Job: Assembly/Production Assistant – TerraCycle, Inc.

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

Job Title

Assembly/Production Assistant

Company / Organization

TerraCycle, Inc.

Job Description

Like working with your hands? Like a workplace with an unending variety of things to do? You’ve come to the right place!

We’re a small company that manufactures our own parts and accessories in-house. Our library of products is pretty extensive, which means it takes a few sets of hands to make sure everything gets put together just right.

Assembly runs are usually smaller than 200 of any given part, which means the sub-assemblies range from 30min to 90min discrete tasks. While you won’t be stuck doing the same job for 8hrs straight, we do need someone who can learn and accurately repeat different setups throughout the day. Experience with hand tools is necessary, and you’ll get bonus points if you’re comfortable using a chop saw and a manual lathe.

We need someone who can do a fair amount of self-direction and can spot inaccuracies in their own work. We need someone who can chop aluminum bar stock within a few hundredths-of-an-inch of a given length, and who can be shown various tasks, like deburring the ends of tubing or laser marking a logo, and do them accurately and repeatedly. Eventually, we’ll train you up on higher level assemblies, and expanded responsibilities like materials ordering.

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 $16-$18 depending on experience.
Benefits include Kaiser Health and Dental, and 401k after three months of employment.

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

Job Title

Machinist/Production Assistant

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.
