Curtin Maritime is looking for the next generation of seafaring innovators!

Who we are:

Curtin Maritime is an industry disruptor creating great changes by our core values of; efficiency, innovation and integrity.  We are a young company experiencing a rapid growth that is looking to expand while still maintaining our small company values.  We are known as a industry leader with high quality and well maintained tugs, barges, and cranes.  Our team provides customers with a complete suite of maritime solutions, allowing us the great opportunity to work on unique projects in some of the most amazing locations on earth.

What we’re looking for:

Curtin Maritime is committed to creating a high paying career path for our entry level employees.  Due to the diverse nature of our work, new employees can purse a career on a tug boat, from deckhand to captain, operating cranes and equipment (offshore and shoreside), welding and building equipment, or as an engineer on tug, barge, or crane.  Curtin Maritime pays for all professional development and training for its employees, and encourages growth and upward movement for all crew.  We’re looking to hire the best and the brightest talent, folks that are looking for long term career, not a job.

Where we work:

Our headquarters are in the Port of Long Beach, and most entry level employees are based there.  Our crews have the great privledge of serving our customers from some of the greatest locations, primarily: the Pacific Northwest, the Gulf of Mexico, the Hawaiian Islands, the coast of California, and the remote islands of the Pacific Rim.  Some of our crew work a set schedule of 30 days on, 30 days off.  Others work Monday-Friday, and some operate on a standby status, ready to travel as needed.  Entry level employees work Mon-Fri.

A Disclosure:

The work is hard, the hours are long.  The travel (while exciting at first) can be draining.  A career at Curtin Maritime will be the most demanding thing you've ever done.  It will also be the most rewarding and fulfilling. 

Next Steps:

If you’re up to the challenge, apply below.  The application has some questions, applicants that do not answer, or provide single word answers will not be considered.  Our team tries to read every application within 24 hours and reply. (If we decide not to move forward with your application, don’t feel discouraged.  Our hiring needs are constantly evolving, apply again later) If we like what we see, we will set up a phone screen or interview (if we really are interested, we may just cold call you).

We try and perform panel-style interviews with folks from different departments involved.  We generally make an employment decision within 24 hours of the interview and get a written job offer over within a week.  From there, our People Services department will handle the pre-employment process.

Good Luck!

Thank You
