  • Senior Maintenance Engineer

    Position Overview:
    Crossroads’ campus buildings are in a state of transition.  Ranging from 1950’s-60’s-70’ era light industrial buildings repurposed as classrooms to state-of-the-art science and art buildings with sophisticated control systems, the campuses require that facilities staff be both flexible and well-rounded.  The Senior Maintenance Engineer must possess journeyman-level skill in at least one construction trade (such as plumbing, electrical or HVAC work) and substantial experience in the other trades necessary to maintain properly a wide variety of campus buildings.  Able to carry out work themselves, as well as provide leadership and train more junior staff members in multiple trades, this Sr Engineer must have experience with such computer-based building management systems as are found in our newer buildings, but also the practical experience needed for older building repairs.  Since maintenance workers may paint the lobby one day, replace a faucet or adjust building systems settings the next morning, and then analyze a mysterious leak the next, they are required to have such basic skills as electrician, carpenter, plumber, mechanic, painter, HVAC technician or roofer. For this Senior Engineer position, Crossroads is looking for journeyman-level skills in one or more of electrical, plumbing, HVAC or building management systems, as well as proven leadership and planning skills in a team setting.
