Join Our Team as a Field Technician!


Are you the kind of person who loves being social? Do you like visiting other workplaces and meeting new people? Is your dream job one where you have a lot of autonomy and the chance to make a big impact on the lives of others? Maybe even impact the lives of people around the world?

If you said yes to these then MākuSafe may be a good fit for you. We are an award-winning safety technology and data analytics company based in West Des Moines, Iowa. Our mission is to make the world safer through technology and data. That may sound like a crazy goal, but MākuSafe has developed wearable devices that gather real-time environmental and human motion data directly from workers. In our cloud platform, MākuSmart, we use machine learning to identify high-risk trends and generate notifications. In other words, we let really smart computers find the really big problems.

We are hiring a field technician to look after and complete the installation, service and maintenance needs of our customers. As a field technician, you will be required to travel to client locations, install new equipment, respond to service requests, troubleshoot equipment issues, and provide technical training on company equipment.

Ultimately, a top-level field technician efficiently manages all installations and service calls while providing high-quality service from start to finish.
