The Technical Build Specialist is responsible for producing sales-quality mockup and exhibit structures using conventional woodworking, metal-working and fiberglass tools and processes. The TS initiates production of components and complete mockups using in-house and/or external requirements as required. In this position you’ll work at the leading edge of commercial aviation, collaborating with the world’s largest aerospace company to imagine and build the future.
Why We Need This Position
It’s great to have good ideas, but you can’t really know how they’re going to pan out until you see the real deal. Our approach to design is ‘thinking through making’, and the TS plays a central role in transforming theoretical concepts into prototypes that enable designers and clients to grasp how a given innovation appears and functions in context.
Who We’re Looking For
You have the technical knowledge necessary to construct mockups, exhibits and displays from rough sketches, technical drawings and verbal instructions. You can read electronic CAD drawings and have a solid grasp of construction math and formulas. As a child, you loved Legos and Erector sets; as a teen, you dismantled and rebuilt bicycles, car engines, anything you could get your hands on. You love working with hand power tools, power equipment, manual metalworking machine tools, and other machine tools; you’re agile with a forklift; and you don’t mind shimmying up and down ladders and heaving heavy objects around. You like to work on your own and will do whatever it takes to get a project done on time. You sweat the details, but are also a creative thinker, able to think outside the box and solve problems on the fly. Finally, you don’t mind hopping around from one project to the next at mockup facilities throughout the greater Seattle area. If building the future sounds like your idea of fun—and you have the know-how to get the job done—we want to hear from you.
