More Good ReasonsProfessional development
Our service training center is located in Denver so you'll have the advantage of location and access to outstanding training. Beyond the hands-on technical training, you'll work extensively with your supervisor for the first 90 days and ongoing. You bring the background and initiative and we'll ensure you have the tools and training needed to excel.
We hire with an eye to the future, always looking for individuals who can grow right along with our company. Success in this role could set you up to take on additional responsibilities and/or and advance with Clean Energy.
You'll join a team that is collaborative and maintains a positive, upbeat approach. You'll find people have great attitudes and are willing to share their knowledge and insights.
Compelling value proposition
You probably already knew that natural gas burns much more cleanly than gasoline and diesel, producing significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. Clean Energy helps companies and public organizations meet aggressive environmental goals. But natural gas fuel is cheaper (~$1.50 cheaper per gallon than diesel), domestically abundant, and it works. And using natural gas reduces America's dependence on foreign oil.
Proven strong leadership
You'll 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.
