Slime Maker / Slime Alchemist (Job Listing)

Slime Maker / Slime Alchemist

About The Company
Slime Fantasies was founded in 2017 motivated by a deep passion for slime as a stress-relief toy for both young and old. We continuously innovate new slime concepts by combining beautiful colors and relaxing scents with satisfying textures. All of our slimes are handcrafted here in California. Our company originally started in a basement, then upgraded to a backyard shed, and is now handcrafting slime in a commercial warehouse (we have come a long way!). Since the founding of Slime Fantasies, our slimes have put smiles on more than 20,000 happy customers’ faces all around the world. We are a young and dynamic start-up currently consisting of 10 employees, and are looking for someone who shares our passion for beautiful, handmade slimes and wants to become part of the team.

About The Job

We are looking for a motivated, enthusiastic person to support our slime-making process. You will be making slimes that we are currently selling on our website by measuring raw ingredients (based on recipes) and mixing them together with the help of industrial mixers. Furthermore, you will be responsible for coming up with new, creative slime ideas as well as unique scent blends (we have more than 600+ fragrances and essential oils to choose from), and new fun textures by experimenting with the different ingredients. As our slime maker, you will be part of our weekly brainstorming where we come up with future ideas and plans together as a team. You will also learn everything you need to know about slime including the difference between all our slime textures, characteristics of high-quality slime, and when and how to fix sticky slime. If down the road you are interested in another area of the company, we offer opportunities for growth.

IMPORTANT: If you are not sure if you qualify for the job but are generally very interested, please don't hesitate to apply!
