Come join the Mosquito Joe located in Montgomery County and get your MoJo on!
Mosquito Joe of Montgomery County is hiring full-time and part-time technicians! Mosquito Joe provides services to make outside fun again for our customers. We provide mosquito control services to residential and commercial customers, repelling and killing outdoor pests such as mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. Our technicians are trained mosquito control experts who travel to customer homes to apply barrier spray solutions that keep their yard mosquito-free for 3 weeks. We also provide services for special events to keep guests chatting and laughing instead of scratching and slapping.
The Mosquito Joe Technician job is a part-time or full-time, seasonal position taking place during the active mosquito spray season, typically from early late March through the end of October. Typical spraying/work hours range between 6:30 AM – 3:00 PM, Monday – Friday and some Saturdays. The number of hours worked per week varies by a technician and may be anywhere from 15-40 hours, depending on technician preference and availability.
Technicians spray customers’ property per the Mosquito Joe policies and procedures. They are knowledgeable of all Mosquito Joe services and policies and fully communicate to customers the expectations, procedures, and tips applicable to the service being provided. Training is provided.
Our technicians love the job as they spend every day outside, work in a great environment, meet some very nice people, and perform a job that changes people’s lives. All work begins and ends at our office in Gaithersburg. You will be driving the awesome Mosquito Joe branded vehicle provided by our office. Most days, our technicians work together as a team; but certain days, a technician could be solo in the vehicle. People LOVE when you show up to service their yards and if you do the job right, you have autonomy in the field w/o a boss breathing down your neck.
Our technicians also say after a season working for Joe, they’re in the best physical shape of their lives. It’s outside work that involves some sweat, but you’re in the sun, not cooped up in an office and it’s not nearly as hard as landscaping.
