Vertical Solutions

Field Carpenters, Installers, & Laborers (Traveling)

Full-time

 We design and construct our climbing walls with a welded structural steel frame, three layers of sheeting material, and finally various forms of wood, from a structural plywood base up to highly aesthetic hardwoods you see on the surface. As part of our team we’d love you to have professional on-the-job construction training either as a jack-of-all-trades or an experienced rough/finish carpenter. Most shifts when traveling are M-F between 7 am to 6 pm and averaging 50 hours per week, but the ability to work weekends with overtime is crucial for project completion in many cases.

Most climbing gyms are in major cities, so this job is a great way to make money working on challenging projects while traveling to different parts of the US. Housing is typically provided in Airbnbs, as the quality of life is extremely important to our company culture. Although extended personal time is supported and encouraged, we have no shortage of work for capable people. We are looking for candidates with long-term potential on our team. Additionally, Health Care options are provided after a short waiting period.
