We are looking to add a Pre-Production Manager to our team:

  • Are you ready to work in a place that was rated a Happiest Company in 2017 and 2018?
  • Are you ready to apply your outstanding work ethic and organizational skills for a company making a real difference for families and elementary education?
  • Do you want to work with a team that trusts you, relies on your insight, appreciates your knowledge, and is blown away by your productivity and efficiency?
  • Are you ready for a job where the variety of work and opportunity for personal growth and learning are extraordinary?

As Pre-Production Manager, you will play a vital role in pursuing our mission by being responsible for the processes and teams that scan artwork, tally orders, and prepare items for production. You will plan, direct, and mentor a team of 5 direct reports and a fluctuating work force (5 – 40 people) based on seasonal activity. You will oversee operations and drive efficiency and continuous improvement.

Our ideal candidate will be fanatical about tracking the performance of processes and people and will be able to share the data in a clear, accurate, timely, and candid manner.

  • that you have no issue rolling up your sleeves and doing whatever work is required, and
  • a passionate drive for continuous improvement.

This position is responsible for the processes and teams that scan artwork and prepare items for production. This position works with both the sales and operations teams to ensure that work and information flows smoothly between these two departments.
