Production Specialist | Pay: $17-21 per hour (full time)

A true Jack of All Trades the Production Specialist position has a hand in every manufacturing process here at Escape. Once fully trained, a Production Specialist will have the skills to make climbing holds, volumes, and training tools starting raw materials and ending with polished gems. This role incorporates molding (wood, fiberglass, and silicone), plastic production (polyurethane), post-production (belt sanders, drill presses, die grinders),  and wood products (epoxies, paint, branding irons). Climbers' interests ebb and flow seasonally so we need great people ready to jump in and crank out volumes when wood is hot or sink their teeth into molding so that we can launch a new hold line (or three).
