Why We Love Working Here!

Mobius Institute has been my second home. I graduated and started working with them. I’ve been involved in every single department, and I fell in love with the experience. One thing that I’ve learned since day one is that our priority are our customers, Training Partners and students. It is not about the money but about the experience we can provide to them. Every single of my coworkers has been a key to the success we are having in Latin America. I’ve learned so much from each of them, and at the end of the day they make Mobius what it is.

Anna A, 2 years

Mobius Institute is a great place to work! I couldn’t ask for nicer co-workers and executives. They're the perfect combination of enthusiasm and hard work. I'm thankful to be part of this wonderful team! I work part-time, and I'm particularly grateful for the schedule flexibility that enables me to address the needs of my family.

In 12 years with Mobius I've seen a huge expansion in the number of people we train, partners we have around the world, training we produce and the scope of the reliability spectrum that we cover. In all of that time there has been one constant and that is that educating people is number 1. This is shown in the standard of the materials that we produce for training, our service and support, and the quality of our partner network. Beyond those "business" factors, we offer so much material online at no cost, we offer scholarships to people to take our training and attend our conferences, and we have helped people in times of hardship to gain skills and get a real boost to their careers. Mobius is a business that is focussed on the welfare of their community and this is a rare thing.

I have enjoyed helping people receive our great training and in turn keeping their plants, factories, sites, etc. safe.

Tara, 3+ years

Mobius Institute's passion for providing continuing education opportunities and keeping practitioners in the industry safe is inspiring and shared throughout the company. The Mobius team was founded by family 20+ years ago, and is still led by family today. The sentiment of “family first” is a staple in our culture, which makes being a team member that much more of an honor.
