COMPOSITES SPECIALIST

Job Description
The ideal candidate has a strong background in composites fabrication, with an emphasis on carbon fiber work for marine applications.

The ideal candidate will be able to adapt to design changes and tight deadlines and will be at ease both working independently and collaborating with other team members to solve problems.

 

Key Responsibilities
To assist in all phases of ultra-lightweight boat development, fabrication, maintenance, and repair.

 

Necessary Skills

  • Composites work at a professional level including vacuum bagging, fillets, tapes, secondary bonds, and cored structure laminates.

  • Experience working with carbon fiber, ideally both pre-preg and wet layups.

 

Desirable Skills

  • A good intuition of structures.

  • Familiarity with woodworking and a strong understanding of power tools.

  • Familiarity with metalworking to a marine standard.

  • Experience with vacuum infusion techniques.

  • Willingness to put in extra hours and to adapt to team schedule.

 

Compensation

Compensation will be commensurate with experience and skill set. This is a full time position with benefits for the right candidate.
