Job Description

As a field tech you will travel to different oilfield locations in TX & NM, take out the requested equipment & set it up on demand.

Some days are very busy other days not.

We set-up satellite TV, internet, cell phone boosters, printers & intercoms and offer 24/7 support.

It's a lot of driving...it must be done safely and carefully, there's a lot of oilfield traffic and most of the locations are out in the middle of nowhere at least an hour from the office.

Keep your phone charged and ready to answer/text.

This is a 24 hr on call position. Sometimes a call might come in the middle of the night (seldom but happens) and if it does you must be ready/sober to go if it requires.
