FIELD AUDITOR

POSITION

VentureSum fosters a family-oriented culture. If you join us, we will give you all the tools to succeed and thrive. Most of our projects and work weeks will require you to travel somewhere for a period of one to two weeks. As a field auditor you will be required to use a portable computer mounted in your company vehicle. The tablet will have proprietary mapping and data collection software with an integrated GPS locating system. 

We map the location of poles to which electric companies have attachments and collect various attributes associated with the poles. Our work is spread out over the region with travel in both rural and urban areas required. Typically, you will be able to ride pole-to-pole and identify the location of each pole based on electronic maps provided. Occasionally poles are not accessible roadside and employees will have to exit their vehicle for a bit of a walk.
