Position Summary

We are a growing design-build residential construction company based out of Squamish and we are looking for a Lead Carpenter to join our team. We focus on large renovations, additions, new builds and high-end commercial TI’s and specialize in producing well designed buildings with an unwavering focus on quality and efficiency. We design our own structural and architectural drawings in house and handle everything from start to finish.

The ideal candidate for the Lead Carpenter role has experience framing, forming, and finishing. They are punctual, work well in a team but have adequate competencies to work on their own. They are motivated, have a positive attitude and are looking to forward themselves in the construction industry. There is lots of room to grow with Blue Water.

We are a tight knit team, and we understand that there is more to life than just work, which is why we have all chosen the Sea to Sky to live, work and play. When we are working, we are producing very detail-oriented, quality work, but when we are playing, we are most often enjoying the outdoors and all that it has to offer. We are flexible with time off, enjoy powder days on the hill, have a fully stocked beer fridge in the office/shop and have foosball, darts and a pool table for after work. As much as we are looking for skilled team members, we are also hiring based on a good team culture fit. Come work hard and play hard with our team!
