Job Description

Geoship is on a mission to build the thriving geodesic world. We envision a future of inspiring Earth-Friendly villages that help human communities reconnect with the natural world. Geoship is a Social Purpose Corporation that will transition into a Multi-Stakeholder Cooperative. Our mission is one of co-operation and evolutionary purpose. This goes for the ceramic geodesic domes we build, and the skillful, courageous human beings we seek to attract.

We're on an infinite journey setting ourselves free from the dominant thought structures that limit human minds and political systems. We reframe problems, seek new solutions and operate with a learning mindset. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of nature and the determination to connect with the natural world at ever deeper levels. We understand the depth of this connection relates to the health of our relationships, with ourselves, our families, our communities, and the Earth.

Role Summary

Manufacturing is at the heart of what we do. The Geoship product is not only a ceramic dome, but also a highly automated manufacturing facility. By joining Geoship at this early stage, you will have the opportunity to master your craft, wear multiple hats, and participate in the development of one of the world's most advanced additive manufacturing technologies.

Your initial focus will be on mixing powder and water to make rock. More accurately ceramic-fiber composites that "fire" at room temperature. You'll be part of a 2-3 person team that works toward mastering the process of mixing ceramic materials, pumping it into molds, removing the ceramic parts from the mold, cleaning the molds, inspecting the parts, rinsing and repeating. We are continuously innovating, developing a new technology for mass production of bioceramic geodesic domes. When we transition from pilot production to full production this process will become highly automated.

You know what it means to fall in love with a process to work with skillful means, eye and heart to craft.

  • Work consciously with skillful means, eye and heart to craft.
  • Handle and transport materials (e.g. ceramic powders and components) and equipment (e.g. mixers and pumps).
  • Follow a set of procedures with care, while being able to adapt when and correct when something goes wrong.
  • Use power tools and machinery (e.g. forklifts and compression test machines) when needed.
  • Report issues with equipment or unsafe conditions.
  • Recognize opportunities for process improvements and participate in reengineering efforts.


  • Minimum 3 years experience with some construction, craftsman, agricultural, or mechanical trade is preferred.
  • Ability to meet the physical demands of the job (standing for long periods of time, lifting heavy loads of up to 40 pounds etc.)
  • Familiarity with power tools and machinery.
  • Commitment to safety rules.
  • Strong interpersonal skills with a high degree of initiative, and the ability to work alone and effectively with other people.
  • The ability to think outside the box and find innovative solutions.


Our North Star is the more beautiful geodesic world.

You'll experience working at a technology startup, where evolutionary purpose, wholeness, and self-management come full circle. We offer semi-flexible working hours, health benefits, and employee stock option plans with incredible growth potential.
