The ideal candidate for the Master Fabricator position is a wizard at turning ideas into reality. You'll have a range of tooling at your disposal to do so, meaning you should at the least be highly proficient on table saw, router table, chop saw and MIG welder operation as well as the use of templates, multiple materials (MDF, expanded PVC, ABS steel and aluminum).
Experience with CNC router and laser machines is a plus, but not required for this position. We can teach you. Your fabrication fundamentals, though, must be solid.
Experience working in/on European vehicles is important as many of our clientele drive Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, etc. We also work on many popular domestics, including all the well-known SUVs and trucks.
Most importantly, you should come with the ability to uphold a high standard of installation quality and manage time well. You should be a person who is not 'in a rush' and at the same time 'not on a vision of an art project' with your work. All jobs have a clear work order, system design and outcome expectation that are very achievable for the individuals with the requisite experience and skill set.
If you've been to Mobile Solutions MasterTech trainings, this is also a big plus because you'll already understand how we do things fabrication-wise. Everything has a purpose and function thought through in the design phase.
