Working with Green Steeze

Environment is Key

As a small business that takes care of the environment, our work environment is the most important part of sustaining, growing, & loving what we do. Your contributions to the team are valued, training is thorough & certified, & strengths are appreciated. Folks with positive attitudes & respect for one another make work fun & fulfilling. You’re not a replaceable body at Green Steeze. Everyone is respected, heard, safe & accepted. We work & grow together, as we design & forage an environment of collaboration & positive energy.

What We Need: People who care about doing a great job, supporting the environment, and working in a team with good vibes. We're growing, so we want people who can grow with us! 

What We Don't Need: Don't kill our vibes. We like to laugh and enjoy our various projects.  People who just want any old job, don't work well with others, no environmental interest, hate the outdoors, think insects are gross, want to kill anything that moves, or in general "hate working"... or you find you have hate in your heart for people because you don't "agree" with their lifestyle.. this is really not the place for that kind of stuff.
