Jetblue is Hiring for a BC/EM Tech Strategy and Management Position

I do not come across technology strategy and management positions in emergency management very often. Positions like these signal a commitment to the responsible use of technology by dedicating someone knowledgeable to think through how technology can better support the organization's mission.
