Technician for Marine Mammal Program - Makah Tribe (Neah Bay)

The Makah Tribe is seeking to hire a Technician for the Marine Mammal Program.  The Technician’s job will involve a mix of field and office work.  Primary tasks include helping with vessel based marine mammal surveys in Northwest Washington near the Makah Indian Reservation, data entry, and responding to reports of stranded marine mammals.  The Tribe currently has funding for the position for roughly 2 years and are actively submitting proposals for more years of funding.  The position will pay $11.62 to $13.67 an hour, based on experience and education.

Working in Neah Bay is a unique experience but can be challenging for some.  It is about 50 miles to the nearest stoplight and we receive over 100 inches of rain a year.  For those that can handle the environment of Neah Bay the experience can be quite rewarding.

Applications are due to the Makah Tribe’s Human Resources Department by 5 pm on September 16th.  All questions regarding applying for the position should be sent to Tabitha Herda (  Applications and the full job description can be found at
