Production Assistant (PT) Sought by Sculpture Studio

Job Description:

Olander Earthworks is a small but fast-paced artisanal manufacturing studio located in NE Portland. We’re looking for a production casting assistant to join our team. This job will involve a mixture of teamwork & solo production, however, due to COVID safety precautions, this position is currently largely solo outside of training hours. 20-24 hrs/week. Hours may fluctuate depending on seasonal needs. Despite the detail-oriented nature of the position, we play music, chat, and generally try to keep a light, fun atmosphere.

Primary Job Duties:

  • Casting & finishing work on our lines of playful concrete sculpture
  • Mold preparation & cleaning 
  • General studio maintenance and cleaning

We’re seeking a reliable, self-motivated team player who enjoys working with their hands. This position requires a strong eye for detail, the ability to follow instructions, and create consistent results in production. Applicants must be comfortable multi-tasking, going with the flow, and taking constructive criticism in stride. This work includes a mixture of repetitive processes while standing and sitting, and the ability to lift up to 55 pounds occasionally. Manual production experience and familiarity with sculpture are strongly preferred. We’re willing to train the right person, so if you don’t have all the qualifications above and still feel you’d be a good fit, we want to hear from you. 

Please send a resume and cover letter to Position open until filled, but we’ll start reaching out to applicants immediately.
