Vortic Careers: Machinist

Vortic Watch Company is in need of a full-time CNC Machinist to work with our team in Fort Collins, Colorado. 

Vortic salvages and restores antique American pocket watch movements and converts them into one-of-a-kind wristwatches. 

The machining position involves operating Haas/DMG mills and lathes. Experience with Swiss and 5-axis machines is desirable. As a watch company, we work with difficult materials like titanium, very tight tolerances, and operate with a low quantity, high quality mindset.

The machinist will be responsible for keeping the machines operational, quality assurance of parts and tools, and cleaning/maintenance of the machines. The machinist must adhere to all safety standards, regulations, and operating instructions. 

To be clear, we are not looking for an operator. We are looking for a machinist that can set up parts, troubleshoot issues, and even do a small amount of programming for simple tools and parts.

A 4-day workweek is available from 7 am to 6 pm Monday through Thursday at our downtown Fort Collins, CO location (324 Jefferson Street). Requests for relocation assistance will be considered on a case-by-case basis. All positions are salaried with benefits. 

Starting salary is typically $50,000 but will depend on experience. 3-5 years of CNC machining experience and a deep understanding of the technical aspects of high precision, tight tolerance work is preferred but not required. On-the-job training and apprenticeship are required for the first 6 months at a minimum regardless of experience due to Vortic’s unique business model. 

Other benefits are included for all salaried employees such as access to Health Share programs, 401K match, and paid time off, although many employees are very happy to use our 4-day work week that we’ve had since 2015. Every Friday off in beautiful Colorado seems to be our most popular benefit.

Complete the form below to apply, and email your resume to both and as a follow up.

Machinists can start as soon as early as July.
