Maintenance Engineer

Well over twenty years ago, Cypress Grove Founder Mary Keehn had a dream. She dreamt of a soft-ripened goat cheese with a beautiful layer of edible vegetable ash running through the middle. Little did she know that this cheese would one day become an award-winning American original fueling the growth of one of the most iconic creameries in the country. You might think that this world-renowned creamery already has enough top-quality Maintenance Workers but you, my friend, would be wrong.

Cypress Grove is in need of someone who loves repairing equipment. You dream of finding your way through a labyrinth of electrical circuits to find the solution to a problem. You actually take the time to read the directions first, not after you have tried everything else. The idea of installing new equipment at a dairy or creamery appeals to you. It doesn’t “excite” you because, quite frankly...that would be a little odd. You’ll jump on special projects as needed knowing that the only thing that keeps Mary’s dream from becoming a daily reality is your ability to get things done.

The Maintenance Team works an alternative work week of 4 ten hour days. While training, the schedule will be Monday through Thursday, 06:00am to 04:30pm. Once training is complete, the schedule will be Thursday through Sunday, 06:00am to 04:30pm. This schedule is subject to change depending on repair and maintenance needs.

Ideal Requirements:

  • Degree in technical field, or equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Understanding of and experience with electrical wiring, plumbing and construction.
  • Knowledge of and ability to use various power tools in a safe manner.
  • Solid understanding of computerized systems.
