JOB TITLE: Sample Technician
HOURS: Full-Time
LOCATION: Bozeman, Montana, USA
ROLE: The Sample Technician works on a team with the Product Developer and the Designer through a process-oriented approach to refine and develop product initiatives as defined by the Head of Product. The Sample Technician is responsible for physical prototypes and is also a technical resource for the rest
of the team regarding materials and construction.

DUTIES: The Sample Technician will be responsible for physical assembly of development prototypes and reference samples. From this perspective the Sample Technician will also give feedback on the build, suggesting ways to streamline or simplify the construction while preserving the fit, function and
quality level of the original design intent. This will require extensive knowledge of sewing construction, production processes and machinery. It will also require communication and collaboration with all members of the internal Product Team.

The Sample Technician will document relevant build details such as type and quantity of raw materials, cut lengths, and sub-assembly stages during each build. This information will be submitted to Product Development for inclusion in the production documents. These documents will be checked for accuracy
by the Sample Technician during construction of the final reference samples prior to production.

The Sample Technician will also support the development process through the creation of mock-ups and test units as needed. These assemblies may explore new or unfamiliar materials or constructions and it is the responsibility of the Sample Technician to collaborate with the Designer to troubleshoot and rework assemblies in order to find solutions that further the development path.

The Sample Technician must be detailed and thorough. He/She will closely follow specifications and work through any errors, ambiguities or difficulties in collaboration with the rest of the Product Team so that the physical sample and the supporting documentation are in alignment with each other. Accuracy
and thoroughness will be more important than speed in the duties of the Sample Technician.

The Sample Technician will participate and feel ownership in the physical shop space. Regular tool and equipment maintenance, raw material labeling and organization and periodic cleaning will contribute to a tidy and orderly shop environment.
