JOB POSTING - Senior Fabricator
Full-time, Starting January 2021
3+ years woodshop experience, $17 to $22/hr (based on experience)
We are seeking a motivated and hardworking individual to help with the production of our small-batch furniture line. For an early to mid career woodworker, this is a great opportunity to refine their skills within an energized and growing business and a welcoming studio environment.

In addition to their technical skills, applicants should be effective problem solvers and be able to take a set of drawings to create a cutlist and effective machining strategy.
At Coolican & Company, we consider it our responsibility to create products that age well. We believe that furniture shouldn’t be replaced like a cellphone or a pair of running shoes. Moreover, we think that investing in our people and place is as important as the caliber of our craft. We are building durable goods and a durable company that our customers are proud to support.
