Timber Frame Carpenter

We have a position for a timber frame carpenter open in our busy timber frame shop in McMinnville, Oregon. We are looking for an experienced, quality-oriented, and hardworking craftsman with house framing and general carpentry experience. Field experience is also important and valued, as we work on site during frame installations and also do other carpentry work when needed. While we are looking for a demonstrated level of skill and experience in a wood shop setting the addition of an understanding of layout, portable and stationary tools, CNC and/or CAD experience will all be valued but not required.

This job requires the ability to perform tasks in all areas and aspects of timber and general framing. The aptitude to work with tools, timbers, and materials are essential along with the capacity to lift and manipulate timbers of up to 50 lbs. and more. Some driving is to be expected and can result in longer commutes to occasional "local" projects, therefore a valid driver's license is required although you can expect most of your time to be spent in our shop. Occasional air travel is also required as we work not only locally and regionally but nationally as well.

New Energy Works has shops in both McMinnville, OR and Farmington, NY where we craft custom heavy timber projects using modern CNC and traditional tooling all the while raising these frames around the country. NEW operates on the triple bottom line philosophy of people, planet, and profit and we believe in the community of our co-workers. We proved this philosophy through the recession as we were one of the very few construction companies that chose not to cut back on benefits or earnings and didn't lay off our coworkers.

Please check out our website at www.newenergyworks.com and our sister company Pioneer Millworks at www.pioneermillworks.com for more information about the exciting work that we do with timber-framed homes and also the salvage and re-milling of timbers and other wood into flooring, beams, furniture and more.

This position is full year, full time plus with a great benefits package. This benefits package includes 70% company paid medical, paid holidays and vacation time, a 401k plan, profit-sharing as available, and we are also a 30% employee-owned company (ESOP) on our way to full employee ownership.

Resumes and cover letters only, replying to this ad. We don't discriminate for all the right reasons but are partial to smart people with lots of common sense. We apologize in advance, but we will not be able to respond to all inquiries.
