Industrial Design Internship

Overview

We are looking for a sharp-minded Industrial Designer who shares our same entrepreneurial spirit. Though a large portion of your duties will include soft-assembly and product fulfillment, the intention is to give you a well-rounded taste of how a small manufacturing business thinks, acts and plans for the future. All the way from raw lumber to retail shelves.

A Day at Well Made

In order to appreciate the depth of work it takes to conceive and breath life into a product, we're going to dig into the details. A typical workday will have you doing soft assembly of our products, packaging and fulfillment. That's not it, we'll turn you loose on our laser engraver, teach you professional finishing techniques in our 8K/cfm industrial spray booth and maybe you can even help us with some custom work.

We're looking for someone who wants to sweat the details and can help us trim the fat and make our work the best its ever been.

The Details

  • 16 hours per week minimum commitment (20-24 hours preferred)

  • $10/hour paid every two weeks

  • Preferred commitment through end of calendar year

  • We can work with your school if credit is needed

  • Free street parking, public transit right outside (Diversey @ Pulaski)

  • Full shop access (once aptitude is proven)

The Fun Stuff

At Well Made, your success is our success. We'll work to make sure you have something solid for your resume and your portfolio. You will make something, period. We have an excellent wood shop, photo studio, laser engraver, 4x8 CNC – all can be at your disposal if you can prove to us you can handle it. Want to learn? Just say the word.
