Job Description
Salary: $19.00/hour entry level; experienced commensurate with qualifications and experience.

We are hiring 2 full time full time Field Technicians to be based at our Somersworth, New Hampshire office and work on projects throughout New Hampshire, southwestern Maine and northeastern Massachusetts. 

To thrive in this role you won't need experience - we will train you and pay you while you learn. You'll typically be working Monday through Friday, with occasional weekend work opportunities based on project needs. Most days you will drive to construction sites and perform field tests on materials like concrete, soil, aggregate, asphalt, grout, mortar, and steel. You will often be the only Cole team member on job sites but you will interact with many people from other companies. The work can be physical at times: you will lift and carry samples of soil, concrete, rock and other materials, walk or even push a wheel barrow, and all this often across uneven ground. The work can be conducted in any type of weather, year round, on all types of projects. To perform this job you will need to do some basic math and write or type your observations and test results. Along the way you will learn to read and understand design plans and specifications. When your not in the field you will work in our laboratory or be training for more certifications. Safely conducting yourself and the equipment we entrust to you is a must. 

We provide opportunities for extensive training and job experience to develop your skills and expertise and support your professional development to help you earn industry specific certifications. We also offer opportunities to fuel your growth and advancement in the company including an internal leadership development program, Stephen W. Cole Emerging Leaders Program.  We are a hardworking group with a passion for construction whose focus is to provide high quality services to our clients while helping each other reach our goals.


Interested?  Fill out the application, and upload your resume - and don't forget to include a cover letter to show us your writing skills and tell us why you are  a good candidate to be our next team member!

A few things to keep in mind - you must be legally authorized to work in the United States for any employer, we are not able to sponsor employment Visas at this time, and we do require new team members to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
