Who You Are
You are a natural problem-solver with a bias towards action and exceptionally high standards for your work. You pick up new skills quickly - especially when it comes to building, improving, and repairing things - and you know that great work on individual tasks is essential for big-picture success. You’re quick on your feet, unfazed by challenges, and care deeply about the presentation of spaces in which you work. You may not be an expert General Contractor in every respect, but have a grasp on the basics and know when to bring others into the fold. You also have the following:
- Confidence with tools, basic plumbing and electrical work, patching and painting, wall mounting, furniture assembly, and other similar tasks
- No concerns about carrying up to 50 pounds
- The ability to work flexible hours (e.g. mornings, evenings, weekends) to accommodate Knotel members’ schedules
