Aperia Technologies, Inc. is seeking a fabricator to work part-time (20 hours/week) on a short term contract (3 months). While you may have CAD and machine tools at your disposal, you should be comfortable with a more expedient, rudimentary approach. This job will call on you to quickly design parts with pencil and paper, and to fabricate them with hand tools. You enjoy taking machines apart and putting them back together clean, and with fresh seals and lubricant. You learn quickly and feel under-utilized when stuck behind a desk and would rather be making chips and striking arcs. Someone like you is just who Aperia needs to round out our prototyping capabilities.

Fabricating and reworking parts
