What’s it like to work for Wearable Technologies?

After working in Silicon Valley for a number of years, the CEO has always encouraged a “can do, no hiding” culture within the business. To ensure this working environment there are three guiding principles to WTL:

  • We exist to generate shareholder value (for us as well as our investors)
  • Our people should leave us with better CVs and life skills than when they arrive
  • We should have fun (annual ski trip)

 

Experience:

  • Practical experience of making garments and prototype textile samples
  • Be competent using an industrial lockstitch machine and have the ability to adjust the machine to suit the job in hand
  • Some pattern cutting experience would be useful along with an understanding of fit and sizing, particularly of outerwear products
  • A basic understanding of electronics would be advantageous but not essential for this very interesting specialist role
