Field Engineers…
We continually search for field engineers for the Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) industry, for both experienced and entry level positions worldwide. We have offices in The USA, Europe, Canada, The Netherlands, Brazil, Australia and India, but you can work from your home base with a good access to an international airport. Your role will involve working alone on a client’s jobsite and deploying our state of the art guidance technologies to complete the pilot hole stage of HDD projects. As Prime Horizontal is an international company, our work can take you anywhere in the world. In your role, you will act both as a technical consultant and as an ambassador for the company. We will need a high level of technical ability, excellent interpersonal skills and sensitivity to different working cultures.

The role will be mostly field site based, so a home location with good access to an international airport is essential. The successful applicant must have a demonstrated track record of success and must demonstrate a high degree of professional integrity. A college degree is preferred but not essential.

Starting salaries for all levels are based on your experience. Entry level positions will require in-office training and in-field training. After you pass Prime Horizontal’s in field examinations, you will be sent on solo jobs and will be eligible for promotion to the next level after six months of training.
