Why are we here?

We’re obsessed with helping people live a better, healthier, and more fulfilling life. We offer products that make people’s lives better through moments they work so hard for, and the activities they live for.

The question “why?” drives us. We’re unafraid of new challenges, we constantly challenge ourselves, each other, and the status quo. We keep it loose, living for the good times and working hard to make them happen.

If this sounds like the type of company you’d like to be a part of, then we’d love to hear from you.

What’s the role?

This is a great opportunity for a meticulous design focused engineer that yearns to flex creative muscle to shape and improve new and existing product lines. As a Cycle Frame Structural Design Engineer at Trust, you will primarily be charged with the creation and the 3D modeling of future high-performance frame products built with a variety of manufacturing methods including weldments, castings, and composites.

We prioritize education and learning. If you think that you already know everything, then this probably isn’t the right place for you. But if you want to challenge yourself every day, live for a Kaizen environment, and aren’t afraid to speak up, ask questions, and listen intently, then we are your people.

With Trust, you will experience the variety and diversity of projects that would normally be reserved for a design consultancy but with the stability and benefits of a corporate environment. Our process lets designers work on a design from initial sketch through refinement, prototyping and into mass-production.

Who are you?

A self-learning, question asking, paradigm busting, convention challenging, open to any idea kind of person. Fun. An athlete. You have enough SolidWorks and Microsoft excel experience to take on projects and complete them in a timely manner. You are trained in mechanical drafting and are familiar with GD&T.

Superb at time management and capable of juggling multiple projects simultaneously. The spirit of the entrepreneur is strong in you - you take ownership of your projects and are driven by a need to leave things better than you found them.

You are organized, thorough and able to prioritize; a reliable and self-motivated team player, who’s able to work without close supervision.
