Looking to trade your desk job for some time on the water? You’re in luck.
The Baltimore Water Taxi, now under new ownership, is hiring for about 25 new positions, according to an announcement from Baltimore City Councilman Eric Costello, who represents Inner Harbor and South Baltimore neighborhoods that fall within the 11th District.
Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank’s real estate arm, Sagamore Ventures, purchased the decades-old harbor ferry service last August, eyeing a makeover of the company’s fleet and an expansion to other waterside neighborhoods, particularly Plank’s city-funded development zone, Port Covington. With one new sleek, black, Maryland-themed boat now up and running for Light City and others in the works, the company hopes to grow its team.
“As their fleet expands, Baltimore Water Taxi is looking for new crew members to help them continue their long tradition of service to the waterfront,” Costello wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday.
(Baltimore Water Taxi hasn’t returned a call on Tuesday requesting more details about the hiring campaign.)
A flyer on the company’s social media pages says it’s hiring permanent and seasonal employees, including deckhands and captains. Its website also lists open taxi maintenance technician positions.
To fill the new roles, Baltimore Water Taxi and Sagamore Ventures are teaming up to host two job fairs toward the end of this month. The first will take place at the Center for Urban Families at 2201 N. Monroe Street on April 25 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m, and the second during the same timeframe on April 29 at the UA House at Fayette, located at 1100 E. Fayette Street.
Interviews will be held on-site. Jobseekers are asked to wear business casual attire and bring copies of their resume, a pen and a notebook.
