Are you passionate about making a difference and ready to join an inclusive work environment, committed to excellence, to precision, to constant improvement, to new ideas, and to delivering value? If the answer is, “Yes!” then we have an exciting, long-term opportunity based out of our Roanoke, VA where you can make cleaner air your career. 




Montrose Air Quality Services is a division of Montrose Environmental Group, a vibrant young company started in 2012, now with over 1,000 employees in approximately 50+ offices around the country.  We strive to protect the air that our families and communities breathe, the water they use and drink, and the soil that sustains them. Our employees describe us as very flexible, fast-paced, and lots of fun!


Montrose Air Quality Services (MAQS) offers an innovative group of professionals in several air quality disciplines. Our certified professionals provide testing of industrial emissions, testing of ambient air quality, process leak detection and repair services, and regulatory permitting and compliance services to industry and government.

Montrose Air Quality Services (MAQS) is the nation’s largest provider of air emissions testing services. We test emissions from “smokestacks” at industrial facilities of all kinds, all over the world. We work with industry and government to drive environmental solutions that sustain our planet and economy. As a high growth environmental services company, we have a responsibility to the broader, global community we serve as part of our mission.


MAQS is looking for Environmental Field Technicians to join our dynamic emissions source testing team. Our Field Technicians get hands-on experience collecting data while spending most of their time outdoors rather than in a cubicle – real science, outdoors in a hard hat. Entry level team members will primarily focus on teamwork with Project Managers and other Field Technicians in all aspects of testing projects including: preparation, calibration and deployment of test equipment, stack (or “source”) testing/ sampling, continuous learning about test methods, industrial processes, and more.

  • Progressive vacation policies and company holiday to ensure work/life balance for our people.
  • A financial assistance program to help support peers in need.
  • Access to telemedicine and employee assistance programs
  • Access to best rates in the industry to bring your student loan debt down to size



As a key member of the MAQS team, this role will be responsible for a full range of activities including:

  • Ensure project preparation is complete before going into the field; this includes glassware preparation, cleaning procedures, repair, calibration and fabrication.
  • Practice safety methods and procedures, and report all potential dangers, hazards, or unsafe work practices to supervisor.
  • Provide excellent customer service to all clients.
  • Complete and submit all paperwork, forms and timesheets in a timely manner.
  • Assist with laboratory and shop functions, equipment maintenance, and service vehicle maintenance.

  • Ability to work in industrial settings, outdoors, and/or at elevated heights.
  • Effective verbal and written communication skills.
  • Working knowledge of computer software, such as MS Office Word, Excel, and Outlook.
