Field Service Engineer - San Francisco

Location: San Francisco, CA

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Entry Level

Overview

We’re looking for people who think clearly, communicate effectively, and love seeing a project to completion to take on the role of Field Service Engineer. You’ll be traveling around the country, doing startup and commissioning of lighting control systems. If the above sounds like you/interesting, and you have experience with electrical wiring, you’re on our short list already. If you’re lacking the experience part, but you are one of those people who just really has a knack for completing projects with excellence, you should keep reading!

What you will be doing

Owning the project. That’s a big, bold statement, and we love it. Anybody can be taught to perform tasks, but not everybody has the confidence, professionalism, finesse and fortitude to make a project happen on time with 100% success. Our Field Service Engineers do. They speak with clarity and confidence, take responsibility for both their work and the work of others, address problems head-on, and most importantly allow the client to focus on their priorities while we focus on ours. Again, if the above sounds like you...keep reading!

You will work hands on, in the field, ensuring systems are installed by others correctly and sensors and equipment are properly calibrated. You’ll do field programming and perform incredibly thorough lighting control system testing. Once you’re proud of how well the system is operating, you’ll get to show it off while training the customer on how to use it.

We’re proud to work with vendors such as Lutron Electronics, Cooper Controls, Lumenpulse, and AMX, reducing energy costs and providing convenient solutions to both businesses and home owners alike. And since you’ve made it this far, we’re looking forward to learning more about you.
