Foreman - Specialty Vehicle Manufacturer
Karpatia Trucks - Atlanta GA

You will be responsible for overseeing daily operations at the workshop to ensure completion of projects, where our number one priority is the customer’s satisfaction, followed closely by the quality of the work.

Right now it’s all contractors, so your duties will include helping ownership to hire workers, arrange workshop buildout (machinery and tools) and secure suppliers of raw materials and equipment.
About Karpatia Trucks
We build mostly food trucks and concession trailers but also do anything else special on wheels that comes along - from mobile flower stores to boiler promotion trucks and tiny homes.

It’s a very new shop - we are a European company having had success exporting to the USA to the extent we felt comfortable to set up operations. That means it’s a wide-open space for you to make your mark.
Duties and Responsibilities

You’ll have the top supervisory role in the shop, directing/supervising all the work and fixing issues as they pop up, both for other shop employees and third-party contractors. So what’s that all mean?

Get stuff done:

  • Supervise various phases of construction/ installation of water, electric, plumbing/gas, equipment
  • Delegate responsibilities and projects to crew members and contractors
  • Small shop and crew so your own manufacturing skills will be put to use too - i.e. hands-on foreman
  • Signaling to ownership what’s needed in terms of adequate resources and staffing to meet project schedules and needs

Do some management:

  • Supervise and train workers - Recruiting, hiring, training, managing and mentoring employees and contractors
  • Developing and managing project budgets and quality standards for all builds

Track and Trace:

  • Understand the project plans and specifications, blueprints and (shop) drawings
  • Regularly reporting project status
  • Assist accounting in tracking costs i.e. properly hand them all receipts
  • Responsible for deliveries and record keeping.
  • Maintain daily records of all significant project facts, events and conditions.
  • Help accurately track and report daily work hours for crew, equipment utilization and quantities of work performed to manage capacity planning and project budgets.

House in order:

  • Responsible for arranging for maintenance and repair of equipment, including keeping equipment serviced, lubricated, and in good working order, including good housekeeping.

Wishlist:

  • Ability to supervise and lead a crew
  • Motivated and self-disciplined
  • Reliable and punctual
  • Knowledge of and ability to operate equipment such as shear, press, MIG and TIG welding
  • Must be able to communicate fluently in the English language, both verbally and in written form.
  • Valid, current driver’s license
  • Decision-making skills for selecting personnel and subcontractors for specific tasks and jobs to meet deadlines and budgets.

Schedule

  • Mo-Fri 8-5

Education and Training Requirements
No formal education of any kind is required - your previous jobs and credentials earned working will speak for themselves. Previous experience in food trucks or RV’s preferred but we know it’s super niche so if you are in an adjacent field of construction or fabrication and you can explain why your experience is relevant we’re happy to hear you out.

A degree in something industry-relevant such as RV’s, concession trailers or carpentry would be terrific but is not required if you have equivalent experience.
Experience Requirements
Five or more years of relevant experience, of which minimum of two years as Lead on a crew i.e. Foreman.
