This is a full-time and salaried position at Nikolas Weinstein Studios. Some domestic and international travel is required for installations.
You might be—or have the mind of—an industrial designer, architect, machinist, rigger, builder, or artist with technical fascinations and we’ll be happy to hear from you. We are looking for someone with a deep knowledge of tools but who’s also good with people; who has an excellent sense of intuitive physics but also derives satisfaction from getting organized and making things run more efficiently. You will need to have a longview and be able to lay things out in your mind in advance. However, this is not a managerial job at a remove but one where you will be actively participating in the work as much as you manage it. While we are a glass studio, and experience with glass is helpful, it is not mandatory.
This is a hands-on management position. This person will likely spend ±70% of the time on the shop floor and ±30% of the time at a desk. Much of the work that we do is not standard and requires problem solving on a consistent and simultaneous basis.
We are not a fabrication shop that makes things in repetition. 50% of the time is spent on things we know and 50% on ideas for which we are deriving solutions in real time.
Compensation and Benefits
This is a full-time salaried position with a supplemented medical insurance, paid sick/flex time and 401k.
