Job Description:

Operations Center Supervisor

We are here to challenge the transportation status quo and reimagine what it means to travel by train in America.

Combine your experience, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit by joining our growing team in South Florida. Brightline is pleased to offer a competitive compensation and benefits package, and the opportunity to make a difference while making history as the only privately funded express train service in the country.

At Brightline, we believe in creating meaningful connections through exceptional travel experiences. We operate at the intersection of hospitality and transportation and we are on a mission to encourage America to Go Car Free. Carefree. Brightline owns and operates an express passenger rail system connecting major population centers in Florida, with plans to expand operations further in Florida, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and elsewhere in North America. We are the first new major private passenger intercity railroad in the United States in over a century, and we believe our business represents a scalable model for twenty-first century passenger travel in North America.

Brightline currently operates between Miami and West Palm Beach, one of the most heavily traveled and congested regions in the U.S. We are about halfway finished with construction of our Florida passenger rail system's expansion to Orlando, Florida, and we intend to further expand our rail service to Tampa, Florida with an intermediary stop at Walt Disney World Resort. We can operate up to 32 trains daily that are capable of speeds of up to 125 miles per hour, and we own stations located in the heart of downtown cities and major transit hubs in Florida. Our passenger rail system offers a travel option that is faster, safer, more eco-friendly, more reliable, less expensive, more productive, and more enjoyable than travel by car or air.

Brightline provides a unique and enriching opportunity to be a part of a new transportation alternative that is keenly focused on hospitality and guest service.

We're looking for an Operations Center Supervisor who's as passionate about both operations performance and hospitality as we are. This role provide teammate supervision in the Operations Center, the 24-hour a day, 7-day a week home of the team responsible for coordinating many aspects of the operation and the team responsible for delivering world-class guest support.

The Operations Center stands at the core of Brightline operations, communicating service changes with train dispatchers, station teammates, and others within the organization, updating passenger information systems, alerting operations leaders to escalated circumstances, and bridging departmental divides to keep the operation running smoothly.

The Operations Center Supervisor, working with the direction of the Operations Center Manager, is responsible for developing standard operating procedures, building shift schedules, supporting training activities, and providing coaching. The Operations Center Supervisor fills in where needed to ensure appropriate coverage of critical operations functions.

We're looking for a team-centered, enthusiastic and dependable emerging leader whose operational drive will take us to the next level!
