Watchmaker’s Apprentice

Fort Collins, CO 80524
Salary: $30,000.00 to $40,000.00 /year

Want to learn an invaluable skill that almost no one in the world knows? Want to join a rapidly growing company making some of the coolest products around? Are you patient, good with your hands, and want to make a career out of your next job? If so, you’re in the right place.

Vortic Watch Company salvages and restores antique American pocket watches and turns them into one of a kind wrist watches. We have multiple watchmakers who literally make the watches we sell. Each one is hand-made, one at a time, by an individual. No mass production here. Every day, and every watch, is different.

As one of the only American watch manufacturing companies, and one of Colorado’s Advanced Manufacturing companies, our business is growing rapidly and ESSENTIAL. We have not, and will not shut our machines down for any reason.

This is a Full-Time position and the applicant MUST be local to Fort Collins or the Northern Colorado area. We work four 10 hour days, Monday to Thursday 7am to 6pm. That does mean early mornings and long days, but it also means EVERY FRIDAY OFF. Three day weekends are even nicer if they’re every weekend.

You will work directly for one of our watchmakers and slowly learn the skills needed to build our watches. Once you’ve successfully learned all aspects of our manufacturing system and shown your capabilities, you’ll be able to start building watches with the rest of the team.

We are looking for someone who’s patient, positive, and has steady hands. If you love solving problems, making things, and watching something come to life before your eyes, this might be the job for you.
