  • Work independently
    • The fastpaced environment of the Office can sometimes diminish direct interaction or oversight
      on individual activities. The candidate should be able to independently execute tasks both with
      direct support as well as with more limited oversight. The Office fosters a work culture that
      allows each team member to work in theirpreferred style with the expectation that outcomes
      will be delivered on‐time and be high‐quality.
  • Encourage and sustain positive team dynamics
    • The nature of transportation planning requires collaboration and teamwork. The ideal candidate
      should like to work in teams and know how to create and improve team dynamics to ensure
      good transportation planning.
  • Be flexible and open‐minded
    • Transportation planning requires that all ideas, concepts and perspectives are considered. A
      good planning process should not be predetermined. The candidate should be open to new
      ideas and processes and be inherently flexible. This flexibility and open‐mindedness will
      contribute to creativity and innovation and allow planning activities to be completed without
      prejudice based on personal beliefs or ideology.
