iFixit's staff is the focal point of a global community showing people how to fix the things they own. We believe that we can make the world better by empowering people to take control of their hardware.

We are the world's foremost experts on Apple repair, and we've set the gold-standard for online repair documentation. We have already helped millions of people fix their own devices, and we plan to help tens of millions more.

We're looking for an experienced mechanic to join in our repair effort by creating unparalleled repair guides for power tools, cars, appliances, and much more. The ideal candidate is versed in small engine repair and maintenance, is familiar with hydraulic systems, and enjoys sharing repair knowledge with others. The position is a seasonal part-time contract with an intended end date, however, extensions may be possible.

As the ideal candidate, you should:

  • Relish tinkering and fixing! You probably have a toolbox at home or in your car, and while you love having the right tool for the job, you've made-do on more than one occasion.
  • Enjoy working with people and communicating precisely and accurately. You should know the difference between precision and accuracy.
  • Be dynamic and able to learn quickly, self-start, and be unafraid to ask questions.

    This position is available immediately at our downtown San Luis Obispo office. Remote opportunities are not available for this position. Prior work as a mechanic or repair person is attractive, but not necessary, neither is any specific degree.

    Fixit is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Because we are trying to teach every one to fix every thing, we need a team as diverse as our online community. We believe that it takes people of all backgrounds to help us fix the world. Therefore, iFixit does not discriminate based upon race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or any of the other important characteristics that make us unique and valuable.

    iFixit is committed to creating a diverse team--not only in who we hire--but through creating a supportive environment for all of our team members based on mutual respect and inclusivity.
