New Projects in Southern California
Job Location TBD / Greater Los Angeles Area

 As one of America’s largest contractors, specifically focused on electrical construction projects, what we do is important, but how we do it is what makes us different. At Cupertino Electric Inc., we focus on relationships, transparency, and results. Our values of People, Integrity, Excellence, Innovation, and Safety are reflected in how we treat one another, how we interact with customers, how we think about our business, and how we approach problems.

This opportunity has unlimited growth potential for the right individual with the capacity to eventually run work in excess of $50 M in scope.
