Your specific activities will include:
Monitoring and maintaining all building systems and mission critical facilities equipment and other equipment associated with the raised floor environment including mechanical, electrical, emergency generators, fire/life safety systems and associated equipment.

Conducting routine, ongoing assessment of the building systems operations.

Performing tests and rounds, and analyzing data to assure the proper functioning of equipment.

Performing preventive maintenance on all building equipment.

Working on building management programs for a mission critical facilities environment.

Ensuring efficient operation of all building systems.

Ensuring compliance with applicable codes, requisitions, government agencies and DLR directives as relates to building operations.

Note: this description is intended to give you a general overview of the position and is not an exhaustive listing of duties and responsibilities.

It should be clear by now that this is a hands-on role; you'll need much more in your background than experience with rounds and readings. In addition, to be an outstanding Facilities Engineer, you will:

Achieve goals independently, but also know when to ask for help.

Remain open to learning new things, including the Digital Realty way of doing business.

Be willing to dig in to discover the cause of issues, and be creative in solving them.
