Job Description:

Job DescriptionThe Company: Wash Cycle Laundry is a triple-bottom line company and commercial laundry service focusing on serving hotels and other hospitality businesses. We are committed to sustainability and creating "second chance" employment opportunities for employees who are returning to work after facing significant challenges like incarceration or homelessness. We operate laundry facilities in Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. The Role: As a Maintenance Technician, you'll be responsible for keeping our equipment in good operating condition, both by performing preventive maintenance and cleaning and by making repairs. You'll also be the "first responder" to minor issues, working hand in hand with our Laundry Team members to respond to issues such as equipment jams, blocked sensors, and other day-to-day issues.You're a hands-on person who both enjoys solving puzzles and thinking about systems. Your days will be varied -- some days, you'll be figuring out why a belt keeps on "walking" over a sensor, while other days you might be clearing a jam from a folding machine. You'll be working with our front line staff to understand the issues each machine has and what we can do to solve them.You'll have worked with industrial equipment before that includes electric, gas, plumbing and pneumatic systems. You can read error messages, and know your way around an equipment manual. You know the difference between an I/O board and a PLC. You'll know how to diagnose whether a problem comes from a mechanical failure, a blocked sensor, or a problem with the programming, and what to do next after you've figured that out.You'll be our "first responder" to major equipment issues, and occasionally provide emergency service outside of normal business hours. You'll report to our General Manager, an industry veteran who can provide significant guidance and mentorship.You will work creatively to advance our sustainability mission to minimize our usage of water, energy, and chemicals. You'll also work with our production managers and front line staff to build habits that save energy and water. You'll be genuinely excited if you find a way to reduce our water usage by 0.3 gallons per pound (which would work out to millions of gallons of water per year). You'll ensure that our facilities are safe for everybody who enter them. Working with our production managers, you'll ensure all employees know the do's and don't s of working around our equipment and supplies.Responsibilities:

  • Performing preventive maintenance tasks
