Human Resources

We're people-people.

MTE believes in serving people — members and employees. Our human resources team consists of professionals who believe in supporting their coworkers who work with our members every day. This support extends to more than just employee benefits but includes worker safety, legal services, employment, and so much more.

From senior leadership to front line workers, we've created a team player culture to ensure we are serving our members and each other. This culture allows us to make life better for our members, communities, and employees.


As a local electric cooperative, MTE exists to make life better for our members. We’re more than poles and wires, substations and electrical grids — we’re an organization committed to the communities we serve. This means our employees have a people-first mentality that allows us to provide electricity, but also motivates us to create member, community, energy and environmental programs to better serve the communities where we live.

We’ve crafted an ideal team player atmosphere inside MTE. Our employees show humility because they believe our work is bigger than any one person. We practice emotional intelligence or people smarts to create a welcoming environment for coworkers, members, and contractors. And finally, we work with ambition and a hunger to make our cooperative better.

There are many benefits to working for MTE, but the biggest benefit is working with a group of people focused on the same purpose — to make life better for our members and communities.

We’re committed to preserving and improving our team culture in every department — and you might be the perfect fit. If we sound like a place you’d like to work, check out our job and internship opportunities.
