Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

Our shoes have a significant impact on our feet and our knees, spine, and overall posture. It is essential to have enough toe space for the overall foot to perform its function. Hence, as shoemakers, we do things differently - we develop, produce, and sell great barefoot that people love. We produce premium quality shoes, and we decided to strengthen our team with a product development specialist, an active colleague, and a shoemaking expert who wants to work for leaders in the shoe industry.

What are we looking for?
We are a dynamic and progressive company with an agile work environment, which requires a high degree of flexibility and adaptability.
You will be directly involved in the production processes, so you must understand the ins and outs of footwear creation and the manufacturing process.
Terminology such as construction materials in Dxf, hoof insoles, grading, moulds, and cutting knives should not be foreign to you.
You would have an excellent understanding of the footwear production technologies and follow new shoemaking trends.
It is also necessary to take into account the travel within Slovakia and foreign trips. For instance, visiting our suppliers and subcontractors within Slovakia and the EU.

We are looking for a skilled person who is spontaneous, a pro, and an expert. And someone who likes vibrant work culture.
We have a wonderful production team that will take you under their wings.
What you really need is energy, positivity, a desire to learn new things.

Employee perks, benefits

We offer meal tickets of €5.10 per business day. Team building & sports activities, a free pair of barefoot shoes after probation, discounts on our products and many other ever-increasing benefits. Accommodation provided in Zilina close to the office.
