Interested in a career in the Outdoor Industry? Lincoln Canoe & Kayak, established in 1959, is an industry original.  Founded under the premise of producing lightweight composite canoes and kayaks that encourage people to get outside and explore nature more. What could be better than this? Our premier manufacturing center, located on Water Street, Dock #3 in Amesbury MA, sits along the Powwow River in a repurposed ammunition holding World War II half dome. #coolworkspace

We are looking for a full-time Assistant Boat Builder to join our small team of proud, dedicated and talented builders. This is a manufacturing role that supports the building team performing a variety of production tasks. Do you love kayaking or canoeing? Work in a bicycle shop, outdoor retailer or paddle sports shop? This could be the next step to get into the industry with a manufacturer. We’re growing and there’s a lot of room to grow with us. Lincoln is committed to laying out a career path that keeps our employees engaged and proud to be a part of Lincoln.  What do you do for work? “I build handmade, custom canoes and kayaks” Nice! Rock n’ Roll.

Training will be provided in composite manufacturing and other aspects of our build process. You’ll be working alongside team members and experienced management staff to show you the ropes and build a solid foundation for you to “build on”.

Positivity, humility, kindness and a sense of humor are as important to us as efficiency and effectiveness. We’re serious about productivity with positive energy where we work. We have many long-time, loyal customers and have been acquiring new customers at a fast pace. Lincoln takes great pride in the way we treat all customers and fellow staff members. If you feel you have the desire, capability and mindset for this role, we want to hear from you.
