Pure Watercraft is creating revolutionary electric boat propulsion to ensure a future where boating will be clean, quiet, and powerful.  We seek talented Electro-Mechanical Assembly Technicians to manifest and build the products our end-users will experience each time they boat.  The quality of our built products will reaffirm to our customers, each and every time, the reasons why they purchased a Pure Outboard.  Our products are of a world-class design with an unparalleled performance.  Join us and be part of our world-class production team. 

Pure Watercraft has a unique, dynamic culture and is building an organization with a high autonomy, be-smart-and-move-fast mindset.  We are not your typical manufacturing company, and this position is not your typical assembly technician position.
