Here’s some info about working at Vertex:


Your First 90 Days

We don’t require you to have any previous tower climbing experience when applying for this position, so your first 90 days will be a training period. You will receive training in proper climbing and rescue techniques for industrial climbing, CPR, radio frequency awareness training, industrial rigging, general job site safety, winter/remote site access safety, general construction operations, and much more.



Working at Vertex may be a blast, but that’s not the only benefit of working here. We’ve got the basics: Health Insurance, 401k with 4% match, Paid Holidays, and Flexible Time off. But that’s not where the benefits stop. Our employees get Paid Drive Time and Overtime Hours as well as Paid Training and great Career Growth Opportunities.


Company Culture

We talked about making Vertex a great place to work, and we take that seriously. This culture holds true both on, and off the clock. We host some pretty awesome team events throughout the year, and we hope you’ll join. Check out our Instagram (@vertextower) for the event highlights.


Now that you know about us, let’s talk about you.


How to Succeed Here:

At Vertex, our goal is to help keep people connected and to do it well. You will be joining a team that is passionate about showing up every day ready to perform, you should be too.


You should be adaptable. In telecom, plans are constantly shifting. While we do our best to keep our teams updated and prepared, it helps to be flexible and willing to adapt to changing plans.


You take initiative. Doing your part to help the collective team work better and faster is vital. Waiting to be instructed on each and every step and/or being significantly outworked by your peers doesn’t pay off in the long run. There is a lot of instruction during the training period, but even small contributions are noticed and appreciated. *Hint: When you don’t know what to do, use the phrase “How can I help!” and major brownie points will go to you.


You are committed to doing the job well. We are known for our hard work and great results, and as a hard worker with a great attitude, you’ll fit right in.


You’re tech-savvy and catch on quickly. We won’t go into the nitty-gritty details but, we work with technology. Yes, we climb towers and work at extreme heights, but believe it or not, that’s the easy part. One of the staples of this job is hands-on troubleshooting, which involves a lot of problem-solving and critical thinking. While you may not know much about telecom now, you should understand technology, and be able to learn and understand new systems quickly.


You understand the importance of speed, but you can still maintain accuracy. Speed is only a part of the equation, and we take pride in doing our very best work, no matter the conditions.


You know the importance of teamwork and play well with others. You can do the job on your own, but you know that it’s better with a team.


You’re ready to learn how we do things at Vertex. Whether you have experience in construction, or you’re brand new to the industry, you’re ready to jump on board and become a part of the team!
