Overview

Thinking through making, it’s what we do.  We’re looking for a seasoned, senior level leader who cares about the details, understands that design matters and loves leading on the shop floor using collaboration, shop tools and ingenuity.  You’ll be joining a team that designs and produces prototypes, large scale mockups, exhibits, and structures using a wide variety of materials and fabrication techniques including woodworking, metal-working, composites and tooling. You’ll initiate production of components and complete mockups using in-house and/or external sources as required. You’ll be working on projects defining the human experience for the next generation of products in commercial air and space travel, autonomous vehicles, and all sorts of mobility. 

 
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 this role is central in transforming theoretical concepts into physical assets that enable designers and clients to grasp how a given innovation appears and functions in context.
 
Who We’re Looking For
A Team Leader with the technical knowledge necessary to build 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. In addition to leading teams, you can also work on your own and will do whatever it takes to get a project done on time. You sweat the details, have pride in your work and are accountable for results, but are also a creative thinker, able to think outside the box and solve problems on the fly. You are also constantly seeking a better way to get work done.  Finally, you don’t mind hopping around from one project to the next at mockup facilities throughout the greater Seattle area and beyond. If being a hands-on leader in a collaborative environment that’s 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.
