Offshore drilling rig jobs involve working on a crew to operate, maintain, or provide support operations on an oil and gas platform. Entry-level laborers, called roustabouts, clean and perform unskilled labor on an oil rig. Roughnecks are more-experienced deck-hands. These crew members work under a toolpusher (rig manager). In this management role, your duties focus on overseeing rig operations. Drillers operate the drill, while a mud logger examines the material from the hole for evidence of oil or gas. Technicians, such as welders and electricians, have responsibilities related to the maintenance, repair, and safe operation of equipment on the rig.
