Our mission is two-fold:

Empower businesses with
the highest quality signage

We help people put their best foot forward. In an age where signage is often disposable, a sign made to last can speak volumes. It may not be the easiest route to take, but we think it’s worth it.

Create opportunities for
a new generation of craftspeople

It’s more important than ever to preserve skilled craft, while pushing the boundaries of smart manufacturing. We think of each sign as commissioned art for companies—and we see that to the end.

Behind the Scenes »

Learn everyday

Because each sign is one-of-a-kind, there’s endless opportunities to challenge ourselves and learn from each other. We’ll never stop trying to get better at what we do.

Belong to a community

People are at the heart of every connection we build. We cover basic needs like healthcare—as well as fun stuff, like after hours shop access.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO I NEED?

3-5 years work experience is required for any fabrication role. Our team small, so we don’t have any entry level fabricators. Only have school experience? We may offer a 3 month internship that may lead to employment (available after 2021).

WHAT DOES COMPENSATION LOOK LIKE?

Compensation depends on mastery of skills, which are evaluated with tests. At a basic level, all fabricators are required to have mastery in their department, and basic proficiency in other areas.

CAN I WORK REMOTELY?

Nope, because collaboration is key to everything we do. Even if you have all the tools and gadgets, we need all fabricators to work out of our studio in Berkeley, CA.

WHAT'S YOUR HIRING PROCESS?

Our hiring process is lengthy—because we hire the best! Our screening process involves at least:

  1. Online application
  2. Phone screen
  3. In-person interview
  4. In-person proficiency test
