Company / Organization

TerraCycle, Inc.

Job Description

Want to machine niche bike parts? We’ve got an opening for you!

We’re a small machine shop that designs, manufactures, and assembles parts for recumbent bikes and trikes. We run three CNC mills, a CNC lathe, a small laser marker, and a host of manual machines and tools.

We’re looking for someone who has experience in a shop environment, is skilled at using hand and power tools, and is excited to learn more. Experience in fabrication and machine tools is a plus.

Duties will include operating CNC and manual mills and lathes, using power and hand tools to fabricate and assemble parts, using measuring equipment to maintain accuracy and quality, as well as general shop maintenance.

The first few months on the job will involve a fair amount of chop-sawing, deburring, and assembly, as you gain a better idea of our product lines. Because we’re such a small team, there’s room for growth in about every direction: conceiving, designing, developing, prototyping, testing, crafting, manufacturing, assembling, selling, and shipping parts, as well as optimizing the ways we handle each of those steps.

We work hard to meet the growing demands of our business, so it’s important to us that we maintain a positive, inclusive work environment that brings together a diversity of perspectives and cultures, and allows and encourages each of us to thrive.

Starting wage is $18-$20 depending on experience.
Benefits include Kaiser Health and Dental, and 401k after three months of employment.
