Black Dog Traders, the company that restores and restomods FJ40-era Land Cruiser SUVs, is hiring for five positions: shop foreman/manager, lead technician, body/paint tech, mechanic, and fabricator.

The company, which is based in Dallas, Texas, is looking for applicants that are passionate about Toyota Land Cruisers. The foreman/manager position, for example, will favor applicants with Toyota Master Automotive Technician certifications, ASE credentials, and/or specific experience with the 40-Series Land Cruiser. That position requires at least 10 years’ experience with Toyota vehicles or custom-built vintage cars, and it’s a working manager position, says company boss Austin Peterson.

Black Dog Traders will soon move into a larger 14,000-square-foot facility in the city’s hip Dallas Design District, and the company is looking for a team that can help grow the business.

“Really, we are looking for die-hard car addicts who couldn’t see themselves in any other industry,” Peterson told in an email. “We’re looking to build a team of passionate and knowledgeable folks who can help us to streamline this whole operation.”

Interested parties can send their application information to Peterson himself, at As part of the process, applicants need to include their name, contact information, a cover letter, a resume, and the particular position they’re interested in.
