Technicians will be involved with scheduling facility/equipment inspections, creating documentation and procedures. Other aspects of the job include:

-Perform "hands-on" maintenance, troubleshooting, repair projects and equipment installations.

-Properly document all service reports as required.

-The facility runs 24/7, must be willing to work nights on 12-hour shifts


Qualified candidates must have a minimum of 5 years of experience in the military field of electrical system maintenance and repair.  Civilian industrial system maintenance and repair experience can be counted as well.  A strong background in systems maintenance, repair, and installation, as well as experience working with maintenance planning systems.

Other requirements include:

- Excellent technical writing skills, such as: operating procedures, test reports and installation project documentation.

- Utilizing planned maintenance systems to include scheduling, supporting new systems and feedback reports.

- Ability to read schematics, technical drawings, and manuals to isolate faults and repair equipment.

- The ability to learn new systems and equipment procedures.

- The ability to work on 12hr shift schedule.

- Computer literate, able to use Microsoft Windows and Office

- Must be able to pass a Background Check & Drug screening.

- Must have a valid driver's license and reliable transportation to drive to work.

- Ability to work well with teams where long hours are required and adherence to guidelines and SOPs are strictly enforced.

This is can be a physically demanding position in that many of the systems you will be responsible for are in remote access locations in the facility (under raised flooring, up/down ladders, etc.) and you must have the ability to regularly lift and/or move objects up to 50 lbs.  You will walk around the facility to take rounds, monitor equipment, and carry/utilize light hand tools.  Candidates must be available to work emergency service and shift work as required.

Compensation & Benefits:

This is a "full-time" hourly position and there is compensated overtime.  The average entry range is very competitive for the Los Angeles area, but the entire compensation/benefits package combined with your professional development and future growth potential in such a dynamic industry are the best aspects of this opportunity.  As you gain experience and qualifications, your pay will increase.  The company provides a competitive benefits package for employees.
