About the Position

Metal Arts, LLC is seeking a Quality Control Technician for the Structural Steel industry to join our Quality team.  Metal Arts is looking for leaders in our industry, who want to make an impact on a growing small business.

QC Technicians at Metal Arts operate within the fabrication shop and ensure all Metal Arts products are of the highest quality. Our QC Technicians are required to inspect fabrications for both dimensional accuracy (fit), and weld accuracy. Quality team members at Metal Arts utilize tablets to record passing and failing fabrications.  Metal Arts is a technology focused company always seeking to provide the latest tools and resources for our team.

Typically, new QC Technicians will possess basic welding and fabrication skills, and Metal Arts will provide training and tools to become a well-rounded QC Team Member. QC Technicians will shadow and work with Metal Arts QC staff, and undergo on the job training before checking items independently. Metal Arts does not expect candidates to possess all required QC skills prior to starting their position.

Metal Arts maintains the highest standards of quality in our production process, and we expect our Quality team to uphold those values at all times.  Metal Arts Quality team is expected to own their process, and actively work to improve our processes and policies.
