High Art is a team of like-minded, talented people whose mission is to ship art the modern way. Our clients include galleries, collectors, businesses, and artists throughout the tristate area. Since the company was founded in 2014, we have established ourselves among our clients as a different kind of art handling company, and we aim to ultimately advance industry standards. As a team, we continually strive to improve ourselves and our systems. We need people with art handling experience who are committed to the same principles. Do you have the attitude and aptitude to join us?
As a technician you are responsible for the safe packing, transport, and installation of the art entrusted to us. We handle all manner of objects and in doing so encounter a range of challenges. We need people with the skillset and mental acuity to navigate such challenges successfully, relying on the company's knowledge base, your peers, and pure ingenuity. Most importantly, a comprehensive understanding of art materials and art history are essential to safely handle any piece you come across.
This is a leadership position, so at least two years past experience are required in a comparable role at an art shipping company. Technicians are paired with assistants, so in addition to overseeing projects, managing your crew’s time, and dealing with clients, you also supervise and train your assistant on the job to supplement their classroom training. From the start you are expected to bring expertise on advanced techniques, such as shadowboxing, folding paintings, crate and t-frame handling, precision installation, and driving routes in New York and the surrounding region.
We prioritize diversity on our team and offer this opportunity equally to all qualified candidates. Women are encouraged to apply. The position requires lifting loads up to 100 lbs, using power tools, and working on ladders. A current driver's license and clean driving record are needed. The majority of the driving is done by assistants, though technicians need to drive periodically.
If this sounds like a job you will find enriching, in which your talents will be put to good use, tell us about the education, experience, and skills that make you a strong candidate. Why do you want to work for High Art?
