Help Wanted!

Posted on Jun 27, 2023

We are looking for full-time canoe builders to join our team! In its most modern form, we are composite technicians using techniques and tools typically only seen in the aerospace industry. We are proud to do this locally in Kailua in our mission to build the world's best outrigger canoes. Positions start at $15 and range to $25/hr with experience. No direct experience is necessary, but examples of work, art, or projects demonstrating your skill, willingness to learn, and passion are helpful. An interest in paddling is always a plus.

The initial role will focus on lamination, the most crucial step in canoe building. Other tasks include materials handling, mold preparation, mixing epoxy, wet layup, vacuum bagging, autoclave processing, sanding, and repairs. With experience, we encourage builders to learn all aspects of our production, including finish work and spraying.
