HVAC Senior Field Technician
This is an extraordinary opportunity to come in at the ground floor of a fast growing, ultra-high impact CleanTech startup. We at Blue Frontier are racing to solve arguably the biggest sustainability problem in the world with our disruptive space conditioning technology and business models. Air conditioning is the fastest growing use of electricity in the U.S. and globally. If present trends continue, by 2050 air conditioning electricity consumption will be bigger than the combined electricity consumption of China and India today!
Blue Frontier’s patented AC system combines liquid desiccant dehumidification with indirect evaporative cooling to reduce electricity use by up to 90%. The desiccant is recharged and stored when electricity is the cleanest or lowest cost, and later used to deliver cooling when electricity is polluting or costly. These features enable our system to solve an array of today’s largest sustainability problems while improving indoor comfort and occupant health.
Working in the Business Development department and reporting to the Head of Services and Customer Experience, the HVAC Senior Field Technician will be responsible for supporting installation partners for the install, operation and maintenance of Blue Frontier HVAC units in commercial buildings. Initially this will be a very hands-on role, commissioning and operating Blue Frontier’s Pilot systems at a number of sites. The role will later develop into the provision of training, supervision, and second-line technical support for sub-contractors of Blue Frontier HVAC Systems in commercial building environments. To the ideal candidate, this position is an opportunity to bring novel products to the market with the potential to literally change the world for the better.
