Manufacturing Trainee

Manufacturing & Delivery team

Our Manufacturing & Delivery team is the backbone of our company, and we are looking to add individuals to our growing team who have an attention to detail, exceptional work ethic, and interest in working in product manufacturing. The Manufacturing team is responsible for delivering the highest quality products to our customers in a timely, safe and efficient manner. 

Manufacturing Teammate-in-Training

The Bryr Manufacturing Trainee is a team player who loves to work with their hands in a job that is predominately physical. As a trainee, you will come into the position with a passion and proven skill for beautifully made products, but there is no requirement for technical experience in clog making. We are excited to teach you our processes and train you on how we make the best clogs in the world! 

This job is meant for you if you’re a focused, efficient and detail-oriented person, who loves to make beautiful products and has no professional background in clog or shoe making. This is meant for you if you love refining your craft through repetition and continuous improvement. Our Manufacturing trainees thrive in team oriented places and love contributing to the success of the company. 

People who prefer working solo, default to a ‘no’, lack self awareness, who are not open to feedback, and who do not prioritize quality, safety and efficiency need not apply. 

As a Manufacturing Trainee, you will learn how to deliver the highest quality products to our customers in the most safe, efficient and productive way.  You will participate in our 6-month paid technical training program. As a manufacturing teammate-in-training you will be responsible for mastering all our manufacturing techniques, including stapling, lasting, cutting, prep and finishing, and learning the basics of our materials and LEAN manufacturing.  

You are part of a great team, and an important part of your job is collaborating productively with the whole team to meet your team's goals together. You will be trained on how we work together to deliver our product to our customers in a timely and efficient manner. 

Ultimately, we are looking for someone who has a passion for making beautiful products, loves finding innovative solutions and helps to evolve the way we do things to make our products better and better, supports their coworkers, and is wholeheartedly enthusiastic about growing with our business. If this is you, we can’t wait to meet you!
