WHAT DRIVES YOU ::
You are often criticized for taking things apart and putting them back together. You're mechanical, tough as nails, and overly methodical. In this cross-functional role, you will execute on projects, ideas, and designs that have been developed along our production pipeline. You make yourself valuable by doing so with thorough execution, speed, and razor sharp accuracy. You find immense delight in seeing raw materials transform into a finished product.
You are likely a high school graduate with some college experience, or a college graduate. You've held more tools in your hands lately than writing utensils; and are rarely more than a few feet away from a toolbox . Setting your own goals, and stopping nothing short of them keeps you grounded. You rarely wait for instruction to take action, and have slight OCD tendencies. You're also passionate about people and making things look their best. You long for campfires, coffee and weekend hammocks.
THE NUTS & BOLTS ::
You'll be part of our production team and work closely with our designer(s) , the traffic director, and the client. Executing projects with accuracy, speed, and impeccable scrutiny for detail, will be your North Star.
