SpacePole Inc. is looking for a new Warehouse Production Manager, who will be an important part of our team. You must have hands-on manufacturing experience to be considered for this position. You will report to the Finance and Operations Manager in Atlanta. Your primary day-to-day responsibility will include personnel management, production planning and controlling, ensuring the right lead times, quality assurance, managing the temporary workers needed to fill in peaks and identifying needs in assembly for purchase to execute. You will also be responsible for overseeing that the input from assembly into the ERP-system is valid and correct.

You will have a central role in managing the assembly facility in Atlanta. It is important you understand the culture of SpacePole Inc. and adapt the values and visions we have for doing business. You will be carrying a torch in regards to ensuring that processes are implemented in a professional manner that reflects the premium brand of SpacePole Inc. We expect you to continuously seek improvement and development opportunities in your function. To ensure you get the culture under your skin and fully understand the processes, you will have 5 days of training in Denmark soon after you come on board.
