Note: This role is based in Montreal and the selected candidate must be prepared to work on site at our headquarters at 7471 Leonard de Vinci, Montreal (spoiler alert: our factory is pretty awesome)!

We’re looking for a Sewing Mechanic who will help troubleshoot, repair, and maintain industrial sewing machinery and mechanical equipment.

Sheertex makes the strongest pantyhose in the world. Don't just take our word for it—in 2018 we were named one of TIME's "Best Inventions"! Tens of thousands of customers have already been wowed by our growing range of products, from our bestselling Classic Sheers to our Reversible Crew Socks to Everywear Masks. We are a company that prides itself on using technology to advance a once stagnant industry. Through our initial start of creating a fibre that the hosiery industry had never used before to our ongoing push to automate our manufacturing processes; the journey of Sheertex has a common thread of striving to be innovative in our use of technology. Even our method of selling direct-to-consumer through our online channels was uncommon in the hosiery industry, and is just another way Sheertex does things a little differently.

As the Sewing Mechanic, reporting to the Senior Production Manager, you will be responsible for assisting in; installing, testing and troubleshooting, repairing industrial sewing machinery, electrical repairs and mechanical equipment relating to sewing.

What you can expect in the first 1-3 months: As you familiarize yourself with the company, culture and pace, you will learn the following:
- Understand and learn to maintain automated machinery and equipment;
- Assist in the upkeep of production materials orders when in shortage;
- Inspect equipment, structures, and production materials to identify and report the reason for errors in production and other defects;
- Differentiate machine type;
- Respond to production maintenance requests by Supervisors and/or Production Management in a timely manner;
- Perform all other duties as assigned or needed;
- Keep work area, production equipment and machines clean.

Requirements:
- Capable to stand throughout shift
- Able to work with technology
- Communicate in French or English
- Able to have a flexible work schedule
- Simple problem solving
- Inspect equipment and production materials to identify and report the reason for errors in production and other defects

Bonus:
- Experience with sewing machines or industrial sewing machinery
- Ability to evaluate options and create alternative solutions
- Basic experience with technology; scanners, computers, tablets
- Operates proactively
- Ability to prioritize and multi-task
- Handle challenges and work as a team
- Good understanding of Planned Preventive Maintenance (PPM)

Due to proprietary information and the nature of this position, if selected, we will request a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) be signed to enable a candid discussion of the role during the interview process.

The retail industry is notorious for its lack of diverse representation, and we're very aware of the research showing that women and other historically underrepresented groups are less likely to apply to a job if they don't believe that they meet all of the criteria.

Are you hesitant to submit an application because you're not sure if you check every box? Apply anyway!

We would love to hear from you and figure out what you can add to the culture here at Sheertex.
