The RoleOpportunity Overview
Reporting to the Field Supervisor, as a Service Technician II (Field Service Maintenance Mechanic), you will inspect, maintain and repair the fueling equipment and ensure an aesthetically pleasing appearance for 3 assigned CNG / LNG stations throughout the extended Kentucky area; including Louisville, Lexington and Walton. You will travel from site to site doing equipment and control maintenance and creating positive customer relations that promote Clean Energy. Depending upon your location and the stations you support, you'll visit two to three sites daily.
Each day you will travel to station sites, checking in/out upon arrival and departure, and proactively communicating and building relationships with site personnel. You will take ownership of your stations and their overall care. At each station you will perform a range of duties from painting and/or cleaning to ensuring safety interlocks for shut-down systems are working properly to automatically rebuilding compressors after 5000 hours of use. The lion's share of your duties will be control and mechanical maintenance. Some visits will be short, while others, rebuilding a compressor, for example, will take longer.
In addition to your individual duties, you might be called to help another Service Technician or find that you cover a greater distance when on call.
Specifically, you will:
- Make periodic inspections of fueling locations and equipment to determine that proper and normal operating conditions are being met.
- Check and record operational data such as fluid levels, temperatures and pressures, compare to trends and have the ability to make corrections as needed.
- Install, remove and modify fueling locations and equipment.
- Maintain all fueling related equipment and structures in accordance with manufactures and Clean Energy guidelines.
- Clean and maintain fueling locations by picking up trash, emptying trash cans and dumpsters, hand cleaning and polishing fueling equipment, and painting and maintaining the canopy, lot, islands, and surrounding landscaping in and outside of enclosures.
- Repair, replace, and adjust malfunctioning equipment to restore proper operating condition specified in regulations and repair manuals.
- Inspect, maintain, adjust, repair or replace electrical equipment including electrical wiring, conduit, panels, switch gear, switches, gauges, transducers, solenoids, gas dryers, actuators, motors, meters and controls for safe and proper operating condition.
- Inspect, maintain, adjust, repair or replace mechanical equipment such as compressors pumps, engines, intercoolers, after coolers, heat exchangers, piping, tubing, fittings, filters, traps, gas dryers, fasteners, valves and actuators for safe and proper operating condition.
More Good ReasonsGreen Standard for Sustainability
You probably already knew that natural gas burns much more cleanly than gasoline and diesel, producing significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. But did you also know that natural gas is increasingly renewable, using biomethane reclaimed from landfill via waste-to-energy solutions? Clean Energy is helping companies and public organizations meet aggressive environmental goals.
Proven Strong Leadership
You will join a team of accomplished, seasoned professionals at Clean Energy, led by Andrew Littlefair. Mr. Littlefair served as President of Pickens Fuel Corp (PFC), predecessor company of Clean Energy, which he co-founded in 1997 with Boone Pickens and was Staff Assistant to then President Ronald Reagan in the Office of Presidential Advance from 1983 to 1987.
Clean Energy has the right solutions at the right time, as more and more organizations are exploring alternative fuel vehicles and solutions. For instance, in October 2016 we opened a new state-of-the-art CNG station, in partnership with FedEx, in Oklahoma City. The station that will allow over 100 FedEx Freight Class 8 trucks (big-rigs) to use the convenience of fast-fueling as well as money-saving time-fueling.
In addition to a competitive wage, we offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical, dental and other insurances, a 401(k) plan with discretionary company match, paid time off and more. You may also receive a company truck, which you'll fuel at the stations, a cell phone and uniform.
Keys to SuccessTo qualify and find success in this role, you'll need to be a total package person -- have the technical prowess, a commitment to safety, strong analytical skills, and customer service savvy. As a Service Technician, you should be capable of troubleshooting, analyzing, and correcting -- handling everything for your sites. With your strong background (the job is approximately 70% mechanical and 30% electrical) you'll find your way, but will first need to learn the terminology, understand and respect the higher pressure, always follow safety protocols, and learn CNG and LNG sites. We'll give you the tools you need to succeed through a varied training program, but you should come in, hit the ground running and get right down to the business of learning and performing.
To be the total package person we seek, you should also have these key competencies:
Strong sense of urgency -- a customer centric attitude and sense of urgency in protecting the client's and Clean Energy's interests. Compressors are on an auto-call system and if there's a problem, response must be immediate.
A "do what it takes" attitude -- you should be hard-working, dedicated, and present Clean Energy in the best light possible. Attitude is always important.
