Trade in the mundane for the extraordinary at Margaritaville!

As our Resort Pool Technician, you'll be a vital part of the Margaritaville family, ensuring our Oasis resort pool, shimmering lazy river, residential pools, and spas are always in pristine condition. With brand-new, state-of-the-art equipment at your disposal, your precise, dependable work will set the stage for the unforgettable experiences our guests come here to find.

A typical day in this role will start bright and early to test the resort pools and ensure they’re ready to receive guests for their morning swim. You’ll then move on to testing residential pools and spas nestled into our vacation cottages and answer any maintenance calls along the way as our go-to person to keep things flowing.

But this role is about more than just maintaining pools - it's about maintaining the Margaritaville lifestyle. When you join our team, you won't just find a job; you'll find a way of life that celebrates enjoyment, teamwork, and the satisfaction that comes from a job well done.
