Job Description:

ABOUT WALLA WALLA FOUNDRY
You've probably seen art built at Walla Walla Foundry, but didn't know it. Walla Walla Foundry is one of the largest fine art fabricators in the world. Originally founded in 1980 as a bronze casting foundry, we now have over 100 employees and we produce work in a range of materials and through multiple processes.

THE JOB
Depending on project workload and staffing, the Wax Tech works collaboratively with other wax room techs to perform one of the following key task/roles:

Wax Pouring: Prepare molds to be rinsed with wax. Pours/rinses hot molten wax into molds to create wax patterns.
Tooling: Inspect and manicure wax patterns to ensure the highest quality part for the casting process.
Sprueing and Glueing: Assemble and seal all parts and ceramic pouring cups, per Foundry procedures.

For all tasks, use tools such as knives, dental tools, soldering irons, small propane torches, drills and other hand tools. Over time, one specific task may become the employee's primary responsibility.

ARE YOU A GOOD FIT FOR THE WAX ROOM?
If you answer yes to many of these questions, you may be a good fit!

Do you like working with your hands? You have experience working with hand tools, and you have done work that required good hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity.
Do you prefer a job that is physical and active? And, you don't mind getting dirty or working in a hot, noisy environment.
Do you approach work with an attention to detail? You don't just go through the motions. You put in the effort to do something well and correct, even if it takes more time and energy.
Do you like working with others? Learning from others and creating with others; asking questions so you really understand. This isn't assembly work and working with others to get feedback and share ideas is important.
Are you a team player? You are flexible and do what needs to get done?
Are you reliable? You take pride in doing what you say you'll do, like striving to meet a deadline or showing up regularly as scheduled and on time. You approach work with urgency.
Do you prioritize safety at all times? That includes wearing required PPE like respirators.
Are you looking for a career and not just a job? You want to grow your skills and contribute, not just get a paycheck.
