SPORTS FIELD SOLUTIONS IS SEEKING AN:

Grounds Crew Member

To maintain immaculate sports fields at Baylor University.

WHO YOU ARE

You love sports and you love Baylor Athletics. You spent your childhood summers on baseball fields, your fall Friday nights under stadium lights, and your winters on hard courts. You love the feeling of putting in a hard day’s work.  You’ve got a vision for personal success and a work ethic to get the job done.  You come to work each day ready to make a positive impact and be a part of a winning team. You are meticulous. Others see perfection when they look at your fields, but all you see is the almost-imperceptible divot in center field from the previous night’s diving catch. You love being part of a team. Could you do it alone? Sure. Do you prefer the camaraderie of a team working to build a premium brand? Absolutely.

WHO WE ARE

We love sports fields. How much?  As much as Texas loves its high school football.  That’s a lot.  We know that the difference between feeling like a professional athlete and a high school walk-on is often the quality of the playing surface. We love nothing more than the glimmer of stadium lights on a freshly-cut, pristine natural grass playing surface. Finally, we believe that great people transform businesses. We provide a vision and then ask our people to creatively use their talents to achieve it.
