At first glance, there’s nothing remarkable at Ken Garff.  Our uniforms aren’t flashy, and our buildings look a lot like the competition. You may not see it right at first, but if you listen, you’ll hear.  Because listening isn’t just something we do; it’s part of who we are.  It’s how we show that what we absolutely value the most (far more than buildings, uniforms, or cars) is our people.  And we thrive on treating them right. We listen because we believe listening matters.  We’re just different that way.

Will you join us as a new Systems Engineer?  Will you throw your energy and focus behind what we’re doing? Will you live our values and do things differently than you’ve ever done them?  Will you listen, build trust, and foster relationships?  This organization, that started as an idea by a man named Ken Garff way back in 1932, needs one thing to keep its vision intact and its purpose of reinventing an industry moving forward.  It needs you.
