Description & Details:

The systems installer / service technician will build, install, and service systems for aquatics research. The systems are designed to hold zebrafish and xenopus frogs and occasionally other aquaria.
At company plant in San Diego, the install team efficiently builds the aquaria shelving and filter systems, and puts them through testing before they are shipped to the end customer for installation. Since the installers are faced with the reality of challenges in the field situations, their input and participation in this phase of the product is critical. In the field, the installers arrive at the customer research facility. The Product has been shipped ahead, or is met there by the installers. The installers must unpack and arrange all equipment in place according to detailed drawings. The installation involves putting together rack systems, plastic pipe fittings, integrating the monitoring systems with the aquatics equipment, and setting up the probing instrumentation to properly monitor the system. They verify that the systems are running properly prior to completion and customer sign off.
Installers also train the professionals at the research facilities to operate the systems, and to provide service regarding pH, conductivity, salinity, dosing, and other maintenance or repairs.
This position involves travel in the US, Canada, and possibly Europe and Asia. Typical travel schedule is approximately 2 weeks per month. After 5 days of out of town overnight stay installation work, an unpaid “down” day is offered to employees if they choose, but it must be taken within 2 weeks of the travel. All travel related expenses are paid.
