Product Assembly Position

Trickster is a small family-owned growing tourist trade business started in 2014 by siblings Rico and Crystal Worl with the mission to promote innovative Indigenous design. While Rico and Crystal are no longer involved in the day-to-day operations this position is for, we have an online retail store and wholesale operations in Anchorage and supply gift shops, museums, and bookstores across the country.  We pride ourselves in producing high quality Northwest Coast Formline art, gifts and more that come from our heart and what we call a gift from our ancestors.

This is a great chance to join a team to learn the gift industry, light production and small business management owned by an Indigenous family.  We have a small, hard-working, and positive team and we are looking for additional team members to keep up with the growth of our business.  If you have a positive attitude and enjoying working with a diverse group of people; if you are interested in the business of making Indigenous products; if you are interested in working in a light production business; if you are interested in contributing to a fast-growing startup company, we would love to hear from you.

You will be making a range of gifts and souvenir products, from earrings to key chains to zipper pulls and magnets. This entry level position has potential for growth into other areas of the business that range from retail to wholesale, inventory, and sales.
