Job Description

1. Do you have so much mechanical skill that it's falling out of your pockets?!
  • Are you sick of working for huge, uninspired companies where you feel like you are a cog in a wheel or a number in their system?
  • Would you rather be part of a smaller company with growth opportunities where you are actually treated like family?
  • Do you like to solve complex machine problems?
