Crusoe is on a mission to help the oil industry eliminate routine flaring of natural gas and reduce the cost of cloud computing and cryptocurrency mining. We build and operate mobile data centers that are deployed into the oil field and powered by natural gas generators that consume gas directly off the well head.

Job Description:
The Gas Generator Operator and Mechanic is responsible for the safe operations and maintenance of gas fired reciprocating equipment. The position is responsible for maintaining, troubleshooting, repairing and operating generators.

Gas generator operators follow a schedule provided by engineers or production supervisors to operate engines, generators and auxiliary equipment in a way that allows for appropriate flows of gas and generation of power. They are responsible for adjusting controls and valves, regulating pressures and monitoring meters. Gas generator operators keep records of meter and gauge readings to determine the temperature, amounts of gas received and dispensed, pressure and consumption rate variations. They may also collect gas samples for laboratory testing.

Desired qualities:
5+ years experience operating gas powered reciprocating engines or gas powered turbines
A high school diploma or its equivalent is required
Any industry certifications are desirable but not required
This position will require driving, and employees will need a valid driver's license and good driving record
