Paint Apprentice

Production – Brooklyn, New York
Department Production
Employment Type Full Time
Minimum Experience Entry-level

Colossal Media is the world’s largest mural provider for global brands, ad agencies, and art galleries


We are looking for intelligent, energetic, focused, curious people that excel under extremely challenging circumstances to join us as paint apprentices for our NY based production team. 

 If you can use a brush that’s great, but if you've painted houses that’s actually better. We can teach you to paint but we cannot teach you to be unstoppable. You will need to have achieved that before you found Colossal. If you've ever landscaped, framed a house, worked in a kitchen, done time in the military, been a roofer (or worked anywhere that is both physically and mentally difficult) then we'd love to meet you. 

We are a no bullshit solutions based biz, this approach has not only allowed us to set the standard for quality in our industry but also reset that standard on a daily basis. 


This position is both mentally and physically intensive and our standards at Colossal are uncommonly high. As a baseline, we work really long hours and work many days without breaks outside in the elements year around. Our expectation for those who complete our apprenticeship program is to go on to make great murals with us by leading or supporting large production teams while also teaching and training as we go. 



The Basics:

  • Superior work ethic
  • Zero fear of heights 
  • Adaptability, persistence, talent, and positive attitude
  • A home in NYC
  • A good alarm clock
  • Ability to travel up to 1 week/month 
  • Ability to lift up to 50 lbs
  • Valid driver's license and a dislike for seasonal IPAs/Cider is required

The Nitty Gritty:

  • Naturally live by our pillars: hustle, exploration, awareness, genuineness
  • Speak up with respectful radical candor
  • Obsession for excellence
  • Never give up - solution mindset
  • Be thoughtful, self-reflective, empathetic, and adaptable


  • Resume 
  • Cover letter (not your resume) please use your cover letter to highlight experience from your resume (or your life) which fulfill the requirements listed above
  • Artwork samples (post the URL to your website or social media account in the designated area of the application...if you don't have one, make one)
  • References
