We are looking for a full-time Wet Room Assistant to work in our studio wet room - where our jewelry pieces are cleaned, textured and tumbled. This role is all about multi-tasking and not for an aspiring jeweler.

Please apply if you:

  • Are great at juggling many time sensitive operations at once - this isn’t like deadlines to hand in reports, this is physically time-sensitive, where events need to happen at the right time, and you are watching many pieces at one time

  • Can keep multiple priorities and details in your head clearly

  • Have an eye for detail and physical precision - you are good at looking at something and quickly noticing the whole piece plus all the visual details in order to make an assessment on the next step

  • Like working solo - many of your co-workers are dependent on your success in this role, but ultimately you are operating on your own

  • Are comfortable on your feet for 8 - 10 hours a day

Our ideal candidate is someone from the food industry who loves the challenge and hates the industry. They are accustomed to being on their feet all day, having to remember a ton of details, ensuring that everything is perfect, and watching literally 10 timers at once.

Please email catbirdhiring@gmail.com and tell us about yourself - do not just send a resumé. Make sure to write "WET ROOM ASSISTANT" in the subject line of your email. No phone calls please.
