Department Overview

Factories and hotels. Schools and stadiums. Restaurants and retail shops. Truck fleets and railroads. They all have one thing in common: communication is critical. That’s why we are here. We are the Professional & Commercial Radio group, and every day we design, build, deploy and integrate communications systems for customers whose business depends on having the right information, at the right time. Rugged enough to drop on concrete, light enough to wear all shift, slim enough to fit in your pocket, advanced enough to drive the enterprise of the future: these are the products we deliver. We look for the most advanced problems solvers - like you - to help us create technologies that rise to the challenges of our customers. To connect firemen to policemen to emergency responders to nurses to specialists to lives saved. To protect communities, grow businesses and make work safer and more efficient. Bring your talent to the Motorola Solutions Nitro team as we create a private broadband land mobile radio platform for voice and data that utilizes the recently available Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum. The co-op will be a member of a team working on an Azure cloud-based solution for Enterprise customers utilizing voice and data. The position is available with our Chicago based team but will be expected to work remotely during this session.
