Vortic Careers: Watchmaking Technician

Vortic Watch Company is in need of a Watchmaking Technician to assemble wristwatches in our Fort Collins, Colorado facility.

Vortic salvages and restores antique American pocket watch movements and converts them into one-of-a-kind wristwatches, and Colorado Watch Company makes the most American-made wristwatches at scale today. Our assembly technicians must have the utmost patience, attention to detail, and have extensive experience in a similar role.

As a Watchmaking Technician for a wristwatch manufacturing company, you'll be responsible for assembling wristwatches, putting them through rigorous tests for quality assurance, and keeping track of a large number of different variations, models, and types of watches as well as all their components. Opportunities to assemble modern watches for Colorado Watch Company are also available in the future.

We are one of the only wristwatch manufacturers in the United States and are on a mission to make as much of a watch here as possible. We do things in Colorado that are typically done in Switzerland and it's your job to continuously improve our systems and processes in order to compete with the massive Swiss and Chinese manufacturers in our industry by making watches here in Colorado.

We have everything you should need here to do your job. We are open to changing the layout and setup of our workspace for you, but we do have a ton of natural light in our watchmaking room which we hope you’ll enjoy!

We are looking for a team player. Someone who’s not afraid to provide feedback to the rest of the team if there’s a way to improve a part, a system, or a process, but also someone who’s willing to roll up their sleeves and knock out a bunch of hard work during our busiest times of the year. Ideally, you’re a fast learner, you take feedback and criticism well, and you get along with your co-workers in a healthy, positive, and supportive environment.

All work is to be done in-person Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm at our downtown Fort Collins, Colorado location (324 Jefferson Street). Requests for relocation assistance will be considered on a case-by-case basis. All positions are salaried with benefits. 

The starting salary is typically $40,000 but is flexible and will depend on experience. 3-5 years of similar experience, specifically with the assembly of small parts will be requested. On-the-job training and apprenticeship are required for the first 3 months at a minimum regardless of experience due to Vortic’s unique business model. 

You will have Paid Time Off, access to a Healthcare program starting in 2025, access to a 401k with 5% match after 12 months, and we also have a bonus program based on company sales results. The more watches you help us make, the more we can sell, and as they say, "a rising tide raises all ships."
