Electrical maintenance engineers perform maintenance on electrical systems and backup systems, as well as various electricity-powered machinery and equipment. … Electrical maintenance engineers work autonomously with little supervision, but at times also work within the framework of a team environment.

  • Optimize the reliability of assets by implementing advanced proactive maintenance strategies
  • Perform electrical and mechanical repairs on equipment in an efficient manner to decrease downtime
  • Manage teams of technicians that perform scheduled inspections and routine maintenance
  • Collaborate with members of maintenance, operations, and production to improve an organization’s bottom line
  • Certifications to diagnose and repair specific types of equipment
  • A university degree in mechanical, electrical, or industrial engineering
  • Ability to read engineering drawings and service manuals
  • Ability to communicate with teammates to understand their needs and convert them into solutions
