Diesel Technician I

We are Diesel Laptops, one of South Carolina’s fastest-growing companies! Founded in 2015, Diesel Laptops has grown from 1 employee to 185 employees and nearly $50,000,000 in annual sales in just 6 short years. After outgrowing several buildings, we’ve now put down roots in Irmo, SC, where this position will be based. We’re currently an industry leader in providing diagnostic solutions to fleets and repair shops. Whether it’s on-highway (like tractor-trailers), off-highway (like cranes and similar heavy equipment), or marine (like powerboats), if it has a diesel engine, we help fix it by providing world-quality diagnostic kits, repair information, parts information, and related training services.

If you have hands-on diesel technician experience but are tired of working on the shop floor, this is the job for you! Due to our continued rapid growth, we’re frequently looking for qualified, experienced Diesel Mechanics to join our team. Here’s your chance to help Diesel Laptops Tech Support become the go-to company for diesel diagnostic software!

This job entails assisting our loyal customers remotely over the phone/webchat/remote access, identifying and troubleshooting issues using our diesel diagnostic tools. We can teach you the "computer" side of the job, but we want someone with commercial diesel truck and heavy equipment experience. You will be assisting our clients over the phone, webchat, and via remote access; not working hands-on. This is an in-store position at our Irmo, SC headquarters.
