In addition to these requirements, flexibility and a willingness to be on call 24/7 every fourth or fifth weekend are required. For the most part you'll work a core, Monday through Friday, 40-hour work week with overtime if needed. You can live anywhere in the Bay Area, and you'll cover stations throughout the area, from San Francisco to Oakland to San Jose. When on call, you could drive to stations located from Santa Cruz to Sacramento, and on occasion, even travel into Nevada. Additionally, you will travel to Colorado for two one week initial training trips, as well as throughout the area for on-the-job training. Initial training will take place during the day shift.


As a Sr. Field Service Maintenance Mechanic III, you will inspect, maintain and repair the fueling equipment and ensure an aesthetically pleasing appearance at Clean Energy owned and customer-owned (fleet stations serving a variety of industries) LNG & CNG bay area stations.
