Apprentice Electrician

Apprentice Electrician Role Definition

Proteus Homes, LLC

 This is a part time /full time role for an individual with electrical wiring/ solar installation training and a natural ability to learn quickly in a fast paced Start-up environment.

 Proteus has developed an extremely efficient system for panelized construction, which is applicable to accessory units, single, and multifamily residential projects. We build highly improved wall panels in a controlled manufacturing environment in parallel with preparing the foundation on the site. Once the foundation is ready, we transport floor, wall, ceiling, and roof panels to the site. A crane meets us at the site, and lifts the panels into place where they are quickly anchored. A complete structure, with rough electrical, insulation, and windows, is constructed in less than one day for simpler structures to several days for more complex structures.

 Benefits of the Proteus system include broad architectural design latitude; reduced disruption to neighborhoods; a clean and orderly job site; high-quality construction; lower costs of construction; reduced waste; and significant reduction in the overall construction schedules.


The Apprentice Electrician role is envisioned as an early-stage employee that will become a key part of our construction team; both in our factory and on our job sites around North County San Diego, and that will take on increasing responsibility as the company matures. The Apprentice Electrician will quickly grow into doing electrical wiring independently.
