The Product Specialist is the expert for support and maintenance of systems related to Gentech's Fareboxes.


Complete Description:

PLEASE NOTE:  This position is an ongoing role that is expected to be multiple years in length.  The initial duration is commensurate with the fiscal funding year only.


This is a position for a contractor to work for the Office of Information Technology and support the Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC).

GenFare systems are InfraRed (IR) based fare collection systems that are to be updated/collected in batch on a daily/nightly basis.
