TrafficCast, the industry leader in travel-times and traffic data analytics is looking for strong sales/business development account executives to help manage and grow our BlueTOAD system, currently used in 45 states.  As the technology is experiencing tremendous growth, we need additional resources to meet demand and fully support our traffic engineering, ITS and planning partners.  Past work with local and/or state agencies in either a consulting or manufacturing role is required, being an EIT or PE is a plus.   Job openings are anticipated in the Midwest, South Central and Western US and will require 50% travel.  TrafficCast offers competitive salaries and incentives, along with a rewarding environment. If you are highly motivated, energetic and are looking for a professional challenge that comes with great opportunity, please send your resume with letter of interest to Paul Misticawi @
