  • Willingness to work in a fast-paced, mission critical environment.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • The ability to follow instructions and processes precisely and carefully.
  • The ability to walk around a good deal of the time to perform inspections, to do some work outdoors in the weather if needed, and to lift heavy objects.
