UPDATE: As of Nov. 1 2020, this position is still open.
Skyline is positioned for growth and the time has come to get more people involved here at Arizona’s Premier Type Foundry. To that end we are seeking candidates for a second casterman, part-or full-time. Job description: operation and routine maintenance of Monotype-Thompson type casting machines with minimal supervision. No typecasting experience necessary, we will provide on-the-job training. Male or female. Preferred qualifications are a passion for type; some letterpress printing experience, strong mechanical engineering skills, willingness to work long and hard, and being open to living in a beautiful town in the central highlands of Arizona.
Skyline is one of the very few places in the world where the ancient and esoteric craft of typefounding is being preserved and practiced, and you can be an important part of that. Expect a low-key interview process with hands-on time that will give us both a chance to decide if it’s the right thing for the right person at the right time.
If you’re making a ton of money staring into a computer screen all day and rearranging the pixels, then good for you, knock yourself out. But if you’d like to earn a living wage practicing a 500-year-old craft with intellectual and mechanical challenges, and enjoying the admiration and respect of letterpress printers worldwide, then let’s talk.
