We are currently seeking a Production Manager whose primary responsibility is to plan, direct, and coordinate all production activities, production staff, equipment and to ensure that all project milestones and quality standards are being met.

As Production Manager, you would work closely with the General Manager / Owner, Project Managers, Shop Foreman and Department Heads on a daily basis and would be in charge of the entire production process, including entering and tracking production scheduling; making any on-the-fly adjustments to the process; coordinating the ordering and receiving of raw materials with our procurement department; and coordinating installations and/or shipping of goods with project managers.

As Production Manager, you would also be responsible for making sure that the inventories of supplies are maintained at their optimal levels in order for production to proceed without interruption. Just-in-time production techniques are employed at the company, making constant communication between the production manager, and the procurement department even more important. With your office located on the production floor, you would utilize a Mac computer for scheduling, planning, and coordination using a well developed multi-user Filemaker Pro database, as well as email and cell phone.

As Production Manager you would also be responsible for holding monthly shop and safety meetings and in collaboration with the general manager / owner, stay informed of new production technologies and management practices which can be incorporated in the production process. If needed, additional courses to become certified in various quality and management systems would be provided for the right individual.

To fulfill this key role within our company, our ideal candidate must have excellent interpersonal, communication and organizational skills and possess a strong work ethic with a real “can do” attitude and approach to life.

Our ideal candidate must also have at least five years of management experience, preferrably in a sign related or manufacturing business. No specific academic requirements, but coursework that proves helpful includes production and manufacturing systems, industrial engineering, industrial management, business administration, economics, accounting, finance, organizational behavior, psychology and sociology.

This is a salaried position which may require more than 40 hours a week, especially when production deadlines must be met. We provide health coverage through Kaiser Permanente, and a generous time off policy.
